A Colourful Soul

“Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.”      

-Marcus Aurelius

Valentine’s Day is coming up and I don’t know if I’m excited yet. Is that weird? This happens all the time and I’ll probably get more excited closer to the date. For this day, we always see the usual Valentine’s Day makeup, whether it’s a smoky eye or a soft eye look with the classic red lip. That’s all fine and dandy, but maybe you want to try something a bit more different and maybe even ‘out of this world’. I came up with a fun and unique purple glittery eye look paired with a nude lip, with the skin looking fresh, and glowing. With this look you’ll definitely knock out any date, and isn’t that what Valentine’s Day is all about 😛 I added a matching purple bindi, a decorative symbol worn on your forehead in Eastern cultures, which is completely your decision to wear. I do enjoy mixing Eastern and Western cultures; at times they can complement one another quite well.

Whether you are planning a date with you “sig-fig” (significant figure), your bff, or even a chill night at home, glamming up is always fun. And remember that at the end of the day makeup comes right off, so don’t be afraid to experiment and step out of your comfort zone.


Until next time!
