I know I already created two ultra violet makeup looks this year, but I’m completely smitten with this color and just had to create another! This time I went for a monochromatic ultra violet makeup look and I can’t get over how much I love it! I don’t necessarily have a favorite color, but if I had to choose I would definitely say it was purple. Fun fact, purple is the color most often associated with royalty, magic and mystery. And if that doesn’t intrigue you, purple compliments pretty much every skin tone. From warm to cool, light to dark, the color purple in general, and specifically this vibrant ultra violet shade looks great.
Whether you choose to wear it via clothing, accessories, nail polish or makeup I challenge you to give it a try!
