The latest episode of American 美女 Star was definitely an emotional one. When episode 12 began, four contestants remained: Axel, Oz, Lucy, and Diana. Their challenge was to create a look inspired by the elements: earth, air, fire, and water. Trust, they delivered.

Lucy was tasked with "air," which is arguably one of the more challenging elements to conjure up. Silvia felt like Lucy's technique was a little too sloppy and unrefined, but all the judges were in consensus that Lucy's look was creative and "stepped outside of the box."
"Earth" was Diana's assignment. She kept the look simple and pretty, which made the judges feel like she played it a little too safe. They were especially unimpressed with the wig she chose, pointing out that the colors could have been better integrated into the overall look. Judge Leah Wyar (former COSMO beauty director, hey!) noted that it would have helped if she had "owned" her choices, instead of wavering.
Oz created the "water" look—and this is where the episode took an intense turn. Oz had a hiccup and had to start over after the challenge had already begun. While judge Yu Tsai felt like this was a brave decision, Ashley thought she simply didn't plan appropriately. Ultimately, the judges felt like Oz's creation veered too much into costume-makeup territory.
The judges all agreed that Axel has, impressively, been improving since episode 1. He won the challenge—and $5,000 of Revlon products. Diana and Oz were left in the bottom two: Diana's makeup was too simple and safe, while Oz's look was a bit too "costume." Oz was sent home.
