FOTD | La-la-lavender

Happy hump day! We're so close to the weekend I can almost taste it! I have a quick FOTD post to share with you all. I took the theme of lavender/purple and just ran with it. This is actually a look I wore last thursday to class. I rediscovered an Urban Decay eyeshadow that I just lusted after for the longest time, bought it (last year!) and never touched again. It's Urban Decay's Fishnet eyeshadow, a purply-pink duo chrome eyeshadow that's very reminiscent of MAC's Star N' Rockets. I put this all over my lid and then just blended out the edges a bit with a clean fluffy brush, my Sigma E40 Tapered Blending. I was going to add a neutral blending color but thought that would darken the purple a bit. Then I lined my upper and lower lash lines with Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes in 0L. It was a late class and I was feeling so lazy so that was as much definition to my eye that I could manage, LOL. I can't quite remember what mascara I used but it was probably the last little bit of my Maybelline The Falsies Volum Express! For the cheeks I popped on some Hervana Blush by Benefit. I know purple isn't a color you think of when you think 'natural makeup' but everything was so soft looking that I didn't want to overpower the rest of my face. Last but not least I grabbed my MAC Pink Popcorn lipstick (it was limited edition, I forget from which collection :/). Pink Popcorn is a pinky lavender color that looks a lot more wearable than it sounds and is AWESOME to wear in the spring (bring on pastel overload ;) )!

What was your FOTD? :)

  4. You are so pretty! I always find colours a bit difficult, sometimes. Only because it is so easy to over do it and look childish. This looks amazing though :) www.beautybook13.blogspot.co.uk - maybe you could check my giveaway out when you have a minute :D

    1. Awh thanks :) I agree with you there! I can manage one sort of subdued color on the lid, but I've never ventured to more than one color!

  13. I love purple so much, this looks very cute on you! I have to be very careful with purple since most shades tend to have carmine in them, and I have allergies x

    1. Thank you very much! Oh man, I wanted to see if maybe this shade of purple didn't have that and Urban Decay says it might :/ Is it with all colors or just purple ones?
