My Favorite Purples

Follow my blog with bloglovin

From a little girl, I was always driven toward all things purple. Every bedroom I had was painted a shade of purple! Most of the time, my makeup has purple somewhere in it, whether lips or eyes or cheeks, subtle or bold. I have been considered daring and even crazy for wearing such colors.

Hmmm...will all my crazy & proud purple-wearing divas raise your hand!! (raising both arms and even a toe)!!

I love the color and wanted to show what my go-to purple cosmetics are. I reach for these when a touch of royal essence is desired. (purple is the color of royalty)...but you knew that...right?

Oh The Love of liners!!!

After registering for my makeup certification program yesterday (whoo hoo). My bestie and I went to play and my favorite place, SEPHORA!!! Now in a place like that, one can easily become overwhelmed. But no, not me I am in heaven. Of all things that store has to offer, I am always pulled towards one type of item...The liners!. Which one? Doesn’t matter, I want them all.

Eye-liners, lip-liners, brow-liners OH MY!!! Yes I have a love for liners, pencil form to be exact. I could care less if it is skinny, jumbo, long or short, I will fill my basket with nothing but liners and try to convince myself that I need them all. Needless to say my bestie convinced me otherwise "Avi, you have all those colors already" :-( I put all but 4 back. LOL

So of course I had to come home and check. WOW!!! I do have all the colors I tried to pick up. But can you really have too many liners? HOLD UP...what is a liner???

A lip liner is used to make the lips more defined, pronounced and can add more color and dimension to the finished look. It also helps to keep the lipstick or gloss from bleeding and can promote long lasting color.

An eye liner is used to define the eye. It can take the look from subtle to dramatic, by outlining the rims of the eye. The color possibilities are endless.

A brow liner or brow pencil fills in a sparse brow while aiding in definition and shape.

So now, exactly HOW MANY liners do I have……

Lip Liners: 33 Sephora, NARS, NYX, AVON
EyeLiners:113 Covergirl, NYX, AVON, Mark, Urban Decay, Sephora, Wet n Wild, E.L.F, M.A.C, L'oreal,
Brow liners/ Pencils: 3 Anastasia, E.L.F, Avon

Shhh… yes I know I have a problem. But I am not ashamed to say it…

Hi my name is Avi and I am a "liner-holic"

My trip to M.A.C & Haul

After a few hours of bowling in celebration with and for a dear friends birthday, my hubby and I walked into the local mall for a bite to eat. We had not been to this mall in about a year. And so much had changed!

As we were heading around one of the many corners what did I see, M.A.C. The Wonder Woman promotional posters were all over and it was packed with people.  The lady who assisted me  was sooo very nice as oppossed to the other M.A.C Artists/salesperson I have come in contact with in the past. As an eclectic MUA on the rise (holla!!) I use a varitey of brands, but I felt it was time to get numbered. LOL! Meaning I got matched for foundation and concealer.  I am NC45!

Long story short, I walked away very happy with my little black bag! Wantto know what I got...

Pro Longwear Foundation NC45
Concealer NC45
Mineralized SkinFinish Medium/deep
Kajal eye liner in SmoothBlue
Brush 239
Wonder Woman quad in Defiance

Yup I am happy

Make It A Beautiful Day!
