50 Shades of Purple

Hello lovelies!

So I finally heeded the call! This post showcases a purple themed makeup look that I did on myself. Sadly my camera is not the best, but I did my best.

Side view... Feeling all kinds of sun-kissed.

Purple is definitely one of my favourite colours when it comes to makeup. And contrary to popular belief they compliment darker skin tones extremely well.

My eyebrows must please be excused in these images, I am only scheduled for a wax next week even though my unibrow is threatening to reveal itself. I did not add extra to my brows, they are this thick naturally… I just filled them in and darkened them a little bit.

I know my round cheeks call for like severe contouring but I don’t know I just wasn’t feeling it all that much so I just did a light contour.

  1. I’m loving the purple hues myself Neki, thanks for sharing your tips – would have also been useful if you could say where u bought ur individual items though?! 🙂

    • Hi Vez… My apologies… I have done several posts in the pasts on where I bought my products so I figured it would be repetitive. But mainly Clicks, Dis-Chem, Foschini and Edgars.
