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 

Week 28 (May 15-21): Soft Smoky eye (heck, or go for a bold, smoky eye!)

Week 29 (May 22-28): Bold lip or eye

Week 30 (May 28-Jun 4): Beachy look (gold, Aqua, bronze, waterproof)

Week 4 (Nov. 28-Dec. 4): Go all-glowy or go all-matte!

Week 5 (Dec. 5-11): Luxe brands or Luxe items. If it feels luxe to you or makes you feel fancy, post it!

Gorgeous gorgeous look!!! @sister13 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thank you!! @idanyd 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Lovely as always @sister13! you look so beachy and fresh.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thanks! I probably shouldn’t have used 3 néw hair products at once so I could see how I like each one, but oh well. I do feel this combo kind of stretched out my normal waves, but overall, I still liked it. I’ve been struggling with my hair a bit lately, seems like I’m losing a lot more of it these days, but I’m trying not to let it stress me out worse! @makeitup305 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@sister13 I like the beachy waves! It’s a good look on you! Losing hair is so stressful and stress just makes you lose more so it’s a catch-22. It looks great from here if that helps 😉

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thank you so much 😊!! @makeitup305  It is and quality is pretty good! 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Sadly I haven’t been able to participate in the challenge much this week due to feeling under the weather and then the holiday but I finally had a chance to play today. I used the Live Tinted Hueglow as a primer, the HUDA BEAUTY Rose Quartz Eyeshadow Palette , the LAWLESS Mini Forget The Filler Lip Plumper Trio (the pink one) paired with a VERY old jordana lipliner that I should probably throw away, and the Westman Atelier Mini Petite Sticks Clean Glow Trio II (all the shades). This look is definitely another “new”for me as these eyeshadows aren’t shades that I typically gravitate to or use this way but I really like how the look turned out.

This was a super quick look I did earlier this week with Natasha Denona Glam Face & Eye Palette Light and HUDA BEAUTY Rose Quartz Eyeshadow Palette
