Dinner with Friends Look

Hi, so this is the really simple look I created for dinner with my friends. I only used two mineral eye shadows, and one highlighter from nyx. I recently received In The Garden and Mystic Night eye shadow minerals and I LOVE them! So pretty! In The Garden is just like a dark topaz exploded with diamonds. Mystic Night is a great dupe for the purple shadow liner from the Smashbox Untamed collection. An intense and sparkling violet.
