Purples – it’s a makeup artist favourite. Universally flattering on most skin tones, purples aren’t as dark and heavy as your blacks or greys, but aren’t as soft and see through as your pastels and neutrals. A good purple can be your best friend.
Try incorporating a shade of grape into your look whether for the eyes or lips. It’s really easy to do. Trust me! Our picks:
