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

@sister13  Thank you! Not gonna lie, I think my facial skin isn't half bad for being 57, but it's mostly due to Mom and my late maternal Grandma having great skin.

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 24-Hour Eyeshadow Primer 0.35 oz/ 11 g . 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.
