As sunglasses, shorts and floral dresses get rummaged out from the bottom of draws and wardrobes, you know that summer is finally here. The main tell tail for me, that summer is here, is that I will be an oily mess. My makeup slips and slides all over my face in the heat, so I most often opt for a light base, which gives me the opportunity to balance it out with a bold yet pretty lip.
Bright or neutral, opaque or sheer, moisturising or matte – I have chosen seven lip colours to share with you that I will most certainly be wearing this summer. When choosing my summer lip picks, I noticed that a lot of brighter shades tend to have a sheen finish even though I personally prefer a matte lip for longevity. To combat this, I simply dust a loose, translucent powder over the top and voila – simple as that!
Nars Audacious Lipstick in Brigitte – A moisturising peachy pink which is very comfortable on the lips
W7 Chunky Lips in Glamorous – A pinky lilac lip crayon with a creamy formula
Too Faced Melted Metal Liquified Metallic Lipstick in Debutante – A metallic peach with gold flecks
Makeup Revolution Ultra Velour Lip Cream in Sweet Boy With a Big Mouth – A barbie pink lip cream with the most incredible smell of vanilla cupcakes
Benefit Hydra-Smooth Lip Colour in Wing Woman – A moisturising, sheer, peachy nude with gold flecks
Clinique Pop Lip Colour and Primer in Plum Pop – A dusky plum which is semi-matte yet moisturising
W7 Chunky Lips in Spontaneous – A pinky coral with a moisturising formula
I hope you’re all having a wonderful summer, whether you are at home or have been away. If I’m being honest, I’m already excited for Autumn/Winter, which also means the return of berry lips! Perhaps I will do an Autumn lip picks blogpost..
What is your summer lip pick? Which lipstick do you reach for time and time again during summer?
