Plum + Gold: Our Day-to-Night Picks for Winter
As the busy holiday social season approaches, we’re wearing a versatile day-to-night lineup of beauty favorites. They add liveliness and hint of plum color to the workday and quickly turn your look into something more fancy and festive for evening plans.
Face: Start with moisturizing Liquid Silk Foundation and Cream Concealer to keep your skin feeling refreshed and looking even. A gentle sweep of Satin Matte Blush in Soft Plum emphasizes your natural cheekbones and looks beautiful in the winter morning sunlight. For a little extra glow, apply Rosegold Highlighter with the Sculpting Brush (paired together in the Ultimate Glow Set) to the tops of the cheekbones to accentuate your complexion and bone structure.
Eyes: Sweep Pressed Eyeshadow in Gamine from lashline to crease with your fingertip or a brush. The muted neutral tone instantly brightens the eye area. Follow with a hint of Natural Definition Eye Pencil in Ink freely traced along the outer corner of your eye, both along the upper lash line and lower. Keeping your eyes open while you apply helps you to enhance the shape of your eyes without drawing too much attention to the liner itself. Sweep a coat of Natural Definition Mascara in Black (find it with Ink in the Perfectly Paired Set) through your lashes to keep them looking defined and lush.
Lips: Calla will keep your lips happy through emails and meetings, and the delicate plum color adds a sophisticated subtle hint of color.
Touch Up: After work, you can easily transition your look for a last minute happy hour or a get-together with your pals. Touch up your lips with Lip Tint in Currant, and then dab Pressed Eyeshadow in Luxe over the center of your lid, and blending outward with your fingertip. It adds a soft bronze finish that intensifies your eye color, and its avocado oil-rich formula doesn’t require a brushes to blend for a natural finish.
Bonus: To add a little extra smokiness to your look, smudge additional Natural Definition Eye Pencil in Ink to your upper and lower lash lines, and blend with your fingertip to soften it. Finish with a fresh coat of Natural Definition Mascara to add a little extra flutter to your lashes.
