Just another ordinary day in school! I think I just got my shipment of RiRi Boy a few days before these photos were taken so I was really excited (and nervous) to try it out. What’s funny is how much I fell in love with the RiRi Boy shade when I initially thought it was that one shade in the MAC RiRi Hearts Summer 2013 collection that I wouldn’t like!
In fact, if I remember correctly, I wore purple tones on my face the whole week since my MAC RiRi Boy order also included MAC Strong Woman and the 3 mattenes from the MAC Taste Temptation collection. I was also just honestly ecstatic that I was actually able to pull off purple hues, because when I tried a purple lipstick for the first time (MAC Heroine) I thought it looked horrible on me.

Just a little tip, though: if you’re planning to wear purple to violet hues on your face and you’re trying them out for the first time, do so with a light hand then simply adjust gradually according to your preference (this applies to eyeshadow, lipstick, and blush). This is to avoid making the corresponding part your face look bruised (because really, who wants to look beat up!?).
