How to Wear Purple: Plum Lip with Chaya Medina

How to Wear Purple: Plum Lip with Chaya Medina

Deep plum tones on the lip with a neutral eye look amazing on warm skintones (other tones can wear this as well, but perhaps go more deep berry than plum if that’s too vampy).

Here I used the brown color from Tom Ford’s Shade and Illuminate palette (which is actually a cream contour) on the eyes, but a regular brown cream shadow would do well in it’s place (add a tiny touch of a sheeny balm on top for that glisten). Pair this creamy nude eye with a deep vampy lip, here I used Dior Addict Lipstick in shade #987 Black Tie over a dark lip pencil like Make Up Forever’s Aqua Lip Pencil in 12C Matte Dark Plum. I intentionally left the lashes soft, with only the slightest coat of thin mascara, to keep the look more subtle. Too much mascara with a look like this takes it into different territory, so go easy and step back before you add more!
