Purple Lips

I am so excited to share this mini Purple Lip tutorial with you all today, especially as I’ve always been a bit afraid of sampling purple tones on my lips!

But the moment I started experimenting with a few of my lip liners & Lipsticks I came up with the most beautiful creation! The purple lip colour I am going to show you how to recreate.  I’ve always been scared of trying out purple, or dark purple for that matter as I was hesitant on how the colour would look against my pale skin, but after trialling it out, I do assure all the pale skinned beauties out there!!!


I think the colour is also perfect for the upcoming Autumn / Winter season. I love that this colour is so different to the typical nudes & reds/ pinks and adds a bit of drama to a makeup look without taking you so much out of your comfort zone!

To create my Autumn purple lip look I wanted to keep the matte theme alive & that’s why I mixed in an NYX Lipliner in Hot Cocoa 829 as my base & topped off the look with a pink nude MAC lipstick in Mehr. Both the Lipliner & the lipstick have matte qualities which give a long lasting & sheen free lip look! Perfect to create that dramatic Autumn lip colour!

  1. You pull it off beautifully! I want to try it but I’m scared. I guess in the comfort of my own home is the best place to test it. Very cool Serene!

    • I was scared too! but believe me when you’re hidden away in your room & you’re testing out makeup styles, try this purple look & if you like what you see, I guarantee you, it will suit you :D…. & you’re going to like it. I road tested it out on the streets and I got a few compliments, I was expecting scary eye stares lool!

  2. Me too, love purple lips. I rarely use lipstick outside the comfort of my own home, but the feeling of a perfect pair of lips are priceless. Have a great day 🙂
