Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

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.

 

I figured I’d kick us off with some fall looks, can’t wait to see them all! Have fun!

 

Week 1 (Nov. 7-13): Fall-inspired look (I’m thinking golds, oranges, browns, wines, plums and greys, but do whatever makes you feel like fall!)

Week 2 (Nov. 14-20): Black owned brands (Show them some love! https://www.sephora.com/beauty/black-owned-beauty-brands)

Week 3 (Nov. 21-27): Newness! Show off any new items you picked up during the sale (or anything new-ish that needs some love). Or, if you are on a low buy, just shop your stash! Alternate suggestions try something in a new way, i.e. use shades from a palette that you never use, or in a new combo.

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! 

Week 6 (Dec 12-18): Limited Editions (old or new, pull out your limited edition or discontinued items and actually use them!) 

Week 7: (Dec. 19-25) Snow Queen/King

Week 8: (Dec. 26-Jan. 1) Silver and (or) Gold

Week 9: (Jan. 2-Jan. 😎 Glitter/sparkle/glam

Week 10: (Jan. 9-Jan. 15) Throwback/forgotten favorites

Week 11: (Jan. 16-Jan. 23) Palette of the week - Choose an eye (and/or other palette to create different looks during the week

Week 12: Natural brands

Week 13: Budget friendly brands

Week 14: Minis


Please feel free to suggest some other challenge ideas in the thread!

@Sunnysmom  Thanks!  Unfortunately it's going back; it makes my eyes itch! My CT Eyes to Mesmerize did today too. 😞

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Oh no @Ispend2much6 , I hate that. It’s hit or miss for me it seems. Do you think it’s maybe allergy related and not all the time or pretty much always 😕. It’s so tricky. 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@Sunnysmom. It's hard to say. I will try again though!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@Ispend2much6 - This quad looks great on you!  Thanks for posting!  💖💖💖

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@Titian06. You are too sweet!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Such a beautiful shade!!!! @Ispend2much6 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@idanyd. Thank you so much!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@Ispend2much6 @Nice find at Saks!  I feel you on the internet privacy thing.  You never know when something is going to come back to bite you in the butt!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@itscarin  As is true in much of life... lol  Kind of wish something would bite me in the butt and take a few inches off, but that's another story for another time.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@Ispend2much6 thanks for posting! The quad looks lovely on you!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@makeitup305  Thank you!!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Wearing Vanity Cosmetics on the eyes tagging @Guessgal @AznAngelLiz @Sunnysmom @itsfi so you can see it in action. The sparkle reminds me of what you get from the celestial shades in TF, CT, and PMG but it applies more evenly instead of like a topper if that makes sense. The mattes are very pigmented but blendable, you only need a tap. 10/10 would recommend this palette if you want a neutral/warm day to night

glam palette. My one critique would be maybe it could’ve used a different shade other than the second less sparkly copper but that’s it.

Bonus pictures from when I wore it the other day topped with Roen 75 (which I think caused the creasing, otherwise I haven’t really experienced creasing or fallout)E2CBFF7E-B4B8-486F-BA64-3E8925EA5419.jpeg

 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@makeitup305, you are selling that Vanity Cosmetics palette! Love the shimmery eye look - very pretty! And your highlighter! Glowy goodness!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@itsfi they should pay me at this point, I've posted about it so much. I just replied to @eshoe that she should look into it for glittery goodness.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

And you are selling me on too, @makeitup305 😉

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@eshoe 😎 I just imagine what a rose or taupe one would look like and drool. Or maybe a cool toned with some grays and blues? Or a gold and green, with some sparkly olives? I need all of them. 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Sparkly olives, yes please @makeitup305 🤩🙌🏼

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

So glowy and gorgeous! It says a lot that you can take t hat pic in the bright sun and still look so wonderful! I always try but have to discard those, haha! @makeitup305 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thanks so much @sister13 ! I think the shimmer called for it!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

The most beautiful shimmer!! Love love love it!! @makeitup305 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thanks so much @lmaster !
