purple comes in many shades so there's something for everyone. One of my favorites is Lilac. It's dainty and feminine. Mix it with other pastels for something a bit more funky.
this one is much deeper than lilac and looks great on lighter skin tones. It falls in the gem stone family.
this is your inbetween shade. It's not lilac and it's not amethyst. This color would look great on any skin tone.
magenta is the "loud" shade of purple.
you can create a purple version of the smokey eye easily by using an eggplant shade.
I love purple lipstick but like reds, you have to find the right shade for your skin tone.
