Purple Faery

10 May 2013

As with all other things that come with being a girl, make-up should be fun. With the spectrum of colors, shades, and formulations available from hundreds of cosmetic brands, it's great to experiment and switch things up a bit every once in a while.

I have always wanted a purple lipstick but I've never had the courage to go and get one for myself (the closest to purple I have is the Maybelline Jewels Amethyst Ablaze that Kira gave me). Yes, courage, because as you may know, bold and out-of-the-ordinary lip colors require a certain amount of chutzpah for one to pull it off, and I'm not quite sure I have it.

Nevertheless, for one fun afternoon of launching Make Up Factory to the press yesterday, I entrusted my face to Jen of Maquillage Professionnel and let her work her magic on me. Here's what happened:

She made me a purple faery. It made me really giddy as one of my first (and favorite) SNS usernames is purpleazure_skye ha ha. I love this color combination so much!

Flawless base, groomed eyebrows, neutral shadow on lids and purple and blue eyeliner on the lower lash line, mascara, a light blush, and purple lipstick. All products used are from either Make Up Factory or MakeUp ForEver.

I really love how Jen did my make-up and I'm crossing my fingers I can replicate it when needed.

Some more photos:

With my officemate/ friend Rica, our copywriter whose makeup made her look like a geisha
Maybe because she was wearing a kimono cover-up that day?
By the way, I am wearing a Prism necklace in Fashionista from Palette Pursuit. Isn't it pretty? More posts about this new brand soon!
With the event host Vanessa
She said I look like a character straight out of a game she plays, and that made me feel kilig ^_^
Rica and me with Anne who is my constant companion and confidante in the office
Does this count as an outfit shot?
I only got to wear it again now, more than a year after a shoot with a local shoe brand last year
After experiencing the kind of boost that comes from wearing the perfect make-up and feeling pretty, I know I am going to be more experimental with colors and not go for neutrals all the time. Timing couldn't be better because tomorrow's make-up class is about Professional Photography. I'm so excited!

But first, I must rest.

Have a great long weekend, everyone!
