Summer! That always-enchanting season we look forward to year after year. Even freckled, easily-burnt, not-made-for-heat gals like me can appreciate the balmy sweetness of the season.
Make your summer days all the brighter with an in-your-face pop of bright lipstick.
These are our top picks for the best bright lipstick shades to wear this summer!
Peach is such a stunning lip shade on so many skin tones, especially when paired with bronzed skin and gold accents on the eyes and cheeks. My favorite peachy shade is Peach Bellini – so saturated and rich, right?
Tip: Wear this stunner as a blush for a monochrome effect. I take a tiny bit of product on my finger and press onto the apples of my cheeks. Stay-all-day blush!
Pink lipstick is welcome in my rotation any day, any season, but especially during summer. The brighter, the better! My top pick is B-Day Kisses, a bright, Barbie-esque pink fit for any poolside jaunt.
Tip: create a stain by pressing a small amount of B-Day Kisses into the lips and top with a SPF balm for a more casual and protective look for daily wear.
Feeling rebellious? Want to shake it up? Purple, purple, purple! Like a cold grape soda on a sweltering day, Shady (cool, opaque purple) is refreshing and oh-so-stylish.
Tip: pair this shade with nothing but dewy skin and plenty of lashes against bare eyes.
The Brightest Orange
Orange deserves more love in the lip world, methinks. The warm vibrancy of orange just spells “fun” to me, like that one friend who finds a party wherever she goes. I adore Crush, an electric orange that pops.
Tip: adjust the texture and shade of your orange lippie with a gold-flecked gloss. I do this when I feel like my lippie is starting to wear but I have no time (slash can’t be bothered) to reapply.
