Bright Summer makeup Look

 

Hi everyone! Its been some time since I did a colorful look so I thought of creating something with one of the lipsticks I’d purchased from ColourPop recently – Ultra Matte lips in shade Lychee. Its a vibrant pinky-purple shade, a little out of my comfort zone, but such a gorgeous color for the spring and summer! I paired it with a sparkly, pastel eye and I love how the overall look turned out. I talk more in detail about each of the products used in the tutorial video. Make sure to check it out to see how I created this look!

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Matte Sculpting Matte Lipstick : Extrovert

 

Have you ever tried Purple Lipstick? I’m quite experimental when it comes to lip colors but if its one shade that intimidates me, its Purple! It can be incredibly tricky to carry and can make you look really dull if not worn right. I generally stick to safe, pink tinged purples but when I came across Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Matte Sculpting Matte Lipstick in Extrovert, I had to give it a try!

Would you wear purple lipstick?

 

I generally shy away from purples for lips but with all the buzz around Radiant Orchid this year, I’m trying out more shades from this end of the spectrum! My current favorite is NYX Slim lip pencil in Purple Rain topped with a sheer pink gloss (worn below) like NYX Mega Shine lip gloss in Tea Rose. I quite like this combination – it looks bold but not unflattering!

What is your take on purple lipstick? Do you ever sport purple lips?

How to wear Purple/Violet Lipstick : Tips & Tricks

 

Color generally doesn’t scare me but if its one shade that I find difficult to pull off – its a purple/violet lipstick! Unless they’re packed with a lot of pink/red undertones, purple lip colors tend to give me a dull, corpse-bride look. I’ve seen a lot of women, especially older women, wearing purple lipsticks and it gives them the same dull look. But with a few simple tricks, you can make purples work for you!

The lipstick I’m wearing here is Violet Crush by Estee Lauder. It is part of the Limited Edition Violet Underground collection (Fall 2012). Its a gorgeous intense violet lipstick with a bit of pink. The formula is very luxurious – rich pigment in a smooth, buttery soft formula and a feather light feel. (full review coming soon!).
