The hottest lip colors for summer 2017 aren’t subdued—they’re bold and bright, as they should be. And they’re shine free. When you’re dealing with 80- or 90-degree weather (or worse), you don’t want to worry about sticky glosses, smudging, or color migrating beyond the lining of your lips—amirite? Here are the top three colors that are trending right now, and how to wear them all summer long:
A red lip never gets old. Shades of red lipstick with a matte finish have an instant skin-brightening effect. And unlike red lip gloss or sheeny reds, a flat red pigment will stay put, which is a must when the temperature rises. Reds look great during the day or at night, so wear this color with abandon. Civilized Cosmetics Liquid Lip Suede in Candy Apple, which are formulated with natural and organic ingredients, could easily become your summer BFF.
Hot pink for the summer? Yes, please. You can be sure that bright and purple-tinged pinks will be on trend for the many sunny days to come—especially at the beach, the pool, or a summer party. You’ll stand out in the best way possible. When wearing a vibrant color like CC Liquid Lip Suede in Pink Peony, keep the rest of your makeup to a minimum. A fresh, dewy face is all you need to complement such a bold hue.
This look is striking for summer nights! Whether you opt for an electric orange (hot, hot hot!) or a gorgeous reddish-orange, such as CC Liquid Lip Suede in Blood Orange, pair those tangerine lips with bronzed skin and full lashes, and you’re good to go. And, hey, if you don this look while picking up your laundry or browsing the aisles at Trader Joe’s, we’ll give you extra points for style!
