Bold and beautiful lip colors for summer
Summer is (almost) here and now is the perfect time to experiment with new lipstick shades. This season, it’s all about bold lips with striking colors. Think 1990s. Bold, surprising, glossy and brilliant.
We’ve compiled four lip colors to try this summer. Pick the trend that best complements your skin tone, or find an offshoot of a trend in your palette.
Berry and plum
People with cool skin tones will be happy to hear that purples are back in the form of plum lips. Lorac’s rose berry colored Ingenue is a beautiful, rich variation. Lorac Ingenue Breakthrough Performance Lipstick, on sale $10, lorac.com
Orange-red is this season’s red. It’s fresh, cheerful and flirty. However, these shades are most flattering for warmer skin tones. Try Revlon’s Moon Drops for a glossy look with a bold orange tone. Revlon Moon Drops Orange Flip 710 Creme Lipstick, $7.19 on sale, drugstore.com
Pink-red is the cool skin tone variation of orange-red, and another interesting way to do red this season. Look for this sexy and fun spin-off at Walmart. Covergirl makes a surprisingly perfect fusion in its Garnet Flame tube. COVERGIRL 300 Garnet Flame Colorlicious Lipstick, $5.39, walmart.com
Who says summer makeup has to be soft and subtle? Look for lipsticks with very dark undertones. Best to pair these with understated eyes to let your lips demand all the attention. Be sure to find the shade that complements your skin tone. Black cherry tends to work well for warmer faces and black purples are for the cooler skin tones.
