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, clean 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

No such thing as overboard on the luxe! You look amazing and all those gorgeous products deserve a spotlight! So lovely, all of it! @AznAngelLiz 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Great look, @idanyd!! That lippie!! 💖

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thank you so much 😊@haleyvvvv 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Yes to more Gucci lipsticks @idanyd! Madge Red has been one I've had in and out of my cart. The Sephora store near me that carries the Gucci line doesn't stock this line of lippies so thank you, thank you! for posting your lippie. Adding it to my list!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

I am so glad I could help! @itsfi 🥰

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@idanyd  Beautiful combo of colours!! Love the whole look. 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thank you so much 😊!!! @ather 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Gorgeous in every way @idanyd 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thank you so much 😊🥰!!!’ @lmaster 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Oh, wow! Beautiful! I am obsess with that Gucci lipstick and packaging, but it seems to be gone, so I guess it was not meant to be! Lovely! @idanyd 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thank you so much 😊!!! @sister13  Such a shame it’s not available anymore 

uoma has some similar shades from their dark magic range 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@idanyd That green/gold look OMG how gorgeous!! And that lipstick is not as deep as I thought it would be. 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thank you so much 😊!!! @AznAngelLiz  I usually use my finger to apply my lipstick so it’s not too deep and won’t get smeared all over my face by wearing a face mask because since where I live face masks are mandatory 

What I do is apply a bit of lipstick to the center of my lips and spread it with mu fingers and you get a toned down shade 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@idanyd - I'm in awe of your green eye look!  Green eyeshadow does not work on me no matter the shade or finish.  You look great!  💖💖💖

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thank you so much 😊!!!! @Titian06 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Today I used the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Vanish Color Corrector Armani Beauty Power Fabric Concealer under my eyes. On my face, the UOMA foundation paired with the TOM FORD Shade and Illuminate Cream Face Palette, MUFE blush but it wasn’t showing enough so I added ROSE INC Blush Divine Clean Dewy Cream Blush Anemone with the Marc Jacobs Spotlight highlighter (RIP). On my eyes I used Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerize Cream Eyeshadow Amber Gold topped with Roen Disco Dust and Lancôme Idole Mascara. Eyebrows are Roen and UOMA. Lips are Charlotte Tilbury Tinted Love Lip & Cheek Stain - Look of Love Collection Bohemian Kiss (it’s the EXACT color of my lips, it’s uncanny) with Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre Lip Gloss - Pillow Talk Collection Pillow Talk .

Beautiful @makeitup305! I spy some tried and true faves here; as well as some that are being added to my list that I think may be new faves for me. ♥️ That’s great you’ve found a lip color that is the exact shade of your lips!! 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@itsfi it’s uncanny, really. I need to try it on my cheeks to see how it goes. That’s supposed to be the perfect blush right? We’ll see. It’s hard to compete with the Rose Inc blushes these days.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Lovely look, @makeitup305!! The shimmer from the Roen is gorgeous!! 💖
