Summer is just around the corner ladies, and we have found you the most perfect lip colours for maximum fun in the sun. Whether you want to turn up the heat with a bold lip or stay cool with neutral tones, it’s time to switch your winter shades for something brighter, bolder and better.
Pink is such a fun colour and compliments all skin tones. This Pink Tulip Matte Liquid Lipstick is enriched with vitamin E and avocado oil to moisturise keep your lips smooth. The colour is so pretty and vibrant, it’s got summer vibes written all over it!
Red is an all-time classic. Winter, spring, summer or autumn, Mac’s Ruby Woo is one of the best red lipsticks out there and is a makeup bag staple. Its vivid, velvety and brings out your va va voom. It can brighten up your entire face; with both warm and cool tones which compliment all skin tones and its long lasting (it even stays on after meals). Perfect for a retro or girl next door look.
This shade of red is the iconic product that made MAC famous! Bold and daring, Lady danger is for the foxy lady in you. This shade is more orangey, compared to the classic ruby woo above. It applies smoothly with highly pigmented hues which make teeth appear several shades whiter. A summer evenings essential, guaranteed to turn heads and a great conversation starter at the barbeque!
Now, you can never go wrong with a nude, glossy lip during the summer months. If you can get your hands on Kylie Jenner’s lip collection, get Koko K. It’s a “pale pinky nude”, the lightest shade in the collection. But if like the rest of us, it’s sold out by the time you get around to ordering it, we have an alternative which is easily acquired as it’s now available in most boots stores. At a great price, NYX lip lingerie in Babydoll can achieve a similar nude lip and with warm peachy undertones, its perfect for summery minimalist look.
