mbb january instagram makeup challenge

Let’s do this!

Rise and shine, morning glory! 🙂 It’s Caturday. I hope you slept well. Do you remember last month when we talked about doing an Instagram makeup challenge/not really a challenge/just for fun thing?

Well, get your brushes ready! I hope you’ll join me, because there are still three weeks left in January, so let’s do this. Why wait, right? I’ll be posting a new challenge look each week for the rest of the month, and I’ll share it here on the blog and Instagram using #mbbinstachallenge so you can find it. If you do your own version of the look on your own blog and social media, share a link to it in the comments here, or use #mbbinstachallenge on Instagram so I can find it.

Look 1 (Week of Jan. 9-15) – A look with a single bold, colorful element

The first week’s look is something with a bold, colorful element on super clean skin.

And if you’re down for a bonus, the last look for the last two days of the month is something with purple/purple-ish blush and a killer highlight.

That blush tho!!!

To participate

  1. Any day during each week, do your own interpreation of that week’s look, and take a picture of it with your phone or other camera.
  2. Post the pic on Instagram! — and be sure to include #mbbinstamakeupchallenge, and you can also tag me at @karenmbb. That way we can search and find each other!
  3. And if you aren’t on Instagram, leave a comment on this post and a link to your makeup picture.

DISCLAIMER: this is not a judgy, serious, instense or stressful competition. This is strictly for fun and to get out of our makeup comfort zones a little, which is why I threw a couple of wackier looks into the mix. For me, it’s easy to always fall back on the same looks ALL THE TIME, so this is just an excuse to have fun and try new things.

Don’t be afraid to completely fail. No matter what (seriously), at least you’ll be able to say that you did something different and expressed yourself creatively. No big deal. Plus, it’s just makeup. It’s not a permanent commitment or anything. 🙂

I hope you join in! Also, leave me your Instagram handle here in the comments so I can follow you.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
