For this look I started with a neutral concealer and Arbonne pink-beige foundation. I then combined the two shades in the Bobbi Brown blush duo 'Plum/French Pink'. For the eyes, I used MAC Coquette eyeshadow on the lid and then used an angled blush to smudge in MAC Smut eyeshadow into the upper lash line. I used a black mascara to finish off the natural yet classic eye look. The defining feature of this look is the plum-red lip. I combined MAC Soar lipliner (which I used to fill in the entire lip). I then applied MAC Lady Bug over the Soar liner. Voila - a chic, natural, yet classic 'Ralph Lauren/preppy chic' inspired look!!!

I think that Kate Middleton is the perfect example of this type of style and look. Here is the look I created:
