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!

@lmaster The 80s were my salad days, so I keep them close to my heart as well. 

RE: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Messing around pre-shower. Me to myself in my best Regina George: โ€œStop trying to make Fata Morgana happen! Itโ€™s not going to happen!โ€ Iโ€™ve really tried, yโ€™all. No base, base, base with setting powder. Cheap brush, expensive brush. Blending, packing. I upped the contrast in the second photo so you can see what Iโ€™m working with. Natasha, girl...I love you, but I cannot get this shade to work for me.

Lovely colors

Re: RE: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@tastelikewater The color makes your eyes look turquoise!

Re: RE: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@heavyhedon That's so kind of you to say, I just wish I could take credit! I dialed up the contrast setting in Photoshop Express just to highlight the consistency issues. 

Re: RE: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Even in the first pic, there's a blue-green quality... I find that many shadow combos change the tone of my eyes, which are normally sort of dull denim blue.

Re: RE: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Thats too bad that the shade is difficult to work with, @tastelikewater, because it's very pretty!!

Re: RE: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

This colour is beautiful on you @tastelikewater ๐Ÿคฉโค๏ธ, drats Iโ€™m surprised the blending was frustrating/ still a killer shade on you.  Can you blend out with a nude shade above the crease?  What palette is this from?

Re: RE: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@2manyperfumes It's from Safari; all of the negative YT reviews I've seen mentioned this shade as particularly difficult, and now I get it. The palette is beautiful overall, but this one just gives me trouble. 

 

I attempted to blend it with Stone (the light grey) above the crease, but maybe next time I'll try a nude. It might also be time for me to find a single navy shade, because I love the look of a deep blue smoky eye but every attempt with this shade hasn't worked out.  Thanks for the feedback as always ๐Ÿ˜

Re: RE: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

I wonder if it would work just as a outer corner shade @tastelikewater they are so beautiful in the pan too

Re: RE: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@lmaster Unfortunately I think that's how I'll have to use it. It's so darn powdery that attempts to blend it seem to whisk it away completely! It's a shade that I have to stamp down and dip into two or three times to achieve opacity. 

Re: RE: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@tastelikewater -- when a shade is powdery, I find that a good old-fashioned sponge-tip applicator sometimes works best; they grip and hold the powder in a way brushes can't.

 

 There's a similar shade in ABH Subculture that I love but am worrie will behave the same-- matte teals and purples are the worst for blending.

RE: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

I think there are some inconsistencies with a few shades based on batches. Mine actually works ok but I know a lot of people have issues. You are not alone.

Re: RE: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@Estelamusic That's the impression I've received as well from watching YouTube reviews. People who had trouble with the palette normally cite this shade as particularly troublesome. I'm so glad it's working for you though!

Re: RE: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Pretty nonetheless.
