Ready for a challenge?!?

Update: I am getting overwhelmed by the amount of looks being sent in.  Please upload them onto my Facebook wall and I will post some of my fav looks here.


When I first started my blog, I kept up with a FOTD Challenge Calendar which originated in my more active Makeupalley FOTD board days.  It was a fun way to be creative and stay inspired.  Basically there is a different theme everyday and your challenge is to do your makeup however you interpret the theme.  The fun part of this challenge is how different everyone’s makeup comes out.  I WILL be posting your looks here on my blog!  I will also be participating with this challenge when possible.  Obviously, nobody can do every single theme but it’s a fun way to stay motivated.




I kept the themes pretty vague so how you interpret a theme such as “Disney” will be entirely up to you.  Typically, on the FOTD board some of our looks got pretty over the top.  I tried to place the themes that had the potential to have over the top looks on the weekends so that we don’t freak out our bosses at work.

The first day of this calendar is next Monday, July 11, and the theme is “Fight the Hype”.  Let’s showcase products that don’t get a lot of love but are still amazing!!

The last time I mentioned a Challenge Calendar I got a lot of good feedback!   I think this could be a fun way to bring a close-knit community even closer so please feel free to tweet, blog or facebook this post to the rest of the beauty community.

I adore you guys and I can’t wait to see all of the looks!  You can email your looks to me at nymphette(at)iamnymphette(dot)com or of course you can send them to me on Twitter.

There is a downloadable calendar on my Facebook Fan page.  Click here to go there.

  1. love this, great idea!

    • You must join us!!! =)

  2. I love this idea and I am sooooo going to participate but I need to print this calendar where can I get a copy of it?

    • I am going to twitpic it… Are you on twitter? If not email me and I will email you a copy.

  3. This is an amazing idea! I hardly do my makeup anymore because I lack the motivation. I might actually go in on this one!

    • YAY! This is exactly why I did this.. I’ve been doing the same looks lately and I needed a little push! I’d love if you join in on the fun!

  4. Unfortunately I don’t get to wear much make-up anymore since my job leaves me feeling grimy but this will be a fun challenge for my off days. And since I don’t have set days off it’ll be a surprise every week!

    • That’s awesome! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

  5. I completely agree with Jillian. I have a 7 drawer Sterlite continer full of makeup and dont use any of it because I am bored of it. I have no motivation and I find sleeping in most morning sounds better than trying to come up with a new makeup combo. Lately, my m/u consists of bold lips, eye liner and mascara…big whoop!

    Could I get an email also? I am not on twitter…I need time to co-or-din-ate my attack plan! LOL

    • I sent you a link to my Facebook account which has a downloadable calendar. If you don’t have a Facebook let me know.

      • I hope you decide to keep this going. I have enjoyed all of the looks everyone is doing. :D

        • I will do my best to!!

  6. This is so cool!! Awesome idea! =) I think I just might do it!

    • Awesome! Can’t wait to see your looks!

  7. i love this idea and great themes!! im going to brainstorm ;)

    • YAY!!!

  8. This is a seriously awesome idea! I can’t guarantee that I’d be able to do it everyday but I totes want to do looks from every theme on this calendar :)

    • YAY!!! Looking forward to seeing your looks! I don’t think it’s possible for anybody to do EVERY single day lol

  9. i like the idea! hopefully i’ll be able to come up with some of the themes.

    • I’m sure you will have no problem =)

  10. Oh man, this sounds SO MUCH FUN!

    • YAY you must join!!!!

  11. Oooh i am excited!! gonna TRY and do this everyday! oh and i have a question, what is juxtaposed? i feel kind of stupid asking this but yeah…haha well whatever

    • Yay awesome! Juxtaposed is when too things are placed side by side to compare and contrast so when I think of makeup being juxtaposed I think of really contrasty makeup. Opposites…

  12. Love this and have been reading your posts all over twitter. I am totally going to join in and do this challenge. Sorry I am a bit late to the fun and games, I have been extremely busy.

    • Awww it’s never too late to be inspired! Looking forward to your looks!
