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

Some of the looks from this past week using PAT McGRATH LABS Mothership II Eyeshadow Palette – Sublime and I'm honestly not sure what the other two are. Probably some more PMG and ND. 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

All those shimmery looks are so pretty but THAT GREEN! Fantastic on you @makeitup305 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Wow I love the greens on you @makeitup305 !

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thanks @Sunnysmom !!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Oh ok!!! Green is definitely your color 😍😍😍 @makeitup305 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thanks @lmaster ! It's an underrepresented color imo!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Amazing looks, @makeitup305!! 💚 That green on the lid is gorgeous!!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thanks @haleyvvvv !!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

All are gorgeous look!!! @makeitup305  Love the face mask 😷 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thanks @idanyd ! I go all out even with a mask on 😉

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Love the green on you @makeitup305! 💚 That PMG palette is a beauty! 😍

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@itsfi I can't believe I waited this long to get it!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Ooh, I super love that green too, but these are all lovely! I think this might be the one MTHSHP I don’t have! @makeitup305 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@sister13 I can't believe how long it took me to pick it up considering how many other Motherships I have and how much I love green. I think the last pictures are using that one as well, with the other astral shades. I almost picked up Subversive as well but it was OOS when I finally decided to commit. Next Black Friday I guess!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Haha I’m always like “I guess it wasn’t meant to be” when things go OOS. @makeitup305 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@makeitup305  That green look is gorgeous 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

thanks @ather ! I just picked up that PMG palette in the sale. I'd always stopped myself before because I thought that green had a black base but it's more of a purple! I love it so much. I think I added a little bit from a green matte from ND's 28 Green Brown palette but it's mostly just that green all over.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@makeitup305 Wow! So, so  pretty! I think my favorite has to be the green look. That just makes your eyes really pop! 🙂

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

thanks so much @QueenMarceline ! Emerald is my birth stone and one of my favorite colors 💚
