Violet Rouge, the new makeup boutique on South Lamar, is bringing back the glamour of "putting our faces on."

_Editor's Note: This shop is no longer in business_

When hastily applying mascara during your morning commute, it's hard to remember that we used to beg to be allowed to wear makeup out of the house.

Violet Rouge, the new makeup boutique on South Lamar, is bringing back the glamour of putting our faces on. With decor that echoes Hollywood Regency, Violet Rouge is decorated to the nines with antique vanities, vintage chairs and charming magazine clips from the pages of fashion magazines past. Owner, Samantha Packham, has stacked the shelves with a variety of product lines that you won't find anywhere else in Austin, such as 3 Custom Color, Face Atelier, Girlactik, Cake, Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and many others.

Put the brakes on products and colors that don't quite pass inspection, and go full speed ahead with a look that will stop traffic.
