FOTD: Imperial Purple

FOTD: Imperial Purple

You know those Asian movies where there are princesses and emperors and soldiers on horses? Well, I got inspired one day by the pretty women in ancient palaces and came up with a modern royalty look. It just happens that I have this pair of dangly earrings from Lovisa that I so love, and felt they really suited the part too! Sorry, no fancy head gear though. A few more shots of the overall look:

Because women in royalty didn’t seem to smile a lot, if at all.

– Dior‘s Diorskin Forever Compact SPF 25 PA++

– Illamasqua‘s Powder Blusher in Ambition

– Bobbi Brown‘s Eyeshadow in Shade 61 Saddle (for brows and contouring of the nose)


For Eyes:

Skinfood‘s Sugar Dessert Shadow in 12 Choc Choc

MAC‘s eyeshadows in Vanilla (highlighting of brow bones) and 100 Strokes

Urban Decay‘s 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencils in Ransom (upper eyelid) and Stash (lower eyelid)

Sleek Makeup‘s Shanghai lashes


For Lips:

 Maybelline‘s Baby Lips lipbalm

 OCC‘s Lip Tar in Ophelia


Actually, this look would be great for a day out at the mall too, because the eye makeup isn’t too heavy. We’ve been told in makeup academy that purple and yellow should never go together because they cancel out but somehow, this gold from Skinfood and purple from Urban Decay fitted kind of OK with each other. A rare instance, I suppose. The lashes from Sleek Makeup are my current favourite and you can get them online from Luxola.
