When making a purl stitch first ensure that the yarn is to the front of the work.

Then insert the right hand needle into the front of the stitch from the back towards the front.

Using the right needle point, pull the loop of yarn through the stitch to make a loop and allow the old stitch to slip off the end of the left needle.
