1. Candy Apple Red
Product Pick: NYX Velvet Matte Lipstick in Blood Love
Red lipstick is a staple beauty item all year round, and summer is no exception. This season, however, the crimson shade takes on a cool twist. Shake up your beauty capsule collection with a vibrant red that has blue undertones. The shade works with virtually every skin tone, and the look doesn’t require a ton of other face makeup—just let your lips speak for themselves!
2. Flamingo Pink
Product Pick: Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Crush
Summer is all about getting lit, so give that baby pink lipstick a rest, subbing it out for a high-octane hue. Go big with a neon pink inspired by our favorite tropical bird: The flamingo. Give our feathered friends a run for their money by rocking a bright pink lip at your next pool party.
4. Summer Vamp
Product Pick: Maybelline Lip Studio Color Jolt Intense Lip Paint in Berry Naughty
Yes, summer is synonymous with bright neon color schemes, but that doesn’t mean deeper, richer shades aren’t welcome on occasion. Include a vampy red lipstick in your summer makeup collection to leave people wondering who that siren is (you!) on those hot summer nights.
Product Pick: L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Lip in Nude
The nude lip shade is as classic as they come. If you’re looking for a more undone look, neutral is the way to go. But, don’t worry, nude is far from boring. Consider investing in a nude lip palette, and experiment with an ombré effect to keep things interesting.
