Gradient Purple Princess look! (dinner at Din Tai Fung)

Purple Princess! I've always loved blues and greens for colorful eyeshadow looks but now and again I love dipping into purples! I did this pure purple look using the purples from my coastal scents 36 smokey palette! I unfortunately didn't take photos of all the products I used but do enjoy my photos from dinner!

Continue below for the gradient purple look!

Wearing a combination of purple and pinks from the Coastal Scents Smokey palette!
On my lips is a combination of P2 Sheer glam (my review) and Etude House Dear My Crystal Gloss (my review)!

I was done with my make up and thought it was time to take some fun photos! I never take 'fun' photos with the exception of some duck face shots which aren't that interesting either!

Featuring some of my favorite brushes! Ecotools bronzing brush for buffing contour, Make up shop round blush brush, Real Techniques powder brush, Real Techniques stippling brush!

Dinner at Din Tai Fung! Hot and Sour soup is excellent from them! Full of tofu, mushroom, meat, egg, bamboo shoots and the flavor was very full although a bit more black vinegar made it perfect!
La Mian with wantons! Simple and delicious! The hand made noodles are so chewy and wholesome!
Steamed vegetable buns! Steamed dim sum is Din Tai Fung's specialty!
I absolutely love how the vegetable mix is so full and there's not so much bun. The filling is fine and so delicious!
Steamed vegetable dumplings! The skin is delicious and they are so delicate and much healthier than fried dim sum!
Thinly sliced ginger with black vinegar on the dumpling! A perfect mouthful!
Fried pork and prawn wantons! They were fabulous! Sooo crispy and bubbly and really excellent!
The filling was fine but yet there are good chunks of prawn! So tasty and the skin is absolutely perfectly fried! Not oily or greasy to touch at all!
Mince pork and mushroom la mian! It's  super flavorful and fragrant because of the shitake mushroom and the noodles were fantastic! Love the generous amount of meat sauce!
Look at the coating on those noodles!
Add a tablespoon of fine chilli oil with chilli bits and the noodles are PERFECT!
My lovely boyfriend having a mouthful of the fried wanton!
I love this super glowy shot right in front of my window! All of my photos are taken with day light from my window!

What color do you pick for a one color gradient?
Do you enjoy chinese cuisine?
Let me know!

Feel free to comment!
Thank you!
