Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

@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!

i wish we had the same camera from covergirl ads haha. i don't mind at all makeup looks are meant to be shared. thanks!Smiley Happy

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

@Tenngal: Love your e/s. I love purple and green together, they're pretty flattering for my dark brown eyes!!

 

 

I haven't had the chance to do the challenge yet, for a couple of reasons (like I just received my Naked palette, so I had to try this before doing this challenge!!). But I'm a big fan of colorful make-up. My favorite combos are green and pink, navy blue and peach and I mix purple with everything!! (But if I had to pick, I think it would be yellow and purple!). I don't have a good camera, but I'll try to take a decent one and post it here tomorrow!!

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

@natural beauty: GREAT look! I never think to mix the colors side by side. I'm always going up and down. And on that note, here is the long promised pic! It's Red sparks ( which is really a light pink shimmery mica flake) on top and some unidentified ciel blue that I pressed myself from loose pigments. Oh, and ransom liner by UD. Smiley Happy

 

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

@mermadelove   i love your eyeshadow its gorgeous!Smiley Happy

I'm the total opposite: I always mix side by side and not up and down!! But it's something I gotta try! Looking at your pics, you always have gorgeous e/s, so I must try it your way, hehehe!Smiley Wink

 

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

@mermadelove:  Yea--the long-awaited photo has arrived and it looks great!!!  Your eyeshadow combo is fantastic!  I'm going to have to try applying my shadow up and down, because like ohhenri, I always go side to side.

I'll try to take another photo before this week's challenge is over.  Hope everybody keeps the photos coming cause I love to see everyone's different looks!

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

this  is so much fun i cant wait until next week ive been working on my double wing eyeliner. if you need help try youtube i looked it up because since i dont do bold eyeliner very often it, im looking forward to it

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

Hi gals! Ok. Confession time: TOTALLY intimidated by the double wing liner look!!! I don't even OWN liquid eyeliner because it always looks like a demented two year old applied it when I try! Can I pull of this look with gel/cream eyeliner???

*looks about nervously*

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

@mermadelove  of course you can cuse any type of liner you like you just have to have two wings. its funny because im terrible at gel/cream liners and i prefer liquid. hahaSmiley Happy

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

Hmmmmm, maybe I'll try it with two different colors, so it's not so obvious if all four lines aren't perfect!!!!

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

im saving the challenge look for the weekend because i dont even wear eyeliner on a regular basis

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

This is too funny.  I just bought a new liquid liner to try out a few days ago (Hourglass Script Precision).  We'll see if it is as precise as some reviewers have claimed it to be.  Excited!

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

Ok. As promised, I did the double wing with two different colors! The black is UD 24/7eye  liner in Perversion and the other is UD  24/7 Shadow Pencil in Clash. I also used Lise Watier glitter liner in Midnight Star

 

But this is what it looks like close up:

 

 

And this is a picture of the completed look:

 

 

As usual, my crappy camera doesn't do it justice, but at least you can see that I actually did it in the smaller pic!!!

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

@mermadelove:  That is gorgeous.  I am inspired to do a two colored double wing sometime this week or next. 

 

Today, I did a single color but I really like the way it turned out.  The eyeliner I used did a pretty good job but we'll see how long it lasts (I hope it doesn't dry out too fast or the edge goes bad). 

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

@mermadelove:  You're double-wing eyeliner makeup looks like a pro job!  It's absolutely beautiful! 

I haven't done a wing eyeliner look very many times because I usually have on so many eyeshadow colors, etc., and, therefore, haven't had much practice at it, but I'm going to give it a try.  I may have to do a single wing until I get more flying experience under my belt before I try the double-wing trick, ha ha.

You have the bad hair day, now there's bad eyeliner day!!!!!!!

I totally flunk this week challenge. I did it 3 times, only to end up taking the wings away!!! I'm bad, really bad with eyeliners!! I only started to wear some this year ( I used to just put some on my waterline). I'm making progress with the basic of eyeliner, but I'm still far from the wings!! Not once this week were the 2 eyes similar... And none of them were decent :'(

 

I just hope to do better next week Smiley Wink Have a great week-end! ( I won't wear any make-up this week-end, I'm going sailing/horse back riding!!!)

Re: You have the bad hair day, now there's bad eyeliner day!!!!!!!

OK, I attemped to do the double-winged eyeliner--and I DO mean attemped, ha ha.  I am going to post a picture even though it is bad, bad, bad.  I should probably post it under the "Beauty Disasters" thread, but here goes...

I got the wings way too far apart and not even at all, ha ha.  But I did want to let ya'll know that I did try the challenge.  If I have more time, I may try it again, but I've just been in too big a hurry all week.  I was in a big hurry when I did the liner job in the photo.  It was funny actually.  I was putting on my makeup and thought "gosh I need to try the double-wing eyeliner" so I ran to the computer, pulled up YouTube really quick, stood there and watched half of a video tutorial and ran back to apply the double wings.  I never should have tried it when I was in such a hurry, ha ha.

I hope you all get a good laugh out of it anyway. Smiley Happy

Re: NEW CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK thread

haha i had a hard time with the double wing too. its okay its not an everyday look so i know everyone had a little difficulty. im sad to say i will be failing this weeks challenge because i dont really have anything thats good for my skin except my bareminerals foundation. i was going to get some more stuff but got to pay the credit card off first because if i even buy a piece of gum the swat team is gunna come. hahaSmiley Happy

Re: You have the bad hair day, now there's bad eyeliner day!!!!!!!

tenngal, WHAT are you talking about?!?!? As usual, your makeup looks GREAT! You have really nice eyes and short of putting on false eyelashes sideways, I think anything you did to them would look great! Smiley Very Happy

Re: You have the bad hair day, now there's bad eyeliner day!!!!!!!

@mermadelove:  ROTFLMAO!!!  You crack me up!  Thanks for the compliment!  Smiley Happy

Re: challenge of the week

im just wondering if anybody has thought about some more ideas for challenges im having a hard time coming up with more.Smiley Indifferent

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.  (:

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!
