Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Week 3: Nov. 20-26 - Fall-inspired look!  [UPDATED WITH NEW NOV AND DEC CHALLENGES!!] 💗💗💗 

 

We are celebrating the One Year Anniversary of this thread!! Although, somehow the challenge ended up with 61 weeks in a year, I’m not sure how that happened, lol.

 

Anyway, I figure in year two, we’ll do some repeats and some new challenges. I also plan to add in some bonus hair challenges, maybe once a month.

 

Week 1: Nov. 6-12 - Full Moon looks

Week 2: Nov. 13-19 - 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 3: Nov. 20-26 - Fall-inspired look (I’m thinking golds, oranges, browns, wines, plums and greys, but do whatever makes you feel most like fall!)

Week 4: Nov. 27- Dec. 3 - Brand of the week (or day). Choose a brand for each look or for the whole week.

Week 5: Dec. 4-Dec.11 - Neutrals

Week 6: Dec. 12-Dec. 18 - Blue/White/Silver for Hanukkah Colors

Week 7: Dec. 19-25 - Reds and/or Greens for Christmas colors

Week 8: Dec. 26-Jan. 2 - Silver and Gold/Glitter for New Year’s

 

———-

 

So, I could definitely (still) 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!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Went for an earthy fall look today! Happy fall and happy Friday everyone! This includes some Natasha Denona mini 5 pan combo, a red-brown MAC lip liner (thought it was more brown) and a mini TOM FORD Lip Color Lipstick 04 Indian Rose , which I had forgotten was so beautiful.
