I wanted to do a pink look today with Swish, so I decided that Creme de Violet would make a fun color to add to the mix. Then, I decided I’d do a step by step for you, though I’ve never worn these colors together before. All products are MAC unless otherwise noted. In case you’re wondering, my nail polish is China Glaze’s Frostbite.
Pale Out – a light pink with frost
Yogurt – soft pale pink
crème de violet – Vivid-pinkish-violet flecked with gold shimmer
Swish – soft bright pink with icy metallic shimmer
Little VI – a waifish little mid-tone violet plum
Opal – pink with opalescence
SinisterRouge – A deep but vivid garnet burgundy.

I think I should have maybe foiled Creme de Violet to get it to pop, but I really like how this look turned out.
Sinisterrouge was the perfect blush, but I couldn’t find a good lip look and I tried several. I just settled on Little VI because it was the best of the ones I tried.
