Community Challenge: Influential Women of History

Hello Muggies!! Amber and I will be doing the monthly challenges from here on out. We are new to this, so please bear with us! :) We are transitioning the Community Challenges to a monthly event — this will give more of you a chance to enter and more time to prepare your looks.   It will also give us the time to get some nicer prizes lined up and put together a nicer experience overall.

For the challenge this month, we couldn’t think of anything more inspiring than some of the most influential women in history. Throughout their lives they’ve impacted us in different ways, some are known as style and/or beauty icons, and others for their daring and adventuresome spirits.  Regardless, they all have one thing in common; they have paved the way for us women today with their fearless lifestyle choices. We all see a little bit of these women in ourselves, they are extremely relate-able. They motivate us to push the limits in our own lives, to be bold and step outside of our comfort zone, bringing out the best in all of us. They are for a lack of better word.. Inspiring.

So choose your muse, be inspired and get started!! We can’t list them all (there’s entirely too many!), but here are some of our favorites to help get you started:


 Audrey Hepburn

Grace Jones

Diana Ross

Marilyn Monroe

Grace Kelly

Coco Chanel



Amelia Earhart

Marie Antoinette

As you can see from the photos, not all are wearing makeup, or some just very little.  We are challenging you this month to draw out the colors, patterns, and over all styles from these ladies.  Use your imagination, be creative and have fun! :)

Last but not least, here are the details (rules, and prize) for the challenge.
