Lavender is it, y'all. Rihanna wore lots of violet-ish color to Coachella on Saturday night, leaving us in a purple haze. It wasn't just her fur coat that had us dreaming in purple—it was Rihanna's purple lipstick that really made us swoon. Purple is way more glam than grunge these days, and Rihanna is here to prove it.
We are used to wild style at Coachella and we are also used to Rihanna's edgy fashion choices, but never have we seen her so smitten with a particular trend. The "Bitch Better Have My Money" singer has been non-stop Instagramming her purple pout, and obviously, this is a train we need to jump on.
Every shade from neon violet to innocent, light lavender can be worn this spring. Obviously, lighter hues work well for the daytime while amped up pigments are perfect late-night party shades. Lipstick is a great (and temporary) way to walk on the wild side. If you aren't able to commit to purple, pastel hair or a fuzzy fur coat then lipstick might be your way to rock the style. You can create an ombre lip, a light shade with lip liner, or go all the way with a liquid lipstick.
