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 

Week 28 (May 15-21): Soft Smoky eye (heck, or go for a bold, smoky eye!)

Week 29 (May 22-28): Bold lip or eye

Week 30 (May 28-Jun 4): Beachy look (gold, Aqua, bronze, waterproof)

Week 31 (Jun 5-11): Mermaid or Unicorn inspired look

Week 33 (Jun 19-25): Festival looks (for my birthday week!)

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!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

I used the PAT McGRATH LABS Bridgerton MTHRSHP: Diamond of the First Water Eyeshadow Palette a couple of times this week but forgot to take pictures of all of them. I really like the pink ones as blushes, almost wish that she'd gone with those as full size.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Update no one was waiting for: my PMG Bridgerton arrives tomorrow, though I am tempering my expectations because I feel it’s always getting delayed an additional day. @makeitup305 💕💗💕 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@makeitup305, great idea to use the pinks as blushes. Love the soft and natural look you've created on your lips and face and the pop with the sparkly eye shadow. the light really captures it nicely!
