Bright Lipstick Picks for Summer

 One of my favorite looks to wear during the summer is a simple monochrome outfit paired with a bright lipstick. I think the pop of color is fun and unexpected when most people go for a minimal summertime makeup look. Here are three of my favorites - an orange, a pink, and a red - that I think would flatter everyone.

1.) NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick - A bright shade that manages to be wearable despite its orange color. I like wearing it with a bold brow and big lashes but minimal face makeup; it looks fresh and put together. The NYX matte lipstick formula is great as well, as it doesn't dry your lips out and goes on smoothly.

2.) Maybelline Rebel Bloom Lipstick in Coral Burst -  This shade goes on full-color as a bright, pinky-coral, and makes a huge statement. It looks great with dewy summer skin and a wash of a light shimmery color on the eyes. Plus, this line of lipsticks has the prettiest packaging in the drugstore with a lilac lid.

3.) L'Oreal Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Red Lipcolor in Julianne's Red - By far my favorite red lipstick! This collection is really great because it allows you to find the perfect red for your skin tone. Julianne's Red is a beautiful blue-based red that makes your teeth look extra white, but it isn't so extreme that it looks odd on warmer skin tones. I like wearing this with a mini black cateye for a vintage-inspired look.

What are your favorite lipsticks for summer?



  1. I love red lips, it just makes the whole look more polished and sophisticated. From these three I think the NYX matte is my favorite :)

    1. I agree with you on red lipstick! The NYX lipstick is amazing; it looks scary in the store but it turns out a lot more wearable than you'd expect.
