Purple People Eater: CSUS Palette Look #2

I have decided to name all of these off of songs that I know and love ... even more of a challenge :D

LOVE these! The darker purple is the colour that drew me to this palette in all of these pictures, and now I know why. I also have to comment on the shadows themselves ... we often think of these types of palettes as cheap and poorly made. I have to say that that is NOT the case with this one. I do not have to build the colours at all and they are as true after a day or work as they were when I first put them on the morning. Blending is effortless with these as well ... I am truly truly impressed with this.

All brushes are MAC unless otherwise stated. Enjoy!

basic face routine
Moon River mineralize blush duo; used 190 foundation brush (thanks for the tip Katie!)

And the bag & scarf that I got tonight.

  1. they look also blue on you but gorgeous still. did i miss this on majyk?

  2. I didn't post this one on Majyk girlie ... I feel bad posting looks over there because I rarely post in other people's looks (I am too busy on other parts of the forum ... bad excuse I know!). I don't expect them to comment on mine if I am not returning the favor.


Please be nice (that doesn't mean you have to like the look ... just be nice about not liking it!) ... no one likes a troll ;)
