Easy Looks: 3 Ways to Wear Purple Makeup
One of the must have fall makeup colors? Purple! Whether plum or violet, wearing purple is universally flattering and a perfect way to break out of a neutral colored makeup rut. Here are three ways to add some purple into your beauty routine:
- On the Lash Line – The easiest way to start using a new makeup color is on the lash line. Use your angled eye liner brush to apply a gel liner in an inky plum or bright violet as close to the lash line as possible. Also try a creamy, soft pencil or wet your liner brush and dip it in a dark powder shadow color.
- In a Smoky Eye – Makeup artist Dick Paige swears by a purple smoky eye. “You can wear it demure or bold,” he tells Lucky Magazine. “Done subtly, you barely notice it’s not black, but it’s softer and prettier. And full-on, it’s just gorgeous.” Just makeup sure to apply color with one eye shadow brush, and blend color with another. Try mini brushes if you don’t have two larger ones.
- On Lips – Grab a lip brush and swipe on an electric purple pout as seen on the runway of Haider Ackerman. Purple on your lips does take confidence to wear, but Allure.com loves them for being girly, whimsical, and “maybe a little intimidating.”
