Private: The Purple Makeup Trend Isn’t Going Anywhere For Autumn/Winter 2022

Seen on eyes, cheeks, and lips in modern and Y2K-inspired makeup looks throughout summer, purple is unquestionably one of the top 10 makeup shades of 2022. Purple will continue its reign through autumn and winter in various iterations, from smoky mauve and vibrant violet for the eyes to luxurious plum and berry hues for the lips and cheeks. In short, the purple makeup trend isn’t going anywhere for autumn/winter 2022. Continue reading for inspiring ways to incorporate this regal colour into your makeup looks this season.

Amethyst Eyes

Want a soft-glam autumnal look? Amethyst eyes will give you a dazzling look that’s still wearable for the daytime. Soft, shimmery lilac or violet swept over the lids will put eyes with green, brown or yellow tinges on top of their game. Don’t hesitate to add a doll-like definition to your lash line with winged eyeliner.

Pressed powder shadows aren’t the only option for creating amethyst eyes. Liquid or cream shadows can be intensified for added drama or kept fresh and low-key like Hailey’s. A gentle sheen over the eyelids, paired with a glossy lip and flawless skin, looks effortlessly stylish.

If you’re all about a bold eye, why not try a wash of purple with a rich matte finish? If you’re unsure where to begin, pinker-hued purples, such as plum, look great on warmer skin tones. Those with cooler undertones can wear blue-toned purples like violet and lavender without fear of being washed out.

We’ve been fans of purple lids since Viseart released their Viseart Étendu Eyeshadow Palette in Violette, which makes wearing purple-haze eyes a breeze. This palette offers a variety of cool-toned, purple shades and finishes that you should keep on hand for head-turning looks (à la Jose Corella) this season.

It’s all about plums and berry shades this time of year. So it’s not surprising that plum lipstick is having its moment. If you shy away from deep-hued lipstick in case it washes you out, makeup artist Huang Vanggo has the answer: a sweep of plum-hued shades (like burgundy or pink) will enhance radiance and create a more cohesive makeup look.

Bieber’s plum pout is as autumnal as it gets. With a slicked-back bun and natural-looking dewy skin, the look nails effortless elegance. The key to pulling off an impactful lip look like this is to keep your lips hydrated and exfoliated on a regular basis.

Mauve lids are a great alternative to traditional purple if you’re not a fan of the intense colour. For a cool take on a classic look, use mauve instead of black for the perfect smoky eye.

So, what exactly is monochrome makeup? “It’s a gently unified beauty aesthetic, with one tone, or colour family, weaving its way throughout your beauty look to make it feel more cohesive and pulled together,” says Glamour magazine. It’s a co-ordinated soft-glam look that still feels relaxed. ”
