Berry Me in Purple!!

While most people are changing their fashion and beauty cosmetics to reflect the warmer weather and sunny days, I'm still having a love affair with fall's favorite color: purple!

While purple has been my favorite color for years (blue and I broke up right after middle school), I've never been interested in wearing it on my face. I would even go so far as to say I was afraid of wearing something so bold, but now I can't get enough of it!

To ease my way into the purple craze, I started off wearing a berry lipstick by Wet 'N Wild and wore a purple eye liner by NYX. Then I graduated to Rebel by MAC and started playing with Plum and Fuchsia lip liners by NYX. At the peak of my purple obsession, I finally found Milani's baked eye shadow in Fantastico Mauve (the only want I initially wanted). That color sent my purple fixation into overdrive. It's gorgeous! To avoid the look of being seasonally confused, I wear these make-up products with warm colors and or with prints that will compliment the other colors.

Next up on my lippie list is to buy Cyber by MAC. This color is definitely bold, but I think I can pull it off, at least I hope I can. I'll try it in store first and then report back if I buy it! Wish me luck, ladies!!

Cyber by MAC. Rihanna wears it beautifully. This blogger with dark skin sold me instantly.
