I promised a look using Maybelline's Barely Beige as an eye base, so here it is. I have to admit that after spending the summer embracing only neutral shadows, it's been a bit hard for me to incorporate color into my eye looks again. Especially purple, as I've never been a fan, and it's hard for me to wear. But you know. It's only makeup, it comes off.

I also wanted to feature Becca Berry Twist, since I used it in my fall lip color lineup and I've been trying to wear all of those again this month to show you how they look. I've been skipping foundation a lot lately, but with purple on eyes and a dark lip color, I do think it's important to minimize any sallowness or redness, so I used a CC cream, and plenty of undereye corrector.

|I kind of hate my hair right now. Sorry the lighting is different. Seattle weather is not consistent, even for five minutes.|
But I do like how it came out. And I think I'm ready to start playing with color again. Especially once I get my hands on that new Shiseido Color Bar palette!
What colors are you afraid to use in your daily looks? Do you go through color phases, too?
