Tired of earth tones? Switch up your palette and get ready for the upcoming season. The trend in spring makeup is purple!
We don’t usually think of purple as a neutral. Think sheer plum, fresh violet, crisp lavender, and smoldering aubergine. Now you get the picture.
These playful tones can be worn by all. Rihanna looked ready for the season in frosty lilac shadow at the Brit Awards. The key to pulling off purple with spring makeup is choosing the perfect hues for your skin tone and eye color. One rule of thumb when wearing this springy shade – keep the purple to one area of the face and team up with neutrals to keep from going overboard.
Choosing the Perfect Purples for Your Spring Makeup Look
Fair skinned gals look best in warmer purples, like Kjaer Weis Lip Tint in Amazed.
Medium toned skin looks great in a sheer plum. Try RMS Beauty Lip Shine in Royal.
Darker skin tones can wear a deeper purple, like Ilia Beauty Lipstick in Ink Pot.
Alima Pure Pearluster Eyeshadow in Amethyst is perfect for bringing out those baby blues when paired with a neutral or barely pink lip.
RMS Beauty Eye Polish in Imagine pairs up perfectly with brown eyes and a sheer lip.
Play up green eyes with the rich plummy-ness of Kjaer Weis Eye Shadow in Pretty Purple.
Create a fresh petal flush with 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Lip & Cheek Tint in Sugar Plum Sheer. Flattering on fair skin but neutral enough not to overwhelm.
For medium skin tones, a sheer wash of golden plum in Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Abundance brings out your best.
For girls with dark skin tone, Vapour Organic Beauty Aura Multi Use Blush – Classic in Torch adds depth with brilliance.
Every skin tone and eye color can benefit from a pop of pretty purple color. Benecos Natural Liner in Violet is universally flattering and just right for the season.
Freshen up your look with a hint of floral shade on nails. Kure Bazaar Nail Polish in Fuji ought to do nicely.
