MOTD: Purple Lips? I'll Show You How!

                          Hello everyone! it feels great posting after a long time. Hope you all are doing great. Lately, my life just seems to be... super busy? I guess it's all a part of life and hopefully all this stress and work will be rewarding some day! 

So, I was really confused regarding what post to do because this year my haul was INSANE. I can't do haul posts cause it is wayyyy too much! I also believe using each product for a decent time to review it. Hence, you would not see posts of latest products! :P

Just when I wanted to do a make up look, pictures of Aishwarya Rai from the Cannes festival went viral. I really liked one of her looks. However, in one looks, I was rather speechless. A really contrasting,bright,popping purple lip popped up my screen. I liked the fact that her look was experimental but something was just not right. There was a whole lot of negative comments but I believe she carried that lip with a whole lot of confidence. I think the look would have been perfect only if.......

The eyes were toned down a bit. I think the smokey lower lash line only made her look more tired. It looks a little..harsh? Idk. I just think that something went wrong in that look. Anyway, I recreated this look in a wearable way with a purple lipstick I had somewhere in my draw! After seeing her picture, I remembered that I have the exact shade so I came up with...




No, my skin is not that flawless, it's my camera. Also, I will never be going out with that lip colour cause I cannot imagine the amount of death stares that I will get. I went for matte skin, natural brows, highlight&contour slightly, natural falsies and soft smokey eye. Oh! and a good dose of inner corner highlight!

A 1000 pictures taken and only 1 is posted.. for obvious reasons.. I look less of a joker! :P

I think these type of make up look looks great only in pictures, youtube, instagram, blog posts. I can never really wear that out to be honest. I believe, as long as you have confidence and don't care about anyone, go ahead and do your thing! 

Hmmm, just wondering what to do for my next post? Recommendations anyone? 

Also, thank you for still READING my posts! It means a lot to me! 


Much Love,
Emmy <3

  1. Yup, it was defenetly the eyes which made her look tiered. Still I think it was a fun look and she carried it well. I just understand the negative comments :/
    Anyhoo loved your take on it. I dont know there are some really weird shades out there now. My BFF in Us says ppl actually wear them out like green, blue. May be it's just here.
    Next post: may be haul post :P ha haha

  5. How have you been.. long time. The purple lips looks better on you. Ash would have looked better if her eye makeup was subtle and soft.

  8. Hey Emmy...I think this looks so nice and much more wearable on you.Darling you just killed it.I agree that Aish's smokey eye was too much smoked out and the lower lash smudging made her look tired.This makeup looks so much wearable on you,nothing over the top.Great work.

  14. I like your look a lot better. I suspect the lavender lip on Aishwarya was a last-minute choice. The eye makeup does not go with it at all.
