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 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 couldn't remember what this week's theme was so I went with wearing loose mineral eyeshadows, which I love.  I was inspired by @idanyd and did my eyes before I went out (while wearing a mask) instead of after!  Here are my swatches of the two colors I used.  Unfortunately I could not get a good pic of the awesome sparkle of both colors.

 

Meow Cosmetics

Top:  Dirty Snow

Bottom:  Wild

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

So, it turns out, I have no idea which brands are clean and I don’t seem to have many, at least obvious to me. I wore these Kaja items, but I think I confused with Kosas. These Kaja are maybe vegan, but not natural or clean, lol.

 

But, I had almost never used this cream highlight that I thought was SO CUTE (with its useless little paint roller) and I actually really liked it! It gave a glowy sheen that lasted really well and managed to stay put and didn’t travel everywhere and just make me look greasy. 

 

The Kaja Don't Settle Concealer is a staple now and I’ve recommended to many people. Shades that match my cool/neutral tones, nice lightweight but great coverage that doesn’t look crazy light on zoom calls. Also love the Kaja Vacay Shine Glowy Lip Balm Oil 01 Beachy Nude . Not necessarily long lasting, but the packaging is super cute and makes me happy.
