FOTD: Purple & Silver

Wow! Based on the poll you ladies want more makeup for Christmas! Hehe I do too although I know I don’t need more!

I tried a look a few days ago I wanted to bust out my Makeup Forever eyeshadow #009 (purple) and pair it with several colors from the Silver Family.

I was actually quite pleased the way it turned out simply because I didn’t think it would turn out how I envisioned it in my little head…

What I used:

Face:

– Sephora Makeup Base
– Silk Naturals Foundation

Cheeks:

– MAC Blush in “Dollymix”
– MAC Beauty Powder in “Soft Flame”

Eyes:

– Makeup Forever eyeshadow #009 (inner corner and part of the eyelid)
– MAC e/s in “Cumulus” on the middle of the lid
– MAC Silver Pigment in the middle of the lid (over cumulus e/s)
– MAC e/s in “Silver Ring” on the outer-V and contour
– Everyday Minerals in “Bundle Up” as highlight
– MMBB “Highlights” as highlight
– Indelible Gel Eyeliner in “Black Out”
– Laura Mercier Mascara

Lips:
– MAC l/s in “Scanty”

YOu make it look so lovely!<BR/><BR/>Also, I’ve left comments on older posts and I was wondering if you still check and respond to those?

    Hi Vanessa! <BR/><BR/>You look gorgeous!! I totally love this look! I have a couple of purple e/s from MAC but I agree that they’re not as pigmented as this one from MUFE.<BR/><BR/>Claudia

    Hi gorgeous!<BR/><BR/>Lovely FoTD, makes me want to go play with some of my new eyeshadows even though it’s actually time for me to wash up and go to bed! <BR/>I’ve been trying to avoid looking stupid, but since I can’t seem to figure it out I have to ask.. What does "e/s" mean? HAhahahaha….. Now when I wrote it I realized it can’t be anything else but eyeshadow, right? :p <BR/><BR/>Take care!

    Love it! I have Cumulus too, and have been wanting to use it. Maybe I’ll try this when I’m feeling gutsy! :)

    wow! who would’ve thought of putting the lighter color in the middle of the lid instead of using it on the inner lid! Sheer genius!! LOVE IT! :)
