How To Wear Purple On Your Eyes, Lips, Cheeks, & Nails
Posted on October 15 2019
One thing we love about purple? There’s a variation that looks good on everyone. The versatile shade comes in a multitude of iterations, making it a great color option for your eyes, lips, cheeks, and nails. From rich plums to muted lilacs, we’ve spotted the hue all over the runways and on the faces of our favorite celebrities—and now we’re ready to try it out.
Make a statement by incorporating purple into your makeup routine with the ideas below.
Dramatic Winged Eye. Go big with our Precision Liquid Liner in Amethyst (a shimmering deep orchid) for head-turning definition. Make sure the purple is visible enough to stand out, and don’t be afraid to make your wing super dramatic.
Soft Lilac Eyeshadow. Add a touch of stunning color while keeping your look minimal with our Mineral Eyeshadow in Angel. Blend the soft sparkling lilac hue up toward your brow bone for a seamless look.
The Vivid Lip. We have a variety of purple-based lipsticks to choose from, but Ultra Violet (a medium purple with opalescent pink hints) and Velour (a mid-tone plum with a cool frost) go for the bold. Enriched with nourishing ingredients, our long-lasting formulas will make a statement all night long. Make sure to prep your pout with our Lip Primer for ultimate saturation and wear.
Bold Metallic Eyelids. Swipe a few layers of our Mineral Eyeshadow in Dusk—a glittering royal purple—over your lids for a full wash of color. Keep the rest of your face clean and simple for divine eyes that pop.
Subtle Indigo Eyeliner. Draw a vivid line of color around your peepers with our Eye Defining Pencil in Indigo, a cool matte grape. This easy-to-wear shade can replace your classic black liner and will add just a touch of purple to your look.
Glowing Cheeks. To add brightness to a dull complexion, try our Mineral Blush in Haze. This product—which features a subtle hint of raspberry and a warm iridescent shimmer—can be re-applied to achieve the desired intensity of color without fear of powdery build-up.
Ultra Glossy Pout. Go dark with our Sheer Gloss in Mania—a luxe deep plum—and apply several coats for maximum shine. The sheer pop of color will keep your lips soft and supple.
Pretty Royal Nails. There’s no easier way to rock purple than with an edgy manicure. Our Nail Polish comes in an assortment of shades, but Wildflower (a true purple gloss), Reflection (a warm lilac crème), and Lilac Blossom (a shimmery violet) are our current favorites.
