EOTD: Cupcake Empress

When I was playing with my Lime Crime Magic Dust shadows, I ended up wearing out a super bright look. The pictures don't show this as very bright, but trust me, it was! Lime Crime Empress is a gorgeous bright purple that leans pink and is nice and subdued in indoor lighting but outside, it's super bright!

First, some collages with the look. I also included a face "slice" because I wanted to show the lip color I paired it with (and keep my anonymity!). I used a light, natural pink stain to keep the focus on the eyes but the light pink really helped draw the look together (versus a nude lip which I think would have made the eyes more dramatic or more appropriate for evening time).

Some different angles on the colors used to show the duochrome goodness.

Picture overload!

Awkward angle trying to show Cupcake Thief

Some flash shots to try and capture Cupcake Thief and it's awesome duochrome shimmer...

Hope you liked today's look! It started as a simple natural look, to a quick wash of color on the lid, to full on makeup. Does that ever happen to you? My poor husband ends up waiting 10-15 minutes longer than anticipated, because I can't stop adding products and color to my face. My bad!


  1. Love love love the eyes! The way you blended the colors looks beautiful!

    1. Thank you! It's nice to get feedback on my non-polish posts. Especially when it's suck good feedback! =)

  2. Pretty look, so simple but beautiful :) How is the BB cream working out for you? I ordered one by Sleek and I hope it works with my problematic skin :D

    1. I'm really enjoying the BB cream. I used it with a brush and hated it but now that the weather is drier it's so nice and I use my fingers to apply and it's awesome!

  3. It's so hard to find a really pigmented bright purple. This one's gorgeous :)

    1. I Really like it, a lot more than I thought I would! It's fabulous.
