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 so much 😊!!! @Titian06 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Looking blurry and tired but I'm wearing an older PMG 6-pan palette (the first one that came out, in the green box, that I think I need to declutter) with some shades from PAT McGRATH LABS Mothership VI Eyeshadow Palette - Midnight Sun for sparkle. I'm also wearing the PMG Golden Nectar highlighter. I originally wasn't a big fan of this and when I first apply it, it's very meh but it melts into the skin over time and ends up looking quite pretty.

You look amazing!! @makeitup305 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@makeitup305  Great look!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thanks @ather !

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Very pretty! I like the smoky gold! @makeitup305 I think this is one of two Motherships I don’t have. 💕💕

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@sister13 Thank you! It was not my favorite mothership when I first bought it and honestly that green was why I got it. I do still love it though I wish the purple was more impactful. The other topper shades are A+ though and the mattes are too (though mine were a bit thinner which I think was just a fluke for mine in particular). I reach for it a decent amount since it’s one of the more “wearable” and neutral palettes IMO.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

I agree, super pretty @makeitup305 

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Thank you @heavyhedon 🙂

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

Your look is gorgeous! @makeitup305
