Get the Look - Purple Fade for Amanda

Updated 03/05/2011 & 03/06/2011

This is strictly my own personal opinion about the matter. All material uncovered was done through a public google internet search with a few different keyword entries.

Due to information uncovered and revealed about this company, I cannot in good conscience or good faith recommend anyone support this reportedly handmade, organic small business. If information had been disclosed prior to discovery by the shop owner herself, I would have no problem with continuing to purchase. Regretfully, the scope of the lie and how many different people it could have potentially affected and hurt leaves me no other choice than to say this is not an honest company to do business with.

For information as to why, you can read more below:

Purple. A color that can be really great on the eyes... Yet, at the same time, a color that many ladies are apprehensive to play with or wear. Sure- there's a whole spectrum out there- from light lavender, to bright neon purple, to deep berry tones- and every kind of shade in between. The key is to jump in- be fearless!

I created this look as a request from Amanda on my Facebook Page wanting to know how to use purples in a subdued tone on the eyes. She's getting married, and wanted good ideas for purple tones on her eyes. Congratulations to you and your husband-to-be!

I'm happy to report that I came up with three different looks for this one. Of course- I totally forgot to take pictures of the not-so-subdued look before I went ahead and lightened it. [sighs] I blame it on my blonde roots. I seriously do have these moments I just totally and completely blank... And... Aye. At least I'm not as bad as a few months ago!

Ok, we're past that. I did the look a few different ways to show options. Yes, I broke out my wild and bright purple shade in Panic from Moi Minerals Cosmetics and on my eyes it went. The point? You can always tone down a color if it's too bright. You can lighten a color if it's too dark. Please don't think that the color in the jar or pan is what you're stuck with! There are so many options to play- blend the colors, mix in lighter or darker ones, blend blend blend, add another tone.... The possibilities are endless.

My ace up the sleeve with this look was a translucent, sparkling gray shadow Storm from Orglamix Cosmetics which is packed with plennnnnty of sparkles. Why gray? For one- it can be a light layer. Or pack it on for a thicker color. Or foil the color to wear it just as gray. Limitless options I tell you!

On my Face:
Too Faced Magic Wand Illuminating Foundation in London Fair. (I wanted more coverage today!)
PF Organics Mineral Foundation.

On my Eyes:

Orglamix Cosmetics Eye Shadow Colors in Orchid (very, very light purple), Storm (gray) and Vanilla Birthday Cake.
Magnetism Eye-Primer

Moi Minerals Cosmetics Eye Shadow Color in Panic!

Wet 'N Wild Gel Eyeliner in Black, MegaLength Mascara in Black, and Black & White Kohl Eyeliner
Nude Lip Pencil by Ulta
Sally Hansen Satin Effects Lip Gloss in Delightful

And that's all it took to bring this look together!
The video takes so long... You guessed it, because I tend to gab! It's really tough to talk and apply makeup... LOL!

Thanks for stopping by, and as always- be happy!
