The Makeup Look: Vivid Purple and Periwinkle

Boy do I miss playing with colors! My skin is slowly going back to normal and now I get a chance to play with more vibrant shades. What will I do without makeup? If you know how to use them or more precisely, how to remove them properly... the possibilities are endless.

I'm happy that no matter what state my skin is, I get to play around with them. Which reminds me that I've got to tell you about my favorite makeup removers soon! 

But for now, let's celebrate with colors. Say hello again to my uber wonderful Beauty Pro Cosmetics Palette, Crazy Colours. Doesn't it remind you of your watercolors back in grade school? I love this palette so much, I wish I can use it everyday.

This time, Periwinkle and Vivid Purple caught my attention. I remember hogging these two shades from everybody's crayola boxes when I was younger.

Here's the look I came up with. :)

Pretty, noh? :)

I amplified the purple look with the Makeup Forever Aqua Liner in Diamond Black Purple and lined my lower line with K-Palette Eyeliner Black. Amped up my lashes with Revlon 3D Volume Mascara

Pink cheeks and lips pairs well with purple so play with these shades to give harmony to your look. :)
I used a generic pink blush from one of China-made palette while the lipstick are from Bobbi Brown Hi-Shine Colleciton.

Do you love purple makeup look? I hope it doesn't remind you too much of Barney, though. :) LOL!

I did try to make waves with my hair like Jennifer's but my hair was still too wet... and seriously. I think my hair is hopeless. may i should get myself a Carusso Professional Steam Hair Roller! So of course, I put my hair up again. I like the clean feel of it.

I really like the feel of this look. I wore it when I went out for dinner with myself and I notice that it did grab attention from onlookers. The striking smoked out periwinkle and peach really complimented the soft pink lips.

And though I still need to brush up on my false lashes application, I still tried and I'm quite content with how this look ended up.I love how this whole look balanced out.

This look is really great for New year's Eve party since your eyes are on full party mode but you don't need to worry about your lips smearing during those beso-beso moments and of course, the that midnight kiss with the love of your life. Pink lips are easy to touch up and if you're too lazy, just keep a clear gloss in your person at all times for quick retouch.

Just a a day before 2012! Are you excited? I am but then, I'm also a little bit scared. :)
