It can be a pretty scary thought when it comes to buying makeup and lipstick only to realize that it wasn’t what you expected to be. Many of us don’t have confidence in cheaper brands just because they usually turn out to be a waste of money. [Read more…]
Now that Spring has sprung the fashion runway has graced us with some of the hottest lip shades of the season. It’s time to pack up your neutrals and unleash the attention grabbers from your collection. Here are some of the lip shades that have been causing a frenzy this season:
This is a fun and vibrant shade that is bold, bright and loud. It just screams ‘welcome spring’ and looking forward to summer. For darker skin tones, you want to stick with a red orange and lighter skin tones a more peachy orange. Get it on Amazon.
This is definitely a shade that is more flirty and playful. The purplish-pink tones will compliment any skin tone as purple is known to be a universally flattering color. This is a shade that almost all women will already have in their lipstick collection so don’t be afraid to sport it. I, myself, have quite a few that fall under this category. Don’t judge me!
Get it on Amazon.
Now, there are different shades to plum, the darker and mysterious shade and the lighter shades which I would say looks similar to a fuchsia but with less pink, if you know what I mean. It’s electrifying and would instantly take your look to a whole nother level.
Get it on Amazon.
And last but definitely not least, the shade red. Well did you think we would leave this classic off the list? Shame on you! We all know that red is here to stay and it would be a crime if it was forgotten. Matte red seemed to be the dominant shade this season. It’s a very responsive shade that automatically commands attention. Every woman should possess a tube of red lipstick, even if not for everyday wear, for those special occasions where you wanna make a powerful statement. Get it on Amazon.
How I make my summer color work is by pairing my lipstick with a colorful top, scarf or even with my nail polish and it instantly elevates my outfit. One of my fun shades is the NYX Summer Breeze, which is like a bubble gum pink that goes perfectly with my skin tone. It is matte and may be slightly more drying in the winter. To help with that dryness, I use Vaseline before I apply my lip liner and lipstick. You can also apply a topcoat of lip gloss on it as well for extra moisture.
Winter is not one of my favorite seasons of the year, however that doesn’t stop me from sporting some of my fun summer shades to brighten up my look and my day. I don’t tend to follow trends when it comes to lipstick shades, I just practically use what I have and make it work for me. One of the things that I stay consistent with, however, is using my lip scrub, especially in the winter time.
How do you wear your summer shades in winter? Let me know. XOXO
