Kelly Osbourne presents her lilac side cut to best advantage with an updo and kissable lips

While purple hair is unconventional, it certainly passes the everyday test! Especially in the soft colour variants. You think the hair colour is striking enough so you have to omit makeup altogether? No need, since the right accents on lips and lashes result in very special styles guaranteed to elicit envy!

For a magical elven look for instance, simply complement lilac hair with a discreet eye shadow with glow effect and a cool berry hue on the lips (such as pearly pink, fuchsia or blackberry). A dream! With a pastel purple hue in your hair, you can send even stronger wow signals using makeup (like Kelly Osbourne in the photo). Avoid applying too many different colours to your face, otherwise things get excessively wild. Cherry red, kissable lips and a bold eye line in classic black are perfect!
