This month marks challenge #4 in my adventure trying out Rimmel products as one of the Rimmel 10. I thought I’d share with you on here what my challenge entailed for this month and what I did. My challenge, in short, was to use a few products they sent me to embrace my natural beauty for a whole week. I always seem to get their packages about 5-6 days before the challenge is due, so I’ll be a little short of a week, but still pretty close! They have asked that I choose one product to top off my simplified look- either mascara, eyeliner, or a basic lip gloss. I’m supposed to embrace the texture of my natural hair, stick with a simple wardrobe or solid colors and no accessories, and ditch the bright lipstick and bold eyeshadow!
My initial thoughts on this challenge ranged from GREAT!!! to Oh maaaan….. The reason for this is because I have really been rocking the natural look lately- minimal foundation, a nude eye, and very simple outfits, so this challenge doesn’t sound all that challenging for someone who’s been going this route anyways lately. That part that stinks is my maternity wardrobe is very small at the moment, so finding all solids can be tough. Also, I really lean on my accessories and a bold lipstick to brighten my mood lately, so it will be a bummer to ditch them.
So on to the goodies- here’s what I was sent…
If you saw me on Day 1 of the challenge you would definitely think, this girl doesn’t care what she looks like. I embraced the natural texture of my hair, and it looked crummy so I put it in a high messy bun. I bent the rules a little bit and wore a striped skirt, but hey it’s one of my few clothing items that fits my pregnant 4 1/2 month old belly right now so it’ll have to do- plus the colors in the skirt are pretty neutral so I figured it counted as being boring and solid. I’m wearing a black fleece over top of a black t shirt. My makeup routine- foundation, a light dusting of powder, some blush, nude lip gloss, and a bit of mascara. My only accessory I have is my cute puppy, Ruckus.
