Check out my blog www.presstoblend.com for my funny Halloween homage to Iris Apfe. My look is incomplete because a "good" friend was supposed to bring me all of the bracelets but left them home!!!

That was to cute!...and very clever.  Thanks for the shout-out to our challenge team.  Again, VERY NICE BLOG!!!!   urock.gif

I really enjoyed this challenge with you ladies.  I'm sorry I started so late b/c it was a lot of fun. 

 

I look forward to February, and I agree let's do a fall colored themed for November.

 

So Burnt Orange, Red, Golden Yellow/Orange, Brown,  and what else???

Seems to be an echo up in here...(tee hee, so sorry...I double quoted by accident).  Seriously, Long before BCA Month & our pink challenge, I was thinking of doing a weekly theme as a way to use up some of my products, and BTM for items on my running wish-list.  So, autumn theme one week, red lips another, or a 'color family' like orange & coral, and using one foundation for an entire week, and or a paint pot.  I really need to see some empty containers soon!  ohboy.gif

So can we get you to spearhead that movement Madame President?

post #253 of 290

One of the best things out of this Pink challenge was that it forced me to be creative and come out of my rut. Before, I would just slap on some lipstick and keep it moving but because I knew that I was doing pix everyday I had to revert to the good old days when I'd beat that face every morning before I stepped out. I've actually made a small dent in some of my products and of course this always leaves room for me to buy more but I need to make use of some of the stuff I have before Christmas gets here!   santa.gif

Haha, I just noticed the lip combo! Isn't it pretty!

Oh I totally owe that combo to you!!!  I was looking through my stash and came across another very dark lipglass that I'd forgotten about...'Desire.'  I'll be giving that some love soon as well.

Only if everyone submits ideas about what they would like to do, and we do it on a weekly basis to avoid 'theme burnout.'    I'm in!!           party.gif

A new theme a week?  What about every two weeks, to give us late comers time to catch up.  I don't know why I started thinking of more ideas towards the end of this challenge.  Oh yeah, work drama and etc...  

 

I have another idea after we do our Autumn theme.   After seeing the Spring 13 Pantone colors, which are going to be beautiful for us WOC, lets have a Month were we do the Pantone color scheme for the season.  

 

Ok, I just looked up the Pantone Fall 2012 scheme and it is similiar to an Autumn theme, but the Autumn colors I was thinking of are richer darker/ like the color of leaves when they turn.   My mother has a tree outside of her house that turns the most beautiful shade of burgundy red.

Another idea is pin up girl looks.  maybe we'll do that for a week, that might get boring.   

 

I was reading a fashion web magazine, and glamorous goth is a theme this year.  that might be an idea.  I'll post the article later. B/c it is not your Marilyn Manson goth.  

 

We can have a use up your oldest product theme.

If you guys are doing fall looks, I won't be joining unfortunately because it's summer here in SA so can't exactly wear fall colors smiles.gif But any other themes, count me in smiles.gif

Okay, presstoblend & prettypackages...let's do this!  Glammygirl we don't want you to be left out so why not participate using colors currently appropriate for you region?  Since part of the goal is to help us to use up our products (at least that was my personal intent) perhaps we should be more flexible.  This should be fun and not burdensome.  Individually, we can use the same foundation or paintpot, or even eyeshadow for that matter.  Whatever works for you, within the broad and general theme of the week or two weeks.  It's our project so we can tweak it any way you want.  I don't know if you want to post what you wear on a daily basis?  What about selecting one favorite of the week and share that particular one.  Then others can try that look, if so inclined.  Should we go Monday to Monday for a two week period or an entire month?  I'll give folks a chance to weigh in and then I'll start a new thread.  

 

Speaking of autumn & trees and fall colors, I took this photo of our Japanese Maple today.  I happened to look out and the color was so vibrant that I snapped a photo.  It reminded me of Hidden Treasure blush, which is what I'm wearing today.

Haven't heard from anyone else yet.  Perhaps when everyone gets back into a 'post storm routine' we can focus on the monthly challenge.

Hello Medgal07! Sorry for the radio silence but I'm back!!! I guess we were all caught up in the election hubbub but I'm ready girl! I'm game whichever way you decide to go. And yes, my goal is to use up some of my product as well. Prettypackages  I visit the Pantone site often and saw this and Fiber and I have actually matched up some of the colors on the site to items in our combined collections. Maybe we could look at the chart and each put a look together and post. Let me know ma'am! Btw...the picture is beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

No problem presstoblend.  I'll start the thread within a day or so.  I hope several people will participate.  I think it can be a fun way to share various makeup looks, while focusing on our individual products that we'd like to use up.  That was my original intent.  I had started some time ago and now have several empties to B2M next week.  We can have a theme or color scheme of the month. If people share their favorite look for a given week instead of a daily look it should seem less labor intensive.  We want this to be fun and not feel like a chore.  Those who wish to post photos can do so, but simply listing the products used is fine for those of us who are too shy to post a pic.  I think I'll call the thread 'Theme Makeup with a Purpose' or 'Purposeful Theme Makeup'

^Hey All,

 

Don't forget that there is a Shop Your Stash Challenge under the chat forum.

 

The folks there only use products in their stash in an effort to use things up.

 

Its a great thread.

I agree, I want to use up my products before they go to waste. Plus I might have to go on a forced no buy now.

 

Pressedtoblend. I'll get you that article as soon as I can.

Just to put it out there: I am going to start incorporating two of my favorite colours: Peach and Turquoise into my makeup looks from now on to honor my aunt who has gynaecological cancer!
