Summer Lips!
[ Edited ]

What are everyone's go-to lip color looks for summer? We personally LOVE pale lipsticks to keep it simple this time of year. 

 

What are your guys' favorites? What are your must-have brands and products for this summer?

My idea of a go-to lippie is one that I can wear everyday because it blends with any makeup or clothing I'm wearing.  When choosing my go-to lipgloss, I keep in mind that nude is not the same as neutral.  And, by the way, a go-to lipgloss or lipstick is going to vary from skin tone to skin tone, so below are some go-to, everyday shades that I think will work for light, medium and dark skin tones:

Fair:  Wear light golden or peachy glosses to add warmth to your skin without accentuating any ruddiness.  These shades will also help bring out your eye color.  Avoid gray or silvery nudes that can wash you out.  A good example of a go-to neutral gloss for fair skin is NARS Lip Lacquer in Chelsea Girls which you can find here:  http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P2864&categoryId=B70

 

Olive / Medium:  Try pink or rosy glosses, or any that have a touch of violet.  Nudes infused with bluer shades will make your skin and teeth look brighter.  Avoid overly caramel or golden nudes that can make your skin look sallow.  A good neutral lipgloss choice for this skin tone would be Lancôme Juicy Tubes in Tickled Pink which you can find here:  http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P141909&categoryId=B70

 

Dark:  Wear warm golden, bronze or beige lipgloss to help your skin glow and also to give your lips some dimension.  Avoid silvery gloss, which can cause your skin to look ashy.  A good everyday neutral for dark skin is Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Ambre Rose which you can find here:  http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P109906&categoryId=B70

Hope this helps and have a great day!
