The Look: Perfect plums.
The Lowdown: Purple is really having a moment this fall—especially the plummy shades Nicole wears here. I love that it’s all so LIGHT! See, people? Purple isn’t at all scary when you do it like this!
As I mentioned yesterday in the case of Kristen Bell, it’s a good idea to make sure your lips and cheeks are in harmony with the tones you put on your eyes. May I recommend the simply excellent new Black Tie Violets holiday colour collection from Clinique (just out this month)? It makes all of this harmonizing business a no-brainer. After the jump, details on what it includes.
The essentials from this collection are this gorgeous Colour Surge Eye Shadow Quad in Black Tie Violets ($32.50)… (**Sold out on the U.S. site, so move fast on this one, Canadians!)
the Shimmering Stripes Powder Blusher in Tuxedo Plums ($38.50):
the Full Potential Lips Plump and Shine gloss in Double Plum ($22.50):
and the Brush-On Cream Liner in Violet Luxe ($16). (I know I always say this, but the liner—especially along the waterline, as Nicole’s done here—really elevates the look. I always, always ground any colour I put on my eyes with a dark liner.)
All limited edition and available now at Clinique counters across Canada.
