Wearing a dark lipstick is always a good idea when fall and winter seasons hit town. When you’ve finally left those bright summer colors in a corner of your beauty box, it’s time we see how to wear amazing purple lipstick tones.
The truth is that some of the makeup trends come and go, but there’s still one that keeps coming back and that is – dark lipstick. This year, purple lipstick, in all its shades, took the throne over red. Many girls tried to find their perfect color. While some of them have succeeded, the others are still looking.
For this reason, in this post, I’ll show you some of the latest trends, but also how to wear purple lipstick depending on your skin type, makeup, and hairstyle.
How to wear purple makeup pencil after makeup artists
If you wear dark lipstick, the first thing to do is to scrub your lips. Put on the scrub and massage, then give a balm that you normally use. If it’s too oily, put a tissue on your lips and collect the greasy residue.
Now it’s time to put your purple lipstick on.
So choose the color depending on your skin type
There are many shades of plum. You are probably familiar with some of them – lavender, lilac, plum, or violet. Before you buy one, however, be sure to put it on to see if it suits your skin tone well.
If you have fair skin and a porcelain face, look for fresh and lighter purple lipstick tones. The shades of light lavender, lilac and purple will go perfectly with your light skin tone.
On the other hand, girls with dark skin can try darker shades like plum or dark purple. You can also try the shades between red and purple. They look great with some winter makeup.
How to wear a rest of your makeup with purple lipstick
Now that you’ve found the right shade of purple lipstick, it’s time to see how to apply the rest of your makeup. Which makeup for eyes and cheeks? Let’s see.
All makeup artists say that you should keep the rest of your outfit and makeup to a minimum. That means you shouldn’t be applying a heavily pigmented eye shadow, eyeliner, and mascara at the same time.
Use just a small amount of neutral eye shadow or just a little mascara instead. Do not worry; Your lipstick will make enough color statement.
How to choose the best shade of purple depending on your hair color
When we talk about hair color, you can apply the same rule as for your skin tone.
If you are a brunette or have dark black hair, you can wear dark purple lipstick. Don’t worry, you won’t look monotonous. The purple lipstick is an excellent choice for dark haired girls.
However, if you are blonde or have light hair, you can wear purple lipstick in shades that range from very light to a few darker ones. I can say that it is easier for the blonde girls to decide because there are many different options.
Matte or Shiny Purple Lipstick
The trends have changed significantly in recent years. Matt was the queen of lipsticks, and these days glossy and metallic lipsticks took over the makeup world.
If you want your lipstick to last a full day, you should definitely go for the matte and creamy ones as these are the ones that can stay on your lips the longest.
On the other hand, metallic and shiny ones are only suitable for photo shoots.
Whether you go for a matte or glossy purple lipstick also depends on what outfit you are wearing.
