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 30 (May 28-Jun 4): Beachy look (gold, Aqua, bronze, waterproof)

Week 31 (Jun 5-11): Mermaid or Unicorn inspired look

Week 32 (Jun 12-18): Gold, copper, bronze - metals

Week 33 (Jun 19-25): Festival looks (for my birthday week!)

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!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

I missed the updated list (oops!) so I went and did Singles Week this week and managed to actually take pictures of all my looks. My singles often go underused and this was a great way to remind myself why I love them. I could use another week like this tbh.

Monday: started of with a pop for Valentine's Day using CP Slave2Pink and topped it with  Kaima Cosmetics flakie. I wish I'd left my waterline simple but I liked it regardless.

Tuesday:  CP Fooling Around  with Stila Diamond Dust Glitter and Glow as liner

@makeitup305  Very pretty!  Sparkles do you well.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@Ispend2much6 thank you! I love shades with texture.

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@makeitup305, a week of gorgeous looks! The pink and reds look great on you! I can't wear bright pinks or reds on my lids; you wear them so beautifully! That pink look on Monday - whoa! It makes your eyes pop in the most pretty way! 💗

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

thanks @itsfi ! I was obsessed with hot pink / magenta when I was younger lol it was my go to color for clothes. I liked how the looks turned out, although there was quite a bit of staining 😛

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022

@makeitup305 Beautiful in pink!

Re: Makeup Challenge of the Week 2021/2022
