Just like fashion, summer beauty trends are far different from every other season on the calendar. In fact, you’ve probably noticed that once June 20 rolls around, everything gets brighter. For instance, hair is lighter, nail shades are more vibrant, and of course, lip colors get more colorful and fun. If you’re also looking to make a statement this season, turn to bold summer lip products for an unexpected pop of color.
With all the different formulas on the market these days, there are basically unlimited options for the look and feel of your lip product. There’s your liquid lipstick, which is your best friend during happy hour or dinners (see: Fenty’s Stunna Lip Paint). Of course, you can never go wrong with a matte lipstick, particularly from Charlotte Tilbury. For those who like a subtle finish (with extra moisturizing benefits), a lip oil is for you. And, while you might have put your glosses to the side over the past year (because, you know, masks), it’s time to pull them back out because the experts are predicting the return of the glossy this summer. Just swipe on your favorite shade at the park or out to dinner with friends for an effortlessly chic look.
