About this Look
Some may know how many times I spoke about waiting for my daughter to send this palette, so I was soooo happy to create my first look. I was a tad overwhelmed with the colors and actually had to redo one eye because I used too many. LOL! Any hoot, this look is a tribute to the mauve purple colors, definitely a smoky look and more so for the evening, though I’d wear it (and others here too) any time. Again, the pictures don’t do justice to the pigmentation (dark and more dramatic) nor the metallic sparkle.
This look would be better with a more deep smoky purple or purple-grey eyeliner, but the one I used works in indoor to evening lighting. with the camera and bright daylight, it looks grape purple, but not so much so in person. I won't go into the face prep (as I usually do) since the foundation was an obscure one that I found at the thrift store and likely not to be found, brand name "Dark Blond" Moist Foundation (from Denmark). Dewy and a texture like Natasha Denona's Face Glow Foundation. Oddly, they don't put the colors on the tubing, only the box, which of course, I didn't keep and forgot to mark.
