It’s no secret that makeup mixed with humid summer air is a far from friendly pairing. We’ve all been through the less-than-glamorous experience of blotting foundation and carefully wiping seemingly “waterproof” mascara from beneath our eyes. Which is why lipstick is the holy grail of the summer face: It doesn't melt, won't run and can dress up a summer-casual outfit with the swipe of a tube. Here, our current favorite hot weather hues.
Amp up the drama in a playful way. If you’re a neutral-advocate, summer is your chance to take a risk on colors you may stray away from during the winter months. Have no fear, a berry-hued lip looks fabulous on any skin tone.
Let's face it, a matte lip has no place on your face in the summer. A gloss, though? Perfect all the time and in a million different shades from clear to crimson.
Something about a peachy pout makes us want to jet off to the tropics or sip rosé on a rooftop. This feminine shade comes in a variety of undertones, making it easy to find the best one for you.
In The Nude
If you’d rather let your outfit do the talking, keep it simple with a nude lip.
Fire Engine Red
Stash away the deep, sophisticated reds and opt for a firey orange-toned hue. For days when you’re ready to make a daring statement and turn some heads, a fire red is sure to do the trick.
