I am liking the “Face of the Day” posts lately. If you’ve followed me on Instagram, then you would know that I love experimenting with different eyeshadow looks (all day) everyday! Another reason too is because I have a thousand and one palettes that I want to use up! I don’t want them to rot and be put to waste. I don’t want to sell them either because I always have a problem letting go. Hahaha!
Anyway, today’s FOTD, from the title itself, is all about purple. The star of the show is the L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow in Perpetual Purple. If only I can get all the shades from this line because they are fantastic! I have three shades so far. The other two shades that I equally love are Blinged and Brilliant and Endless Sea. I should do FOTDs using these two soon! Below are the swatches.
I always start with an eye primer and a base eyeshadow powder that is close to my skin. Next, I blend a brown/warm eyeshadow shade over my crease using the Laguna bronzer from the Nars The Happening Palette. To deepen it more, I used the bronzer shade from the Flower Beauty Blush Bronzer Duo. For the eyelid, I initially used the purple shade from the Nars The Happening Palette but I didn’t like the pigmentation so I took my L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow in Perpetual Purple and boom! my eyelids were colorful and vibrant as I want them to be.
To deepen the outer parts of my eyelids, and lower lash line, I used the dark brown shade from the Nars palette. The eyeliner I used was the Laura Mercier Creme Eye Liner in Noir. (You need this gel eye liner!) For mascara, I used the Clinique High Impact Mascara in Black. (Another favorite!). I am using the Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade in Chocolate for my strong brows, by the way. (Too overdone! Hehe!)
The blusher I used is from the Nars Guy Bourdin One Night Stand Cheek Palette called Goulue with Laguna bronzer all over my face. For my lips, I used the Happy Skin Lip and Cheek Mousse in The Morning After.
Here’s the final look!
Hope you liked today’s look! I have a more wearable and “natural” look for you next time using fewer products!
Have a great weekend!
