Call me predictable, but I’m totally one of those women that lives for a bold Summer lip. While I will wear a bright lip year round, there’s nothing quite like a bright, poppy lip and sunkissed skin when it’s warm out. It just puts you in a better mood, you know?
My absolute favorite Summery lip is Indie Flick, a matte lipstick by NYX. I know most people like to switch to glosses and balms when it’s warm, but I wear matte lipsticks all the time because I don’t want to constantly have to reapply it. It’s a bright, orangey red shade that instantly brightens up your face. It’s especially pretty on warm and olive toned skin, and you can do a bronzed, but minimal makeup look with it.
Products I’m wearing:
Foundation: Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless with a drop of their Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation
Concealer: M.A.C. Pro Longwear Concealer
Powder: Makeup Revolution Lace Baking Powder
Bronzer: M.A.C. Mineralized Skinfinish in Dark Deep
Highlight: Maybelline FaceStudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter
Brows: M.A.C. Eye Brow Styler (Spiked) + Glossier Bow Brow
Mascara: (Glossier’s Boy Brow (I left my mascara in another purse but this came through!)
NYX’s matte lipsticks are highly pigmented and don’t dry your lips out, but they WILL stain, so make sure you pay attention when applying, and try not to get wild when you remove it (nobody wants to look like The Joker, lol). If the shade feels like it may be too much for you, they have a matte lip cream called Morocco that I wear as well that’s not as bright, but is still really pretty.
