FOTD Friday: Work Place Purple

| September 4, 2009 | 13 Comments

Happy happy Friday, my darlings! Labor Day is coming up and I’ve got a pretty big weekend planned. Woo! I’m exciiiited. Stay tuned for photos of all of the happ’ns.

Soooo, lately I’ve been feeling a little uninspired with eye make-up. Not that I have the time to play around with it anyway. When getting ready for work, I have a good 10 minutes to throw together a workplace appropriate look. Most days it works. But other days the ‘creative’ in me seeps out and wants to come up with new looks.

I was in a “purple” mood so I pulled out MAC’s Vibrant Grape.

I freakin’ LOVE this color. It has always been one of my favorite purples. But it was a little too dominating on the lids.

See what I mean….


I mean, I could bang it out and make it nice smokey eye but come ooooon, I can’t wear a smokey purple eye to work.

Check out what I came up with. And don’t be laughin’ at my “needs to be threaded brows”. I got them done shortly after this FOTD. Ha!

FACE:
MAC Studio Finish concealer in NW45
Rimmel Natural Bronzer

EYES:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance

MAC Ochre Style e/s
MAC Vibrant Grape e/s
Make Up For Ever #92 e/s
NARS Albatross highlighter
Lancome Oscillation mascara
LIPS:
MAC lipliner in Nightmoth
Inglot lipstick in #65
Kissable Couture’s Rose Gardenia

And could it be? My skin is acting right for once. Of course as you read this, I have a good 12 pimples or so. They came out of nowhere I tell ya.

Whatcha think? Is it possible to make purples professional?

Enough P’s for ya?

Haaa!!! Happy weeeekeeeend!


Stay beautiful,

    I love the way you took that vibrant color and made it work-appropriate! I love to wear bright colors (I'm learning how to work with them, mostly through experimenting with UD 24/7 liners), and making them a little more muted is high on my list of desires. You've given me some ideas to try, thank you!

    This is so pretty! You rock the purple!

    That's how I have started wearing my vibrant colors for daytime, with a subtle gold or tan on the lid and the vibrant color as an accent type of shade… great solution!

  9. Danielle says:

    I like that it's subtle but you can still see the purple.
