Pinks And Purples And Miss Piggy

I die for Miss Piggy (yes, thank you Rachel Zoe for that tagline). And I die for this brunette version of Piggy- so cool and chic she looks!!

She is the quintessential diva and I've been in love with her since I was a 3 year old. I have many pictures of me and my first Miss Piggy doll (I was actually terrified of her when I first got her, but obviously got over it quickly) and I carried her around everywhere. I knew even at a young age how fabulous and major she was- HA!!

So one of my best-est girlfriends, Ann, bought me -actually my daughter- a mini Miss Piggy doll (shown above) since she knew how much Piggy used to mean to me. What I love about this fab Pig is that she usually rocked a lot of pinks and purples, whether it be in her clothing or in her makeup. So it inspired my latest "face of the day" I guess you could say.

Here's a look at my Pink & Purple Piggy face and the main products for achieving it:

  • Eyes- DiorShow Blackout mascara & Kat Von D's True Romance shadow palette in True Love
  • Cheeks- Napoleon Perdis Colour Disc in #92 (this is actually an eyeshadow used as blush)
  • Lips- Rimmel Exaggerate lip liner in "eastend snob" & Nars lipgloss in "turkish delight"
  • Oh, and if you noticed the perfume bottle in her lap, it's my absolute fave fragrance, Lolita Lempicka, which uh huh, happens to be the most beautiful lavendar glass bottle. I've worn this for about 9 years and never get tired of it. It's violet, vanilla, and musk notes make me feel like the ultimate lady.

Purple eyeshadow is always super flattering on every eye color. I mean, Miss P has blue eyes and I have brown, and we both look fab in it, right??! So I just layered on all 3 purple options in my Kat Von D palette to make a huge impact. Because just like Miss Piggy would probably say when it comes to her makeup, "Go big or go home!"
