Re: challenge of the week

thanks. for some reason i always want to plan WWWAAAAYYYY in advance. i kindof already thought another challenge. maybe something like if youve ever seen a flower or something that most beautiful or unusual color you could try the mimick the color with your eyeshadow..just a thought dont really know yet.

Re: challenge of the week

so was anybody able to use almost all products that were good for you skin? i wanna know i love hearing peoples looks and how well they completed the challenges Smiley Happy

Re: challenge of the week

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 Smiley Very Happy

Re: challenge of the week

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. 

Re: challenge of the week

Oh my goodness I've gotten way behind.  Next week I plan to participate!

Re: challenge of the week

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! Smiley Very Happy

Vintageortacky has a great one!!!!!

 

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

What a difficult challenge for me this week! I'm not really good with eyeliners (I've tried pencil, liquid and gel!!). I always do one eye pretty good, than the second one never looks the same as the 1st one!!. So, I usually just line my upper waterline instead and it kinda do the trick otherwise, my make-up is ruined!!!! (and since I'm on tight schedule in the morning, I don't have the time to do it again, so I just skip this part!).

 

But, I watched a lot of videos this morning on youtube to help me...As they say, practice makes perfect, so we will see!!

 

(And I tried to take a picture of my 2 colors e/s and I'm a pretty bad photographer, or my camera isn't really good...b/c all of the pictures are blurry Smiley Sad

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

@mermadelove:  Glad to have you back!  Can't wait to see your looks for this week's challenge (July 11).  I hope you take at least one photo cause I love seeing your makeup looks!
Smiley Happy 

I am going to love this week's challenge since I love bright eyeshadow and eyeliner!  I won't have any problem fitting "white or any kind of brightening eyeliner or eyeshadow" into my routine, because that's normal for me, ha ha!  I'll try to take a picture this week if I get a chance.  (Don't worry, I won't do a double eyeliner this week, lol.)

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

This week's challenge is going to be so easy and fun for me!  I love wearing purple lipgloss and I wear it frequently.  I'll try to remember to take a photo of some of my favorite purple glosses to post.  I can't wait to see (or hear about) what purple glosses everyone is going to wear this week.

Smiley Happy

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

This week's purple gloss challenge I'll actually be able to do ! Although my purples tend to be more on the fushcia/magenta range. I just haven't been able to do alot of makeup sinc eI've been working nights-- I'm afraid that in a sleepy moment I'll rub my eyes and then--disaster!! I'll end up scaring my patients or make them think they are having a nightmare!!! Smiley Very Happy

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

@mermadelove:  ROTFLMAO!!!  If you gave one of your patients a fright while doing rounds, that would definitely have to go under the Beauty Disasters thread! LOL!!!

ROTFLMAO!!!! Smiley Very HappySmiley Very HappySmiley Very Happy

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

I'm kind of fail at following threads. I didn't even bookmark the original.........Oh well! I'm bookmarking and taking part in this now!!! I'm excited!  I don't have any purple gloss at all to do this week's challenge, so I'm sorry for that. But I have a few pictures of a bright eyeliner look I did last week without looking at this thread! I think it came out okay for someone who can't use eyeliner for the life of her. I did it with the teal shadow from MAC's Surf, Baby! Collection. I love it! I also did a look with it in the crease of a neutral look as well as on the lower lash line of another look. I think I'll post that pic too. 

 

 

I'm glad to finally find this thread! Thanks naturalbeauty21!

 

 


Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

@marinaanne147:  Love the bright eyeliner photos!  I'm glad you subscribed to this thread so you can join us on here.  I'm glad that naturalbeauty picked up the thread, too, after officegal was no longer able to keep up with it. 

Smiley Happy


I have still not taken any purple lip gloss photos this week, but I've been wearing it.  I'll really try to get a pic taken and posted today of my favorite purple gloss.
Smiley Happy

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

@tenngal & @naturalbeauty21: Thanks to you both! I'm lookin' forward to seeing some photos of other people's purple lipgloss! And then, since the week's almost up, people's eyeliner drawings! 

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

i havent had a chance to be creative with my makeup yet i just got some new makeup from the drugstore and i am trying out a few things to make sure i don't need to return them. i will complete this challenge either tomorrow or thursday and i will post a pic.Smiley Happy

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

i think all of us (yes me too) are forgetting about challenge of the week i keep forgetting challenge is what week and nobody is posting pictures im going to post mine tomorrow. im going to try and stay on top of this cuz it keeps falling down the line of posts.

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

Nice to see you guys are keeping up with this - and adding so much creativity to the challenges!

 

"-no eyeshadow just mascara (if you have oily lids use a mattifying powder on eyes) week of august 1st"

 

This is me on a regular basis anyway. Most days in the summer I'll skip mascara as well. It's way too hot and humid to bother with more than foundation/blush.

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

i have gotten so many compliments this week about my eyes. i made my mascara a little more noticeable this week. for some reason whenever i only put on mascara my eyes always kindof look like theyre sparkling. thats one of the things i love about my eyes.

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

this week im painting my fingertips hot pink. theyre going to look super cute! Smiley Happy
