Purple Love

The purple season is definitely upon us!!! This fall/winter purple made yet another appearance since 2007 specifically, plum. Lips, eyes and nails will definitely thank you when you try out this trending color.  When you think about it, its the perfect color, its dark enough to be a winter color, but light enough to make a statement.

Despite the misconception about purple, it works great on most faces; no matter your color. If you find the perfect purple shade you will look great and create a dramatic look and draw attention to your beautiful lips.

  1. Purple is very BOLD for me!! I would def rock the polish and would practice a purple palette on my eyes but the lips? I'm sure I wouldn't!

    Thanks for the product suggestions!

  2. @Tarsha it is a bold color. I love purples though! It's all about finding a complimenting shade.
