Makeup Monday, but on a Tuesday – Two tones

August 2, 2011 at 4:12 pm 3 comments

Klara had a visit from her Aunt Michelle yesterday, who hasn’t been here for a visit since Klara was 2 months old, so we spent the day with her. Aunt Michelle taught Klara many new tricks.. one of them was throwing her crayons up in the air and say “Mess! A mess!!”. She looooved that! I have a little video of it, I’ll see if I can post it later 🙂
So, that is why Makeup Monday is on a Tuesday this week. I hope you don’t mind! This week I was inspired by a look that was posted on Glamour Magazines blog. But instead of lavender and pink, I went with lavender and taupe.

This what I did: I applied Dovekie (a smokey lavender) along the lower lash line and Narn (a golden taupe) on the eyelid and up in the crease. I used an eyeliner brush to smudge Coal Shute along my upper lash line and on the inside of the lower lash line (the water line). Easy peasy! 🙂


Reply to this post for a chance to win the eyeshadows I used for this look! What colour combo would you use for a similar look? I was also thinking of Dovekie and Best Kind first, or perhaps Come By Chance and Missbehavin’


The winner of a Lip Glaze from the Makeup Monday last week is Renee H! Congrats to you! 🙂

    I would probably use best kind (since I don’t have Narn) and maybe Black tickle instead of coal shute (since I don’t have that either). Black Tickle would make it a little more sparkly and more of a evening look, I think?
