Rockstar

I felt electric today, not hot like red, or cool like blue, but perfectly in between in an eccentric purple.  Spiritually alive and mysterious, purple evokes the queen within us.  No wonder Cleopatra had a strong liking to the color.

I turned right to my brand new 120 color Sedona Lace eyeshadow palette and started swatching purples until I landed on two that I just had to blend atop my lid and create a super purple rockstar smokey eye.

This was my first time trying the Sedona Lace palette and it's marvelous.  The color payoff is great and the color choices are so wonderful.  The purple I chose was a purple to similar to MAC "Stars & Rocket's" but deeper in payoff since the MAC eyeshadow is pretty sheer in comparison.  The black also worked great as a blender to create the smokey eye, and I had plenty of other purples to blend in to the middle to give a very neat gradient.  I chose to use two different colors as a highlight, simply because I did have the option to, and to brighten up and tone down the metallic of the usual silver highlight.



No flash...the Lavender Whip lipstick really shows.

Matchy matchy nails

  5. wow! you are not just beautiful but SO talented girl. And I'm not just talking about the makeup but the awesome pictures. I know for sure that having a Nikon D90 doesn't mean that all your pics should be this professional (I know one person that has this camera and his pictures are not great) so I can see your talent in your pics ;)
