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

Thank you very much! @makeitup305

@sister13 Such a gorgeous light look. Love it. 😍You look fan-flippin'-tastic.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Awww, haha, thanks! @QueenMarceline 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

You're selling that Huda palette @sister13 !  I've had it in and out of my cart a few times and you just made me put it back in lol

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Haha, I was not overly impressed by seeing swatches online, and then I went in store and basically had to have this palette, but then at home I haven’t had much chance to use it. It is solidly pretty, though surely I have these shades in other palettes. @missjeanie 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@missjeanie if you're a fan of pink shadow it's a great one! the taupes and purples are great, too.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@makeitup305 Pinks, taupes, and super pale beiges... that's my bread and butter.  I'm not a bright or complicated shadow girl, I'm a 'one or two and done quick' type of style. It's back in my cart now lol

Beautiful! You are very talented! @idanyd 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thank you so much 😊!! @Mellmars1185 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Oh wow! I keep,seeing these everywhere and may need them! However, I am curious if you know whether these are like the Stila metal/foils? I had to throw mine away after they dried up, but they were gorgeous. But, I’ve been a bit more hesitant with creams or things that may dry up since then. But this is stunning! 💕💕 @idanyd 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thank you so much 😊🥰!! @sister13  I have some stilla cream shadows and can tell you this fools are a bit more “wet” in consistency to those ones. This one’s don’t dry as fast as I would like (like the Natasha Denona liquid chrome shadows) but it is beautiful and dries down completely;  I also am not too much into liquid eyeshadow because it creases on me a lot or doesn’t stick well to the eye. I got this because it’s so pretty and sparkly I just had to. This is more of a place it and leave it there not much of a blending product 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@idanyd - Your eyes look like a sunset! 🧡🧡🧡 Very pretty!
