Beauty Look of the Day: A Perfect Purple Afternoon

Pink Lipstick

Since the New Year started I’ve been super motivated (and super busy!) and my creative muse has been working overtime!  I’ve already found a way to expand the fashion section of this site and I wanted to do something new on the beauty side, besides the reviews.  So I thought of doing an OOTD with a beauty twist.

Today’s look is from last week’s outfit.  I haven’t done my eyes up in awhile and purple is one of my favorite eyeshadow colors to wear.

Purple Eyeshadow


  • light pink shadow on the lids (e.l.f)
  • purple shadow on the crease blending into the browbone (e.l.f)
  • Dark purple shadow on the outer crease and corners (Hard Candy)
  • Black liner from Neutrogena
  • Black mascara from Buxom


  • Cream Blush in Pink Melon  (Avon)
  • Lipstick in Rosewine (Avon)
  • Light Pink gloss in the middle for a little shine (Covergirl)

Bantu Knot Out

I tried out a new style with my hair, the unusually cold weather we’ve been having down hair making air drying my hair impossible.  So I went with what is called a two strand twist bantu knot out  (I  know it’s a mouthful!)  The night before, I blew out my hair and made individual twists using Shea Moisture’s Curling Smoothie and twisted them into little pinwheels or bantu knots.  I took them down the next morning and I liked how they came out.  Blow drying my hair first gave me the volume I needed and the bantu knots curled my ends with the need for rollers (gotta love that!)
