Red lips will never go out of style. Red is the kind of color you can wear on any occasion, day or night. A red lip will always ensure you stand out and make a bold impression.

2. Keep it simple and natural with a gloss
While I love a bold makeup look, I also adore this simple glossy look which enhances your natural beauty! The best way to achieve this look is with a lip gloss like this one from NYX Cosmetics. A good lip gloss is essential in your makeup kit. They’re easy, versatile and will match any makeup look! If you want to stay on trend this summer, consider going all-out with the glossy effect.

When I think of summer, I think of fresh and juicy fruit like watermelon, mangoes and peaches. What better way to channel the fruity vibe this summer than with this peach lip color? This sweet and flirty look looks great with a floral sundress or even a simple white t-shirt. Want to go a step further? Take a hint from this model and match your peach lips with matching eye-shadow. So whether you want to go subtle or bold, the color is sure to give you confidence.
