Smokey Purple look using Stars Makeup Haven

Well I feel much better today but I am still coughing my head off. I have been coughing so much that my abs are sore! Holy cow! Coughing is worse than any pilates or core training I've ever done...and I do a lot! I have been feeling down about not working out too. It's something I have been doing for 12+ years about 4-6 times a week, every week. So whenever I'm not able to work out, I feel mentally and physically blah. So I can't wait to get this cold behind me so I can bust my bum on the stepper! Pain is gewd!
Anyway, I wanted to do a smokey look and almost did green but decided on purple instead.  I was tempted to put green on the lower lash line, but stuck with all purple since I rarely ever use just one colour. SMH came out with more colours so I know I will have to get a 3rd palette at some point. I've been very good with putting money in my savings account the past couple months so I won't buy another palette until I have extra spending money. I refuse to dip into my savings to buy makeup...I have more self control than that. Ha!
And again, all photos are natural lighting, no flash.

  1. Very pretty. I'm such a purple fiend :) All those colors look amazing.

  2. You've got to love purple. Looks gorgeous! I look ridiculous in brown lip shades, but really nice on you!

    Any chance of a fitness-type post in the future? I need to get into doing more exercise so I'd be really interested, for one.

  3. Wow, this is gorgeous. Just shows that it's entirely possible stick to one colour and still produce something interesting. Purple really suits you :)

  4. Beautiful look and yum peppermint face cream.
    The lip colour looks amazing with those purples! x

  5. JNSAHBDYFEYEFOJOKEF <---- noise I just made in my head when I saw this look. I LOVE IT! :D This is one of my favorite looks I have ever seen. I love purples, and it is absolutely perfect. Sooooo pretty!

  6. Oh yeah, and I'm glad you feel better!

  7. Um so all those shades of purple are stunning, jsyk.

    I wish I had as much self-control as you when it comes to buying makeup :P

  8. Your eyes lok stunning! I'm not a fan of the lip colour but you pull it off.

  9. Phyrra,
    Purple makes me drool! Glad you like it.

    Oh yes! I think everyone loves purple! I used to not like this type of lip colour but I do now and I usually get compliments when I wear it.

    Sure! What kind of fitness stuff would you like to hear about? Lemme know!

    True! It certainly possible but it's nice to use different shades of the same colour. Adds more depth than just using one. Thanks!


    Aw, thank you. I agree they do go very well together. And the face cream is awesome. I just ordered more!

    thank you!

    Hurray for noises in our heads! I'm really glad you like it. Purple is such a rich, yummy colour. I'm surprised it took me this long to do a look like this!
    Me too. I felt so drained and horrible for long enough. It's time to get well!

    Oh they are! I love them! Hee hee. I'm a money hoarder...not sure why but I tend to save money for no reason. I guess it's all for emergencies as you never know what could happen. I also tend to feel guilty if I spend a lot of money on something I don't need. I suppose that is a good thing. :-)

    Thank you! It's a more natural lip colour and it seems to go well with wearing purples and blues. :-)

  10. The Eye Look is amazing, i love the colour :-)

  11. I love purpleª and this look is so pretty!! You look very pretty with it!
