Makeup Inspiration: Purples and Pinks

I love wearing soft colors on my eyes. I think they make a really bold statement without being loud, difficult to create, or annoying to wear! Recently, pinks and purples have been taking residence on my eyelids. I have so many pretty pastel palettes that look great all over the lids for a  simple wash of color, but my favorite has to be the Nars Narsissist Danger Control eyeshadow palette. These are really cool pastel holographic shadows, some being amazing duochromes and some having galaxy-inspired glitter glows. Here’s a look I created using some of the shadows in the palette along with some others!

Desert-Inspired Khaki Green Makeup Look

Khaki and olive green tones are so flattering on a spread of complexions. If you’re like me and love a good neutral look, the green-based neutral color can really add a twist to an otherwise boring color palette. Summer is usually the time when most break out the bright colors, but I was in the mood to try something a little different. The desert’s rich, deep colors and gritty texture inspired me to pair a khaki smokey eye with muted plum lips and matte skin.  Continue reading “Desert-Inspired Khaki Green Makeup Look”
