Weekly Make Up Challenge #1 - MAC

I'm so sorry for being rubbish at posting this past few days, I've just been so busy! The fact I have less free time has inspired this little make up challenge. I was watching a youtuber who has been giving herself a basket of make up to use each week rather than having to go through her entire collection. She has been doing it mostly to decide whether she wants to keep the items in her collection whereas I'm doing it mostly to reduce the time I take putting on my make up in the mornings! I'm only in university one day a week but I need to spend every other day doing work too. I'm the queen of procrastination when I want to be and since I enjoy putting on make up so much, I'll spend ages doing it to avoid reading about Puritans or whatever...

So! I wasn't sure whether to go with a colour theme or a category (i.e. high end, drugstore etc.) but this week I thought I'd go for the brand I have the most of; MAC. Here's what I've given myself for the week:

Face & Body Foundation in C3 
Studio Sculpt Concealer in NC30
Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Dark

Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle
Notable Blush
Warm Soul Mineralize Blush

Groundwork, Vintage Selection & Soft Ochre Paint Pots
(all eyeshadows are the round pans)
Top Row: Blondes Gold Pressed Pigment, Antique Gold Pressed Pigment (almost done!), Tempting, Patina
Bottom Row: Blondes Gold Pressed Pigment, Spiritualize Pressed Pigment, Amber Lights, Satin Taupe

Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara

Lipsticks in Rebel and Shy Girl
Lip Conditioner
Soothing Beige Tinted Lip Conditioner

The only products I don't have from MAC are a primer and brow gel so I'm using Hard Candy Sheer Envy Primer and a clear mascara from MUA. Other than that, these are the only products I can use for the week.

I'm excited to see how I feel on Sunday! I'll go over the list and give you my thoughts then.

  1. This is an interesting challenge! I would be unable to do this according to brand as I have hardly any items from the same brands. I have a lot of make up from so many different lines. Currently doing P10P and it is so satisfying using old stuff up. Looking forward to seeing if you can stick to one brand all week!

  2. It is interesting! I'm keeping a record each day about how I feel about certain products. One thing's for sure - I miss all my other make up! I suppose that's a good thing because it means I'm using a greater variety of products that I thought I'd forgotten. Any suggestions on what next week's should be? I was thinking of using US drugstore products as I'm waiting on a swap box from there but I'm not sure everyone would enjoy that since the products are less accessible?xx

  3. US drugstore products would be good, I suppose having broader catergories makes it a bit easier!

  4. What an interesting challenge!
