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.
