With clean, dewy skin, untouched eyes and groomed, brushed-up brows, the only thing left to do to get that perfect summer look is add colour to the lips
Orange is hardly new on the colour wheel, but it is in the spotlight this summer, adding spice to a pared-down look. Tone is everything – pick a bright tangerine for full effect. A matte texture modernises any shade and, for lipstick longevity, line and fill the lips with a similar colour liner.
A bright pink does amazing things for pale skin tones. When wearing such a statement colour, keep the rest of the face absolutely bare, with the exception of a slick of mascara and a dab of highlighter along the cheekbones. Don’t be afraid to find the perfect shade by mixing different pinks together with a lip brush.
Every season red lips come out to play – and this summer is no different. Start by applying your chosen red to your lips from the middle out. Next, define them and increase longevity by using the matching liner after the lipstick. Apply it around the edges of your lips, concentrating on your Cupid’s bow. Finally, lightly press your lips together to press in the colour and use an earbud to clean up any mistakes.
