Plum Makeup Ideas That Will Match Your Winter AestheticDecember 06, 2019
Monochromatic Plum Makeup
Of all the plum makeup looks, the monochromatic variation is one of our favorites. It has a beautiful, sultry vibe to it and is easier to create than you think. All you need is to sweep your favorite plum eyeshadow shade all over your eyelid and lower lash line, and complete your look with a bold lippie. The Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Moshpit is a perfect plum match.
If you don’t want to commit to the full-fledged plum makeup look, you can’t go wrong with trying a pop of plum gloss. Keep your face makeup fresh, dewy and light, and then opt for a glossy plum lip. It’s edgy, captivating and a great entry point into this regal hue. Another plum lippie that’s on our list of favorites? The Maybelline New York Superstay Ink Accept a Dare Crayon. Top it off with the Lip Studio Shine Shot Lip Topcoat and you got yourself a lewk.
Take your monochromatic look up a notch by throwing in a plum winged eyeliner. Pro tip: The key to making monochromatic makeup look more cool-girl and less clown-ish, is keeping the tones the same throughout the face. So, be sure to balance your purple eyes and lips by using a blush that leans purple, like the Maybelline New York Fit Me Blush in Plum. Trust us when we say, it makes the whole look appear more effortless.
Slay us all with a plum makeup look that has a bit of shimmer and shine on the eyelids. The NYX Professional Makeup Mystic Petals Eyeshadow Palette has some beautiful sparkling options that you can use on there own or layered to create a beautiful multi-dimensional effect.
For the bold, adventurous, and honestly, ones with a lot of time, create this gorgeous plum smoky eye for the ultimate makeup glam. It has the allure of a traditional black smoky eye without feeling as overwhelming, if that’s not your vibe. To recreate this look, we recommend starting with the Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Backfire. The brand has loads more plum options that are sure to help you achieve this really pretty eye look, though.
