Today's look is inspired by the makeup the models wore in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2014. All the beautiful ladies had semi natural makeup with dewy and glowy skin.

How to: 4 Ways I Wear Purple Lipstick

Don't know how to wear a purple lipstick? Can't decide what purple lipstick looks best for your skintone? Or maybe you bought a purple lipstick and can't decide what eyeshadow look to pair it with? Have no fear! In today's video I show you four different lipsticks with four different eyeshadow combinations. From fair to deep skintones, looks for winter to autumn I have a makeup for you!

Off camera makeup:
    MAC Dipdown Fluidline
    NYC Taupe Brow Pencil
    MAC Girl Boy Brow Set
    MAC Quiet Brunette Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set 
    MAC Painterly
    Milani Matte Beige 01 Brow Highlight
    Revlon Lash Potion Mascara
    Physicians Formula BB Cream Concealer
    LA Girl Pro Concealer Cool Tan
    Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation
    Milani Multitasker Powder
    Urban Decay Toasted Baked Bronzer
    Wet n Wild Mellow Wine

During Winter, makeup enthusiast usually bust out their matte palettes and cool toned lipsticks. Now you might ask what is a cool toned lipstick? A cool toned lipstick is one that has blue undertones. These lipsticks look best on almost everyone and the blue undertones help make your teeth appear whiter! Which is always a plus. This first look has all that jazz and looks great on almost everyone!

Full list of products:
Lorac Pro Palette 2: cool grey & buff
Wet n Wild H20 liquid liner
Ardell Demi lashes
Dose of Colors Purple Rain liquid lipstick

This next look is super girly! The pastels make it perfect for Spring. The lavender shade of lipstick is perfect for someone who is just starting venture into purple hues. Its soft and not overwhelming and looks awesome on all skintones. Usually lighter colors like this tend to look ashy on medium to deeper skintones, but a little trick I like to do is pair a light lipstick with a darker lip pencil. Doing this trick helps tone down the lipstick and works better with my olive complexion.

Sugarpill Sparkle Baby Hotsy Totsy eyeshadow
Sugarpill Poison Plum eyeshadow
Sugarpill Sparkle Baby Frostine eyeshadow
Stila Turquoise Smudge Stick Waterproof liner
Sugarpill Sparkle Baby Candy Crush eyeshadow
Lorac Pro Palette 2: buff
Wet n Wild H20 liquid liner
Nigels Beauty Emporium 605 lashes
MAC Heroine lip pencil
Lime Crime Airborne Unicorn lipstick

This third look is my favorite! When I wear a bold lip I usually do a very subtle eye look with a pop of color on my bottom lash line. If we can go back to color theory for a minute purple and yellow are great complimentary colors. So when they are put next to each other they make each other stand out. This makeup looks best on medium to deeper skintone! It might be a bit overwhelming for someone with fair skin, but if you aren't intimated by this dark hue, go for it! At the end of the day makeup should be fun!

Full list of products:
MAC All That Glitters eyeshadow
MAC Cork eyeshadow
Wet n Wild H20 liquid liner
NYX White eye pencil
MAC Chrome Yellow eyeshadow
Pretty Zombie Cosmetics 3 Witches

alternative lip Dose of Colors Purple Fusion gloss

This last look is probably the most wearable. The color Rebel is warm and friendly on all skintones, a great starter lipstick for someone venturing into dark purple hues. Since Rebel is warm and on the raspberry side of the purple family, its easy to wear without it being overwhelming. When I wear a warm lip color I usually like to pair it with eyeshadows that also have orange and/or red undertones.
