Today's question is "how do I wear violet lipstick".
Violet lipstick is a very bold, but stunning color. I like to soften it up a bit with a clear shimmering lip gloss. I'll show you how it looks when you apply the two together. As you can see the violet lipstick is a vibrant color. By combining the lipstick with a soft gloss you'll get a bit of a softer version that's perfect for summertime. It's a really beautiful way to get that look of the violet lipstick but make it appropriate for summer when everything is sheer and soft.
And by applying it with a little bit of a gloss you're also able to mix it with a dark smokey eye, which we've used right here. You can build the color to create the intensity that you need. And there you have it. By mixing a little bit of a clear shimmering lip gloss you soften the look of violet lipstick and make it perfect for summertime when bold bright colors are in.
