Lavender's blue, dilly dilly, lavender's green,
When I am king, dilly dilly, you shall be queen
...For me, January was all about delicate lavenders, drawing from my 'Inspired by Monet' post on New Year's Day. I paired the color with soft neutrals, pinks, and a touch of green. My favorite lavender eyeshadow was NARS Nouveau Monde eyeshadow duo (see swatches below). Nouveau Monde has a mossy green that adds an organic depth when paired with the lavender. I also got a lot of use out of Bobbi Brown Navajo and Cement eyeshadows. They look great alone, or paired with other colors. I was really proud that I finally reached the metal pan on Navajo (see above)! It was the first time I've managed to 'hit pan', as bloggers like to say. My favorite blushes were dainty pinks, including Illamasqua Nymph blusher and Illamasqua Katie blusher.
P.S. And of course my favorite nail polish this month is Essie Lilacism (see why here). I'll be wearing it until the Baltimore Ravens' NFL season is 'nevermore'!
