Purple and Brown Eye Tutorial


Here is the requested tutorial for my most favorite eye look! I'm obsessed with this eye look, I'm not sure why. I just love mixing neutrals with bright colors to make the looks more wearable.

Here's the original blog post

MAC So Chaud, Sail La Vie, Neon Orange, Good To Go lipstick comparion swatches



Review: I was highly disappointed in the colors of the pro longwear lip pencils. Saunter and Shore Leave are way too light to be useful for anyone! Throw me a line is similar to Kiss Me Quick pro longwear lip pencil.

The lipsticks are lovely, although Salute is a weird color that definitely doesn't work well for me with the makeup I had on.

I tried all the lip products on to show you how ridiculous some of them look, and I'm not even that dark! I'm an nc25.

I was wearing Fast Fleet Blush in all of the photos, along with Old gold pigment and Lorac Front Of The Line Pro Liner
