Makeup Monday – Pretty in pink (and purple)

July 11, 2011 at 3:03 pm 18 comments

This week I will show you a look made by Isabelle, our gorgeous Swedish blogging friend! Visit her blog here for lots of reviews, tips and tricks!

In this picture she is wearing Granite and Puffin, two flattering matte shades. And she claims that this look is super easy and takes no time at all! 🙂

Granite – a matte pale mauvy pink.
Puffin – A matte smoky aubergine.

Here is what she did: Apply Granite all over the eyelid and then smudge just a tiny bit into the crease and under the eye. Keep smudging so it just looks like a darker shadow of the lighter shade.

I love this look, and it’s so flattering! It will be on my list of “must tries”.

Pop on over to our website and pick up these shadows for yourself. But be sure to leave a comment first, because one of yous will win a set of Granite and Puffin! I will pick a winner next Monday when I write the next Makeup Monday post. 🙂


The winner last week is post number 3 (thanks to,  Joanne Martel! Congrats! I will email you now to arrange for the Golden Bay & Switchel eyeshadows and a Blushing Bakeapple sample! Hurray!

    I love pinks and purples and use Puffin almost every day as an eyeliner — one of my faves 🙂

    I absolutely love puffin and would love to try Granite with it. Beautiful shaded together. Sometimes you never know what colour combos will look like until you put them together!
