Purple Orchid eyeshadow FOTD

Today was my family's benefit luncheon but before committing myself to total afternoon of outside heat first I wanted to run a few errands. I cut my son's hair (which he told me wanted it like Jordan Knight's hair of NKOTB, lol!) Then I went and supported my local McD's contest by buying a lunch special for $2 -Quarter Lb burger, Med fries and Med Soda :)Then I had to go to the bank but by the time I got there it was closed, boooooo! Melrose was right around that shopping center of the bank so I decided to hit it up to see what I could find. OMGosh, I just want to say that Melrose is the best because they always have what I am looking for whether it be a pair of pants, jeans, t-shirts, shoes, handbags, cheap jewelry,etc... It is the best, I really prefer Melrose better than other expensive places (Macy's or 'the lacking of Plus size clothing store- Target'). I also love Old Navy, which reminds me I've got to go there soon....
So the rest of the day I enjoyed being at my in-laws & enjoying the bar-b-que.

My first thought about what I wanted my makeup to look like is that I wanted to see if I had tanned a bit....we've been feeling the Texas heat lately :) and yes in fact I have gotten a bit darker so meaning my usual foundie of NC40 has now went back to NC42. I found that keeping 1 of each in my makeup box is needed because I tan in the summer like from April thru November and I get really light in the winter and early spring. So today was my first day since last Nov wearing NC42...

I called this look the Purple Orchid because its what the colors reminded me of looking at the pics.
