It’s Friiiiiday! And I’m off to Atlanta, shawty. Yes, your Head Newb is quit excited but I couldn’t leave without droppin’ this week’s FOTD Friday. What was my inspiration?
Well, first….tell me what these 3 beautiful ladies have in common:
If you guessed “purples on the lids” then shoot me an email because I will be mailing you a gold star! I reallllllly don’t like the color purple. Dark and deep royal purple, I can deal with. But lavenders pretty much make me want want to throw up. Excuse the dramatics. But it is that serious. My Mommy, the herbalist’s, favorite color is purple and I’m thinking I saw an over-abundance of it as a kid….hence why I loathe it tremendously. But I tried a little somethin’ somethin’. Here’s what I used:
Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance primer
Stila’s Orchid e/s duo (light purple=inner darker purple=outer)
MAC’s Satellite Dreams e/s (crease)
Clinique’s Almost peach e/s (highlight)
Stila’s Major Lash mascara
Clinique’s Eggplant liner
Maybelline’s Unstoppable Eyeliner
Stila’s Berry Flash Color Push-up
Bobbi Brown’s Brownie Shimmerbrick
CoverGirl AmazeMint in Plum Crazy (loves it!)
Here’s what I came up with…
I’m lookin’ too happy, uh? HA! And my cheeks are crazy shiny. The verdict: still not diggin’ lighter purples on the lids much. But I feel confident knowing that darker skinned women CAN wear them beautifully. But would I on a regular? Naaaaaa.
Tell me what you think about light purples in general? A fan? A loather? Never tried?
Thank you soooo much for your support with my DentaBurst feature. It’s one thing for yall to stroll though to support me on Clumps but to see you show me love on other sites is just…a phenomenal feeling. *tears*
Don’t forget! My Stila lipstick contest is still running until Wednesday. Snap to it, chicas! And have a wonderful weekend!!!
