Purple Lipstick: A striking shade to highlight your lips

Red, pink and even nude lipsticks are more than common, but recently another color has gained the lips of women and has been successful in the most varied makeups. Purple lipstick became part of makeup kits and used by celebrities such as Isis Valverde, Lorde and Katy Perry.

For Torriton Beauty & Hair makeup artist and eyebrow designer Ligian Barduco, the color purple alone is fascinating. “When we put stronger tones in the mouth, the tendency is to make the eyes more relaxed, but it depends a lot on who is using it and the shade of the lipstick, as purple can travel through various shades from lilac to maple”, she says.

According to the makeup artist, purple lipstick looks beautiful on all skin types. “But you have to be careful with the tonality. The darker and stronger tones look great on lighter skin and the more open and light tones look great on brunettes, but this is not necessarily a rule,” she details.

Tips for using purple lipstick

Combining purple lipstick with the eyeshadow may not be an easy task, but Ligian gave some touches that can help when choosing the eyeshadow color. “The shades of brown, gold and pink are very good, the purple and lilac also harmonize. I like it when used with just mascara and eyeliner,” she teaches.

Another question is whether you can wear purple lipstick on a daily basis, as it is a very prominent color. According to the makeup artist, yes it is possible and it depends on the woman’s personality. “I believe that the shade of the lipstick has a lot to do with the personality and the moment of life of each woman. Purple is democratic, as it travels through several shades, so you can use it on a daily basis, yes,” he reinforces.

If it is possible to wear it on a daily basis, it is also more than suitable to wear purple lipstick on more chic occasions. “If you have a more formal occasion, have attitude and harmonize with clothes and hair, I think it looks very beautiful and chic”, guides Ligian.

About being able to wear purple lipstick at any age, the makeup artist is categorical. “As with skin tone, care must be taken to make it look good, it’s the same with age. But any lipstick can and should be worn by any woman who feels good and beautiful with it.”
