Makeup of the Day: August 21st, 2014


Today was all about the purples.

The By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock was my starting point.  I absolutely love the sparkly and sophisticated look it gives to the eyes with just a simple swipe.  (Check out my in depth review here.)  I placed Misty Rock all over the lid and along the lower lash line and blended it out with Limit from the Naked 3 Palette in the crease. Limit and Nooner are great transition shades from this palette which I reviewed as well.

To stay consistent with the purple theme I went with Sin blush from Nars. The dark purple color may seem intimidating for a blush shade, but it’s actually very wearable as I explain here.

Finally, Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Fig topped off the look with bold purple lips.




    1. Thanks! I would say if you are looking to splurge then go for it. It is definitely a luxurious product and you pay for the fancy feeling you get while applying it. Otherwise, I think you can achieve a similar look with less expensive products that are easier to find online. The new NARS eye shadows, for example, seem like they give a similar effect.


      1. Ohh okay well I might see how spendy I’m feeling next time I go makeup shopping haha but those nars shadows looked really pretty too, thanks for the recommendation! xx
