Pick the right purple hue
The most important of all of the tips on how to wear purple lipstick is to take time when choosing a colour that works best for your skin tone. Ladies with warm skin tones look better with a lipstick that walks the fine-line between a red and a purple, whilst ladies with cool skin tones can take their pick amongst cooler purples hues.
Keep the eyes simple
This simple, well-known tip for wearing dark lipstick does not need a lot of explaining. Opt for nicely lined cat-eyes, or give a natural looking smokey eye a try.
Perfect your base
One of the things usually associated with a purple lipped vamp look, is velvety flawless skin. Contouring, blush and highlighter – all of the things you would normally use to highlight your features are minimal, executed to perfection and most importantly matte. When you wear bold lipstick keep the rest of your face neutral and shine-free, as it gives the whole look a more refined finish.

The importance of good blending brushes
A good quality blending brush will make a WORLD of difference when blending out eyeshadow! How to use a blending brush: Use a windshield wiper motion back and forth to blend using a light hand. Don’t press too hard when blending out eyeshadow as you want to achieve a soft, blended look. You can also apply eyeshadow using blending brushes into the crease or outer corner. Use more than one blending brush for different shades so you don’t mix colours!
Blending / transition Colour
A blending or transition colour is an eyeshadow used in between the crease colour and the brow-bone in order to create a gradient between colours. This colour helps other colours blend more seamlessly into one another. For example when using a black colour in the crease you would use a lighter grey colour on top of the black and blend up so it looks like the black is fading into a grey creating that gradient effect.

Line your lips
If you want to fake full lips, line your lips just slightly outside your natural lip line with a lip liner in your desired shade. This will make a huge visual impact, after you're done lining around your lips, take Twist Up Lip Liner and fill in the rest. This trick helps your lips look one even colour.
Apply a sheen finish lipstick
Stick to neutral colours and avoid dark shades when you want a full-looking pout. Darker colours will make lips appear smaller. Our ‘suits all skin tones’ favourite for full-looking lips? True Colour Lipstick in Succumb.
For the finishing touch, if you're feeling extra-ambitious, add a highlighter to your cupid's bow. Applying a light-reflecting highlighter to the peaks of your pout adds an extra bit of depth, creating the illusion of fuller lips. Precious Metals is a gorgeous multi-purpose highlighting palette.
