January 2011 Series: 19th

Orange & purple look.

Orange is a colour that I was too afraid to try before, but I was surprised to learn that orange actually suits my skin tone & I can wear it by toning it down. I recently paired orange with a brown for a fairly neutral look & in that look, I had applied the orange lightly (view that look here). This time, I chose to experiment with orange again, but in a brighter look so I ended up using purple with it. This time I didn't apply the orange lightly either.

Today I thought I'd just edit pictures (crop, watermark, etc. - not colour adjustments) instead of spending time narrowing my selection, so that you can see how lighting & the use of flash can make a huge difference.

Products Used:
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion [base]
  • 120 palette (1st edition): orange [entire lid + inner half of lower lashline]-H6, purple [outer V + crease + outer half of lower lashline]-S3
  • MAC eyeshadow in Mylar [applied very lightly as the highlight + in the tearduct area]
  • Annabelle Smudgeliner in Purple Storm [upper lashline + waterline (wore off the waterline by the time I came home & took pictures at night)]
  • MAC PlushLash mascara in Plush Black

I like how bold you are with your color combinations. I would never have thought of blending these two colors.
