Take the Challenge: Palette Parade

[ Edited ]

Hi. My name is Bombshell and I am an eye shadow-aholic. I love it. It makes me so happy. It is getting out of control. Upon counting only those palettes with 3+ shadows I have a total of 43. They each deserve love and attention. They all deserve their own 5 minutes (or days in the case) of fame. My Plan is this: One by one the Palattes shall parade through the open space on my vanity. Starting this Monday, each week I will use only one palette per work week (M-F) and cheat on the weekends. I will use them one by one until I have used them all for  5 day period. I will use them in alphabetical order. I have alphabetized my palettes and started with those that begin with #'s, lowest number to highest, and the A-Z. On Saturday and Sunday (depending on what CalamityJane comes up with) there might be a look or color of the day. In addition to the palette, single shadows and eyeliner may be used (:smileywink: ) in addition to the weekly palette. All looks should mainly come from the palette of the week. This way I can be fair to all of my palettes & all of my older palettes that haven't quite gotten the appreciation they deserve will get some time in the sun. At the end of the week if I was successful I will write the date beside the palette on the list. If I can't get at least 5 days worth of looks from them it is likely time to put them in a TSB or give them to a friend that will love them.  I am hoping this will help me appreciate what I've got rather than constantly thinking I need something new. I am not promising not to buy any shadows in the almost year it will take me to complete this little journey. That is just not realistic.I will just have to use them on weekend cheat days.  I am hoping the experience will at least make me more grateful for all the wonderful things I have & save me some $! LOL This is about accountability. I invite any and all to join. Feel free to make up your own rules and reward system. Just post them here and I will support you in your efforts any way that I can. Not all of us will be able to follow the same rules but we can certainly all support one another! 

 

Courtesy of Mafan---New Rule* If you absolutely DO NOT like a palette, you have the option of setting it aside for a TSB/give away and moving on to the next palette on your list. No sense in wearing make up you don't like for 5 whole days!Make up is supposed to make us happy. 

 Courtesy of JaimeLove---New Rule* A holiday (including your birthday,anniversary or graduation) is an acceptable cheat day! (BRILLIANT)

I ran late today too so I just used the light purple in my palette. Nothing to detailed or amazing.  Cold air makes my eyes water to the point of ridiculous!  Stay safe & warm mafan!!  :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade

Of course it's not bad, especially for your wallet. If you're hanging out here I'm sure there's something that is your obsession. :smileyhappy:. And if you have a bunch of single shadows that don't get love that you want to use, you can always come up with your own plan to play along.

Aw, thanks!  I'm hoping I can fix my brows this week so they're a bit more presentable.  I'm really excited to play with KVD, I haven't given it the love it deserves and I was swatching some color combos tonight so I have a few ideas.  :smileyhappy:

The photos were all done at the end of the day, so there was a touch of fading.  Overall, I was really happy with how week one went!  I think week two will be the Kat Von D Spellbinding Palette with Sugarpill/Inglot loose pigment wild cards.

Trying to explore my dark side today! :smileywink: Brights don't scare me in the very least but dark dramatic eyes scare the pants off of me. I never feel like I have done it the right way! Any tips you beauties want to share on dark, dramatic eyes would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Take the Challenge: Palette Parade

When working with dark colors, always work your way from light to dark, building up the shadow a little at a time. That really helps when it comes to blending. Then it's just getting the balance right, and of course, practice! But from what I can tell from the picture, you did a pretty good job!
