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.
