We are loving the colour purple right now at bb! As we get closer to hitting the real depths of winter (brrrrrrr!) it is the perfect shade to liven up a monochrome outfit, without looking out of place. Here are our top 10 purple picks for right now!
#1 Purple Nails
A popular polish colour trending in the bb office right now is any and every shade of purple. Whether your preference falls with berry, or magenta, in deep, or even glittery tones, there is a purple polish to suit your pinkies and each finger in between!
As far as colourful eye makeup goes, purple is a great option as it is very flattering on green, blue and hazel/brown eyes - you could say it is almost universal! Rather than going all out and covering your entire eye in the shade, we love subtle hints of the hue when used very close to the lash line. Grab yourself a great Eye Crease Brush (we love e.l.f's which is only $3.99) and apply the colour close to your lash line, both above and below your eye. Try the B by Bloom Col.lecta Eyeshadow Duo in Taj Mahal for a vibrant purple, which also comes with a paler, pinkish hue too - and can be snapped up for just $9.95 from the bb online store!
For a more precise purple eye statement, you can't go past a great pencil liner. We think the Bourjois Smoky Pencil 72 Dark Purple is a great buy, both for its highly pigmented colour and its stellar price! Use on your waterline to make the whites of your eyes look bright and fresh!
# 3 Purple Hair
Prince sang of 'Purple Rain' but here at bb we are more about a purple mane! This bold colour choice for your locks is definitely a risky one, but if bright 'dos are your thing, we think a violet shade is supreme! If you aren't so into colourful locks, why not try a sweetly shaded hair tie instead? For ties that won't break your strands (or your bank considering such great quality) you can't go past Twistband. For a lovely violet shade, we like the Twistband Headbands Solid 3 Pack, $12.95, in Karen, which features 3 headbands in lavender, lilac and plum. Perfect for keeping your hair off your face - throw one in your gym bag so you are never caught short with your long hair again, next time you want to work out without a pesky mane in your eyes!
And there you have it! Our top 3 purple picks for right now! Which one is your fave? Do you love purple too?- Lauren
