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!

thanks @makeitup305 that's so pretty!

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@Kim888 I’ve been meaning to pick up Salted Caramel too. Definitely check those out next time you’re in store, they’re so pretty. I’m not a huge fan of the scent even if I love coffee but it fades with a bit of wear.

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@makeitup305 Salted Caramel is so pretty! You won't regret it. I also picked up French Press; I used to be intimidated by browns, but this one builds so well that you can go anywhere from sheer to opaque. I agree that the smell and taste are a bit strange, not quite the "coffee" I imagined, but they do fade. 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@tastelikewater the taste is almost "burnt" like old coffee grounds. As for the other colors, I've been hoping they do a weekly wow or something similar for them. I think Flat White would be a nice one to lighten up lipsticks too

 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

If they were part of a Weekly Wow, I'd pick up at least one more color! Dirty Chai is gorgeous, and I'm intrigued by Flat White. 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

This is sooo pretty. You are very talented. Sorry but what do you mean by duochrome effect? I still have a lot to learn. Love the look. @makeitup305 💛

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@femman Thank you! A duochrome shade is one that shifts from one color to another- in this case, even though I only have one shade all over the lid, it looks green in the middle but a purple/brown on the outer part. 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Thanks. @makeitup305 That is really cool 

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@femman I love duochromes. They’re a lot of fun.

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

Love it 😍@makeitup305 & always fun to play with the precious before showers!

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@sonnydee definitely! It’s the best time to practice new techinques or try color combinations.

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

This is just so gorgeous @makeitup305. I’m in love 😍

@blackkitty2014 Thank you!

I'm going to cheat a little. Hope y'all dont mind. 😉 I'm counting palettes I use & since I used 2...this is Day 8/9. The Lila palette I used the light one as my inner corner. The dark my lid. KVD lightest I used as my brow bone. the 'base' largest pan, I used as my base & in my crease. the matte darkest KVD went into my outer corner. I learned a valuable lesson today. This morning, I used my HG-might-buy-a-second-set CT eye brushes. But I almost *hated* the look but it was too late to change it so I fixed it the best I could & went off to church. tonight before I washed it all off I used a fluffier, longer brush & the dark shade actually blended! (CT it would not blend at all, I even used both palettes KVD to see if my messed up one changed the formula. Nope just wouldn't blend.) So 1. you can never have enough eye brushes! 😁2. dont be afraid to experiment with those different brush types before you call it quits on a shade!😃

I love the Lila palette @sonnydee

I love the Lila palette @sonnydee

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

How do you keep your ND palette so clean @sonnydee??? So much of the glitter from the shadows in mine has travelled outside of the pans and it just looks messy🤨

@eshoe 🤗 Probably for a couple of reasons:1. I got OCD,...

@eshoe 🤗 Probably for a couple of reasons:1. I got OCD, I dont let any fallout linger. I blow it away immediately. 2. I've used this palette 3 times now. (yea I know shameful😯) and the last reason.3. I've been using my fingers alot with this palette. which surprised me. But I couldn't get the color to pop & I got impatient. (shimmers, I haven't used the mattes yet. but with pat m. it was brush for mattes, fingers for shimmer/glitter. ) or maybe I just need to experiment with my brushes. 😋

Re: @eshoe 🤗 Probably for a couple of reasons:1. I got OCD,...

Ahhhh, thank you @sonnydee. I think I am going to try to clean mine somehow and get it to look more like yours😊 No shame in cleanliness!

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@sonnydee so true - can never have enough eye brushes!

Re: 100 Shades of Eyeshadow Challenge

@sonnydee agree on the "never enough eye brushes"! Sometimes the cut, type or shape of a brush can make all the difference in the world.
