A Year of Beauty- Photography Challenge

Hello! June's Challenge!! Drumroll please...Primer, Foundations, Concealers, Setting Powders, CC & BB products! -This is going to be tough!

 

I've been thinking for a while now about creating a challenge. And why not mix my two favorite things in life!? Beauty and photography. As some of you know I am a photographer on the side. But my creativity for things like this are horrible! Each month we will have a different theme, and your challenge is to incorporate the theme into a creative photo!

 

This challenge is going to be a little different, because you won't be creating looks! Starting in April, but I'd love to get your input and if this is something you would be interested in participating in. I thought about doing prizes and voting, we can still vote for the best if you guys want. But with all the legal jargon needed for prizes I decided I didn't want to mess with that. I might send  unicorn mail throughout to those who participate often though 😼 PS- They make for great filler posts on your social media too. And active participation in the forum, reviews, and gallery ( don't forget to post your challenge photos there too!) can possibly help your chances of getting gratis...like those two beautiful perfumes I got as a gratis below *wink wink*.  

 

The challenge and "rules"-

1. Flat lays and staged photos only. I'll post examples below. But no faces or people allowed in your photos. (Though you can include photographs).

 

2. All photos you take must be your own. 

 

3. Post as many images as you want, you have a whole month to get creative with each theme. Post one, post everyday, doesn't matter.

 

4. Let's talk gear and products! Tell us about your image. List the products and colors, talk to us about your concept and how it came to be, taken with your phone or DSLR? 

 

Here are some helpful reads- digital-photography-school dot com/flat-lay-photography/  and digital-photography-school dot com/tips-for-getting-started-with-still-life-photography/

 

Here are some of my example images I've taken in the past-

Saie Glowy Super Gel Lightweight Dewy Highlighter   I thought it will count because I don’t use it as highlighter but more as a glowy primer that I sometimes apply all over the face before foundation but mostly mix it in the foundation for a dewy finish.

 This one was hard!  I do like how it turned out though and how think pink from the beauty blender was reflected on the LYS foundation.

Re: A Year of Beauty- Photography Challenge

@faeriegirl ooh I also love that pink reflection! Definitely a hard one, and you did great!

Re: A Year of Beauty- Photography Challenge

@faeriegirl, the pink LYS from the beautyblender is very cool! 🤩 When I first saw this photo, I wondered if LYS had released a LE / special packaging for its foundation. 

Re: A Year of Beauty- Photography Challenge

It is a beautiful photo @faeriegirl , sponges colours are lovely and your choice of foundations is amazing.

Re: A Year of Beauty- Photography Challenge

It looks spectacular @faeriegirl I love it! You did a great job! And yes, that pink reflection on the Lys foundation is just perfect! 😍

Re: A Year of Beauty- Photography Challenge

Last month got ahead of me and I didn’t share any eyeshadow photos so I am jumping in early this month to makeup for that. 
I am not big on foundations but adding primers and lighter coverage products, I think I can drop few entries.

 

Here is the first one. Macrene Actives Tinted moisturizer, consider other products a prop. Photo is taken in natural light with IPhone 12 Pro Max.

@fatimamummy, this is one of those shots where I think “This is beautiful. Oh, I’d like that … and that … I just want everything.” 😍 Your placement, lighting, angles and feel of your shots are exquisite. Always. ♥️
