My Daughter Picks My Makeup Challenge

This week I wanted to share a fun makeup challenge I did with my daughter where she chose the makeup I would use!

There are different variations of this challenge such as My Family, Husband, Boyfriend, Friend Picks My Makeup Challenge, but since my daughter likes makeup, I thought it would be fun to have her pick!

The Makeup Look

First I started off with eyeshadow primer, and my daughter picked the NYX Glitter Primer because she liked it was shiny. Next was an eyeshadow palette, and I let my daughter pick from 10 palettes (I have more, but I did not want to overwhelm her). She immediately picked the Jolie Beauty Bomb Dot Com Palette because she liked the glitter, and she chose the red Cherry Bomb shade because it reminded her of Christmas. I told my daughter that the glitter goes on top so I needed something underneath, and I asked to her pick another palette. She chose the Juvia’s Place Warrior 3 Palette, and of course she picked the 2 shimmer shades Kongo and Karama along with the pink shade Fanti. I only use 1 mascara at a time, so I used the Tarte Lights, Cameras, Lashes mascara to complete my eye look.

Next up was the face makeup! I had two primers, and my daughter picked the Laura Mercier Primer because it was bigger than the Fenty Primer. For concealer, I only had 1 concealer as I misplaced my Uoma concealer, and I used the Tarte Creaseless concealer under my eyes. For foundation, I had 6 different liquid and powder foundations for my daughter to pick from, and she ended up choosing the newest liquid foundation from my mother which is the Tarte Face Tape Foundation. Since my daughter chose a liquid foundation for me to use, I set it with the Danessa Myricks Powder. I like the Tarte Face Tape Foundation, but it is a little too light for me, so I topped it with the NYX Powder Foundation as well. As far as blush, I showed my daughter all the blush singles and the Beauty Bakerie palette I had, and she chose the Beauty Bakerie Pisa Cake Blush Palette because it had 3 colors. I told her to pick one color, and she picked the Bon Appétit shade. Since the blush palette has a lot of fallout in the pan, I made sure to use my brush lightly. For a highlighter, I showed my daughter the powder and liquid highlighters I had, and she picked the one liquid highlighter I had because it reminded her of a baby bottle. I am not the biggest of liquid highlighters, but I went ahead and used the OPV Beauty Illuminator on my cheeks.

Lastly, I needed to complete my look with a lip product, and I first let my daughter choose between regular lipstick, liquid lipstick, or lip gloss that I kept in separate makeup bags. She chose liquid lipstick, so I gave her the makeup bag and she picked the Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick in Crimson.

Overall, it was fun using the makeup my daughter picked especially since she picked shades I normally would not use together like red and blue eyeshadow with red lipstick.

  1. Great idea for a makeup look. I love my glitter too and I am in my thirties. What’s the NYX glitter primer like? I have not tried any of the palettes you used. How many palettes do you have? I bought Revolution Pro Astrological, I Heart Makeup Eggs in Dragon (reds and golds) and Unicorn (purples) as well as Revolution’s Shimmer Brick palette (I have 1 shimmer brick in Rose Gold and love it). My new makeup fixing spray from Technic has glitter in it.

    1. Thank you!
      I love glitter too! The NYX glitter primer is great because it keeps the glitter in place.
      I have too many palettes haha but the Jolie Beauty Bomb Dot Com palette is the only 100% glitter palette I have. I haven’t tried those palettes before! Ooo the Technic makeup spray sounds pretty!


  2. This post made me soo happy! What a lovely and different thing to read! Makes a welcome change to my usual reading, let me tell you!

    Obviously, I love your look. The bold colours really suit you! I miss being little and experimenting with it all!

  3. AW! How special that your daughter also loves makeup! My niece and I filmed a Youtube video called “My niece does my makeup” on my channel and she had a blast! I treasure these moments so much! We are both so girly so every time were together we try on outfits and makeup. Thanks for sharing xx

  4. This is such a lovely idea! Your daughter has a great sense of colour, the red and the blue look fab together. And what a great way to spend some quality mum and daughter time too – I’m going to try this with Flora, thank you!

  5. Such a great idea. I bet she loved choosing all the different pieces for you. Glitter is just fabulous, isn’t it? I like the colour combinations..whenever I’ve tried pink or red as eyeshadow, it looks like I have something wrong with my eye 😂 You have pulled the colours of so well!

  6. Hehe. How old is your daughter? My little niece likes doing my hair though she’s very young but enjoys it. Quite challenging colors she picked and I’ve seen you’re really good with executing colors. It’s my scare so I don’t but I applaud all who do. I love tarte and Laura Mercier products. And I’ve seen them be better than a few of Fenty you’re right about the primer. And I love that mascara. <3Isa a. Blogger

      Thank you! Tarte is one of my favorite brands & I’ve only tried the Fenty primer so I can’t compare other products.
