Softer Gradient Purples


Ive been getting a lot of use out of my 88 matte palette lately... it had gone long ignored until recently.  I love having all the shadows spread out before me in one easy to access place.  Here is a simple look using a matte white and some purples from the palette.... as well as a pop of yellow on the inner corners.  I think this would have looked really nice with some demi falsies, but I was too lazy to put them on :)

NYX Jumbo Pencil in milk (applied lightly all over lid)
88 Matte palette- white, yellow,  medium purple and deep purple
Ben Nye Cake liner
Cover Girl Lash Blast Volume

Cheeks are Milani Luminous (a close dupe for Coralista!)
Lips are OCC lip tar in memento ( i think- name has been rubbed off)

ACK!  Photos look a bit washed out :(  Thanks for looking all!


  1. My matte palette is totally being neglected. I just don't seem to know how to use mattes very well.
    Love this soft purple look on you. :-)

  2. For some reason the 88 matte palette never appealed to me.

  3. Really want some more mattes - Love this on you. x

  4. This is SO pretty :3 'light and airy' comes to mind.

  5. This is beautiful :) You have to try the new Morgana mattes, you'll love them.

  6. This is such a beautiful and fresh look! I love the gradient.

  7. Gorgeous as ever, Nina!

  8. thanks so much sweet ladies!!! :)

  9. I neglect so much my 88 palette...You make me want to grab it for tomorrow ! How do you compare Luminous to Nars Orgasm (if you have both). I am probably the only one looking weird in NArs so if it's the same kind of shade, I'll skip it...but on you it looks so healthy !

    Thank you for welcoming me back, you are a sweetheart !

  10. thanks Caro!!! I don't have Nars Orgasm so I can't say if it is a match or not.... but it ilovely and applies really well ;)
