Color Story: Purple Reign

This Summer, a lot of people are talking about corals and oranges being the trend.  I wanted to show that just because a certain color is the trend for a certain season, does not mean that you should neglect other colors that are usually considered better for other seasons.  Today, I picked my favorite makeup color... Purple! 
I chose some purples that are bright and that look good during the summer time

(the problem with using my camera phone is that it's hard to see the true colors of these purples)

1. Mac Play Time lipstick: This lipstick is so bright and lovely. Perfect to liven up a look.
2. Nars Sin Blush: This color is awesome for Autumn, but it's just as awesome for Summer nights :)
3. Mac Plum Reserve Mascara:  This purple is great just to add something to the lashes if you do not feel like doing much with makeup.  Plus it lengthens my lashes like crazy! 
4. Mac eyeshadows in Creme D'Violet, Stars N Rockets, Vibrant Grape:  I picked these 3 purples rather than my other purple eyeshadows because these are brighter and less plum-like than my other ones.


  1. I love purple! I've been wanting to rock a purple lippie (and quite possibly lipgloss) for a while, but I'm not sure how it would look on my skintone. :( Buuuut I do love purple mascara on my lower lashes. :)
    Great post! :D

    you should def try it! There has to be at least one purple out there that will look good.. it all depends on what kind of purple and how exactly you want it to look. There are so many out there!
    Just go to makeup counters and play around with colors or start getting a few really cheap ones from beauty supply stores just to play around. Then from there you will know :)
