Ladies Night: Neutral Purple Eye Makeup Look

Last Saturday was our monthly Ladies Night gathering. I've been trying to keep it up with making sure we have something every month so we stay in touch and have a fun night regularly. We went out to eat and have drinks at Gordon Biersch. I had never been there before but it was pretty good. The night was a lot of fun other than having a guy projectile barf right by our table. *shudders* I had to think happy thoughts and not allow myself to breathe through my nose for a bit!
This is the look I did for the night.

  1. Very nice outfit! And god, your hair looks FABULOUS!!! Wich hairdye do you use? And haircare? x

    1. Thank you! Hmmm...maybe I should do a post on hair. I've been using Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color Ultra Red for Darker Hair Permanent Color, Light Intense Auburn R3, for a few years and it's the best red dye I have used, and I have tried a lot! While it is for darker hair, my natural color is not very dark (light reddish brown), so this turns out bright. In terms of hair care, I only wash my hair twice a week. My hair/scalp isn't greasy so I can get away with it, but it is an important step in keeping my hair healthy. Washing your hair strips it of its natural oils which protect and condition the hair, so I make sure not to over wash. I also will use the "conditioner only method" every other wash. If you don't know what that is, do an internet search.
      Also, other than dying my hair, I don't use chemicals on it. That means no styling products at all. I also don't blow dry or use heat on my hair. When styling, I dampen my hair and will put it in foam rollers for curls and when I want to have nice loose waves, I again dampen my hair and will put it up in a bun or two and take them out when it dries. I also cut my hair myself. I haven't been to a salon for my hair in years. I'm very simple. :-)
