For this look I started with my basic face - primer, foundation, concealer and powder. I then used Laura Mercier's Violet Orchid on the cheeks and added a sheer light pink highlight shade. I used Bobbi Brown's navajo eyeshadow as a base, adding cement to the lid into the crease and Too Faced 'lap dance' shadow into the crease. I liner my upper lashline with Cliniques brown-black liner and smudged Bobbi Brown's mahogany into the upper lash line. I used MAC"s smolder on the lower lashline before adding a coat of black mascara. I finished the look with Laura Mercier's Plum Wine lipstick!

Elegant Cool Shades of Plum and Violet
I've been really missing wearing my plum shades. Today I decided to create a look centred around these shades. There are a lot of great plum/berry lip shades - some of my favourites are: MAC Craving, Rebel (for a deeper, darker plum-red look), Laura Mercier Plum Wine and NARS Shrinigar, just to name a few. For this look I've decided to pair Laura Mercier's Plum WIne lipstick with her Violet Orchid blush - I absolutely love this combination - it looks so sophisticated for day!
