Have you ever found yourself stuck doing the same type of makeup no matter what event it's for?
Well, summer is the perfect time to start switching things up! An easy way to create a change in your makeup routine is to add colour to the lips. This is because it doesn't take much skill and is a versatile option. As much as we all love the perfect nude lip, summer is a great time to start experimenting with colour.
So, what kind of colours would be a good fit? Summer is all about bright, vibrant makeup so choose colours that compliment your skin and stand out. From high streets to department stores, makeup brands all over the world have introduced funky colours for the summer season. Why not take advantage?
For those of you who are comfortable with using strong shades, MAC Cosmetics have an excellent range of exciting lipsticks. For example Candy Yum Yum is a great fluorescent pink that suits almost any skin tone. Also, Heroine is a really unique purple matte shade that’s excellent for creating statement makeup. Alternatively, anyone looking for a cheap bargain should look into NYX lip creams available for international shipping.
However, if you’re not someone who likes to wear very strong colours, you could try a sheer finish instead. Lipsticks with a cream sheen finish or even lip glosses are a great way to add a hint of colour to the face without it standing out.
Here are a few examples of how you can wear a bold lip on a night out or during the day at ease.
