FOTD: Purple and Fuchsia (using MUA!)

I had this idea in my head to do fuchsia eyes and fuchsia lips and when I attempted it, it didn't quite work. My eyeshadow wasn't really... fuchsia. I had it on in my June Favorites video (for The Makeup Heroes). Our AC wasn't working so the look creased; it also had glitter so it was a chunky mess.

My husband and I were going out with my godsister and her boyfriend to get thai for dinner, so I decided to take off my makeup and redo it... this is how it came out:

- MUFE HD in #120
- Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer in Light
- Maybelline SuperStay concealer in Cream
- Mac MSF Natural in Light Medium
- MUA eyeshadow in Shade 4 (used as blush and highlight)

- Too Faced Shadow Insurance
- MUA eyeshadow in Shade 4
- MUA eyeshadow in Shade 9
- MUA eyeshadow in Shade 10
- Ben Nye eyeshadow in Ice
- Physician's Formula gel liner (black from the original blue eyes set)
- Maybelline The Falsies mascara (Blackest Black)

- WetnWild Silk Finish Lipstick in Hot Paris Pink (unsure of the number)
- Darling Girl Cosmetics holo-gloss in Jar of Hearts

I also did my godsister's makeup for the night, in a bit of a hurry but in case you wanted to see how it came out. I used the WetnWild Comfort Zone palette, the blue/green duochrome, the bronzey brown and the golden highlight shade. I also used Prestige Total Intensity eyeliner in Slate (with the bluey green duochrome smudged over top), and on her cheeks was Hard Candy Living Doll blush. She did her face, and used bareMinerals Prime Time foundation primer, bareMinerals Original foundation in medium beige, bareMinerals bronzer in Warmth, and bareMinerals original mineral veil.

Last thing: I did my June Favorites for The Makeup Heroes if you're interested:


  1. I think it turned out beautifully for you and your god sister! :)

  3. Both looks are really pretty :)

  4. Both are really pretty! Love the lip color you used!!

  5. I loooove the purple shimmer/sheen in the crease and the lip colour is so pretty. And damn you, reminding me that I still need to pick up Lady Danger D: haha

  6. Lovelovelovelovelovelovelovelovelove! This is one of my favourite looks you've ever done, it's so *you*.

  7. Both looks are beautiful! I love your lips :)

  8. Oooooooh, I love it! Both looks are fantastic, but I love yours the best because I'm a sucker for purples (and pinks). The eyes are *amazing*! And the lip color....swoon. Definitely need to add Jar of Hearts to my wishlist.

  9. Lovely makeup! I really enjoy pink and purple tones on you!
