Redish Purples are the Prettiest

Hey girlies!

This is yet another simple application technique, using  a shimery merlot purple with red undertones. In pictures it looks bright pink, but I assure you it IS purple.
On the lid I have a frosty grey and then a matte grey-black color to darken the corner. Close-ups look a bit crazy, but check more pictures below to get a better idea of what it looked like as a whole.




Sweetscent Angleface Ivory foundation as my highlight color.

On my face I'm wearing Lily Lolo foundation, it's a mix of Lily Lolo Translucent Silk setting powder, Lily Lolo foundation in Blondie and Lily Lolo concealer in PeepO


For a change, I matched my eyebrows to my hair because it was going to be seen
in public at daylight. For taking pictures I always use a cooled tone medium grey
as it looks the least fake with flash photography.

The reason why I tend to go for the same techinque over and over is that I have small hooded eyes. And this works out the best for me so yeah, that's why :D
apart from that; I have very senstive eyes so if there is any fall out it will tear me up. If I bring shadow to my outer corner, it will make my eyes tear as well. I always rush to take pictures before I cry out all my sorrow :P

Foiling is the only thing that helps, though.
Doesn't matter, in most cases you don't even see my make-up as it is covered by
my glasses.


So what is your make-up nightmare? Is there anything you can't wear?

My make up nightmare is that I can't do make up! I'm pretty much hopeless. And as you mentioned I have small (and weird) eyes AND glasses, too, so what's the point anyway? :)

@Poppy
=) I totally NEVER said you had weird eyes.
And the point of make-up is to bring attention to one's eyes. You can make it so that eyes are the first thing people notice.

And make-up makes them look heaps bigger. And it's fun <3 <3

I really like this combo :) Never would have thought of it.
My makeup nightmare is that one day my already hooded lids will sag even more ><

Love this look! These colors look great together! I really like how your lower lashline turned out!

@The Peach

Thanks!

So pretty! I looove your eye color, it's so lovely <3 I know what you mean about tearing up, that happens to me too! I can't wear anything on my waterline because my tears wash it all away in 2 seconds lol. xD And my eyes are different shapes so applying liner and making it look symmetrical is pretty much impossible. x3
I hate doing nice eye makeup and then having to wear my glasses. :( They're for distance vision so I don't have to wear them all the time, but still..

@Emily� ??? �???�
Haha, my eyes are symetry challenged too. And my eyesight is so bad I need to wear glasses all the time.


Ughhh, the waterline, don't get me started on that. =)
So hard to find comfortable make-up thse days.

Čudovita izbira barv in MU <3, če bom še dolgo spremljala tvoj blog, bom verjetno še sama začela uporabljati MU, pa čeprav zdaj verjetno še maskare ne znam uporabiti *blush*

LOL @ you crying out all your sorrow XD

Even though the crease colour is actually purple, I really like the pink/silver combo that shows up on my screen! :D love the light and bright inner corner too

@SilhouetteScreams
hehe, it's true, my eyes don't like to be made up sometimes :(

I think a bright pink would easily work just as well :)
