Mauve lipgloss can give natural lip color a hint of attitude or create a polished, classical look with a deeper color. It is a great versatile color and super simple to wear on any occasion. Check out the hints below to achieve the perfect mauve lipgloss look.
The best part about mauve lipgloss, and why so many people and celebrities wear it, is that it matches any skin tone because it matches the natural color of lips. People generally have a vague idea of what the color “mauve” really is. It is a lavender-lilac color with a little brown, pink and purple mixed in that mimics the color of your lips. Keep this in mind when shopping for mauve lipgloss; for example, buying a pinker mauve will bring out the natural pinks in your lips and brighten them up. A darker brown will give you a more formal look, and a purple could be used to subtly match an outfit.
If you wear lip liner, apply it first in a matching hue and then tap the gloss across the middle of your mouth using your fingers or the wand. This will give you plenty of coverage without the extra goop that makes the lipstick seem clownish and overdone.
All Natural: if you are a minimalist or want something to wear everyday that is understated yet classy, purchase a mauve color that is slightly darker than your own lips. This will deepen the hue of your lips and make them rich with color and shine. For a fun, flirty look, go for something with more pinks or purples that will play up the lighter hues in your lips. In other words, it will amp up the natural lips to the supernatural.
The Classic: Pick a deep, rich color if you want to a have professional, polished look. This looks great for work or going out during the day, and gives you just enough flare to make a statement. The warmer colors always give a more formal look, so if you want something a little lighter pick a color with more pink to it.
The Evening: Pick the darkest shade you can get away with for going out. The mauve color is always classy and stylish, and if you add sheen to it you get a nice shimmer to liven up the lips. Remember warm versus cool colors; the browner tones will be more serious, while the pinker tones add freshness and light. For a dark shade with a hint of playfulness, go for something with purple undertones.
Wear it with a natural colored blush and neutral tones on the face. The colors should not stray too far from the color palette of the lipgloss. Mauve plays up the natural tones of your own skin, so stick with those hues when applying the rest of the make-up. Browns, dark purples, ambers, light pinks and peaches all work well.
Just one mauve lipgloss gives you a go-to color for dozens of outfits and occasions. It is a must-have for the person who appreciates a sleek natural look.
