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!

You look great, @idanyd !  💖💖💖  After all the shimmery, you look so casual in all matte!  😄

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thank you so much 😊!!! @Titian06 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

I love a matte cheek too, @idanyd . And that lippy-- so pretty.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Hi, all!  I know you will be shocked and amazed, but I actually did my eyes this morning...Yep, it's true.  No pic though.  First I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance Eyeshadow Primer . Then I used colors from my new, but unused, Natasha Denona Biba All Neutral Eyeshadow Palette Full Size Biba Neutral Eyeshadow Palette :  the light gray and dark gray and lined my upper lid with the black.  I think the black had a bit of shimmer, but I never line my eyes, so don't judge me 😄  It looked pretty decent for not having used eye makeup in over a year and a half.  You guys are inspiring me!  💖💖💖

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Yaaaay to breaking out the Biba palette @Titian06! I'm not great at applying eyeshadow as liner. Curious to know what brush you used to apply the black shadow from the Biba palette for your liner.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@itsfi - I use a bent eyeliner brush I bought at Target many years ago.  It's probably Sonja Kashuk.  😁  The bristles are soft and with the bend, it makes it easier to apply to my crepey eyelids.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thank you @Titian06

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

oh, that’s great @Titian06 ! I’m glad you are feeling inspired! This palette is so pretty,I was super tempted to get it over Black Friday but prioritized other items. 😍😍😍

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@sister13 - I used my points to buy a $100 rewards certificate; otherwise, I would never have purchased such an expensive palette! 🤑

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Lovely palette to use @Titian06 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Would love to have seen the eye look cause i am sure it was wonderful! 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Woohoo, @Titian06 , breaking out the Biba! Good for you, and I hope you enjoyed it. It's a luscious palette.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

That’s amazing!! @Titian06 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thanks, @idanyd !  You are too kind!  😊

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Go @Titian06 ! I’m sure it looked great 😉 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@makeitup305 @sister13 @Ispend2much6 - Thank you!  🥰

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Yay, nice job, what a pretty palette, which I have thus far resisted. I'm glad you felt a little bit inspired! @Titian06 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@Titian06. That's exciting! I remember when I started wearing makeup after a hiatus. It's been full steam ahead since!
