Holiday Makeup: Violets and Purples

I did this look for fun before I took a shower on Sunday, and in my hurry, I forgot to take close-ups of the eyes/lips, so there's just a couple of full-face photos, but hopefully you get the idea :)

I wanted to use Illamasqua's Static pure pigment, since it sure looks pretty, but I was so not...

Build a Quad: "Purple Shock"

Rich in purples, Purple Shock is a mix of cool-toned, blue-based purples and a more red-toned fuchsia purple to give it a little more oomph, a little something extra. Featured in the quad are MAC Parfait Amour eyeshadow (a cool-toned medium purple frost), MAC Stars 'n...

Look – Lots of Purples and Too Faced Shadow Insurance

Here's that look I mentioned yesterday! :) I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance, and you know what? I much prefer pigments for my colored bases. I think I would have had better staying power, no fading, and it would have had more *pop* -- I will definitely be opting for pigments in the future,...

Look – Blue Zone Eyeshadow Duo Periwinkle and Lavender

As promised, I got un-lazy and actually did some REAL makeup. After using the Blue Zone eyeshadow duo, I doubt I'll be getting any more of the duos. I'm not particularly in love with this one - I think I'd be better off branching off and finding a lavender from another brand. :(

You will need the...

Looks – Still Noticeable, but Somewhat Subtle Purples

The air tour was a really great once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing, because you really do get to see some amazing sights that aren't easily seen by car. Unfortunately, I spent most of the tour motion sick, LOL. I kept my eyes open and still watched, but I don't think I'd do it again, just because I...

Looks – Green, Purple, and Pink — Really, who knew?

Mellan update: yesterday, he spent the day at the vet so they could monitor him and take chest x-rays. When we picked him up yesterday afternoon, the vet showed us the x-rays, and he said that he didn't see anything that stood out to him as abnormal. Today, our vet spoke with some specialists,...

Looks – Wide Open Peepers with Purple Pop

You know, I had a real struggle trying to figure out the right lips for this look! I loved the eyes, though. I actually did the cheeks first, then the eyes, and left the lips for last (which is usual for me). I still wasn't convinced this was the right lip combo, but I was at a loss as to what...
