When looking for a plum lipstick, you need to know they come in various shades, which include dark plum, deep plum, light plum and pink plum, plum matte lipsticks.
Here are a few tips and tricks on how to wear the plum lipstick
Know Your Limits
If you have really thin lips, it isn’t recommended to use dark lipstick. Dark colors minimize whereas light colors are going to volumize. A dark shade on already thin lips will make them look thinner, and that can make a face look older, since lips typically lose volume as we age. If you have naturally voluminous lips or regular lips, go for it.
Keep It Balanced
The key to doing a dark lip color is making sure the rest of your makeup is really in harmony with that lip. Keep it fairly minimal on the rest of your face. Using a similar shade on your lids or cheeks can help your lip color harmonize with the rest of your makeup. If you’re wearing a plum-colored lipstick, a purple eye shadow can help tie the look together.
Choose A Shade That Complements Your Skin Tone
As with any makeup color, your complexion determines what will look good on you. You can warm it up or cool it down according to your taste. If you know you look better in cool shades, opt for a blue-based, berry color. If your complexion is warm, choose a hue that veers toward brown.
Use A Lip Liner
Lip liner is an absolute must with dark lips. Any saturated color, if it’s not even around the edges, it looks crazy. Use a pencil to perfect your shape; the waxes in the pencil will also help prevent color bleeding.
Try A Trendy Shade
