Oh purple, how I love thee. Orange..not so much.

So here is a look that I've tried and I think really works. In a previous post I was informed that orange is the color I should really try to wear to make my eyes pop, but I felt like my hair, which is copper gold, does that enough for my eyes for now and I can wear other colors that compliment me. I will post a picture where I am wearing orange, but I don't think I like it too much. Maybe I need to pair it with another color. I'm not sure.

(The purple eye shadow is from e.l.f.'s Studio 32-Piece Eyeshadow Palette - I really love this Spring palette! The cream eye liner is also from e.l.f. and I am wearing my Fresh - Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 )
I think the purple works well and even if it doesn't bring out my eyes entirely, it still compliments my skin.

The look I "should" wear more often..

Maybe I need to add more eye liner or something to define my eyes. I feel like I look dead without some kind of liner. I also didn't have any lip color on at this time, which might have helped. I was going to the beach, but thought I'd wear a little makeup. I also never leave the house without putting on my Dr. Jart + - Waterfuse BB Cream or my e.l.f. Mineral Concealer, Foundation, and Blush (all SPF 15).
What do you all think?

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Try a slightly brighter orange and maybe mix it a little with gold to make it pop more.

    1. Thanks Kelly! I'll definitely try that :)
