Aside from the eyes, I’d argue that the lips are the most important feature on your face. As such, you have to treat them like the key feature they are. This means wearing colors that compliment you skin tone and hair color and those that are in season.
The best lip colors for this summer are girly and fun. Try one or all of these colors on for a nice change to your lip color routine.
- Tangerine- This color is the new red. Red works when you’re trying to evoke Marilyn Monroe, but tangerine works whether you’re dressed down or up, class or work, lunch or dinner. It’s the chicest color to wear right now, but make sure it has sheen to it. Matte colors don’t work as well.
- Soft pinks- There is a shade of pink that works well with every skin tone. You’ll have to do the legwork to find the one that works for you, but when you do, the benefits are evident. Soft pink is the ultimate versatile shade. If you apply it right, people might mistake the shade for natural lips. And there’s nothing better than having someone mistake effort for effortless.
- Lavenders- This one is tricky. When you think purple lip color, the first image that comes to mind is the extreme makeup of Mimi from The Drew Carey Show. But, if done correctly, light shades of purple like lavender can be chic and edgy. For this color, you have to absolutely try a few shades on before you make a purchase. This is not the color to go to Target, look at a shade on a shelf and buy. You’re asking for disaster. If you want to try this trend, you have to try many shades and get the perfect color for you.
If you’re not a lip color type person, at least keep your lips moisturized and well kept. No one likes to see unkissable, chapped lips. My suggestion: Get a tin of C.O Bigelow’s Rose Salve. It’s incredibly soft, and it adds just the right amount of gloss. Never go bear. Lips need love, too.
SIDE NOTE: If you’re unsure of what brand will give you the best coverage with the best feel and the coolest shades, I’d go with Revlon’s Lip Butter. It literally feels like butter. Ok, maybe not just like butter because I’ve never spread butter on my lips, but it’s what I imagine colored butter might feel like. Come on, don’t be so literal.
