Not Your Ordinary Date Night Look...Doll Like Eyes and Purple Lips!

Doll like eyes and purple lips is what I wore at my date with Baby Cakes over the weekend. I know, it's a bit extreme for a date night look. The white eye liner and lots and lost of mascara makes my eyes look super big and the purple lips is just way too bright and loud. But hey, we've been together forever, so I wear whatever I want and I don't really care if he's going to appreciate my natural beauty or not. Wow, that sounds rude. But I hope you know what I mean.


  • Reviva Labs face primer applied evenly through out the face. This will make the foundation apply smoother and last longer.
  •  MAC Studio fix fluid in NC42 applied with a damp Beauty Blender all over the face until you get an even application.
  • Set it with MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Natural in Medium Deep.

  • Urban Decay Primer Potion applied on the lids to prevent the colors from creasing.
  • Wet n Wild Color Icon I Heart Matte palette: apply white all over the lids up to the brow bone and brown and flesh on the crease with a fluffy blending brush to create a soft definition. 
  • Line the upper lash line with Sonia Kashuk gel liner in Ebony using an angled liner brush. 
  • Line the water line with Jordana eye liner pencil in white and set with a white eye shadow. This will create the illusion of bigger eyes.
  • Curl lashes and apply a generous coat of L'Oreal Million Volume Lashes mascara on the top and bottom lashes. 
  • Joey NY blush on the apple of the cheeks using a stippling brush.

  • Moisturize well with Blistex lip balm.
  • Apply Wet n Wild Color Icon eye liner in purple as a base for the lip color. This will give the purple under tone.
  • Top it off with Wet n Wild Mega Last lip color in Dollhouse pink, focusing on the center.
  • Lightly outline of the lips with the purple liner and blend with a lip brush so it doesn't look harsh. This will create kind of like a 2 tone effect. Purple on the outline and pinky purple on the inside.

And this is the outfit I wore. It's just as loud as the makeup lol. And love this top I got at San Pedro Wholesale Mart for $5. The lace and pattern is bright and crazy!

By the way, just want to say thank you for all your greetings on our engagement. I'm still pretty giddy and excited lol.

Have a great week!!!

  5. those lips are SO totally awesome. LOL my kinda date look...they aren't sure whether to be scared or turned on

  6. Such a beautiful look! I've been seeing a lot of people venture into purple lips lately, and you've stepped it up by adding a sort of ombre effect! I'm most definitely going to be trying this look out :)
    (I bought the Wet 'n' Wild Matte palette solely because of your beautiful posts including it, I've never loved a palette more!!)

  7. i love the Ombre purple lips, its very eye catching and did a great job with the gradient! I know what you mean as well. i don't care if i wear something really bright around my hubby since weve been together for a while now lol.

  8. love the gothic look! =) Not all people were able to pull off purple lips as gorgeous as you do! loving the overall daring look! pretty! ^_^~

  9. I LOVE the purple lips, and they definitely suit your dark skin tone :)

  10. Fantastic job with purple lips. I think this look makes a fun night out.

  11. You look pretty so why make yourself look so artificial?...its so unnatural and scary. If this is self expression, just like the rest its a lame excuse for shallow individuals or its is just taken out of context.

  12. @Anonymous: Yes, it's supposed to be unnatural. That's the whole point. Why would I do such "scary" makeup? Because I can and I love it!

  13. Stunning lip color! It's great that you played down the eye colors so that focus is on the lips. Very unique shade!

  14. wow u look like a doll!! I LOVE ur purple lips and your eyes!! amazing look!!

    Somehow you can just pull off that purple lip no question!
