Today is my 5 year anniversary of being married with my husband. We’ve been together as a couple for almost 10 years. So I got dolled up and we went out for sushi. I was able to cram my feet temporarily into my crocs (as my right foot is still very swollen and this makes putting on shoes a real challenge). I tried to do a purple smoky eye look, since my husband’s favorite colors are black and purple.

Black Tied – a midnight black with a silver white sparkle
Parfait Amour – vivid bluish-violet duochrome with violet opalescent shimmer
Boundless – a hot pink-red
SinisterRouge – A deep but vivid garnet burgundy.

I wanted sheer red lips, since I felt like my eyes were pretty intense. I should have added more of the black to the outer part of my eye to make it darker, but I’m still trying to improve my skills with doing the smoky eye.

Parfait Amour is the perfect color for this because of its lovely sheen. I’d forgotten how lovely this color was.

Sinisterrouge was a nice complimentary blush color in my opinion. I need to eventually get a full size of this, but for now I’ve still got plenty left in my sample!

What do you think?
