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

another lovely look @divaknits - those shades look great on you

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Thanks @Kim888! I’m enjoying the eyeshadow challenge. It’ll help me get better at applications if I do it most days. 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@divaknits happy to hear the NARS is working for you! those colors are really popping now - i LOVE the mix of shades you used in this look. you can already tell how much your skills are improving. this is so awesome!! ETA - definitely not too much red!

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Thanks @cianni! I can’t help it. I wear so much red on my lips it just seems to gravitate towards my eyes. Smiley Very Happy I’d really like a pretty blue though. I found a L’Oréal at Ulta for $1 (Yes, you’re reading correctly!) on clearance. For now, though, I think I’ll try some colors from my Soft Glam palette next. 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

I've been slacking on the pictures but not the eyeshadows too much. Yesterday was CP Just My Luck, and HUDA BEAUTY - Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette - Emeraldthe day before. I love green shadow and I'm so happy it's been a trend. I've been trying to go through all my CP singles so I also used a few of those this week. I can't exactly remember what shades I tried, they were just kind of meh so I'll probably pass those on. 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@makeitup305 I’ve got the Huda Obsessions Emerald Palette too. I haven’t gotten around to using it yet, but I’m pretty sure I’ll like it. 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@divaknits i'm a sucker for green!

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Day 15 Smashbox L.A. Covershot Eye Pallet. From last week. I tried to do a lighter hand and blend it better so its not too harsh in the crease. I think I succeeded in that goal, but it took me half an hr Smiley Sad

I forgot to return an extra brush I bought at the 20% sale on sale so I re-purposed it for eyeshadow instead of contouring. I used the Sephora collection #80 contour brush to blend and January's weekly wow, Pro AllOver shadow brush #12 to pat it on. I really wanted it to look purple but the dark purple color has been the most disappointing in this pallet. It doesnt show the purple and I really packed it in on the edge of the lid. The overall theme seems to be more grey than purple. It still looks good and only one bad color out of all of them is pretty good. The 1st quad on the left is the last full on look for this pallet. Later, i will stick to Tarte pro remix for a while. What do you guys think? Should this be blended more so its a softer crease? What do you recommend to make it softer? IMG_20190312_154703.jpgIMG_20190312_154834.jpg20190308_131454.jpgsb15.jpg

@Buootiful Pretty!

 

Best,

Rebecca

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@Buootiful  Looks great, I like dark creases though. Sad that it doesn't look purple though.

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@Buootiful missed this face!!! Bummer about the purple pulling more grey, but the look is still nice and cohesive! I think the blending looks great, but if I want to soften something without totally buffing it out by overly blending, I’ll use a light tapping of the shade universal from my Morphe 35O2 (the top left corner shade if memory serves). I don’t know if that shade is available in other palettes or if you have it, but it’s the most bland non-color of all time and works perfectly to blend out lines without totally eliminating the other shade or manipulating the color

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Hello my lovely @cianni !! Thanks, I never thought to use  a neutral shade. Im gonna checkout that color/pallet and see if i have a similar shade. You are the best!

love this eye look @Buootiful 🤩

love this eye look @Buootiful 🤩

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Clearly the ByTerry palette is hard to use by itself, this is only the second time I've used it, and boy is it powdery. The colors on the outside are barely pigmented at all. I used both yellow shades and both pink shades...lol where did they go?? Lol used the cailyn glitter and mally eyeshadow stick on the entire lid, it's barely there after just an hour. I'll try them all again. Just terrible fall out from ByTerry.

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

It looks lovely @lmaster  You always do such a great job. I try to copy your looks sometimes but never have the success you do

@femman I really like the beginner tutorials she does, sh...

@femman I really like the beginner tutorials she does, she talks so softly also, relaxes me 😉

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Thanks so much @femman  trust me sweetness, practice practice and more practice, blending and blending. The size of your brushes impact the look tremendously as well. Have you ever watched the makeup chair on YouTube? She's very good at explaining slowly and has some beautiful looks.

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

I haven’t seen that. I will now. Thank you so much

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

What a disappointment from the By Terry! And I’ve heard so many good things about the brand too... not about the shadow though specifically 🤔 you look beautiful as always though 😍 sorry to hear your palette didn’t live up to expectations @lmaster 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@cianni I know, this was a let down for sure! I do have a couple other products from ByTerry that are great, but I will never buy another palette from them. I'll still try to use it a couple different ways before I put it in retirement 😂 I was thinking to try it wet, then try it strictly on the lid and see how it works out. Thanks doll 😘
