Going into the holiday season, François Nars imagines a look marked by deep purple-infused hues to match the autumnal mood, offset with hints of sparkle to answer the call for festive touches. Bold, regal purple eyes pair with a berry-stained glossy pout. Metallic tones of silver and gold gild the eyes, tempered by a sheer yet statement-making lip. With such rich attention-demanding colors adorning the eyes and lips, cheeks and nails need nothing but a hint of peachy-pink made even more flattering with a whisper of pure gold.

So, I’m pretty sure I have to have Silent Night eyeshadow. Like I will die without it.


  • Jolie Poupee Duo Eyeshadow Vibrant violet/pearlescent purple ($32.00)
  • Night Life Single Eyeshadow Silver with silver particles ($21.00)
  • Silent Night Single Eyeshadow Metallic with gold particles ($22.00)

Temptalia Asks You

How important is packaging to you? Do you not buy certain types? Do you care how it looks? Has packaging ever caused you to impulse buy?

Reallyyy quick look I did running out the door to school last night. I originally was just going to try Crushed Bougainvillea as a lip stain, but ah, such is life. Got a little carried away! More to show you what things look like than a real look, I’d say. (Oh, and I didn’t like how the cheeks turned out so I pretty much rubbed them away and went with no cheeks instead, LOL.)

Happy Friday!

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (soft neutral beige), Ricepaper eyeshadow (light neutral), Mineral eyeshadow (cool dark brown), Lancome High Deficils Mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Crushed Bougainvillea CCB (raspberry), Fresh Morning CCB (pale light pink)
  • Lips: Crushed Bougainvillea CCB (raspberry), Bait lipglass (light pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Mineral = Mystery; Crushed Bougainvillea = Loverush/Plumful; Bait = Flusterose

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre paint pot all over the lid as the base with the 249. Apply Ricepaper eyeshadow all over lid and brow bone. Darken the outer lid using Mineral eyeshadow and drag into crease using the 239. Finish with Lancome High Deficils mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Crushed Bougainvillea using the 190 brush. Highlight cheeks with Fresh Morning CCB on cheekbones with the 188. Apply Crushed Bougainvillea CCB to lips, and then top with Bait lipglass for color and shine.
