FOTD: Purple and Blue Eyeshadow!

Hey Guys!

Guess what?! I actually wore coloured eyeshadow for once...and not just as a liner either. I threw this look together quick on Sunday because I had to run out of the house and do some errands...I really like how it turned out! The pictures don't do it justice, but blue and purple make my green eyes POP! I haven't had a chance to use some of my coloured MAC eyeshadows because, frankly, they scare me, but I think I will be taking more chances now that I know I can pull it off. I like how it wasn't TOO dark and still felt daytime appropriate. Hope you enjoy!

  7. Love it!!! I feel the same way about my colored e/s. Ive been debating whether to swap away my freshwater, deep truth, any greens and purples.. I just dont wear them. Not sure if they are all worth keeping just to use like once a year..

    I was so close to buying that coat - I tried it on and loved it, but ended up purchasing something warmer bc the material of it was so thin. I wish I would of got it anyway :(

    The WW shirt is cute..

  16. A great way to make colors more wearable for during the day! I love the idea of toned down blues, purples, and greens to add interest!

  17. Thank you for your wonderful comments/complements everyone! <3 Love you guys

    @Jen - I will...too many neutral posts lately! I think I want to do a strictly purple one next.

    @Natalie - The coat is cute, but has been a pain in the ass. The buttons keep falling off and I have to sew them on. I've never had a problem with the quality of F21 clothing, but this coat has been a hassle. I'm glad they give extra buttons when you buy it because I've needed both!

    @JennySue - I ordered the t-shirt off MAC! :)

  18. You look like a raven beauty! Really like how your eyes look in these colors. I think I have most of them but don't find myself grabbing them as often as I probably should. Maybe I will be inspired to:)
