Purple is such an iconic color. It comes in an unlimited amount of shades and goes with so many different colors. Who doesn’t love it?! What better way to incorporate this gorgeous color into your everyday life than with your makeup. Purple makeup sounds a bit scary, but it’s way easier to wear than you may think.
Purple Eyeshadow Palettes
The product that probably pops into your mind first is eyeshadow. There are so many palettes that provide a beautiful purple color story. One of our favorites is the Amethyst Obsessions Palette from Huda Beauty. The shades featured in this palette are extremely wearable if you’re looking for something different but don’t want to go too far out of your comfort zone. The purples in this palette will also look amazing on those with deeper skin tones.
If you’re looking for something a bit more affordable, Juvia’s place always has your back! The Violets Eyeshadow Palette features six stunning purple shades. One of the major differences between this one and the Huda Beauty palette is that the Juvia’s Place colors are a bit lighter, going toward a more lavender color palette. If you’re up to trying something new, we definitely recommend you check it out!
Neutral shades and purples go hand in hand! Your one-stop palette for all these shades and more is Morphe’s 35C Everyday Chic Artistry Palette. You can find light purples, dark purples, glittery purples… all the purples your heart desires! Creating a look with this palette is effortless with all the neutral transition shades that it has as well.
Eyeliner For Your Purple Makeup Look
Eyeliner is the easiest, and one of our favorite ways to add some color to your makeup look. Purple is the perfect color to add on top of a neutral look to spice it up a bit. Applying an eyeliner pencil to your lower lash line is the hands-down easiest way to throw some color on. We recommend the Slide On Eye Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner from NYX. This pencil is super creamy, easy to apply, and has great pigmentation. Brown and purple are a match made in heaven, so if you have brown eyes, we highly recommend doing this to help your eye color pop!
As we all know, graphic liners have been a huge trend recently…why not add some purple onto that! Lime Crime’s Venus Liquid Liners have a tiny brush that will make your wings and lines precise. They have it in two purples, a light purple in the shade Lavender and a deeper, vivid purple in the shade Wisteria. Whether you use these liners alone or together for a purple masterpiece, the creative possibilities are endless.
If you’re new to the makeup or eyeliner world and don’t quite want to spend almost $20 on an eyeliner, you should try out Wet N’ Wild’s Megaliner Liquid Liner in the shade Electric Purple. Their brush tip is super tiny so you won’t be struggling and the color payoff is amazing. Spending less doesn’t mean you’re risking the product’s ability!
Lipstick Need Purple, Too!
If you haven’t tried purple lipstick, you are missing out. The color purple comes in so many different shades, making the lipstick possibilities endless. The Suede Matte Lipstick Lightweight Vegan Lipstick from NYX alone has at least 5 purple shades that are so beautiful and would look amazing on so many skin tones. If you’re wanting a straight-to-the-point purple, Subversive Socialite is the shade for you.
Another fun, bright purple lipstick comes from one of our top liquid lipsticks, Anastasia Beverly Hills. The shade Vintage is described as a deep orchid. This color is just stunning, you have to go try it for yourself!
The final brand we recommend for a purple lippie (although there are probably millions more out there) is the SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick from Maybelline. They have a few different purple shades, but if you’re looking for a deep berry-toned purple, Composer is the shade to get.
Purple Highlighter Options
The final product we have to top off your purple makeup look is a purple highlighter. The shimmer once melted into your skin gives you a gorgeous glow with subtle color. Our girl Rihanna has a Killawatt highlighter duo with some purple tones in the shade 7dayweeknd/Poolside. They are absolutely stunning and currently on sale so it’s the perfect time to give it a try!
Another one that we have been dying to try but has been sold out since its launch is R.E.M Beauty’s Highlighter Topper in the shade, Miss Neptune. The formula of this product is amazing and we have no doubt that the color would look just as good!
