Graphite Plum

17 May

I had a mini-reunion with some family members whom I haven’t seen in eight years and I wanted to look sophisticated.  I like this look because it’s not too over the top, but it does say “young, mature woman.”  The colors on my eyes are echoed in my blouse and although I try not too match my clothes to my make-up, I chose similar colors.  This look features MAC Sable and Kid eyeshadows.

8 May

I don’t wear greys often enough, but I love it because it gives off such a soft yet smoldering vibe.  This look’s main impact is given off by Haux’s beautifully muted purple-grey tone.

Here’s how I got the look:
