We’ve got a passion for PURPLE. This love child of red and blue is the basis for so many colors we adore. From vibrant violet to deep plum and everything in between, there are many makeup shades to choose from for eyes, face, and lips. So, step away from the safety of neutrals by adding this glorious color to your next makeup look!
What’s the best way to wear purple eyeshadow?
Change up a classic with a purple smoky eye. It can be as easy as lining the eyes with Danessa Myricks Cushion Color in Liquid Lilac and then smudging it before it sets. Or show off your blending skills by using multiple eyeshadows to achieve a dramatic, smoldering effect. If this seems too much work, don’t worry—one gorgeous shade washed over the lid is always an elegant solution.
Can purple blush look good?
Purple blush can be tricky because you don’t want to look bruised. A berry shade with more red than blue like Kevyn Aucoin Neo Blush in Grapevine will look more natural. However, for editorial, runway, or ’80s-inspired party makeup, don’t hold back and drape those cheeks in Ben Nye Powder Blush in Purple Passion! Then there’s Lemonhead SpacePaste Glitter Concentrate in Houdini, this bestseller takes iridescent highlighter to a euphoric level (and looks fabulous on everyone if you ask us!).
What shade of purple lipstick is best?
Lip color is a vibe, and these wearable shades in the purple family will beautifully enhance yours. From Dose of Colors, Liquid Matte Lipstick comes in Stone—a cool dusty mauve reminiscent of the 90s and the lusciously saturated Berry Me. And Ben Nye Lipstick in Wicked Plum speaks volumes if your mood is unapologetically sleek and chic.
