Gold and Purple Makeup look with 88 Cool Shimmer palette

I was one of those weird makeup ruts. Most of the time I don't have a plan when I start doing my makeup, I just think of a colour I'm in the mood for, grab a shadow in that shade and then randomly go from there.  So while my looks seem very well put together, like I put a lot of thought into them, I just sort of let my first thoughts and instincts take over.  So as I said, it's very random.  Most of the time that works for me but doesn't.  Palettes work during these rare makeup rut days because all the shadows are in one place and it's easier to pick something out. That's how this look was created. Not bad for being in a rut I guess. *shrugs*
