Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

[UPDATED WITH NEW CHALLENGES ~ MAY & JUNE] 💗💗💗  So, I could definitely use some makeup inspiration these days and maybe you could too. Several years ago, we used to have some weekly makeup challenge threads, so I’m bringing one back. It’s a great way to spark some creativity and maybe most importantly, a great way to shop your stash!

 

I started with a list of some challenges below, but also happy to edit/rearrange/consider other ideas along the way. I hope you will join me!  Feel free to post as many or as few times you’d like each week with photos of your looks. If you don’t like to post your face, feel free to do a flatlay of the products you used to do your look. Also, if you get behind or ahead, feel free to post pics whenever you have time.

 

Can’t wait to see all your looks! Have fun!

 

Updated the challenge (AGAIN) for the next few months! 

Week 26 (May 1-7): Spring flower inspired (cherry blossoms, daffodils, lilacs, etc)

Week 27 (May 8-14): Monochromatic look - use seasonally fun shades like peach, coral, nudes or pastels! @heavyhedon

Thank you very much, @tsavorite, that means a lot to me! 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@eshoe  Did you draw that eye???  Your talents are never-ending!  I love that palette.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@Ispend2much6 awww thank you, I try. I used to do that a lot as a teen and I thought it would be fun to try again. I haven’t ventured out to try too many other Viseart but now I see some on sale again. The Viseart Eyeshadow Palette 03 Bridal Satin looks like it might be a good option!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@eshoe   You drew that?   I was going to ask if you used an ap and which one it was!   It looks so professional!  

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@heartsmyface thank you for the compliment 🙂 Just don’t zoom in, you will see all of my little messes, ha!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Oh such lovely fall colors, I love it!! Those Hourglass scattered light shadows are really pretty! @eshoe ❤️❤️

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thank you, @sister13! I haven’t found anything (yet) in the same shade that has quite the glittery shimmer and lasts like Ray.  

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Fall colours ☺️  I used the Too Faced Cinnamon Swirl palette.  It goes really well with my hair right now.  Nars dual intensity blush in Panic (the orange shade) and jill Stuart tinted lip shimmer in 01
