Mindy Kaling has thrown all of her faithful followers a beauty bone when she posted to her Instagram her signature purple lip! Kaling has never shied away from color—both on the red carpet, and on her TV show The Mindy Project (bubblegum pink quilted Chanel bags, canary yellow jackets, multi-colored plaids, and animal-loving prints are only some of the adorably quirky getups seen on screen). Usually flaunting a smoky eye and bold, gem-colored lip—as detailed by her many too-cute selfies—many a beauty maven, or, at least, “Mindian” (what Mindy said her fan base would be called on The Mindy Project), would surely want to figure out the secret to that trademark purple pout, right? On her Instagram, Kaling said that her makeup artist Cindy Williams mixes a combination of Tom Ford’s Violet Fatale lipstick, $50 at TomFord.com, with Chanel’s Glossimer lip gloss in 175 Savage Grace, $29.50 at Chanel.com, for one of Kaling’s favorite lip looks ever.
Has Mindy’s spilled beauty secret made you reconsider trying out a purple-y, gemstone-hued lip (maybe this color would be the perfect amount of daring for the holidays?)? Or are you more of a cherry Chapstick girl?
