Much like nails, summer lip colours are tend to be much bolder and brighter than their pastel spring counterparts. Summer's a great time to rock a bright lip, and the choice of shades is endless. Here are my top picks for bold, bright lips:
Seventeen Stay Pout Lipstick - Make An Entrance
Orange is always a winner during summertime. A little more daring than red, and definitely not for the faint-hearted, orange is a great way to perk up a summer makeup look. Rock this red-based orange lipstick from Seventeen with minimal eye makeup and a dewy base, and you're good to go!
Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick - 05
If you're not daring enough for a bright orange, and would rather play it safe, then this Rimmel lipstick from the famous Lasting Finish range by Kate Moss could be the one for you. Pink is of course, easier to pull off than orange, and this pink is definitely bold and bright enough for a fresh summer look.
L'Oréal Glam Shine Balmy Gloss - Dare The Dragonfruit
If you're more of a lip crayon fan than lipstick, then you should try the Glam Shine Balmy Glosses from L'Oréal. 'Dare The Dragonfruit' is a gorgeous purple with a beautiful shimmer running through it. Applied once and you get a lovely, sheer wash of colour, but it's easy to layer it up and go for something really bold and beautiful!
Maybelline Colorsensational Shine Gloss - Cashmere Rose
This lipgloss from Maybelline is definitely the safest of my picks. Although it's not truly bold or bright, it is a lovely shimmery coral gloss for those who like to keep things simple. It looks great when paired with a brown smokey eye - subtle, yet really pretty!
