Mauve might be the color you have to Google to remember, but once it becomes a part of your beauty routine, you’ll never forget it! Not only does it have the ability to make your thin lips resemble those of a certain reality TV star (you know who!), but it also flatters every skin tone and eye color! This pale purple shade is taking over spring trends— so, don’t be the last one to give it a try. But, before you do, just be sure you do it the right way!
A Mauve-toned blush like Maybelline Face Studio Master Glaze in Make a Mauve is a fun way to play up cheeks, without taking the classic pink or peach route. Go light on the apples of your cheeks for a natural flush or work color up your cheekbone a bit for a mod and sculpted appearance. Keep the rest of your makeup light and sheer, so as not to go mauve overboard!
A mauve manicure goes with anything and everything! You never have to worry about it clashing with your outfit, makeup, or hair color (yes, girls think about this!). And similar to nude, mauve elongates your fingers for perfectly dainty digits!
