It’s official: One of the most popular colors for 2018 is purple. And luckily, purple is one of the prettiest colors to wear on your face. That being said, if you’re used to wearing mostly neutral makeup shades, you may be wondering just how to incorporate purple into your beauty routine without veering into clownish territory. Below, we’re sharing our favorite purple makeup ideas so that you can easily give this trendy hue a spin for yourself. Keep reading for tips on wearing purple eyeliner, eye shadow, and lipstick. You’ll be a purple makeup pro in no time.
How to wear purple eyeliner: If you’re looking to ease into the purple makeup trend, start by using a purple eyeliner for a small pop of color before moving on to purple eye shadow and purple lipstick. Draw a thin line across your upper lid, and if you’re feeling more adventurous, flick it out for a cat eye effect. Keep the rest of your eye makeup simple—a coat of mascara and you’re good to go. It’s that easy!
Our best purple eyeliner: The L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Purple is a creamy, long-lasting eyeliner that glides on easily and won’t smudge. You can even use this eyeliner in your waterline.
How to wear purple eye shadow: To keep your eye makeup from looking too young, don’t mix purple with any other shades. Seriously, it speaks for itself! When it comes to purple eye shadow, you’re in luck if you have green eyes in particular. Green and purple are complementary shades, meaning they pair perfectly together. Don’t worry, you can wear purple eye shadow with any eye color—it just looks especially amazing when paired with green eyes! If you have brown eyes, opt for warmer purple hues, and if you have blue eyes, paint on cooler purple hues.
Our best purple eye shadows: Metallic makeup is having a moment and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. Give this makeup trend a try with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Metallics Eye Shadow in Violet Luster. Dust some onto your lid for a pretty, shimmery effect. If you want to create a purple smoky eye, try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Quad in Stacked Heels, which comes with four shades. Apply the lightest shade (second from the top) right beneath your brow bone, the second lightest shade (at the top of the quad) all over your lid, the medium purple (second from the bottom) in your crease, and the darkest purple (at the bottom of the quad) in a thin line.
How to wear purple lipstick: Coating your lips in purple lipstick might seem like a bold step—and it is! Wearing purple on your lips will definitely make a statement. That’s why it’s key to find the best shade of purple lipstick for your skin tone. If you have fair skin, try a cool-toned lavender or something sheer; if you have medium skin, try a warmer violet or plum; if you have dark skin, try a deep matte hue. Whatever shade you choose, exfoliate your lips and apply a lip primer first to help create a smooth canvas for your lipstick application.
Our best purple lipsticks: Now that you know how to pick the best shade of purple lipstick for your skin tone, it’s time for some product reccs! Try the L’Oréal Paris Paints/Lip in Lilac Lust if you have fair skin, the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Gleaming Plum if you have medium skin, or the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in At the Drop of a Matte if you have dark skin. Congrats: You’re a purple makeup pro! For more colorful makeup advice, here’s How to Wear Yellow Makeup.
