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

Yesterday I pulled out the Huda obsessions palette in emerald.  I have 3 of these little ones and they’ve all been consistent and good.  The mattes are creamy, shimmers are smooth and don’t crease up and the chunkier glitters go on best with either your fingertips or a packing brush.  I prime my lids with a tacky eyelid primer so that the shadow stays put without fallout.  I like the NYX eyelid primer in the shimmer formula.  It’s more reflective than a flat primer and stays tacky.  Not expensive and so far works better for me than other primers.  I also used the Fenty Diamond bomb highlighter and some Sephora and Urban Decay liners.  I always use a gentle exfoliating powder in the mornings like the Tatcha Rice Polish before I moisturize then from primer to foundation I spray - apply a high moisturizing water retaining gel-spray and a new tip I learned from a young MUA is to finely highlight in between the layers to get a nice reflective glow.  I use the lightest concealer possible as close to white because my skin is very translucent and I have hyperpigmentation just under my eyes.  Common due to my Mediterranean heritage.  I have both olive and red undertones.  Hooded almond shape eyes are a challenge and one is shaped different from the other lol.  You can really see it when I’m tired.  One eye drops grrrr.

You are beautiful and your makeup always looks flawless

Re: RE: Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Thank you @KehDee that is very kind of you.  We have good and bad camera makeup days lol.  

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

I like this look @2manyperfumes ! What do you think of the corail Huda palette? Do you have any looks to post with it? I wanted to try it, but I don't know if it would be nice with the color of my eyes (kind of blue/green) and it's so outside my comfort zone! 😁 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Thank you @MlleJuju .  I have used it.  Very nice and bright but there is some fallout with this one as well as the electric one so use an eye primer and fix plus on your brush.  If you use a neutral matte shadow as you base like a taupe you should be able to use this palette.  Huda wears it when she’s wearing her blue contact lenses and it look great.  

 

I have used the palette but I don’t have a photo.  I should do another look with it lol.  I’ve been diving into many indie brands lately.  

 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Thanks for the infos @2manyperfumes . I think I'm going to try it. I always use a primer, so it should be okay. But I got to find another one. I bought the urban decay because a lot of people had really good comments about it, but it doesn't fully work for me, alas...

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

You’re welcome @MlleJuju I know I bought the new smashbox foundation and it was horrible on me.  I need to try it on my skin (sample) on my arm won’t work my fave is completely a different texture and colour and I hate when the sales person tells me to swatch on the inside of my arm.  Never works.  

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

You're right @2manyperfumes : I should try some products before I buy them... But I was too enthousiast and was buying on the web site. Click click click... So easy! 😁

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

lol I buy a lot on line too @MlleJuju  click click haaaa 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Ohhhh this is just so lovely ♥️ @2manyperfumes 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Thank you @femman 😊

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Your skin is flawless. Would you please tell me which concealer and foundation you use, brands and shade. Thank you!

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Thank you so much @Khfarmc I switch them up seasonally because my skin changes from winter to summer.  I’m super pale so I usually use the lightest shades in most brands.  The brands I like using over and over from high end to drugstore that work well on my skin are Tatcha Silk canvas primer, No 7 airbrush primer, NYX Cosmetics both their hydra primer, their BB cream (pale), honey Dewy primer, IT Cosmetics illuminating CC cream with 50 SPF.  No 7 moisturing foundation in Calico.  Maybelline eraser foundation-concealer pale ivory.  NYX Cosmetics can’t stop won’t work concealers in palest shades (alabaster and pale ivory).  First aid Hello Fab avocado concealer in palest shade.  Hourglass veil primer powder and NYX can’t stop won’t work setting powder.  Tatcha Dewy mist, Dr. gross collagen setting spray, NYX Dewy setting spray.  This is pretty much what Products work for me.  

I love Huda! great choice @2manyperfumes

Re: I love Huda! great choice @2manyperfumes

Thank you @lmaster  I like the brand too.  Her palettes have a lot of colours ❤️

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

I picked up the Fenty holiday highlighter palette back in November/December when it first launched and like all Fenty highlighters it’s versatile.  I use it for eyes, face and lips as well.  The darker shades are amazing as shadow and lip toppers to add some pop.

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

So pretty 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Sooo beautiful @2manyperfumes  you do such an amazing job. How do you use the highlighter on your lips? It is such a pretty look 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Thank you @femman I do use the highlighter on my lips and below my eyebrows with a fan brush to give pops of light.  As we age we get more shadows so instead of contouring I highlight and use blurring primers and powders to help with fine lines, texture and pores.  Lots of hyaluronic gels and sprays to set that way it won’t cake or slide into wrinkles and creases.   

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Thanks so much. I really appreciate it. @2manyperfumes
