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!

Hi there! I am back from vacation and just getting a chance to post on here! This is my newness post!

I forgot how much I actually like to take time and perfect my makeup! Here, I used a classic blender to get my coverage. I am almost out of clean glowing skin from SC! It’s so easy to layer with fuller coverage concealers over top- it never gets “cakey” and it truly my go. Eyes are from Mother Pat! This Palette is limited edition and so fun to play with!

Oh, wow, @ElizaPRO ! Super stunning look that highlights your lovely features. Really beautiful! 💕💗💕

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

You are a force girl!! @ElizaPRO ❤️ beautiful

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Love the look, @ElizaPRO those intense eyes! I'm hoping I can sort of dupe the look with some cranberry shades that are not PMG, LOL. Good to know about the SC foundation, I haven't tried it yet, I've been mostly using a trial size of Purlisse BB Cream lately instead of my usual Bareminerals Rescue Tint. But I'd like to try the SC.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Wow!!! Absolutely stunning 🤩 ! @ElizaPRO 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@idanyd  Thank you so much!!💟

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Can I have your makeup AND your hair, @ElizaPRO?  That look is gorgeous.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

OMG!! Thank you! I was hoping my hair would turn out a bit more different but, I'm ok with it:)

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

You look super stunning @ElizaPRO I love the purple smokey look

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

I did a demi-cut crease today. I used the lightest matte shade from the melted rust palette and then everything else was the ND biba palette, which I bought from ND direct the day before thanksgiving, bundled with the triochrome palette for $145, which I think is an amazing deal. I am so happy I waited for both of these palettes and was able to bundle them together for that great price!  

seriously, the only think I like more than makeup is getting a great deal on makeup.  😂😂😂

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

So pretty @itscarin! I still don’t have Biba, bu I really love Triochrome. I was tempted by Biba + Circo Loco on Black Friday, but resisted since I got other things. @itscarin 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@itscarin -- same, I take an unholy glee in purchasing a hot palette at an insane discount. Love this look with the pretty shades and flicky perfect wing and the lovely lip color!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@itscarin, ND Biba is such a great palette; you scored an amazing deal!! 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Wow!!! Such a great deal!! @itscarin
