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

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.

Looks great @sister13 and that little roller and highlighter is just too cute! 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

I'm late with all of these great weekly ideas, but here's a version of Snow Queen-- my idea was to make it look like her lips were beginning to freeze over. Not sure it comes across as well as I'd want in pics, but I was okay with it. I went with touches of deep green and soft blue instead of all frost for this one.

I love your glow @heavyhedon !

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

I love your take on the ice queen. Definitely super icy lips! ❄️❄️❄️ @heavyhedon 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Girl! I love this!!!! Your lips look icy cool!!! @heavyhedon 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

TY @idanyd , glad it comes across that way!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

I like this look!! @heavyhedon 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thank you @lmaster , it was fun to do.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@heavyhedon, your idea for the ice queen look was beautifully executed - the lip effect you created is lovely and I like touches of green and blue. Nice job! By the way, nice work with caring for your skin - it looks great! 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@itsfi TY! I really tried to get in character. And started doing a bit of proper self-care. 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@heavyhedon Beautiful!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@Mellmars1185 == thank you! I love doing cool toned looks.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@heavyhedon - I think it comes across great! 👑  It's the first thing I noticed before reading your description.  Your whole look is wonderful! 🥰

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Aw, thanks @Titian06 -- it's hard to tell for me, I was so invested!!!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

A8DC2277-347D-40E4-B4D9-807AA6423C1F.jpegThis is las weeks challenge. I’ve been using the face palette all week (even if you can’t see it because of the face mask 😅) and the Sephora palette as a push liner

 

this is the only look I manage to take a pic of because this week and last week have been intense and not very nice 

here in the eyes I’m using hindash beautopsy palette and bperfect x Stacie Marie liquid shadow in venom along with the palettes in the pics 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

You make it look so easy @idanyd ! Perfect as always. 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Really pretty!! @idanyd 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thank you so much 😊!!! @lmaster 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Your eye look is golden @idanyd! 😍 And pretty as ever. I've eyed that Physicians Formula palette and have had it in and out of my cart a couple of times. All the powders look like you could get some good use out of them. Did you use a few of the products or just stick with one last week?
