Summer 2014 Lipstick Colours

This summer is all about simple details that will really make you shine. Bold lipstick is one of them – the perfect way to add high impact with just little effort. In summer 2014, lips shimmer with hot pops of colour like lavender, coral, orange, and fuchsia. Think sunny thoughts and paint those lips in one of these hot colours, and hopefully summer will follow suit!

Pink lipstick

Have a look at the unapologetically sexy makeup on the runway. The new pink/lavender hue that was applied onto models’ lips during New York Fashion Week Spring 2014 show is slightly sugary, retro but somehow very modern thanks to its matte formula. Get ready to steal the style for yourself this summer! Since the Pepto-Bismol pink colour makes such a bold statement, you can go easy, or even minimal, on the eyes. The ‘Pepto-pink’ pout will look best in sportswear-inspired ensembles, pastel dresses and all-white outfits.

Orange lipstick

Orange lips are a hot trend once this weather decides to warm up. Juicy and refreshing, this lip colour is having quite a moment for a few seasons in a row. And with a good reason – orange lips add a bold pop of colour to your favourite summer looks. So next time you find yourself stuck or overwhelmed by thousands of orange shades, ask a beauty consultant to help you choose a shade that will match your skintone. Judging from my experience, highly pigmented orange lipstick looks best on warm blondes and girls with light brown hair. Brunettes, however may find it a bit harder to get the right orange lipstick.

Red lipstick

Much like your signature scent, every girl needs a go-to red lipstick she can always rely on. Too many women shy away from red lips, fearing that it is just too bold. Have you seen the London phone box? I once heard that it has the best red shade! For an instant inspiration, find a celebrity with a similar skintone and hair to get the best red lipstick tip you could ever get. My favourites are Marilyn Monroe (obviously) and who pulls it off impeccably be it during the day or at night. Her style is classy but still sexy. Although matte lips are very in-style nowadays, you may want to glossy red lips instead of a matte because sometimes matte appears too glammed up.
