Makeup is so much more than beautifying one’s face and the popularity of beauty challenges across the world has proved just that. They’ve shown us that besides just a feline flick of eyeliner or a swipe of red lipstick, makeup can be a lot of fun. On YouTube and Instagram, vloggers are challenging each other to duels, except instead of swords, these one’s involve mascara wands. So take a look at these beauty challenges which have caught the fancy of beauty bloggers worldwide…

The past few years have seen highlighter become one of the most popular makeup items and the Full Face Highlighter challenge takes it to the next level. In this task, beauty lovers replaced every item in their makeup kit with a highlighter instead. The result was an extremely shiny face which had an almost extra-terrestrial glow.

This challenge brought to light the dependence of a makeup addict on her mirror and forced her to go ahead and apply without it. It all depended on feel and how well one’s muscle memory retained the light touch of blush and subtle stroke of mascara. Expect to see a whole lot of scribbles in place of eyeliner and clown-like patches of blush.

Ever wondered what 100 layers of applied makeup looks like? Well, neither have we. But the beauty sphere went ahead and did it anyway. The challenge comprised of layer after layer of foundation, lipstick and blush while some brave vloggers even took their entire face makeup to the 100 layer mark. Be prepared because it gets a little messy in this one!

Contouring taking over the world is not new information so to rustle things up, the vloggers went ahead and took it up a notch. Aptly called extreme contouring, the craze was about using household items to create the right contour on the cheeks. That brought on an onslaught of mundane objects like spoons, plates and even whisks being used to shape the face. Now this one takes extreme to a new height!
