In an effort to stand up to bullying and send a message to the youth of America October 20, 2010 was declared Spirit Day, and everyone was asked to wear purple to show support. Once upon a time, in a hive far far away, this Honey B was just another awkward teenage girl struggling to fit in. Thank God for makeup and art as an outlet of expression! So to give another voice to the It Gets Better project, I have pulled out all my best purples in honor of Spirit Day. Purples are such a lovely, flattering color on every skin tone, and I especially love purple colors to bring out the warmness in brown eyes. The makeup in my purple arsenal may not exactly be violet, but they do have lavender undertones, which can be so girly and playful. On my look below, I used my favorite purple shadows in MAC's Parfait Armour and Stila's Smudge Pot in Violet as a base. I also used MAC's mineralized eyeshadow in Love Spell and highlighted with the lightest shade of my Romantic Mauves Avon quad. My lipstick is a pinky lavender MAC lipstick in Fashion Mews and my cheeks are Rock and Republics lavender mauve color, Tease.
As a lover of makeup, I am someone who stands up for individuality. Be true to yourself. To learn more about the It Gets Better Project, you can click the link.
