Smokey Gray/Silver & Purple Makeup look with Morgana Cryptoria

Wearing this cranberry red turtleneck with this look made me think about fashion "rules". One that I learned when I was young is that you shouldn't wear makeup to match your clothes as it can be too matchy and look washed out. I don't really follow makeup/trend/fashion rules except for some (shoes should match yo' belt) but I do understand the washed out thing. However, from time to time, something I'm wearing will inspire a makeup look, which will result in matchiness!
So do you wear makeup to match your clothes, or do you wear whatever you feel like? I think I'd be too stressed if I tried to match my makeup and clothes all the time. I should be glad I mostly wear black tho. It matches everything!

All Holos-Gleam is MUCH more sparkly in person!

I was being silly for the last 3 full face pics...
Who is this person?! Holy crap I look like the troll from Willow!

Umm...that's the best troll pic I could find. Can you see the resemblance? Please tell me someone knows this movie! I love Willow!

  1. I love your photos and you always amuse me when you make random faces, you remind me a lot of a friend of mine actually when you do that.
    Amazing make up as always.

  2. Beautiful!

    Also (and I mean this totally as a compliment) has anyone ever told you that you look like PJ Harvey circa 1995-1996?

  3. omg my siblings and I watched that movie allll the time growing up! Those trolls always scared the CRAP out of my sister and me lol >.<

    Pretty look, as always! I don't think it technically "matches" since the purpley color is kind of an accent; you have the silver and stuff in there too, so it "goes" but doesn't "match", ya know? ;3

  4. WILLOW = MY CHILDHOOD. I love that troll photo of you hahaha.

    Your lip colour is beautiful! I don't match my clothes to my outfit, because I pretty much just wear all black. >_> Occasionally I'll wear a bright tshirt if I legit can't find anything else to wear, and even then I'm just wary of wearing red with a green shirt in case someone pays me out saying Christmas came early. :P

  5. BWAHAHAHA! I loved scrolling down to your funny pictures! XD

    LOVE this combination and your lips look fantabulous in that color.

  6. hello! i recently discovered your blog! is amazing, keep going on this good job! you my check out mine, you`ll love it! if you follow, i`ll return the favor! tnx!

  7. wow..pretty...very nice eye makeup...hey why have you used this shocking pink lipstick on your is different from your top.

  8. I had never heard that rule before! I break it all the time...

  9. Haha! Willow! That made me laugh and no you don't look like that troll but that comment cracked me up! My kids and I will sometimes make the goat sound, "Wiilloowwww" like that old lady who turned into a goat would do, just to be goofy.

    I love Azalea Blue, so bright and pretty and I need to get more of her eyeshadows. I'm so poorage right now.

    Another pretty look- thank you!

  10. Gorgeous look! And yes, I loved Willow too!!

  11. I reckon there are waaay to many rules that we're s'posed to follow so I generally just do what I want and hope for the best. I mean if I was wearing a completely purple outfit then I'd probably avoid purple eyeshadow but that's about as strict as I get :)

    Love the pink lips! I'm so jealous cos my lips are really small and thin so I kinda have to stick with light nude/pink shades lest I make them look even smaller. It sucks :(

  12. very pretty you always have such gorgeous looks!!


  13. I love Willow !

    And the pics are fab, even the weird ones you end up looking gorgeous !

    And no way do you look like the troll, you ain't hair enough !!

  14. soooooooooo pretty! and i', luvn the lip color!!!! :D

  15. That lid color is AMAZING! And I LOVE Azalea blue on you!

  16. lol - hell yes i remember that troll (one of the movies i saw in cinema with my dad as a child, and multiple times later :D)... buuut i must say, the similarity is low. ;)
    looks great.

  17. Oh my! in love with that lipstick!!! and LOL!!!! at the picture with your funny face

  18. Love Willow! Beautiful combination as always! :o) You would never look like a Troll! Your lip color is Amazing! So pretty.

  19. Love this look! I usually wear black so I can wear any shade then, but if I do have a shirt with some more color it happens that I match it a little =)

  20. Gorgeous! Love the lipstick! x
