How to choose the right one for your skin tone, and knowing how to wear purple lipstick the perfect way is the actual beauty task here. Purple is not like other vampy lipsticks such as dark blue lipstickswhite lipstick, yellow and green lipsticks. Therefore, you will need to be so careful with it to avoid creating that scary effect common during Halloween.

  • Purple Lip stick for Medium Skin Tone: The best purple shade lipstick for girls with medium skin tone is that with some warm yellow undertones.
  • Purple Lipstick for Fair, Pale or Light Skin Tone: If you are a fair skinned girl, avoid dark purple lipstick or any dark shades of purple. Instead, the best purple lipstick shade for fair skinned women is that with pink or blue undertones. Bright purple will be appropriate for fair skin. Select appropriately depending on your purple undertones.
  • Purple Lipstick for Dark Skin Tone: Black women can also pull off purple or violet. Just like brown lipsticks that suit black skin perfectly well, any shade of purple lipstick will look great on dark skinned women. From deep purple lipstick to lilac, all purple lip colors will look great on dark skin tones.

Since purple is really a bold color, you must be wondering about how to wear purple lipstick. Well, other than the tips on how to choose the best purple lipstick above, you need to learn how to wear purple lip color without overwhelming the rest of your face makeup.

All Red Everything!

BEST RED LIP SHADES FOR YOUR SKIN TONE

 

PORCELAIN: This ultra-light skin tone with cool undertones looks best with a cool red with hints of plum, but looks daring with a warm red.

 

FAIR: This light skin tone with cool undertones also is most harmonious with a cool red, while a warm red is bold.

 

BISQUE: This pink under-toned skin color looks best with a cool red, but can also pull off the warm red.

 

BEIGE: This skin color with yellow undertones is most harmonious with a warm red, but can wear a cool red too.

 

OLIVE: Warm reds look best on this skin color with green undertones, but as you can see, cool reds look pretty too.

 

TAWNY: Again, warm reds are the way to go for this gorgeous skin tone, but don’t let anyone tell you you can’t wear cool reds too.

 

CARAMEL: Cool reds are wearable but warm reds are gorgeous on this skin tone.

 

ALMOND: Warm reds are pretty but cool reds are meant for you.

 

BOTTOM LINE: I prefer the harmony of matching lip tones with undertones; I feel like when you walk into the room, everyone will think “wow she looks so gorgeous” not being able to pinpoint why, but every now and then it’s fun to draw all the attention to your lips by letting the red make the statement
