When Summer comes I have a very simple makeup look. It starts with a BB cream that includes sunscreen, concealer, a bright blush, well defined eyebrows, mascara, and a fun pop of color on my lips! I’ve composed a list of my favorite summer lip colors for you! I am a diehard Mac fan but there are a couple of drug store lip colors in there that are really long lasting, a great price and very pretty!
Look how pretty they all look together!
I’ll start off easy with a light pink color that I found on someone’s fashion blog and immediately went out to buy! I love it. It’s a Mac satin lipstick in Snob. I love the 60’s vibe this color has to it. It’s a satin but it really does feel more matte to me, but doesn’t dry out my lips. This would actually be great if you wanted to wear a smoky eye with it also.
Next up is a retro matte color from Mac called Flat Out Fabulous. This is a really beautiful bright plumb color that I think would look great on any skin tone!
Up next is my favorite red, which I found when I saw a photo of Taylor Swift in a magazine and fell in love with the bright red lipstick she was wearing. This is CoverGirl in Flame. This goes on so smooth, doesn’t feel dry and will stay on the entire day. I’ve actually tried getting this off with a makeup remover wipe and it was still on when I woke up the next morning. Since it’s very long lasting have a careful hand when applying and make sure to stay in the lines!
My favorite drug store pink is Maybelline in Pink Pop. It can go on pretty sheer or heavy depending on how you apply it. It can look totally different! It’s a smooth lipstick that looks really fun and bright for summer but won’t shock you to death!
My favorite coral/red color is Mac in Vegas Volt. I love this lipstick and wear it a lot in the fall also. It’s more coral than red but you can make it look as dramatic as you want.
I’ve saved the brightest for last! I absolutely love this color, but it will scare off most of you. This is Mac matte in Candy Yum Yum. I think I saw this in a magazine or blog, cannot remember but I’m glad I found it! It’s very bright and super fun!
So that’s it, I hope you get inspired to try a fun and bright color for summer. If you do, post a photo of yourself showing off your #summerlips and tag us (@Splendry)!
