Plum-colored makeup is one of the hottest trends this fall.  This warm, rich shade can easily be worn both day and night.

Makeup artist Sonia Kashuk shows us how easy it is to get the plum look.

For the eyes:
Starting with a metallic plum shade, dust the color all over the eyelid from the lashline to the contour of the crease. Extend the color out toward the outer edge of the eye.

Using a contour brush, take a deeper plummy purple and apply the color into the crease.  Apply in a V-like shape at the outer corners of the eyes.

For the lips:
Tap the lips with plum-wine lip color to pull the look together.  You can control the intensity of the color by applying in layers.

Sonia's tips: 

  • Always shake off your eye shadow brush before applying to prevent dropping color on the face.
  • Use a brush to apply your lip color.
