If you’ve been on Instagram as of late, you’ve probably noticed that everyone from Rihanna to your favorite fashion blogger is rocking that purple lipstick. While it’s not the most wearable color, it’s trending so it’s worth trying at least once. Besides, you might love it!
To wear purple lipstick the best way possible, here are a few things you’re going to want to do:
Pick out the right shade for your skin tone. If you have warm and deep undertones, red violets are where it’s at for you. They complement the yellow in your skin.
For cool undertones, go for blue violets that will complement the pink in your skin.Conceal your lips. Unless your lips are white, their color will always alter any lipstick. If you use a light colored concealer, however, you’ll get the truest color every time.Use a liner. Lip liners are great as a base for any lip product and really help make it last.
Be sure to use a liner that is the same color as your lipstick so it doesn’t alter the color of your lipstick.Clean up with concealer. For those mistakes you make just know that your concealer will always be there to make it everything look better. Purple is pretty bright so if you don’t have the steadiest of hands, clean up around your mouth with your favorite concealer.Warm up your face.
Purple tends to be a cool color even when it has pink undertones so it will definitely drain your face of color. Apply a light layer of bronzer and define your eye sockets with the same bronzer to warm your face back up.Check out the video to see more on how to rock purple lipstick!
