NYX sultry purples.. yes, purple.... again

yeaahhhh, I like purple ok?? :)

Today I was wearing my favorite teal cardigan on top of a black tank paired with my new pencil skirt that my mom and I made the other day.  The skirt is a lovely charcoal grey, with teal and white pinstripes in it.  I have tons of the fabric left, so I have to figure out some other things to do with it! The temperature barely got above 10 degrees today, and it was snowing, yet I still decided a skirt was a wise choice.  Anyway, whenever I wear teal, I love pairing it with purple shadows.  Purple and Teal are awesome.

This look was deeper in real life, this is a combo I used to go to regularly but havn't worn for a while.

What I used:
Bare Necessity cream shadow as base
NYX Barely There on inner corners and brow (off white with golden sheen)
NYX Daffodil on rest of lid, blended to just above crease (satin finish midtone warmish purple)
NYX Deep Purple Outer corners into crease (Pruney deep purple with some sheen, this is the older formula of Deep Purple, the new one is more blackened)
NYX Black to deepen outer corners (matte black)
Ben Nye Cake liner in black applied with aromaleigh sealant
CG lashblast

Cheeks are Aromaleigh Dolly
Foundation is MAC MSF natural in light/medium
Lips are Rimmel Celeb (edit... airy fairy, not celeb!!)


  1. I love the lid shade, really pretty.

  2. You look beautiful. I love purples too and can't get enough...
