Nene Leaks Sophisticate's Black Hair Magazine Inspired Makeup

Hey Dolls!

This FOTD is from September 29  I'm sad to say I haven't really been wearing makeup the month of October. I think I've worn make up like maybe 2 times in October :( I've been so drained and Busy!
But Anywhoos.... It was a Saturday and I finally had some free time so I wanted to play in my makeup. I recently got the new Sophisticate's Black Hair Magazine with Nene Leakes on the cover and I spotted Purple eyeshadow. I have a weakness for Purple! Ya''ll know I love purple and I'm starting to think I have a serious problem because now I want purple hair. Well not the whole thing purple just my tips. ;0)
 Well, I tried to do my makeup similar to Nene's and here's what I came up with.

Here's Nene's makeup for the magazine
Nene makeup was so much lighter.

I just love this eyeshadow and I thought it looked identical to Nene's Lid color: Raving Beauty Exotic Bloom. It looks pink but has a soft purple sheen to it.

Gorgeous sis! I so love this look. I love how Nene isn't afraid to rock a super nude lip. Her makeup is always on point. I really like your shadow. That pink is one that I need in my life because of the purple undertones!

I love purple too! LOVE it. I haven't been wearing it a lot lately, however, you've inspired me! Thanks for sharing!
