Looking for a complete makeup set? Laura Mercier has a fantastic limited-edition Colour-To-Go Portable Palette for Eyes, Cheeks & Lips. The Smoky Violet color scheme is extremely flattering for brown eyes. It includes three gorgeous eyeshadows along with their smudge-proof Tightline Cake Eye Liner to create an easy purple smoky eye. I was very pleased to see them last over 8 hours without any creasing and fading was minimal. I also didn't use any primer so I can only imagine how much longer it would last.
The double-decker palette also has a warm Bronzing Pressed Powder and a light pink Second Skin Cheek Colour. The long-wearing blush and bronzer are finely milled — the silky texture is very easy to blend. The bronzer can be rather dark for fair skin so use sparingly and blend it out completely. A light peachy-pink Lip Glacé is included to finish the look. If you want something more neutral, the brand also offers the palette in a Natural Nudes option.
This Colour-To-Go Portable Palette ($50) has sold out on LauraMercier.com, but you can still get it online at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Macy's.
