Stay bold and hot this summer with these 8 lipstick colors on trend

Stay bold and hot this summer with these 8 lipstick colors on trend

Whatever you have to say becomes infinitely more interesting when you have the right lipstick to frame it. So how are you going to make your statement this season?

Lipstick is an interesting tool in your makeup kit. Trends come and go, but lipstick can be spot on by bucking all trends or by holding true to them.

Take this year’s emphasis on natural hair and makeup, for example. Add a bold and very unnatural lipstick color, and your look is taken to fabulous new levels. You can also go with a nude lip color, and play up the great features you were born with.

The following hues are all the rage, which means you’ll need to pick up at least one of them for fear of being left behind. Beyond that, it’s one of the least expensive ways you can update your look and stay cutting edge.

1. Soft pink

Look for a pink that reminds you of flower petals, as it’s a gentle color that reflects mother nature at her best, yet it adds just a little blush to your lips. This is an excellent color for the season because it’s low maintenance and blends nicely with your natural lip color.

Soft pink will also match just about anything, and it walks that fine line between a made-up lip and a natural looking one.

2. Nude

Speaking of a natural looking lip, you should have at least one nude-colored lipstick in your kit. You can opt for one that looks most like your natural skin tone or one that has a little more color in it, but the ultimate goal is to look like you’re not wearing lipstick at all.

3. Gloss

Lip gloss is back, and it’s back with a vengeance. The clear gloss look is a perfect way to play up your natural, carefree look with just a little wet-kissed gloss.

Tinted gloss lipsticks add some playful excitement to any look and make the perfect lip for date night.

4. Clay

Imagine a windswept desert with a vivid orange and pink sunset. This is the sort of clay effect you’re going for, not a grey and cold lump of clay on a potter’s wheel.

This rusty pink clay tone gives your lips a nod to nature while still bringing a lot of sweet drama to your look. It’s pretty irresistible on all skin tones and easily goes from day to night.

5. Berry red

Red is always a good look, but the darker tones are best left for winter while summer inspires berry undertones. Look for lip color that celebrates the season by pulling some berry colors into the mix.

This is one way to add oomph to your natural palate. It gives the eye a focal point and instantly adds excitement with just the right kiss of color.

6. Coral

All kinds of coral colors are a hot hit in the summer. No matter what the trend is, there’s always a coral to match.

Coral is a natural color for Summer and makes the most of this hue. The problem is, there are so many different shades of coral, from soft pink to deep orange that it can be hard to find the right one.

Try them all until you find something that truly flatters your skin tone, and stock up because you’re never going to want to run out.

7. Orange

Speaking of oranges, it’s a hot trend, and it’s not for a tame soul. This season bright orange lipstick is making a statement.

Keep your face palette neutral and muted for day and evening, but pop on some orange lipstick and your nighttime look is spot on. There are a variety of orange shades out there this season, make sure you give at least one of them a try.

8. Purple

Okay, you don’t have to go with neon purple or even an ultraviolet shade, but you’ll be seeing those two hues more often. If you want to ease into the purple lipstick trend, try a pink shade with just a touch of lavender to give it some purple appeal. If you’re ready to go all out, then purple is the way to do it.

It takes all the natural trends and smashes them with one swipe across your lips. It’s exciting, it’s eye-catching, and it’s bound to get you all the attention you can handle.

Final thoughts

This season the lipstick trends are all over the place. Starting with a safe and popular neutral effect created by a nude lipstick or a gloss.

If you want to get a little more daring, pinks, corals and clay colors have a natural base that is welcoming to a pop of color. If you want to go all out, then berry red, orange, and purple give your lips an overhaul that’s bound to get noticed.

To stay on top of the trends this summer, we suggest picking up a nice neutral shade, a bold night-on-the-town color, and then a tinted gloss that you can use over other shades to create a customized look that lasts.
