Unsure of how to wear super bright and bold colors on your lips this summer? There have been so many makeup collections released lately that feature intense colored lipstick, perfectly in trend for this spring and summer. The warmer season is the perfect time to try out a new look - but sometimes it can be tricky to figure out how to combine it with the rest of your makeup.
My tip: Let your lips take center stage, and pull the rest back. Your eyes can still be emphasised but use eyeliner and nude colored eye shadows to achieve the look, instead of bright colors. Warm up your cheeks with a complimenting blush, but try not to choose the exact same color family, unless you like the matchy-matchy look. For example if you go for hot pink lips, opt for a peach color on your cheek. If you choose an orangey lipstick, go for pink on your cheeks. Or you could choose a very neutral blush tone all together.
