The One with the Instagram September Beauty Challenge 2017 {Week One}

Since starting my blog Instagram two weeks ago, I’ve been having a fabulous time interacting with fellow beauty bloggers and Instagrammers (is that what we call them?!). I only wish I joined sooner! Instagram in general is my favourite social media app. I love taking photos and I love looking at them so it’s right up my alley.

This September, I am participating in a challenge called the “September Beauty Challenge 2017” and it is hosted by the lovely Rachel and Nerida. The idea is to post a new photo every day of September with your interpretation of that day’s theme! It’s so much fun and gives me a lot of inspiration for new posts.

I am new to flatlays so this challenge has really forced me to get my creative juices flowing. Some days, I just don’t have a lot of time – especially during the hours of sunlight, which is essential for good photos if you’re only using your phone – but I am certainly trying my hardest!

I thought I would share with you guys 7 or 8 posts at a time here on my blog. So without further ado, here are my first 8 days worth of posts!

Day 1 of the #septemberbeautychallenge2017 is "Foundation Stash." Here is my collection!

Day 2 of the #septemberbeautychallenge2017 is "budget buy." The products I chose are not only really affordable but great quality too! Look below for more details! ⬇️ ———– 1️⃣ Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara is only $6.97 at Walmart right now! I got back into this mascara recently. It has a curved brush that fits perfectly for my eyes and it coats every lash for nice fanned out long lashes! No flaking or smudging either! 👍 @covergirl 2️⃣ Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer costs $10.96 at Walmart. This concealer is so impressive because it doesn't crease and it has good coverage without feeling heavy! @maybelline 3️⃣ Covergirl Katy Kat Matte Lipstick is on sale for $6.97 at Walmart. I have the shade "Sphynx" which is the perfect nude for me. It has a demi-matte finish and I love how creamy it feels on the lips! 👄 @covergirl 4️⃣ Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder is a steal at only $7.98 at Walmart! I use this powder all over my face – even under the eye with no creasing! It keeps my oily skin at bay for hours and doesn't look too heavy! @rimmellondoncan ——— There are so many great budget friendly products out there and these are just a small handful of the ones I enjoy! . . . . . #septemberbeautychallenge2017 #budgetmakeup #drugstoremakeup #affordablemakeup #makeup #beauty #beautyblogger #beautyblog #blog #bbloggersca #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #wakeupandmakeup #covergirl #mascara #lipstick #maybelline #concealer #rimmel #pressedpowder #flatlay #beautyflatlay

Day 4 of the #septemberbeautychallenge2017 is "latest purchase." My latest is actually the Naked Heat palette but since I already featured it, I'm going with my second latest purchase – Nudestix Magnetic Matte Lip Colour in Rose 🌹 @nudestix ・・・ I'm not normally a fan of a matte formula because they are too drying and I hate that uncomfortable feeling. BUT I fell in love with this colour at Generation Beauty and had to pick one up for myself. ・・・ I went with a more simplistic photo arrangement today. I wanted to incorporate leaves because the weather has been feeling a lot like Fall lately. I don't have much time to play around today so this is what I came up with in a pinch. . . . . . #septemberbeautychallenge2017 #nudestix #mattelipstick #lipstick #pinklipstick #nudelipstick #makeup #beauty #beautyblogger #beautyblog #blog #bbloggersca #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #wakeupandmakeup #flatlay #beautyflatlay

Day 6 of the #septemberbeautychallenge2017 is "blusher." I surprisingly don't have a big blush collection despite it being one of my favourite makeup items! Check below for details! ⬇️ ・・・ 1️⃣ Seraphine Botanicals Blush in Happy Hibiscus 🌺 @seraphinebotanicals 2️⃣ ModelCo Blush Cheek Powder in Peach Bellini 🍑 @modelco_cosmetics 3️⃣ Julep Crème to Powder Blush Stick in Sweet Peach 🍑 @julepbeauty 4️⃣ Pixi Beauty Blush Duo in Rose Gold 🌹 @pixibeauty 5️⃣ Seraphine Botanicals Ginger + Gold Illuminating Peach + Gold Blush 🥇 @seraphinebotanicals 6️⃣ bareMinerals All Over Face Colour in True 🤞 @bareminerals 7️⃣ theBalm Instain Long Wearing Powder Staining Blush in Pinstripe 📍 @thebalm_cosmetics . . . . . #septemberbeautychallenge2017 #blush #blusher #blushcollection #blushstash #makeup #beauty #beautyblogger #beautyblog #blog #bbloggersca #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #wakeupandmakeup #flatlay #beautyflatlay #slaytheflatlay

Day 7 of the #septemberbeautychallenge2017 is "throwback." I decided to post a #tbt selfie of a makeup look I really loved. ・・・ This photo was taken in October of 2016. It's a laying down shot, hence the weird positioning of my hair and face. 🙈I've always saved this picture but never knew if I liked it or not. The makeup I can remember is below. ⬇️ ・・・ 👁 Buxom Eyeshadows in Room Service, Made of Jade and Bold Bling @buxomcosmetics 👄 Julep It's Whipped Matte Lip Mousse in Bisou @julepbeauty . . . . . #septemberbeautychallenge2017 #selfie #tbt #throwback #throwbackthursday #makeup #beauty #beautyblogger #beautyblog #blog #bbloggersca #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #wakeupandmakeup

    1. Thank you, I really appreciate it. I didn’t realize how hard it was going to be to find time (and light! haha) to do them but I’m determined to complete September’s challenge!


    1. Thank you! Nothing wrong with your photography! 🙂 Looks great to me! I’ve just been getting into bettering my photography skills lately. I used to just use random blankets for backdrops because it was all I had haha.
