Purple Lips

I am so excited to share this mini Purple Lip tutorial with you all today, especially as I’ve always been a bit afraid of sampling purple tones on my lips!

But the moment I started experimenting with a few of my lip liners & Lipsticks I came up with the most beautiful creation! The purple lip colour I am going to show you how to recreate. ย I’ve always been scared of trying out purple, or dark purple for that matter as I was hesitant on how the colour would look against my pale skin, but after trialling it out, I do assure all the pale skinned beauties out there!!!


I think the colour is also perfect for the upcoming Autumn / Winter season. I love that this colour is so different to the typical nudes & reds/ pinks and adds a bit of drama to a makeup look without taking you so much out of your comfort zone!

To create my Autumn purple lip look I wanted to keep the matte theme alive & that’s why I mixed in an NYX Lipliner in Hot Cocoa 829 as my base & topped off the look with a pink nude MAC lipstick in Mehr. Both the Lipliner & the lipstick have matte qualities which give a long lasting & sheen free lip look! Perfect to create that dramatic Autumn lip colour!

Lots of Love <3

I am Serene L



  1. You pull it off beautifully! I want to try it but I’m scared. I guess in the comfort of my own home is the best place to test it. Very cool Serene!

    1. I was scared too! but believe me when you’re hidden away in your room & you’re testing out makeup styles, try this purple look & if you like what you see, I guarantee you, it will suit you :D…. & you’re going to like it. I road tested it out on the streets and I got a few compliments, I was expecting scary eye stares lool!

    1. Absolutely! hahaha the feeling of a perfect pair of lips is Priiiiceless ๐Ÿ˜€ …. I got out of my comfort zone & experimented a lil bit, so glad! Do you wear purple lips out & about? xoxo

      1. Not often, and when I do people definitely notice ๐Ÿ˜› And not in a good way I think, haha. But I don’t care. Makeup is personal, and if I like it I’ll wear it ๐Ÿ˜‰ x

      2. Hahahah! :p don’t care what people think! Love that attitude I really don’t pay attention anymore you’re right! Everyones taste is personal <3 you gotta rock it! ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxo

  2. You are honestly my saviour, I have genuinely been trying to figure out what purple mac lipstick to get but really was worried about my pale skin. You look absolutely amazing seriously love this colour on you xxx

    1. Thanks so much Jess ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you’ll get a lot of use out of this tutorial! I’ve been struggling with purple shades for the longest time, they usually end up too bright or too dark, so this is a good in between for us pale skinned girls! ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxox

  3. Babe you pull off these dark lips so beautifully- it’s my fave colour I’ve seen on you ๐Ÿ™‚ I should really try using lipliner when I wear lipstick as you do too. Hope you’ve having a lovely week hun

    1. Thanks so much Lovely, I was trailing out the lip liner & didnt like the initial darkness, so I decided to add a bit of pink to see if it would soften it up & it made it purple hehehe <3 xoxox ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. There’s no need for you to have afraid of wearing purple lips, you suit them perfectly – so gorgeous! I love how dark and vampy it looks, especially as it’s Autumn now ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Awww thanks so much Gabrielle you’re such a sweetheart! I love the vampy look too ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ’œ! Score for purple! I think more people should start rocking the purple shades ๐Ÿ˜† xoxo

    1. Hehehe, I still have a couple of reservations against orange! But that will be the next colour I’ll try & conquer ๐Ÿ™‚ <3 thanks so much Patricia <3 xoxox

  5. This looks so good on you! Really like the overall look, but I am still a little scared about going this purple myself…

  6. I love how you picked up a colour combination that I would never have thought of! It looks amazing on you, before I was a bit apprehensive but since I’ve tried MUR Rebel without Cause I haven’t looked back ๐Ÿ™‚
