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 (Jan. 24-31) Let’s show our natural or eco-friendly brands some love! 

Week 13: Budget friendly brands

Week 14: Minis


Please feel free to suggest some other challenge ideas in the thread and we’ll add to the coming weeks!! 💕💗💕💗💕

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Missed out on posting this week but definitely got to wear some pretty glowy stuff like the HUDA BEAUTY Rose Quartz Eyeshadow Palette and the Vanity Makeup Cosmetics Signature palette. I tried to do matte makeup but I just feel incomplete without sparkle and glitter. Here’s my last look of the week using some of my new arrivals from BF sales.

I’m wearing the Roen 52 palette on the eyes with Roen Disco Dust and MAKE UP FOR EVER Star Lit Powder in #13 on the inner corner. Cream contour and bronzer are from Salt New York , blush is ROSE INC Blush Divine Clean Dewy Cream Blush Dahlia and highlight is Westman Atelier Lit Up Highlight Stick Nectar . Lips are Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner Pillow Talk with LAWLESS Forget The Filler Lip Plumper Line Smoothing Gloss Daisy Pink and some Vieve Lip Dew for extra sparkle. Glowy décolletage is curtesy of Biossance 100% Sugarcane Squalane Oil

You look radiant @makeitup305! If sparkle and glitter complete you, then sparkle and glitter it is!! Looks beautiful on you! That Rose Inc. blush looks great!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Love the overall look, @makeitup305, especially your eyes!  💖💖💖

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@Titian06 @heavyhedon I really liked the way they turned out considering it was only 1-2 shades but it didn’t last very well. The sparkle was all there a couple of hours later but the color was gone. Previously I’d only used the Roen over a powder, more as a topper, so I hadn’t realized how intensely it fades. I’d heard that complaint before, though. I might try it over a glitter glue maybe and see how it does but I don’t mind having just toppers , it’s just something to keep in mind. Disco Dust is not worth it in my opinion, kind of a pain to use and won’t disperse the glitter evenly.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@makeitup305 -- good to know. I love cream shadows but I like them to be easy to deal with. I heard the Roen creases a lot but can be patted back into place, if that makes sense. Never tried them myself (yet), but Hannah Louise Poston on YT uses them and has done some serious reviews on the whole lot. 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@heavyhedon I need to check her out. I tried putting it over a glitter glue today and I could tell it was going to crease anyway so I went over it with TOM FORD Eye Color Quad Eyeshadow Palette 05 Silvered Topaz and then on top again with the Roen and as I’m typing it still looks pretty decent, hough it still has some slight fading and creasing. I probably will mostly use them as topper shades but I still want to try them for a full day on their own just to get an idea. I haven’t tried that many cream shadows from different brands but I’ve lost track of how many Colourpop shadows I’ve owned over the years. I recently picked up a Victoria Beckham and a Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerize Cream Eyeshadow but I haven’t given them a good try yet. 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@makeitup305 - That's to bad the color didn't hold up!  Toppers definitely have their place.  When I wore TOM FORD Eye Color Quad Eyeshadow Palette Metallic Denim , I found the lightest shade to be more of a topper than a shade.  Now I just have to remember to give it a try as such! 😄

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Gorgeously glowing, @makeitup305 , and loving that eye color combo!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Love the glow @makeitup305 ! 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thanks @Sunnysmom !

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@makeitup305 I know what you mean about feeling incomplete without a little sparkle!  Every time I try to do a matte look I end up caving in and finding some way to sneak in some shine, lol.  Beautiful look 😊.
