If you’ve been reading around here for any amount of time, you might know that I love lipstick. Particularly bright, fun colors, but really lipstick in general. It can add so much to a makeup look or even be the look all together! So I’ve picked out some of my favorite summer lipstick colors for you to give a try!
Summer Lipstick Colors you want to try!
Now let me be clear, there really aren’t any ‘rules’ to which summer lipstick color you can wear. However, summer is generally associated with bright, fun things, so why shouldn’t our lip colors be the same?
Red can be an intimidating color. One that you might think “it looks great on her, but I could never wear it.” Not true, ladies! There’s a red for everyone! When choosing the reds for this collection I chose brighter, orange-ish reds as opposed to deeper reds. It’ll brighten up your entire makeup look and will go with more all together.
I’ve talked about rocking a pink lipstick before and gave lots of options because man, it’s a pretty and makes a perfect summer lipstick color! I went with brighter pinks here because even though a subdued, pastel pink is pretty, I like to turn it up in the summer! Now is the time to try a bright pink!
I chose two orange lip colors, one is more of a true orange because that is a fun new trend and another one that’s a mix of orange and pink. Maybe for those ladies that are a little shy about trying an orange lipstick, this would be a good transition!
I had to add some nude lip colors because even during summer you might want to rock a smokey eye or fun, vibrant eye makeup. In this case, the nude lipstick would be perfect. You still want something on your lips, but you want your eye shadow to shine!
