A Challenge for March...

The sun is shining, the snow is melting, birds are chirping and all that good stuff...
March has finally arrived and spring is slowly creeping back into my life!

Last month I challenged myself to do a blog post every single day, this month is a bit of a different challenge and I was inspired by Yuliya to join "Eyes Of March" - which means using a different eyeshadow each day this month!
Now on some days I don't wear any eyeshadow (for example yesterday) so there was no use in boring you with stating that. But each time I do put eyeshadow on, I will document it and let you know what I've used!

Now, if I use one eyeshadow as a lid colour one day, and then as a crease colour with a new, different eyeshadow another day - that's perfectly fine. The key here is just to try and incorporate a new, different colour each time.
It's a perfect little challenge for those of us who own so much eyeshadow yet we get stuck in a rut (*cough* my bare study-brule-wedge rut or my satin taupe-taupe grise rut). It's cool to get re-aquainted with some forgotten favourites from our collections.

Now I'm still going to do different posts as well this month - doing straight up eyeshadow posts only might get a bit dull, but if I do have a different eyeshadow on that day, I will include it at the bottom of the post - or if I'm not using any eyeshadow at all that day, you'll know because I just won't mention it!

Without further ado, today's "eye":

MAC Bare Study (base)
MAC Shroom (lid)
Chanel Vert Khaki (crease and outer V)
MAC Raven Kohl Power (liner)
Eyeko Big Eyes mascara

What do you think of this little challenge?


  1. GREAT idea! I'm always up for trying to use up items in my stash. Might do this too!

  2. Love the idea, because I have always enjoyed your makeup, even if was only the mascara and some liner LOL, thank you Sandra :)

  3. I love this! I might give this a try too. The eyeshadows look amazing on you

  4. I think that is a great challenge. I can't wait to see new ideas! I get so stuck doing the same thing. Can't wait to see! and yes...Spring is almost here!!!
    Happy Day! Love your header pic by the way!!!
    XO Carrie

  6. Awesome idea, today's eyeshadow looks great x

  7. I LOVE this idea, I'm definitely going to give it a go :D

  8. great idea! i should try to do it too

  9. That's a great idea Sandra. Your camera takes really wicked pics too. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your eyeshadow collection. I too am a HUGE satin taupe lover... wearing Vex today, like it as well...however it's no SatinT. I was excited to see you talk about Club!!! I'm surprised, as I thought it might be out of your 'neutral' comfort zone- but I agree, it's the bomb!

  10. I love Vert Khaki. So beautiful! You are a master of the neutral eye! I love it!

    Good luck with this March Challenge! I look forward to the posts!


  11. Love how the shadows look together! =)

  12. Love the idea! Today's look is great. I must try Stain Taupe and Taupe Grise together.. never tried that! Thanks for the idea!
