Most of my outfit posts show you my usual makeup look - fresh and barely there with natural or pink lips. I could remember my early 20's when my usual look consisted of really dark smokey eyeshadow, fake lashes and nude lips. Ah yes... the party girl days. While I thought that look totally rocked back then, I guess with age comes not just a more mature attitude but also a more mature way of dressing and putting on makeup. I have said goodbye to what my boyfriend refers to as my "shark attack" outfits. Based on what he coined those outfits --- you know what I already mean! Sometimes I would dig through my closet and see some of these outfits and I really wonder how I pulled them off!
Indeed my look has certainly evolved and my eyelids have not had an eyeshadow experience for the past three years. I would remember my friends teasing me about having a permanent smokey eyeshadow... if that's even possible! Now, the product that I thought I couldn't live without then... I stay away from as much as possible! I am so loving the fresh look!
But having this no makeup look all the time made me think of trying something new. Yes I wanted to go dark again... but no, not my smokey look from years ago... I decided to try something that I've never tried before. VIOLET LIPS. Yes to match with my violet ombre hair.
I love this sheer chiffon skirt from @annpinkycloset (Instagram) I thought it would look perfect when I try the dark look. I accessorized with a necklace and a cocktail ring that I handmade myself for my jewelry line, OLEIC. I absolutely love how Eunice of Purple Dot Photography captured my dark look! We were just hanging out by the pool that day. Oh the joys of having a photographer girlfriend! We can simply hang out, take outfit shots... and hang out again!
