Summer lip colors add a pop of color to any outfit, and lip colors are essential in the summer to brighten up your look. Makeup trends alter with the seasons, so if you’re unsure of what lip color to wear this summer, check out our list of 9 lip colors for summer 2020!
If you love that classic bright lip stain look, stick with the coral shade! I think this look will make anyone’s makeup look flawless, and it even makes your skin look more tan. You can pair this look with a black and white striped tank, and jean shorts for a modern, trendy vibe. Also, if a vibrant lipstick isn’t your style, no worries, you can also find a bunch of lip colors in lip stains, lip liners, matte lip gloss, and so on. Lipstick is a little bit outdated, but there are plenty of colors to go around!
This classic red lip color is a staple for summer! When it comes to red lipstick, suddenly all of the attention is on your lips: which means, most people pair bright red lipstick with a black dress, or nude color outfit. For summer lip colors, rock the night with this bright vibrant pop of color. You can pair it with jean shorts, a white tank, and so on. I personally think red lipstick is reserved for a somewhat formal occasion or dinner date, but hey, it’s summer, and anything goes. To get the best results with this look, you’ll need a lip liner first to outline your lips. This will ensure your lip color doesn’t fade throughout the night. If you head to Target or Walmart you can make out just under $15.00 with your lip essentials for this look!
3. Bright Pink
Okay, it’s summer, and this maybe goes without saying but…. pink is in. Any shade of pink, all shades of pink. When we think of summer lip colors we think bright shades, right? With this look, you don’t have to worry too much about your outfit, because pink will pretty much match anything. There are so many different shades of pink, and nothing makes a statement in the summer like a bright, gorgeous pop of color on your lips.
Nude lip shades are a classic. If you have a patterned dress on or busy floral shorts, a nude lip shade is a color for you. Nude lips are essential for summer outfits because the clothes we wear in the summer are already bright and colorful, so to even out the style we pair it with a nude lip. There are so many options for nude lip colors, and a lot of light pink shades will work with this, too. The outfits with nude colors are endless.
5. Berry Noticeable
For summer lip colors, you’ll never feel boring with a berry-colored lip stain. This color is a mix of purple, red, and pink, and makes for quite the sexy pout. Some of my favorite drug store brands for this color are L’Oreal, Neutrogena, Burts Bees, and Maybelline. You’d be surprised what a little color on the lips can do!
6. Matte Shine
If you aren’t too sure which lip color is for you, matte is your go-to. Matte lip stains do not have a distinct or obvious lip color, and that’s why they are truly amazing. Keep your audience intrigued by a simple sweep onto your lip, and suddenly you are walking the streets with confidence. Even if you line your lips with a pencil, and sweep a nude shade gloss over your lips, you’ll still have a little color. L’Oreal has a great selection! Shine away, girl!
7. Peach Pink
In the summer, a lot of us barely have time to brush our hair, nevermind spend time on our makeup. That’s ok because a lot of makeup brands offer alternatives to standard lipsticks: choose a pop of color with a lip pencil, lip gloss, or lip stain, and I assure you it will have the same effect. Pair this perfect peach pout with jean shorts, a sundress, or any cute skirt. Peach is the perfect humble color to surely get you noticed.
8. Tinted Lip Moisturizer
If you are not super into the idea of wearing lipstick in the summer, don’t worry, we have something for you. Burts Bees offers a great selection of colors for tinted lip moisturizer, (basically a lip balm with color), and it is the best of both worlds. With this lip product, you get just as much color as you would a lip stain or lipstick anyway, and you can choose which color is best for you! You can pick up this item at your local Target for around $12.00 or less.
Everyone loves a little shimmer, right? For your lip color, choose a light pink color with some sparkly undertones, and you’ll love the look. I have gone to Estee Lauder to pick up something and with my purchase was a free gift, and I fell in love! It became my go-to lip product because it went with every single outfit, and it was effortless to apply. There are so many amazing lip products out there, and I would highly recommend Estee Lauder products! You can shop around for similar items and a lower cost, with brands like Neutrogena, Burts Bees, or L’Oreal.
