Three Purple Lipsticks You Shouldn’t Be Afraid to Wear This Fall
Purple has always intimidated me. It’s a bold choice, especially when it comes to makeup, because it’s not a color that occurs naturally on your face.
Purple lips are super in for fall, though. (I blame Lorde.) So my coworkers and I decided to prove to you all, and to ourselves, that you shouldn’t be scared to try out the trend. Below, we model and talk about some of our favorite shades.
My undertones: Neutral. I wrote about the whole process of finding that out, if you want a play-by-play.
My lipstick: MAC Lipstick in Heroine
This purple reminds me of: Barney. The dinosaur, not the Simpsons character.
Why I love it: It’s dramatic enough that if you wear it during the day, you hardly have to put on any other makeup. It’s basically a one-step beauty routine! (For night, I pair it with some eyeliner.)
Her undertones: Warm
Her lipstick: Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense in Pearly Violet
This purple reminds her of: A ripe, delicious eggplant
Why she loves it: It’s a standout shade but still versatile enough that you don’t have to worry about it clashing with your outfit.
Her undertones: Cool in the winter, neutral in the summer
Her lipstick: LORAC PRO Matte Lip Color in Violet
This purple reminds her of: Radiant orchid, Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2014. So on trend!
Why she loves it: It goes nicely with sheer washes of pink and mauve eye shadow.
