I went for ’80s today… Don’t know if I quite got there, but it’s all good. I still like how this look turned out.
So, plums and purples today. And I found this top that I’ve had forever. It’s by Halogen, and I got it at Nordstrom a zillion years ago.
I wanted my makeup to complement the top, which is something I don’t do very often — coordinate my makeup with my clothes — especially lately. Lately my clothes have basically been an afterthought (although I’m working diligently to change that), but today I thought I’d coordinate. Plus, big hair. I was going for ’80s hair…or a modified version, but I’ll get to that in a sec.
First, the two key ingredients in this look… LOL! Ingredients. What, are we making brownies? OK, the two key “elements” are a purple eyeshadow called Slow As You Go, and a plummy golden bronzed cheek/face powder called Mother o’ Pearl.
Both are from the new MAC Mirage Noir summer collection available now.
MAC Slow as You Go Eye Shadow ($17)
You’re gonna dig this if you’re a fan of MAC Trax.
