My deeply rooted love for lipstick is no secret, and goes back to my childhood. I love all colors— from dark reds to blush pinks. Orange, Reds, Pinks, Purples, Bright, Bold, Subtle, I pretty much love them all. Today, I wanted to share with you my current favorites, the lipsticks I have been wearing consistently for the summer. If you have asked me what lip color I am wearing recently, it’s likely one of these.
This red gets me every time. I am obsessed. I started embracing the red orange about a year ago and I just never stopped. I still wear it a few times a week, and I love it for blondes in the summer. It’s the perfect pop of color, it’s cheerful and has been a go-to for a considerable amount of time! Here I am wearing “Cana” By Aveda. I also wear YSL Volupte Tint-in-Balm in “Catch Me Orange”
I love my pink lips. One of my favorite trends is the Barbie pink lip. I just think it looks so happy and bright!
I have many colors in this shade, but my favorite is “Snob” by MAC. I also really love “Pink Nouveau” also by MAC.
“Rose Jicama” from Aveda is the perfect subtle lip, but it’s more bold than my usual blush pink tone. It has more of a Mauve hue, and goes well with my hair color. I wear it all the time when I want some color but nothing too obvious.
Christian Louboutin knows how to make a gloss, I love this shade because it’s a neutral and goes well with all the pinks that I am usually sporting. I love a blush tone and a subtle shimmer that makes it great for everyday wear. I wear this over a lot of my subtle lip colors. Here I am wearing it over a bare lip.
Here is a subtle pink lip, I like to wear a Barbie pink, and then I add concealer to make it really subtle. Sometimes I add a little Christian Dior gloss for some shine. This color is discontinued by Aveda, but is similar to Rose Jicama, and with concealer looks identical.
My favorite Red of all time! I love this color so much, and I wear it at least a few times a week. I have found a few versions of it that I really love. First is “” by NYX and the second shade is “” by MAC. Sometimes I keep it light, other times I layer it for a more dramatic, deep red.
