Choosing the Right Purple Lip for You
Because purples are often considered an extreme color, we’re often surprised at how beautiful it looks on our skin. When choosing a purple, consider the depth of your skin first. Read the below tips from Global Educator Shawn Towne to learn how to find the right lip color for your skin tone.
Purple Lipstick for Light & Dark Skin Tones
If you have a fair to medium complexion, try purple shades that have a hint of pink in them.
Deeper skin tones can wear more blue purples, which are great shades to help make your teeth look brighter, too!
Choosing a Purple Lip Color by Undertone
If you have a lot of yellow in your complexion, you will look great in colors like Kir Royale PureGloss Lip Gloss or Mary PureMoist Lipstick. If you have more pink in your complexion, then try colors like Rikki PureMoist Lipstick and Cosmo PureGloss Lip Gloss.
Purple Lipstick for Mature Women
When it comes to age, if purple looks good on your skin, it doesn’t matter how old or young you are. The finish, however, should be considered more carefully.
If you have mature skin with texture around your mouth, you may prefer a PureMoist Lipstick or Lip Fixation Lip Stain/Gloss to a Lip Gloss. They have less of a tendency to settle into lip lines and give more longevity. Try Fetish Lip Fixation Lip Stain/Gloss and Karen PureMoist Lipstick.
