A Passion for Purple


In honor of my dearest TCU Horned Frogs playing in the College World Series, I thought a good ‘ole monochromatic Purple look was in order. Purple is one of my favorite colors and one of the few that lend itself to a full face monochrome look. I mean, my actual favorite color is green but I don’t see the green blush trend catching on anytime soon! This look was also very easy to achieve using the L’Oreal Infallible Shadow in Burst into Bloom for a one color look. The Infallible shadows have so much dimension and sparkle that a lot of the time, all you need is one shade. Here is the finished look and the products used to achieve it…and GO FROGS!

You all know that I’ve raved about the Color Tattoos. I just love them to pieces. This eye look features two of my fave pink tones together: Pomegranate Punk and Inked in Pink. I love a good Pink Eye….of the non-contagious variety, of course!

I concentrated the dark Pomegranate Punk on my lid and then blended the lighter Inked in Pink up into the crease for a sort of ombre’ effect. To blend into the browbone, I used Loreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Iced Latte. The Infallible Shadows are another product that I love to bits. They are like a pressed pigment almost. The color payoff is amazing and my only problem is that I need more of them! 🙂 A good winged liquid liner added some pizazz. On the bottom lash line I used the Pomegranate Punk on the outer edge of the lid and faded it into the Inked in Pink. I lined my waterline in black and put a dab of the Iced Latte in the inner corners to brighten.
