100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Inspired by @Samtian 's new year's resolution and the 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge started by @snoflakefaerie ! I thought it would be fun to do the same thing with eyeshadows!!

 

I have so many eyeshadow shades I never wear!  The 100 days of lip challenge has really encouraged me to branch out! So I'm challenging myself (and whoever else wants to join) to use more of them. I'm going to try to make my way through my whole collection using different shades each day! Share some eye looks or swatches - whatever's easier!

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

I have the Toasted Palette and never use it @Luvstravel. Iโ€™m so thankful for this thread, everyone is giving me lots of ideas for some ways to use my palettes (including yours๐Ÿ˜‰). 

 

How do you like using the cream shadow? I love it (not Tom Ford, but Julep) but find it creases. I donโ€™t use my base under it though๐Ÿค”

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@eshoe, this was the first time I've used a cream eyeshadow and didn't notice any creasing.  I used my urban decay primer then I always lightly powder then I applied my toasted palette, mostly a base layer of tan then topped it with the cream eyeshadow for a pop. It really was easy to apply, sorta like my Marc Jacobs seequins shadows I love so much.

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Hmmm ok I will have to try a base @Luvstravel. I reserve it for my lazy day makeup but one extra step isnโ€™t too bad๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@eshoe, I just did a layer of tan because I wanted it to seam together since I was just putting the creme eyeshadow to make a pop of color. When I use the Marc Jacobs seequins I don't put any eyeshadow down first since I smudge it in all over my lid.

so pretty @Luvstravel I need to use shades like that more...

Here are two looks from this week. Iโ€™ve been rushing out of the house almost every day so I havenโ€™t had a chance to do a lot of makeup. Here are the ones from yesterday and NYE using Natasha Denona Mini Star Eyeshadow Palette Mini Star Eyeshadow PalettePalette and PAT McGRATH LABS Mothership V Eyeshadow Palette - Bronze Seduction

thanks @lmaster you're so sweet!

RE: Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

That is so nice and beautiful!

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Wow! So pretty. And the lipstick is fabulous. Plus you did it in the car ๐Ÿค— @makeitup305

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

thanks @femman! the ND I did in the car and the PMG at home but I did both in kind of a rush haha good shadows are definitely worth the money in times of crisis ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@makeitup305 I know this is about the eye shadow but I must know what that red lipstick is please. 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@alexasteph Understandable, itโ€™s one of my favorite lipsticks. Itโ€™s NARS Audacious Lipstick Charlotte. Itโ€™s more of a reddish berry but super pretty.

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@makeitup305 Ooooh thatโ€™s already on my list so I think itโ€™s definitely gunna have to be a pick up! It looks great on you. 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@alexasteph thank you. It was my first really expensive lipstick, before that Iโ€™d only had drugstore or maybe MAC so it has a special place for me. Plus, the formula is great on this one. It doesnโ€™t bleed on me (though a lip pencil would probably have been a good idea since the tip Is worn down)). Highly recommend it!

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

I can almost see the duochrome @makeitup305, I have thought about picking up the Mini Star that green is beautiful! 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@eshoe that duochrome kills me. Whether with my finger or my ESUM brush (my favorite for that type of thick formula) it requires too much building up for the duochrome to really pop and even when I do it seems to fade (not the shadow, just the shift). I might try it over a glitter glue or a paint pot, this is just over a slightly powdered lid since I did it in the car. I like the palette but I donโ€™t think itโ€™s a must have. Iโ€™m jealous of all your greens in her big palette!

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Oooh I think over a glitter glue might yield some pretty results @makeitup305 ๐Ÿคฉ!

 

I love this challenge because there are so many pretty shades in that palette that I only use them when swatching๐Ÿ˜† 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@makeitup305 Both are so pretty!! I haven't tried ND, but the PMG shadows are great and I haven't touched on all the possibilities!! Love the Bronze Ambition!!๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@yankeefaithful that rose gold shade in the Bronze Seduction palette is one of the most gorgeous things ever.
