Pomegranates in October and February

Something interesting happened with this look. I wasn’t putting it together to necessarily take pictures and write up a blog post, I was actually just throwing on some color before I went to the movies. But what was interesting is that I layered two pomegranate colors, a light pink, and a tiny bit of purple, and it turned into this really pretty purple shade. While these pictures certainly aren’t showcasing any one color, I wanted to show how just playing around a little bit can produce something unexpected. So play! Go run to your bathroom or bedroom or (drool…) makeup room and play play play!

On the eyes:

  • bareMinerals Brightening Pearl eye primer from lashes to brow
  • Maybelline Pomegranate Punk Color Tattoo 24-hour cream eyeshadow on the lid

  • bareMinerals February swept above crease and blended down
  • bareMinerals May blended lightly in outer corner and under outer 1/2 of lower lashes
  • Mally volumizing mascara

I'm finally figuring out this makeup thing in my 30's. It's so much fun to collect and play with new colors and styles. I'm not a makeup artist, and far from it. I welcome any comments and tips you have!
