Bold Lips Don’t Lie
Prep Your Lips
Before you start adding neon shades to your lips, you need to moisturize! Bright colors are fun, but they can be unforgiving on dry flaky lips. Add a quick coat of the Nivea Lip Butter from Target, and your lips will be ready to go!
Look #1: Neon Fuchsia
The Maybelline Lipstick in Fuchsia Flash is quite possibly the girliest color of all time. It’s a bright neon fuchsia that’s bursting with personality, and the smooth and creamy texture applies evenly in one coat. Even though this color is an in-your-face burst of color, it’s a lot easier to wear than you might think! The blue tones in this lipstick are flattering on most skin tones, and they also make your teeth look whiter. I’m going to be wearing this stunning shade all summer long, and I think it’s going to look even better once I get a tan!
Look #2: 2-Step Ombré Pink
If you can’t decide which lip color to choose, use both! I created this simple 2-step ombré lip by lining my lips with L’Oreal Glossy Balms in Pink Me Up, a bold magenta, and filling in the center of my lips with the shade My Babydoll, a light pink. The pencil design of the L’Oreal Glossy Balms couldn’t be easier to use, and the two-toned look instantly makes your lips look larger!
Look #3: Bold Rose
As much as I love a classic red lip, I’m digging the Maybelline Lipstick in Vivid Rose for hot summer days! This lipstick is the perfect midpoint between red and pink- just like a rose! The bright and feminine color is sophisticated while still being fun, so it’s equally appropriate at a fancy cocktail party or a quick shopping trip with your friends.
Look #4: Bright Plum
I used to think that purple-toned lipsticks were just too crazy for everyday life, but that was before I met my beloved NYX Matte Lipstick in Sweet Pink. This comfortable matte lipstick is a bright plum-pink color that instantly livens up your complexion. I’ve been reaching for this show-stopping shade nearly every day this month, and I don’t think our love affair will end anytime soon! Don’t let the bold color scare you. This lipstick is the perfect purple-pink lipstick for you!
No matter which bright and bold lipstick you choose to wear this summer, you’re guaranteed to add an instant boost of personality to your outfit! Make sure to keep the rest of your makeup light and fresh, so that it won’t clash with your statement lip. If you’d like to copy the makeup look I have on today, simply shop the look below.
