Summer is here! Officially. I always go back to a bright lip for summer because it’s so easy. A quick slick of colour and your face suddenly looks a whole lot more awake. Even if that’s the only makeup you’re wearing, a bright lip adds a nice touch when the sun is shining. This year, I keep gravitating towards three Bright Lipstick Picks; every shade is perfect for perking up the complexion in a flash. Oh, and they’re all matte so they’re not going anywhere…
Charlotte Tilbury The Queen
Kicking things off with a punchy little pink from Tilbs, inspired apparently by Queen Lizzie herself. It’s a rich and rosy mid-toned pink that manages to suit a whole host of skin tones. It’s a bright pink that manages to look a little more elegant and sophisticated whilst still being fun to wear. It pretty much does look sumptuous and jewel-toned, as the name would suggest. The formula is one of my favourite mattes around – rich, saturated and long-lasting.
If you’re looking for the perfect orange-red, then look no further. I know, I am slightly cheating on my beloved lady danger, but this one is worth it! I never tend to pay much attention to smashbox, but their lipsticks are fabulous. It’s super matte, super bright and super fun. Now that my hair is currently looking a bit blonder, I keep reaching for this fiery shade. Perfect when paired with a black dress for summer and with some massive sunglasses.
MAC Men Love Mystery
I can’t remember the last time I bought a MAC lipstick, but I had some empties to exchange and this purple-pink caught my eye. Enough pink in it to stop it from being unwearable but enough purple to make it a little more interesting. I mean, everyone knows what the mac matte formula is at this point so we all know it’s pretty great for staying in place all day. I’m going to be wearing this one with pink blusher and loads and loads of black liner.
