EOTD: Purple & pink


I had a chance to play with my makeup last weekend so here's an EOTD based on my favourite colours - purple and pink because they contrast and bring out the green of my eyes.  This makeup look is a bit of a throwback to the evening looks I used to do in my twenties, when it was all about bright colours and highlighting the centre of the lid.  The great thing is these kinds of looks have made a comeback (with the exception of electric blue mascara!):

Here are swatches of the colour palette I used:

L - R (swatched in daylight):
Anna Sui (pink 302), Chanel Interferentiels palette (white/blue duochrome),
MAC Shale & Satellite Dreams

For this look I applied:
  • Face of Australia primer (matte) blended over lids
  • Anna Sui - (302) on the inner half of the lid and blended across the crease
  • MAC - Shale on the outer half of the lid and blended in an outer V
  • Chanel -  white/blue duochrome shade blended over the centre of the lid
  • MAC -  Powerpoint eye pencil (Bordeauxline) on the upper lash line
  • MAC  - Satellite Dreams blended along lower lashline
  • Rimmel - Volume Flash x 10 mascara (black) on upper lashes only

Please let me know in the comments if you like these kinds of posts.  If you do, I'll try and post EOTD's more often.

Until next time.
