5 Lipstick Shades For Summer

Who doesn’t love the warmer weather? We bid adieu to winter coats, the days are longer and even the makeup we use also changes. Embracing a bolder lip colour all comes down to your own individual confidence, as well as your own skin tone. We share with you some of our favourite summer-inspired lip products which will surely ease you into the bright-lip trend!

Orange

Orange is definitely the new red! Not only are orange toned lipsticks easier to wear, but they suit almost every skin tone as well. Rather than their high maintenance counterpart, orange lipsticks generally don’t require a lip liner, and can be worn as a lip stain for a fun pop of colour.

We recommend: MAC Cosmetics Morange Lipstick, $36

Nude

Tone down your makeup look by applying a sheer, nude lipstick for a sultry disposition. There are many shades of nude lipsticks for fair, medium and darker skin which are really low maintenance and available almost anywhere.

We recommend: Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in Nude Pink, $11.95

Pink

We cannot resist a pop of pink colour for the spring season, and this is certainly no exception! The best way to wear a baby pink lipstick is by applying the product with a lip-brush. This will ensure a perfection application every single time, and will buff the product flawlessly into your lips.

We recommend: ModelCo Party Proof Lipstick in Parisian Pink

Coral

Go for a neutral makeup look with a dash of colour with a classic coral shade on your lips. Coral tones suit every skin tone, but look amazing on medium and darker skin when paired with a winged liner.

We recommend: Nars Lipstick in Casablanca, $35

Plum

Who said that darker tones were only reserved for the colder months? Choose a plum or darker shade which is of a sheer formula, since this will give your lips a pop of colour without being too harsh.
