Bri's Beauty Bites: A Perfectly Purple Pout

As a lover of all things fashion, beauty, and reality television, I was much obliged to follow the journey of twelve girls vying for the chance to be the new face of Ulta on Oxygen's newest show, The Face; a brilliant mash up of America's Next Top Model and The Voice. These amateur models are coached throughout the season by the industry’s finest mega models, Coco Rocha, Naomi Campbell, and Karolina Kurkova. Pretty intimidating right? The only thing I find more enjoyable than watching Naomi Campbell show off her “tough love” coaching approach are the outfit choices made by the high fashion coaches. Next week’s preview showed Ms. Rocha wearing spikes and a bright purple pout. Naturally, I had a mini heart attack when I saw the color and paused my DVR to get a better look (check out my sweet screenshot skills left). Her purple pucker was perfection and I’ve been on a hunt to find the perfect match every since.

For those daring enough to perfectly recreate the look I suggest MAKE UP FOR EVER’S Rouge Artist Natural in “N28 Purple” ($19). It was the only color that showed up as purple as Coco’s and has amazing staying power.  If you need to ease more carefully into such a daring color then try a nice berry stain like Revlon’sJust Bitten Kissable Lip Stain in “Crush” ($8) or Urban Decay’s Super-SaturatedHigh Gloss Lip Color in “Apocalypse” ($19). Both use the very popular crayon like applicator making the supermodel’s look even easier to recreate. Pair the lips with a subtle eye to make the color really pop! Say hello to Spring with a brand new color palette that will have everyone taking notice.
