#FWSBeautyChallenge Inspiration: Fresh Beauty Ideas to Try This Week

Yesterday officially kicked off the #FWSBeautyChallenge! I had been pushing myself lately to bring the fun back into my daily routine. I wanted to get more creative with it all. Try some of the looks I'm always pinning instead of just sticking with the quickest and easiest. And thus the challenge was born!

If you're thinking of joining in (and you totally should!), you can pick any days from the calendar prompts- you can do as little or as much as you choose- and just put your own personal spin on the theme!

Every day you post is a new entry so the more you post, the more likely you are to win!

And now for the REALLY fun part! I've been getting a few questions about the prompts, so I thought I'd give a more in depth look at the ideas behind the daily themes and help get all the inspirational/creative juices flowing!

*Sidebar: These are just my own personal ideas in case you would like some more clarification or feel stuck on any one prompt. Please know I want anyone participating to FEEL FREE to take as much liberty with the themes as their hearts desire. There are no "rules" to this challenge.
End rant. Resume post. :)

 

Friday, 7/3: My Go-To Lip Color

I think this one's pretty self-explanatory. I want to see your standby shade! It's a fun way to see everyone's favorites and maybe get some new ideas for yourself. Like virtual shopping with your BFFs! You can simply show us your pucker or the lip color itself- get creative with it!

Saturday, 7/4: Red, White, or Blue

Pick one or sport all three! Show us how you're rocking your patriotic spirit!

Sunday, 7/4: Laid Back Sunday Vibes

Is there anything better than perfectly undone hair or glowing barely-there makeup? Not in my book. Show us how you do casual cool.

Monday, 7/6: Beauty Bag Favorites

The IG equivalent of looking in someone's medicine cabinet. Show us your favorites and we'll show you ours. (Tip for product image newbies: if you don't have a visually appealing surface to take photos on, a white board or even a large piece of white paper can serve as a great crisp backdrop.)

Tuesday, 7/7: Tropical Color Mani

This will be a fun one for me because I always tend to go for the moody nail color choices and this will push me to go with something bright and summery. Pick your favorite bright color or go full-on nail art- it's up to you!

Wednesday, 7/8: Go for the Gold

Gold is my all-time favorite color and the possibilities for this prompt are really endless. Show us how you shine!

Thursday, 7/9: How I Rock a Top Knot

Top knots are my favorite hair trend to come out in the past couple of years. Show us your favorite top knot variation or try something completely new. There are so many different top knot ideas out there.
