Re: challenge of the week

@naturalbeauty21:  I think you've done a GREAT job of coming up with challenges and have us covered for several weeks, actually months, to come!  Don't worry about it yet and relax and enjoy.  Like I said, you've worked hard and are doing great and by the time we need more challenges, I'm sure that you'll have gotten plenty of suggestions.  I just put up a sticky note on my monitor to remind me to get some ideas whenever I get a chance to start catching up on all the back issues of InStyle, Elle, Marie Claire, etc., laying over beside my desk in a stack, ha ha.  If I don't get caught up before I have surgery on my shoulder in August, then that'll be the perfect time for me to get caught up on all the magazine and get ideas.  Anyway, all I really wanted to say was you're doing a great job with this thread and don't worry!

Are we supposed to post the pictures on this thread? Maybe you should make a new thread for each week so it's not so hard to find the pictures in between comments about your ideas? Thanks :smileyvery-happy:

Creating new threads for this topic is not necessary.  It is pretty easy to see each challenge as they are posted in the opening thread (first post).  One way to keep track of this thread is to bookmark it.  This should appear when clicking the options tab to the right hand side of a post:

The bookmarked threads should be visible on the my setting tab, subscriptions and bookmarks. 

------------------

Anyway, does SPF count?  Currently trying the Argan oil and seeing if it actually good for my skin or not (not on the face cause I'm a bit apprehensive about changing up certain aspects of skincare).  Not bad so far.

I didn't change up any of the makeup I usually use, but what I normally use contains a few good-for-my-skin products anyway.  So I used Kate Somerville Protect SPF 55 Serum Sunscreen as the first step in my makeup preparation all week, which is good for my skin because it contains antioxidants and sun protection.  I also used Dior's DiorShow Maximizer Lash Plumper Primer & Serum which is not only a mascara primer, but also a good-for-your-lashes serum that contains a cell-conditioning complex made up of hydrolyzed soy proteins that promote long-term lash growth, strength, and vitality.

Those are the two products that I used as part of my daily makeup prep that are good for me that are outside of my regular skincare routine.

Re: challenge of the week

Hi there! Sorry I've been incognito! I didn't change what Inormally use, either because most of my stuff is good for you anyway. I use Juice Beauty Organic cleanser and my Mia, Korres Wild Rose serum and Moisturizer, Caudalie Beauty Elixir, Tarte Cheeck stain and Tarte Lighst, Camera, Splashes mascara.. Only my eye shadow was not "natural and healing," as it's UD. But you HAVE to use UD for real color and sparkle! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: challenge of the week

Well it is not that urgent seeing as there are challenges provided until September 15.  If an idea hits you, write it down and add later.  (:

@naturalbeauty21:  Ooooh, aquamarine and orange sounds like a fun combination that I never would have thought of.  I can't wait to see your photo!  Hurry up and post...I'm excited!

@naturalbeauty21:  GREAT look!  I'm going to have to try those two colors together.  I can still see the orange in the pic just fine.  But I know how you feel because in my photo you can't really tell that the inside shade is mint green.  It looks washed out.  I think camera's just can't pick up the full effect of our artistry, ha ha.  If we only had the kind of camera they take the Cover Girl ads with, we'd be looking great, ha ha.  Seriously, I hope you don't mind if I copy your look one day when I'm wearing the appropriate outfit for the colors cause it looks great.  Very creative!

@prettyinpa:  Sounds like you've got a good plan worked out.  I wish you could take pics and post them.  I'd love to see some of your looks!  :smileyhappy:

@sarithor:  I can't wait to see your photos from this week's challenge!  I'm sure you'll have some really creative eyeshadow apps to show us.  This will be fun! :smileyhappy:

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

@naturalbeauty21:  Thanks for taking the time to start up a new Challenge of the Week thread.  I'll miss officegal's thread, but I understand how much time Beauty Talk can consume without even realizing it.  I've been spending much less time on BT myself, too, but I still want to participate in the Challenges because it's fun, so thank you for stepping up and leading the effort!

Yay, a new week and a new challenge! Unfortunately for me, lipstain is not my forte!! I only own one, UD lip envy in greedy, and it is a little more bright than I like for work. So, this is going to be a week-end challenge for me!!!
