faded raspberry

I think I hate the winter weather. All week it has been a CHORE to get decent lighting for makeup.  I think the past two days I haven’t been able to get ANY close eye shots  to work, between the weird shadows, the distorted lighting….

Ah well.

      Thanks! I love the sort of subdued fruity shades. I’m still frustrated at the lighting situation. I would love to have been able to get decent close-ups.

      Ah well.

    Pinky-purply makeup and curly hair? Yes please!
    This look is very sweet-looking, I like it a lot.

      Thanks. I love the sort of muted colors in this, and I was happy at how Expensive Pink looked with the purples. At first I’d thought it might be too orange to work for what I had in mind. Glad I didn’t chicken out, though.
