BEAUTY BAR: Purple is the New Pink

BEAUTY BAR: Purple is the New Pink

Colored hair is all the rage right now, ranging from muted and dusty hues to bright and flamboyant “unicorn hair.”  One of the common colors trending right now is purple. Here we see a casual yet dressy school outfit with purple being the pop of color.

Having colored hair is perfect for a more dramatic eyeshadow look.  The boldness of having colored hair tones down and mellows out what would be considered a dramatic eyeshadow look. Her purple gradient hair matches her eyeshadow without it being too intense because the colors flow seamlessly.  With a more natural tone lip color, her makeup look is complete. Dramatic, sweet, and overall a perfect look for a school day. This warm toned purple/burgundy eyeshadow shade is also trending, with many companies putting out eyeshadow palettes for this trend. To add a little extra, she is wearing layered chokers, both in the color scheme of her outfit. The three main neutral components are her utility jacket, booties, and the thin, long wrap choker. This neutral tan color flows well with the bright blue of her jeans and the basic white. Stacking the chokers helps to add more dimension in terms of accessories. The chokers also bring your eyes to her face. The darker burgundy lace choker adds a feminine touch and helps you focus on the color in her outfit. The lower cut of the white shirt on the other hand, also gives the long choker room to add to the outfit. All of the pops of colors here worked well with the neutrals and helped to make her hair and makeup the stars.
