Look: Showers of Purple

I did this look using shadows from the MAC collection that had Purple Shower in it. Also, I have to add that I love the SMH shadows (Stars Makeup Haven) that I first found on KarlaSugar’s blog. She and I actually did a swap – she gave me her left over shadows from swatching and I gave her a Dior Jazz palette :-) AWESOME trade for me! I put some green into this because I love the way green and purple look mixed together! Happy New Years Eve!

Look: Bright…Like Sunshine!

This was a look I did using NARS Mekong and Galapogos…and it disturbs me that I cannot find my Mekong after the move :-( I’ll keep looking for it though. With all of the overcast spitting of rain we’ve been having, it’s nice to do a post that reminds me of the SoCal sunshine!
