Style: challenge rejects, makeup

At the weekend I set myself a super hard challenge.  If you’re interested, you can read all about it.  Prep for the week obviously had to include Pinterest and a bit of experimentation. This can only leave room for some rejected looks.  Who doesn’t love a good Pinterest fail?  In fact, I’m going to be kind to myself and say they’re just experiments that need further work.

These four looks are the ones I was attempting.  Not work appropriate at all.  No good for the week styling challenge at all, but good for breaking the week up.  All work and no play and all that.

(Please excuse my peeling.  I spent a very irresponsible day in the sun without any sun cream and am still paying for my stupidity.)


Look number one.  Nice little pink swoop and a frosty blue inner corner.  I was quite impressed with myself for getting a straight line.  There’s a first time for everything.


Look number two.  Red lines and a big cat eye flick.  This was a pain.  Eye shadow failed completely but lipstick came to the rescue.


Look number three.  Little red bag.  Who doesn’t love to accentuate their under eye circles with a nice red swoosh?


Look number four.  Little orange inner bag.  It could be because I feel like I’m looking crazy tired this week, but there’s some weird attraction to these bag coverups.  Lipstick may not be the best thing to go near eye balls though.


Don’t panic, I have taken the rest of the week more seriously and have actually attempted to follow the nice day to day makeup options available for pinning.  I just don’t think I will ever get bored of the makeup on Pinterest.  Maybe one day I’ll have to try one of these looks in the outside world.  Until then, maybe I’ll just have to stick with practicing new techniques and colours in the safety of my own house.

Stay tuned!

Much love!
