Unexpected Lip Colors you Should Try

┬áLet’s talk lips! This Summer, I’ve chosen my favorite lip colors to wear and I’m sharing those with you! Now, I don’t believe in “rules” per se, but when it comes to warm weather and simple makeup, a lip color that can stand on it’s own is necessary.


My Number one pick for this summer is the perfect shade of orange. The orange lip trend has become huge, from neon orange to Creamsicle pastel orange there’s a shade for everyone. My favorite complementary Orange lip shade is by Bareminerals. They have beautiful creamy shiny marvelous moxie lipsticks and while they are all good my absolute favorite is called “Light It Up”. Find the shade at Sephora or Bareminerals.com. Pair this shade with a classic winged liner or a gold wash of eyeshadow on your lids with mascara and you’re ready to go!


My next pick has to be the neutral but very bold Kylie Jenner lip trend. Keep in mind that skin color really plays a big role in choosing the right lip shade for you when it comes to this look. I am medium skin tone so for me the perfect straight out of the tube neutral lip color is LORAC cosmetics matte lipstick in “CEO”. When I wear the shade on my lips I love to play up my eyes. This neutral lip allows you to work with any shade you want on your eyes and really make them pop! Pair this lippie with a cranberry or burgundy smokey eye for a night out!


Last but not least is purple, purple lipstick is not for everyone. I have to say I get so many compliments when I wear purple lipstick though, it’s such a pretty shade and really makes your lips stand out. Pair purple lips with lilac or silver eyeshadow for a fun youthful look. My favorite purple lipstick right now is also by LORAC in the shade “Free Spirit”.

So there you go, three unexpected out of the box lipstick suggestions for you this summer try one or all three and let me know how it goes!
