Community Challenge: Color Blocking (Pinks & Yellows)


Hello beautiful Makeup Geeks! We hope you had an excellent month, and we are happy to see you here for the March Challenge. Before we go further in depth on the theme this month, we wanted to say MARVELOUS job on the February Challenge. Once again, Amber and I were ecstatic over all the fabulous looks you created! We hope to see you all back this month along with lots of new faces! :)

Color Blocking

For the March Challenge, we are keeping things simple. Amber and I decided to narrow down the topic as opposed to the previous two months as they have been very broad. This month we want to see what you can create given some extra restrictions. We have no doubt that with your creativity and skill, you will once again keep us on our toes regardless of the color limitations.


Using this flower as color inspiration we have pulled out several shades from the image. From the six shades given, we would like you to create your look. Other than the color restrictions and our standard rules (listed at the bottom of the page), there are no additional requirements for this challenge. You do not have to use all six colors in your look.

And that’s all folks, keeping it simple this month.  However, we know the looks you create will be anything but simple.

 We wish you all a very happy March! Stay healthy and gorgeous as always! :)

 Don’t forget to check out the details (rules and prize) below.
