Get your lips buffed and primed and ready to be shrouded in rich color to commemorate the date. Here are the best lipstick colors to celebrate National Lipstick Day!
This warm browny mauve shade is silky, soft, and sexy. It works on most skin tones and is the perfect shade for finishing off a smokey neutral eye look. Because it’s a lip crayon it is naturally emollient, comfy, and easy to apply right from the tip.
Wear with: smudgy brown kohl, lots of mascara, chiseled contour.
When it comes to red, look no further than Mami, the truest red in the softest, plushest matte bullet formula. Wear with a simple wing to celebrate National Lipstick Day in classic glam style.
Wear with: fresh skin, a sharp wing, mascara and a little flush on the cheeks.
This warm rosy pink brings so much life to the face! It’s almost MLBB but has a little somethin’ somethin’. A beautiful shade that works in all seasons but looks great against a tan.
Wear with: a bronzed, hazy eye look with a touch of gold highlight on the cheeks. But really, this baby looks good with almost any look.
May the Quartz be With You
This shade is perfect for purple lovers who seek that sultry, moody, dark lip. It’s an amethyst shade but with a touch of smoke. This is the perfect lippie for standing out, especially in Summer when such shades are a little less expected.
Wear with: keep the tones simple to let the lipstick shine without competition. A slick wing or smudged eye and fluttery lashes would be killer.
This bold and joyful matte peach shade is stunning on almost all skin tones, especially during the hazy heat of summer. It has a little 1960s vibe to it with that pastel matte aesthetic.
Wear with: a slick cut crease, falsies, and fresh coral blush to lean into the 60s vibe. It’s also great with glowy bronzed skin and a few slicks of mascara.
Before applying your color, prep the lips to ensure they’re soft, plump, and ready.
Give the lips a good scrub to remove any dead skin and buff off those older layers. Then, add a light layer of balm or oil and let it sink in as you apply the rest of your makeup. When it’s time for your lippie, gently wipe off the excess balm or oil to reveal soft, supple lips.
