Purples plums and ultraviolet are all the rage this winter
Purples plums and ultraviolet are all the rage this winter
Ultraviolet has taken over the colder months as the chosen shade for the season. Purple has always been a popular choice for winter, especially for dark skin, but we’re especially loving the deep colour variations – namely grape, berry and raisin. Here are our favourite picks that celebrate the colour of winter, and 2018 in general. 

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid in Wicked Berry

It’s all in the name! This sinfully dark lip colour is intensely pigmented and is more on the velvety matte finish side. You’ll want to wear this one with nude eye makeup, so it does all the talking.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Psychedelic Sister

If you’re a sucker for some shimmery eyeshadow, this vivid purple simply pops on dark skin and brightens eyes when used around both the upper and lower lash line. The light-reflective pearls will make sure you get the most out of the weak winter sunlight.

Essie Nail Polish in Sexy Divide

Make your nails the centre of your ultraviolet look with this dark berry purple. What you’ll love about this colour are the small hints of shimmer that brighten up your nails and winter outfits. For maximum effect, keep your nails long and edgy so you enjoy putting them on display every time you grip your coffee mug.
