Painted Purple EOTD

I hope everyone is doing great today! I know I do not share a whole lot about my personal life on my blog but I am going to start to because I feel that I have gotten to know other bloggers well and some of you may want to get to know me a littler better also. I love this blogging community so much and all of you are so encouraging and positive.

 I want to share with you ladies some really good things that have happened to me lately. The first thing is that I just got a job working for Ulta! I showed my brother my blog one day and he asked me, "Dani, Why don't you get a job working with makeup?". So I thought that it wouldn't hurt anything by just applying to Ulta. And, the next day, the manager called me for an interview! I am working as a cashier but I already love it. Everyone is so nice there and it is great to be able to work around the different brands of makeup and be able to help others discover this makeup.

The next thing that happened is something that I have been working towards for a long time. As most of you may not know, I am a full time student in my 3rd year of college. I have been a pre-nursing major during this time because at my college, you must be accepted into the nursing program in order to continue on to get a bachelor's degree. This nursing program at my school is highly competitive and they only accept those with very high G.P.A's. I applied to be accepted into this program last semester, but was turned away. I have been working so hard to raise my grades so I would stand a better chance of getting in the program. I applied to get in again this semester and I just received my letter of acceptance!! I am so excited to finally be making my way to my career.
  I wanted to share this with everyone to tell you that if you truly want something in life and put in the hard work to get it, you will achieve it. 

On to the makeup!
I finally picked up the "Painted Purple" Maybelline Color Tattoo and was itching to use it. Purple is seriously my favorite bright color to wear as eye shadow. It is so pretty and really brings out the eyes. You cannot really tell from the pictures (I'm sorry my camera sucks) but I blended a dark navy blue on the outter corner. I also placed a pink/purple shimmer eye shadow in the inner corner of my eye. I absolutely love these colors together! 
I wore this look to my first day of orientation at Ulta.
