Do: Try a matte lipstick or stain for a sexy, retro look. It can be more subtle, so if you’re trying to ease your way into the shade, a matte finish is a great way to do so.
Do: Go multidimensional. Purple lipstick can make lips look smaller than they actually are, so dab a touch of gloss or pearly white eye shadow into the centre of your lips, a laKelly Osbourne, to make them seem fuller than ever.Don’t: Neglect the inside of your lips. Using a lip primer before applying lipstick will ensure your hue will stick where it needs to, so you don’t and up with a distracting uncoloured patch like Angela Simmons.Don’t: Go for a severe look anywhere else. A tight ponytail, huge hoop earrings and a dress in a matching hue are not doing JoJo any favours. Trust us, if you’re going for purple, you want your lips to be the focus of your ensemble.
