One of the items used in today's look is a pastel pink and orchid shadow duo I purchased long ago from Prescriptives, back when they had counters in Macy's stores (the brand now has an online-only presence at Prescriptives.com where you can still find many of their iconic products). The duo was barely used before I stashed it away, and while organizing recently I pulled it out from the bottom of a container and thought I'd give it another try before tossing it! I don't normally go for pastel shades on eyes but, for me, the addition of heavy liner helps to make it more wearable. Below is a list of a few similar shades that could stand in for these two:
MAC Seedy Pearl
MAC Pigment Pink Opal
MAC Pink Freeze
Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Pink Opal
Chantecaille Lilac Rose
Laura Mercier African Violet
Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Orchid
MAC Creme de Violet
The right half of NARS Sugarland Duo
Lancome Camisole (discontinued)

Here are swatches of everything used to create this quick and simple look:
On eyes I used the pale pastel pink on the lid and the darker shimmery orchid shade in the crease, with Stila's brown liquid liner on top lashline, MAC's Heirloom on bottom lashline, and black mascara. On cheeks I used a combination of the two shades in the BareMinerals Blush/Luminizer palette. On lips I used Chanel's Gardenia (a shimmery mid-tone rose). I used MAC's Myth to tone down the shimmer and lighten it up a bit and then lightly defined and blended in the edges with Urban Decay's Illegal pencil.
