When it comes to light purple lip color, such a specific look is not often found on the red carpet or sweeping celebrity faces on Hollywood Boulevard. However, contrary to popular belief, it is entirely possible to make light purple matte lipstick look trendy and chic without accidentally making yourself look like a recent drowning victim.
Whether you're more into pastels - such as lavender, periwinkle, or lilac - or whether a bold magenta suits you better, there are light purple matte lipstick colors out there which can suit your beauty needs. The trick is to remember that with purple lipstick, especially light purple matte lipstick, the look is so dramatic that you have to balance your entire ensemble around it - not just the makeup on your face.
Light Purple matte lipsticks work well on women with warmer, golden skin tones. This may seem contradictory, but the reasoning is simple: putting a pale purple lip color on a pale face, or a face with cooler undertones, can exaggerate your lack of sun exposure and make you look sickly. If you are fair-skinned and are determined to wear a light purple matte lipstick anyway, liven up your look with a hint of bronzer.
As with most bold lip color choices, eye makeup should be kept to a minimum. If you're designing a spring look, keep it fresh with beige, taupe, or peach-colored eye makeup. For a cool winter look, you can experiment with silver or grey shadow around the eyes (but try to keep it light and subtle).
Since most shades of light purple matte lipstick fall into the pastel category, a good daytime look would incorporate complimentary pastel colors into your outfit also (again, a perfect look for spring). At night, however, you're going to want to focus on darker colors, such as black, navy, or a deep chocolate brown to keep the attention on your pout and avoid an outfit/makeup clash.
Light Purple Matte Lipstick Benefits
Vessie Goldsmith Light Purple Matte lipstick colors are made with a highly pigmented color formula. This ensures that you receive an even distribution of rich, luxurious color every time you apply. The long-lasting finish makes it so that you won't have to reapply as often, guaranteeing that your lipstick will last longer. Also, don't be shy about mixing and matching - Vessie Goldsmith lip colors are designed to complement our exclusive line of Vessie Goldsmith lip glosses. So you can add an extra hint of moisture with a matching non-shimmer lip gloss, or create a unique color of your own design by applying a lip gloss of a different color.
Light Purple Matte Lipstick Directions
With any color of matte lipstick, you will want to prep your lips first with some exfoliation and moisture. This not only prevents your lips from developing a chapped, cakey look, but protects them from being dried out by the matte color.
How to prep: apply a moisturizing lip balm, a lip exfoliating scrub, or Vaseline to your lips. Let it sit for a few minutes while your lips absorb the moisture. Next, take a soft toothbrush and gently scrub your lips until all of the moisturizing agent and dead skin has been scrubbed away.
Apply a liberal amount of lip color to both top and bottom lip as desired. For best results, apply using a lip brush (available as a part of our Vessie Goldsmith Makeup Brush Set) to avoid a messy-looking or uneven application.
If desired, feel free to apply a complimentary long-lasting Vessie Goldsmith non-shimmer lip gloss over the base lip color. Be sure to finish the look with a matching lip liner.
