Hi guys! I’m so sorry for yet another impromptu break but life has been a little bit hectic lately. As things begin to normalize, I’m starting to work on content again for you guys. It really makes me so happy to be working on this again because I always have found blogging to be such an amazing creative outlet. With that said, today, in my never ending quest to slather myself in the colour, I am playing with purples for this monochromatic look! The main inspiration for this was Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Prismatic Amethyst as I haven’t shown it on my face here yet. It really is quite beautiful, if I could somehow pull it off, I’d just cover my face in it, throw on some mascara and lipstick then call it a day! But, if I were to do that, I might as well strap a horn to my head and go full unicorn. So, let’s look my more practical, more restrained look!
Foundation: L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte in Classic Ivory
Concealer: Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer in Fair Neutral
Powder: Becca Blotting Perfector
Blush: Makeup Geek Blush in Secret Admirer
Contour: Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Kit – Sombre & Lucid (mixed)
Highlight: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Prismatic Amethyst
Eyes: Urban Decay Primer Potion (original). Kat Von D Metal Matte Palette – Silk (transition), Ribbon (crease and under eye) and Twinkle (lid and inner part of under eye). Essence Lash Princess False Effect Mascara (lashes).
Brows: Annabelle Skinny Brow Liner in Universal Tauple and L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper (clear)
Lips: Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick in Bittersweet
I’ve been really loving this monochromatic makeup trend I’ve been seeing online lately. Though, I feel like anytime I bust out purple eye shadow, the rest of my look ends up majorly leaning purple. What can I say, I love playing with purples! Though I did use an Urban Decay Matte Revolution lipstick for this look, the shade Bittersweet is also available in the Vice line in the comfort matte formula. You can find my review on this formula right here!

Looks great Robyn! The Becca Prismatic Amethyst looks really subtle and works well with your colouring. I like how you coordinated the scarf too! 🙂
Thanks! I love coordinating my scarves with my makeup if possible!
Very pretty – loving that lipstick on you!
Aw thank you!! I always forget to wear this lipstick but I really gotta start busting it out more!
Really nice look! In terms of monochromatic, I’ve been feeling pinks and peachy coral tones lately!
Oh yes, I did a peachy/coral look a couple weekends ago and I loved how it turned out! Such a pretty colour to coordinate a look around!
Great look! That UD lipstick looks so nice on you 🙂
Thank you so much!!
