But rules are meant to be broken, especially when wearing purple lipstick; so sport whatever shade makes you feel daring and dynamic.
How to wear purple lipstick?
Once you have selected your perfect shade, now it’s time to prep your lips. Before you apply your color, scrub and moisturize your lips to create an ideal base. Then line your lips with a tonal lip liner. What type of finish should you select: matte or glossy? Do you want to draw even more your attention to your lips? If so, then spotlight your lips with a glossy finish. Do you want to make a more subtle statement? Choose a purple lipstick with a matte finish.
