FINDING CONFIDENCE IN BEING BOLD | purple & orange halo eye look

I’m definitely one to stick to safe colors. My go-to? A neutral eye look with a pink lip. It’s wearable, it’s classic, and it’s simple. And that’s the kind of thing I look for in my day to day schedule.

And I’ll be honest: I don’t know what changed, or how, or even when, but something ignited in me recently that is okay to not feel the need to apologize for who you are, what you look like, or what you enjoy.

If it makes you happy, if you aren’t negatively effecting anyone, then why not be who you want to be and do what you want to do?

Lately, as I’ve grown more interested in makeup, I’ve been wearing more bold hues, and have taken a liking to editorial makeup. And in lieu of Autumn, of being bold, of being brash, of transitioning into darker dramatic tones, here’s a not-so-wearable but extra-fun makeup look I wanted to share with you all.

Purple and golds? An orange matte lip? Sign me right on up.

      1. Oooh, perfect! I’ll get right that on a drugstore look! (Side Note: I posted a drug store product favorites today if you’re interested!) I have yet to try colourpop (I know, crazy) so buying some stuff and giving it a go sounds fun! πŸ™‚

  2. For me personally I’d always avoid this kind of look as I’d think it was “too much” or I’d be fearful to stand out. BUT THIS IS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!!!! Its perfect for autumn and I’m definitely going to try this myself as I usually stick to the same old neutral makeup. Your images are lovely and you look beautiful! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’ž

    1. I’m the same way! Anything that brings attention to myself I cower away from. But I’ve slowly started coming out of my comfort zone, and have been loving it. You would look great in a dramatic berry-toned smokey eye! Perhaps with some burgundy and rose gold! Thanks so much for the lovely words of encouragement πŸ˜€
