All About Purple - FOTD

Nars Desire (L) and Amour (R)

I posted a picture on instagram at the weekend and thought I would share the products used.

Until recently I have always worn brown and gold shades, going for a neutral eye and the thought of anything else made my come out in a cold sweat! With make up looks steering to a more plum and purple tone I thought I should give it a go.

  • Laura Mercier Silk Crème foundation.
  • Crown Brush Concealer pallet to contour.
  • Nars Laguna Bronzer. 
  • Nars blush in Amour.
  • HD Brow pallet.
  • Elf eye shadow primer on the lid and under eyes.
  • Mac Cranberry in the outer corners of the lid and under eye.
  • Mac Woodwinked in the inner corners of the lid and under eye.
  • Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara.
  • Top Lashes - Semi Permanent Eyelash Extensions
  • Revoln lip butter in Peach Parfait.
  • BeautyUk lipstick in Plumalicious.*
I'm not one to wear a dark lip so I used the Revlon lip butter in the centre and the darker plum in the corners to create a soft ombre lip. I find combining the shades like this makes it a lot more wearable.

What do you think of this plum look? What is your favourite plum shade?

    1. Thank you hun! I LOVE my eyelash extensions, no mascara can beat them! xx

  2. Looking ridiculously pretty here Lou!! You'd probably like Mac Plumful on your lips-it's not too dark or bright. And I 100% recommend you get Mac Sable eyeshadow-it's in my monthly faves post which I will put up soon but it's a mid bronze with the slightest hint of plum pearl through it, it's absolutely stunning and would look fab on you

      You really do know how to spend my money don't you! Sable sounds amazeballs! Just the sort of colour I would go for, I'll def check it out and I might be brave and go for Plumful as well! hehe ;p
      Thanks for the lovely comment <3 Mwah xxx

  3. This is such a pretty look :) Your eyelashes are insanely long, i am so jealous and i am also going to consider getting some eyelash extentions hehe :) I love a nice berry coloured lip during the Autumn season when all the darker colours start to make an appearance from the wardrobe~

    1. The LM gives a great flawless finish, I really like it but the shade I bought is too light so I can only wear it in winter! :( xx

  4. That crown palette looks really good, i've been on the lookout for something like that forever! xx

    1. It is good and as you can tell by the photo it's well used! lol xx
