Summer Beauty Goal: Find the Perfect Shade of Lipstick

During both winter and fall, doing my makeup is much easier than when it’s hot and sunny. Fall tolerates heavier makeup, darker shades of eyeshadows and lipsticks, smokey eyes and all other make up trends I’m sure you’d all love to wear much more often in the summer. Though, we can’t because most of the times, all that makeup just melts on your face, so it’s a good option to go with something much lighter on your skin and to find some brighter shades to accentuate your looks.

This morning I wanted to go and grab a drink with my friend, so while I was getting ready I was completely out of ideas on which lipstick shade to choose. I’ve realised that I haven’t quite updated my makeup bag with summer friendly shades and neutral shades that look good with pastels and pinkish dresses. So, that inspired me to create this post, since I’m sure many ofyou are struggling with the same issue these days.

Electric Pink

This shade is so full of life! Make sure to go minimal with the rest of your makeup because this beautiful shade is really enough for itself. It’s bold, it will make you feel confident and you will look gorgeous. A summer must have!

Peachy Princess

This is the shade I always enjoy wearing – no matter the season! Peach always looks girly enough and goes well with most clothing pieces. It’s not an aggressive color and you’ll feel pretty without even noticing you have lipstick on.

On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink!

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday.. Whatever day it is, pink lipstick will be a perfect choice. The only thing that you must keep in mind when wearing a pink lipstick is to keep it very simple on the eyes – use only mascara (and eyeliner, if you must) and some highlighter because you might risk looking tacky if you go too dark on the days and put too much eyeshadow. Soft pink will usually tolerate more makeup than other darker shades of pink, though.

Red for a Perfect Nightout Look

I usually don’t feel very comfortable wearing red lipstick in the summer, epecially during the daytime. However, some girly summer nightouts look much better with that red lipstick, so you don’t have to completely kick it out of your makeup routine.

Extra tip: For longer lasting color on your lips, use a lipliner in the same shade and apply it before lipstick.

What’s your favorite summer shade of lipstick?

    I wear all colors during the summer…orange, pink, purple, red…you name it! I’ll even rock a dark lip from time to time, no need to wait until fall. I know I’m a rebel, haha! Quick question: what is that MAC lippie you shared above? It’s such a lovely pink!

    Red is always my favorite and go to color!! Rain or shine, winter or summer. I like to wear a brighter shade of red in the summer though. Pinks and nudes are always good too. I’m really loving peach these days and electric pink too!

    I love Stila, Mac and bareminerals for lip colours. Plus Rimmel for a cheaper drug store brand. I love wearing red lipstick anytime, it makes me feel more awake when I am tired. Pink and coral colours are great for a more subtle, sweet look.xx

    For summer, I love the peachy or coral shades! The only thing that sucks is that I get pretty tan during the summer so sometimes it clashes with coral, but I generally am a big fan of them on others!

    A great summer lip color is always a brighter version of what you usually wear. I like bright red and I love the selections you have picked out for the summer and I agree that Pink is really and important this year.

    Nice colors. In the summer I prefer to wear the light tonality lipsticks. The electric pink one is a gorgeous idea

    Very nice options, I prefer pink and peach shades for the summer, also, I don’t like heavy make up at all 🙂 So I’m completely agree with you.

    What beautiful colors! I’m very intrigued by that electric pink; I think it’ll look so amazing for summer! Typically I stick with rose colored lippies but it would be nice to step outside of my comfort zone and try something bold and new.

    I actually have the electric pink liquid lip from Maybelline! It’s a perfect shade for a party or a summer festival 🙂 I love the other colors you suggested!
