Lordethe newest teen sensation making waves in the music world, recently rocked a gothic dark eye and her signature deep plum lips on the "Late Show with David Letterman." The rebellious rocker is always wearing purple lipstick, so what do you think of the fall trend?  

During the singer's 30-minute-long set, we really got to see the power of purple in action. As the 17-year-old belted out her roster of hits including the cult favorite, "Royals," our eyes couldn't help but fixate on her pout. Her current lip color of choice is so versatile, wearable in tons of variations from girly light, to in-your-face violet, to deep eggplant, to vampy dark. The raven-haired songbird, with her powerful pipes, has honed in on an equally influential makeup fad that we love! 

But what's Lorde's secret to making the hue pop, and staying ahead of the color curve?

When wearing such a bold lip, it is important to make the rest of your makeup understated. The rock starlet always complements her fierce lipstick with barely-there mascara, winged eyeliner and a fresh face. We see that Lorde added a bit of shimmer to her fully coated lips for that extra wow factor! Layering a little sheen across her pout makes for even more eye-popping appeal, and softens up her look. Lorde's glam squad must have used a lip brush during application, and filled in her pucker using a pencil to create the shade's defined finish. 

But the "Tennis Court" performer added more statement-making edge, wearing bed-head waves and black clothing. With the daring fashion choice, the singer's pout pops even more, adding a dramatic effect to her fair complexion. We think the punk look fuels her mystique.
