elevator makeup challenge huda beauty

Hey my loves! Life is pretty hectic, and I’m constantly doing my makeup on-the-go, mostly in the car, and I’ve become a bit of a pro. So, as you know I love a good challenge, especially when it involves makeup, I decided to challenge myself to see if I could do a full face in one elevator journey… Not just my lipstick, an entire face of makeup from the time it would take me to get from the basement to our offices on the top floor. Here’s how it went:

UPDATE: Hey guys, we had so many amazing entries, we decided we couldn’t pick just one winner, and we’re now choosing three! This has been updated below 🙂

I had so much fun doing this #ElevatorMakeupChallenge, and now I’m challenging all of YOU, to join me! And because we want to help all your makeup dreams come true, we’re offering $5,000 (USD) cash scholarship to each of three lucky winners to spend on a makeup training course or makeup kit of your choice.

All you have to do is film yourself doing your makeup in the lift (or get your friend to film you) and complete your makeup in the time it takes you to get from the bottom of the building to the top. Upload your video to your Instagram page using hashtag #ElevatorMakeupChallenge between July 18th and August 10th (closing 23:59 GMT). We’ll choose ten finalists, and you’ll get the chance to vote for your fav video on our blog from August 12th. The vote will be open from August 12th (17:00 GMT) and will close August 13th (17:00 GMT). The three videos with the most votes will win the giveaway. The three winners will then be announced on our blog on August 14th 2018.

I can’t wait to see how you guys do, we’ll be sharing some of our fav challenges throughout the week on Instagram, so get ready, and stay tuned!
