Pourpre Divin

Gårkvällens makeup blev ljust persikofrostig på ögonen och mörklila på läpparna. För ovanlighetens skull blev det varken rouge, bronzer, contour, mascara eller något slags eyeliner, jag kände vid någon punkt att om jag applicerar något mer nu så blir makeupen för överdådig. Klokt av mig att lyssna på hjärnan ibland, för makeupen blev väldigt behaglig för att vara så kontrastrik. Lite lagom goth typ.


My makeup for yesterday night was a pale frosty peach on the eyes and dark purple on the lips. Strangely I didn’t wear any blush, bronzer, contour, mascara or any type of eyeliner, I just felt at some point that if I applied any more on my face the makeup would be too much. Listening to my brain now and then is obviously a good thing, the makeup turned out very comfortable to wear for being so contrasting. Just enough goth.
