Me love me purples! =]  I love how it brings out my brown eyes.

I tried something new this time.  For the outer corner, I decided to try to mix two colours together – I used MAC’s Parfait Amour & Nocturnelle together.    Parfait Amour has a blue undertone to it, and together with Nocturnelle, it turned out beautifully! =]

For the inner half of my lid, I used Beautiful Iris (also by MAC)

Foundation: Smashbox Halo Powder – Light

Blush – NARS Oasis

Lips:

I kept the kips more natural looking because the eyes are a bit more dramatic.  I used:  Gingerroot lip liner, High Tea l/s & Fluorabundance lipglass (all MAC).

Instead of just lining the top lashes and the outer half of my lower lashes, I rimmed my entire eye this time to give it that more dramatic effect.

The finished look:
