Today I wanted to share with you all a simple purple eye makeup tutorial. I'm mainly using Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Fresco ($25) and Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Orchid ($29). I find these to shades work so well together, and I can see these two combination looking good on both warm and cool skin tones.

Here are the swatches of the two colors I'll be using today.

Just as a reference, I compared Fresco with Fresco in the Artist Palette and Ginger (my all time favorite all of the lid & crease shade).

I also thought Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Orchid looks similar to African Violet in the Artist Palette, so I swatched them side by side.

Fresco in the Artist Palette is a tad bit darker than Fresco in singles, and Ginger is more beige and lighter than Fresco. Orchid is lacking the gold shimmers in African Violet, and is a tad bit darker. But I do think that you can also get a really pretty look with Fresco (both the one in the Artist Palette and in singles) + African Violet combined.

First I applied Laura Mercier Fresco all over the lid and blended it upwards to my crease. The thing I like the most about Laura Mercier matte eyeshadows is that they blend like butter and are so easy to use! They are like eyeshadows for dummies!

Then I went in with Orchid Caviar Stick and applied that just on the lid. It just blends itself out so no further work is necessary.

After applying my mascara and drawing out my eyeliners, my makeup looked like this and that's pretty much it!

This is how my makeup looks with the flash on.

Super simple, super foolproof! I like pairing this eye makeup with a nude pink lipstick but a beige or purple lipstick would work too!

Do you like this look? How do you like to wear purple eyeshadows? Please share! :)
