Ultraviolet Beauty Vibes!
By Frances Feldmann, Mommy In Los Angeles® Magazine Beauty Contributor & Founder, On Location Glam®
I think Pantone’s 2018 color of the year Ultraviolet is making a pretty strong arrival. There’s still a few days left before the New Year’s Eve Festivities but I’m seeing purple everywhere… including makeup shelves at beauty stores.
Purple has power. And if you’re hoping to channel your ultra cool, ultraviolet mom side, I found half a dozen beauty products to assist you in that arena.
Here are my favorite ultraviolet-influenced makeup products and how I used the ultraviolet color scheme on a model recently for a photo shoot. The dramatic look of the model pictured above with a purple rhinestone choker is fun and intense…but I still prefer the soft and romantic look:
Butter London in Mauvelous
Inspired by ULTRA VIOLET, the PANTONE Color of the Year, Mauvelous is a mauve crème nail polish in a fashion-size bottle. This varnish is quick-drying, high gloss, and chip resistant.
Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Lavender Jam – Electric Blue-Violet
Swipe on bold, creamy lip color with Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche. Created and crafted by hand, Bite’s small batch, low-heat process preserves a balanced blend of lip-quenching nutrients, vitamins, and omega oils that are essential for achieving healthy-looking lips. Made with 12 edible oils and triple milled pigments, this lipstick provides saturated lip color with weightless coverage and a citrus flavor made from fresh pressed fruit.
Tom Ford Private Shadow in Purple Reign
To Tom Ford, every detail counts. This gorgeous and groundbreaking eye shadow delivers rich color and amplified shimmer in a purple reign. Encased in a luxurious clutch-sized mirrored compact, each single shadow becomes an expression of unadulterad color. Highly pigmented, longwearing, crease-resistant.
Soothing Silk Body Butter
A body moisturizer designed to hydrate and soothe even the most sensitive, irritated skin. Rich in natural Japanese indigo, a legendary botanical prized for its ability to soothe irritation and support skin’s natural healing abilities. The blue hue of this formula varies as a property of natural Japanese Indigo and disappears upon application.
Lola Eau de Parfum by Marc Jacobs
This perfume is a modern free spirit with an irresistible attitude. Lola is an intoxicating swirl of rich layers, wrapping the skin in sensuous florals blooming with a signature note of fuchsia peony. Playfully alluring and irresistibly tempting.
