Gone are the times when red and pinks were the only lipstick shades that girls wanted in their lives. Women are ready to use a variety of colors on the lips and violet is a very acceptable shade already. It is better to use this shade in matte formulas, as it is bold and will look horrible, if it moves out of place. You will find gorgeous violet lipsticks from affordable brands like Maybelline and high end brands like Mac. You can also opt for a liquid matte lip stain, if you want your bold lips to grab attention throughout the night. A violet gloss on purple or violet lipsticks doubles up the fun and if you try it once, you won’t complain.

7. Highlighter

According to many expert makeup artists, you won’t end up looking like a joker, if you opt for a violet
highlighter. It is a very wearable shade for all skin tones and it brightens up the skin, along with highlighting it. You can use it on top of a golden highlighter to avoid any chance of looking ashy or chalky. You can also make it shine brighter with some Vaseline. Also, a holographic violet highlighter will definitely draw more attention than the regular ones. Use the highlighter on the cheekbones, eye brow bones, bridge of nose to make the look complete. As the highlighter grabs a lot of attention, it goes best with a dewy, nude look.

8. Primer and Color Corrector

I think all IMBB readers know how a primer is important to make the makeup stay on for longer. However, colored primers help in many other ways than that. Purple or violet primers help to brighten up your shallow skin tone. It illuminates the dull, yellow undertone and adds an overall glow. Purple color correctors or concealers are also available these days and they help in similar ways. If you want to hide your hyperpigmentation or dull skin issues, this color is ideal.

9. Highlighting the Hair
