Day 5: Monochromatic Purple

 HEYTHERE it's Day 5 and I finally have this post I've been trying to do for the last 2 days! The theme for this look coincides with both the NTMS weekly challenge AND Nymphette's calendar challenge for yesterday: Monochromatic! For my one color I chose purple and used alternating shades to create this look.

I actually did makeup and took pics during the day! :O Normally it's late afternoon or evening when I do makeup but this time I managed to take pictures before the sun set, lol. As a result it's been different trying to edit the pics and such, as I'm not used to dealing with photos that were taken in daylight. I only used one camera this time but I used two different lenses. Some pics were taken with flash, some without, some in direct sun, some in indirect natural light, etc. I hope it provides a variety. :)

Sunlight pic! I like this one<3
