Lilac

If there is one color that I love to wear year round, it would be lilac.  It's beautiful with similar shades; violets and purples, but it is also dazzling with earth tones.  Lilac is also extremely stunning on a variety of skin tones :-)

So for this week's look, I couldn't resist playing with one of my most favorite colors!


This look was created using my Coastal Scents Winterberry Palette.  It has my most favorite shade of lilac in it (bottom row) and some fantastic shades that compliment it perfectly.  


Also for this look, I grabbed an AMAZING pair of bold Elise (#456) lashes from Madame Madeline.  They are some of my absolute favorites.  I love the sweep and the angle of them!

Very dramatic and romantic!





♥ Blush used was from the Lauren Luke Vintage Glams Palette
♥ Lipstick was Nyx Round Lipstick in Perfect and Bare Escentuals Buxom gloss in Lola.
























Do you have a favorite year round color? :-)


Thank you for stopping by! You are all the best, and I thank you so much for your comments and interest in my makeup addiction ;-)

I hope you have an awesome day!
xoxo,
Colleen

    It's not face makeup, but despite the season I love China Glaze's Flip Flop Fantasy and I'll wear it any time of year, haha. (:
