For Day 3 of Mineral Madness, where I force myself to use my mineral eyeshadows, I have here a fairly purple look anchored on the very beautiful shimmery lilac by bareMinerals called Hyacinth. Not wanting to take away from the general prettiness of this color, I just used Satin Plum, also from bareMinerals. It is a fairly matte color so I used it in the outer corner of the eye, as well as on the outer crease.
I added an eye kohl to my lower lash line, too. It’s MAC’s Prunella.
I like it, though I feel like I should have used a deeper neutral like a dark brown instead of another purple. As it is, this has a very 90s feel to it; I can’t put my finger on it, but it may be the general cool lightness of the shadow paired with a milky lip, which makes me think of the frosted lipsticks of the past.
I could just be making all of that up, though.
(‘Scuse the spots, I didn’t feel like wearing foundation today.)
So pretty! The colours really suit your skin!
Thanks, Nat! 🙂
Love the subtle smokiness of it, which becomes more obvious when the eyes are closed. The blending with the lighter lilac is just superb!
I love how blendable these are! Quite obvious here, no?
Thank you! 🙂
Hee 😀 ❤
It’s not bad at all! Maybe the lip is a little bit of a mismatch but the eyes are really nice as a romantic take on smokey eyes. I, on the other hand, can’t work my way around lilacs, plums and purples. I really don’t know what textures and complimenting colors to use, plus how to make it work with the rest of my face. ARG!
Maybe you should pair a purple shadow with neutrals! 🙂 I love anything!
I love how adventurous you’re getting with the eye looks (especially this and the last one), and you look great in purple eyeshadow. More Mineral Madness!
Woohoo! I see you have found yourself a few pots! Haha. Thank ya, I love playing with makeup. Is such a girly preoccupation but it gives me such happies.
Excuse the spots? With such glowy skin? You’re kidding right!! ;D
Ahahaha aww, thank you. 🙂
You have a lovely radiant skin 🙂
Aw, thank you so much. 🙂
