    I typically keep my makeup on the simpler side, but summer is the time to bring on the brights and I'm not one to sit out on a trend. So, this season, I’m trading in my go-to pink for something with a bit more whimsy: purple.

    When I asked some of my besties about their thoughts on purple lipstick, their responses ranged from "no" to "never," so I knew I was on to something good. The truth is that purple is surprisingly wearable and, yes, even flattering. With a variety of shades and textures at all different price points, anyone can be a lady who wears lavender (or lilac, or plum, or eggplant). So, whether you want to dip your toes in the water or take the full-on plunge, you'll find the purple shade of your choice, ahead.
