Spring to Summer Makeup: Pretty in Purple

Spring to Summer Makeup: Pretty in Purple

I ended up layering two eyeshadows in this look, because I felt like Da Bling was really just too pink/dark for the look — I put Digit on top of it to lighten it, and I liked it, but I think you could omit Da Bling and just use Digit instead.  I also had to physically restrain myself from applying a bright fuchsia lipgloss on top of the lip combination, because that’s what I always do.  I’m not sold on the lip combo with this look, but I do like it alone at least.

P.S. — NARS Eyeshadow Base review coming tomorrow… I swear!

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Da Bling eyeshadow on the inner third of the lid and pull upwards along the inner crease, then overlay with Digit eyeshadow. Lightly blend Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow on the middle of the lid with the 239. Next, apply Psychedelic Sister eyeshadow into the crease with the 226, lightly blending onto the outer lid. Blend Digit eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Ransom eyeliner on the lower lash line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Pro Lash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Nymph blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Funbathing lipstick first, and then layer Splashing lipglass for a complementing lip.

Okay, first of all, your skin looks flawless ! It looks even more amazingly beautiful than usual !
I like the look although I can’t pull off pink eyeshadow with my blue eyes, makes me look like I just cried. The blush is lovely too.

Thank you so much!!

Just keep working with — seriously, the first time I wore pink eyeshadow, my mom asked if the sky had fallen!

Yes!!! I just can’t get enough purples throughout the year, today I was thinking on what nail polish color I should wear and I really wanted to wear a summery color, I mean I love corals and golds (and all the other colors) too but it was so difficult I ended choosing some options and all were different tones of purple!!!! I guess I also needed my purple color today =)

Lovely! I’m glad you didn’t add that fuchsia gloss, because this combination is *stunning*! Honestly, it’s so perfect that it’s a little ridiculous. 😛

It TOTALLY matches my shirt, too. Like beyond matchy-matchy, which may have been why I was like, “HMM… I WANT…. NO… MUST RESIST!!!”

But thank you!! 🙂 I definitely thought it was a gorg combo!

Hey Ali,

It really depends on when I do it. A lot of times I procrastinate and don’t end up doing a look until late in the day (even though I start my day at 7am going, “I will have my makeup on by 10!”), so I don’t really wear it anywhere. If I wear upper lash liner, I have to remove it pretty quickly or else my eyes get *really* swollen and itchy, so I don’t wear those looks out for sure.

If I do something in the AM, then I definitely wear it all day. I’m not sure if you’re just wondering if I’d wear it out or not, ’cause I would pretty much wear any of the looks I post here out – except maybe a few of the super, super intense ones (e.g. the Lady Gaga “Bad Romance” look) unless I had an occasion.

This is gorgeous. I do a much tamer purple eye with Digit and Poison Pen and wish I had the courage to wear bolder looks like this.

You may have just sold me on that lip combo. I’d been looking forward to MAC to the Beach because the colors sounded great and the packaging is right up my alley but nothing seemed to work for me. This softer version of Fun Bathing may be just the thing.

Wow, I absolutely love this look! It’s so fun and girly. My favorite part is the purple liner on the bottom.

I LOOOVE the high quality pictures on your blog, I just love looking at post after post, picture after picture :).

Aww, thanks a lot, Carina! 🙂 I work really hard to get good photos, haha, so I am glad you think they are so good 🙂

Hmm, maybe Very Violet. Plum Dressing would be too red, I’d say… more like a mix of Parfait Amour & Plum Dressing, perhaps?

Lip combo = Gorgeous! I am definitely seriously considering getting Funbathing when it comes out here…

I think this would look beautiful with Designer Purple or Almost Noir pearlglide on the the lower lash line too.


This look just calls my name LOL! My fav colors! I must get Digit! I am getting my makeup done on Saturday so I will buy it then. You look great with this! I hope it looks as great on my blue eyes as it does on brown;)

Love this! So gorgeous.
Q: Would you/Have you ever considered doing YouTube tutorial videos for your looks? (Sorry if you’ve been asked this before!)

I absolutely love purples, and that lip combo is just beautiful – think I need to get hold of Splashing and try this myself

Very gorgeous! I really want to buy all the MAC eyeshadows you use, but I then I have to eat only bread and water for the rest of the month. 😉 xoxoxo

Hmm, do you ever get tired of hearing how gorgeous your photos are? Oh well, you’ll hear it again. Beautiful look – definitely one of my favorites on you. Maybe I’ll try matching my eyeshadow to my clothes, too…
