Purple Liner, Purple Lips Valentine’s Day Makeup
Every once and a while I get bored (who doesn’t), so naturally I play with makeup. I created this look a couple of weeks ago and despite feeling slightly like a Monster High Doll, I actually really liked it!! Lavender is more of a spring colour (maybe I’m jumping the gun wishing for warmer weather) but paired with dark grey on the lid makes it seem more winter appropriate. Something about this entire look felt vibrant, yet gothic at the same time. I thought it would be a great look to share for some daring Valentine’s Day inspiration.
Typically pinks and reds are associated with Valentine’s Day, but purple is totally an iconic colour as well (at least it’s the third colour I imagine when thinking about our national lovers holiday).
The star of this show is the NYX Macaron Lippie in Violet, which is…NEON! The formula is extremely creamy, packed with pigment and has a slight glossiness, but I did find it a little patchy to apply. It’s not very long-wearing either, but leaves behind a pretty, intense raspberry toned stain. Stepping out of my comfort zone, I felt very brave wearing the true purple lip colour. Yes – I wore it out of the house – albeit only to do groceries.
