Yes, you can wear purple lipstick from 40 onwards but the shade and the way you apply it are key. Colours such as plum, grape and raisin work well. These shades are dramatic yet elegant.
Opt for velvety textures, as these are matte but won’t dry your lips, or satin textures that offer moisture without too much shine.
Feathering can be a problem when you get older, and it’s especially noticeable with darker lipsticks. Always apply lipliner before lipstick.
