I haven't always been a fan of purple. Growing up, purple was the evil stepsister to my beloved hue, pink. It was the biggest competition in the "favorite color" category for all little girls, and since I played for the other team, I steered clear of purple for many years. But now, I am a back-stabbing wench because not only do I crave purple in my fall wardrobe, I'd also like to wear it on my face.
Plum pouts are popping up like Starbucks in the suburbs (pre-recession, obviously) and I am on the bandwagon. With minimal eye makeup the look is perfect for a night out.
