The colours you should be wearing on your lips this summer.

When it comes to lips, I love a big, bold statement colour. I’m not overly confident when it comes to eye makeup (and I am definitely no pro when it comes to chic eyeliner flicks)

Urban Decay Vice Comfort Matte Lipstick in shade Tilt – £17.00

I love an orange lip. When I keep my eyes and cheeks natural, I like to vamp up my lips with a bright orange product. I think they work really well for day time makeup when you’re wearing shades of blue – think a Columbia blue and white striped shirt with your favourite Levi 501’s and comfy Birkenstock’s (some tortoiseshell sunnies and a woven straw bag would also look great, by the way). Orange lips are your perfect accessory, and this creamy matte lipstick will keep your lips coloured and moisturised all day long.

Buxom Wildy Whipped Lipstick in shade Dominatrix – £14.00

If you’re going to wear a red lip, you need to go all out with it. This deep, sensual colour is so versatile, making it easily wearable from day to night. Shopping trip? Throw on your favourite floral midi dress and trainers. Date night? Dress it up with a trusty LBD and heels. It’s a go-to for all occasions. Buxom’s Dominatrix Wildly Whipped Lipstick is highly addictive with a lightweight whipped texture that glides onto your lips for a soft matte, medium-to-full coverage colour.

MEMI Satin Luxe Lipstick in shade Date Night

If you don’t have some kind of pink in your lipstick collection, what’s the point in said lipstick collection? I love a pink that isn’t too pink. It’s cute, a little different from a good old nude but also subtle enough to get away with if the rest of my makeup is bolder. MEMI’s silky, satin lipstick leaves a wash of creamy colour that is smudge proof and ultra nourishing, plus it’s completely cruelty free and vegan!

Nudestix Cream Lip & Cheek Pencil in shade Whisper – £14.00

Everyone needs a good nude lipstick in their makeup bag, it’s a solid, staple item. There at your every need, you can’t ever be without it. What’s more, this one doubles up to be a cheek pencil too! The perfect minimal makeup look combo. This multitasking pencil with ultra-creamy soft colour and liner for cheeks and lips, it’s extra creamy lip colour, lip liner, lip balm, and cheek colour pencil is super soft and offers intense pigment payoff and smooth blendability for a soft natural look. Don’t go anywhere without it – it’s sure to come in handy at all times.
