Edgy Purple Lips Makeup Tutorial
I love purple and I’ve also had more than my fair share of purple lips, know what I mean? When I was just venturing into the edgy look, I asked a makeup expert friend of mine to share her best tips and tricks for sporting the bold lip and her advice was to keep the rest of your makeup as simple as possible in order to highlight the color.
In this tutorial, Elenore breaks the no eye makeup, purple lips rule and opts for a light wash of color across her lids. The result is an amazing all purple look that can be worn during the day or for an exciting night out.
Take a look below:
Are you ready to follow the steps to this simple eye and purple lips makeup tutorial? Let’s get started!
Apply face primer for a smooth finish. This step is essential if you want to achieve perfect-looking skin.
Use an illuminating cream to give your skin a healthy glow.
To get rid of the dark under eye circles, apply a color corrector underneath the eyes.
Since we’re going for a simple makeup look, BB cream will be better than foundation. BB cream is lightweight, tinted and offers benefits for healthy, clear skin.
To achieve flawless skin, apply concealer under the eyes, on the T-Zone and cupid’s bow. This will highlight those areas.
Now it’s time to set our makeup with a setting powder.
Using a contour stick, draw a line underneath the cheekbones to give your face more definition.
It’s time to bake! Apply translucent powder under the eyes, bridge of the nose, forehead, and cupid’s bow. After a minute of baking, blend the contour stick smoothly onto the cheeks, then blend the powder.
Reset this layer of makeup with your setting powder.
To give the face more structure, apply contour powder around the edge of the face, hollow of the cheeks, jawline, and bridge of the nose.
Use your translucent powder again to draw a line underneath the cheekbones. This line will accentuate the contour you’ve just created.
Fill in the brows. Keep it clean and natural looking.
Apply eye primer to prevent creasing and to extend the wearability of your makeup.
Pick a caramel brown shade and apply this on the outer corners of the crease, working your way inside.
Now pick a dark plum/brown eyeshadow and apply this over the caramel you applied earlier. Start on the outer corner of the eyes. The dark shade can be harsh so use some caramel to diffuse the darkness and blend properly.
Now apply a silver shimmery eyeshadow over the lids.
Apply black eyeliner on the upper lash line and create a small wing.
Using the same dark plum/brown eyeshadow, lightly run the color under the lower lash line.
Curl and apply mascara on the upper and lower lashes.
For a more dramatic look, apply your favorite false eyelashes.
Shape the lips with lip liner and blend. Apart from shaping your lips, lip liners also keep your lip color in tact and in place.
Now to the fun part: purple lipstick!
For some finishing touches, put some pink shimmery eyeshadow on the tear ducts as this will brighten the eyes.
Lastly, dab some highlighter (powder formula) on the high points of the cheeks and nose.
Now you’re ready for a night about town.
What do you think of this purple lipped look? After going through each step, I was surprised to see that the makeup still looks natural and simple. While purple eyeshadow and lipstick may seem like a lot, the finished result is completely, utterly awesome!
