From bright mattes, to sheer glosses – #TeamGorgeous takes you through your guide to Summer Lips.

Summery Subtle Tints

For a barely there makeup look, lip tints are the way forward. Their light pigments and nourishing formulas mean that lips will stay nice and hydrated whilst having a subtly coloured tint.

Inika’s certified organic and vegan lip tint in the shade Cosmic is great for those who want smooth lips with a rosy glow.

Coming in a trio of colours, Caudalie’s French Kiss Tinted Lip Balms are cutely packaged and a #TeamGorgeous fave! Our top summer shade is Innocence, a nude pink shade that leaves a light sheen to the lips.

For a slightly bolder tint choose Whispering Orchid by Burt’s Bees. This Natural Moisturising Tinted Lip Oil is the great shade of fuchsia to brighten up your makeup look. Enriched with a Coconut and Meadowfoam Sea Oils the formula moisturises lips and leaves a glossy finish. It’s 100% natural, and 100% recyclable too!

Pop of Colour:

There’s no better season to try out some brighter lip shades. Here are our top 3 lip products for that extra bit of vibrancy and pigment. 

BareMineral’s GEN NUDE™ has a wide range of formulas and finishes and the Buttercream Lipglosses in the range are a great addition to your makeup collection. This summer’s top pick is Sugar, a soft blushing mauve shade that has a sheer to medium coverage.

Stepping away from the pinks and into the oranges – Inika’s Lip Glaze in Coral is the perfect peachy hue. Wear on its own or layer up with a coral lipstick for extra vibrancy.

A totally luxurious lipstick, formulated with Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Triple Complex that helps strengthen and re-texturize skin’s appearance. Our favourite shade for the summer is Melon, a juicy pink shade with orange undertones.

Mighty Mattes:

Vivid, vibrant and most of all long-wearing, our fave Mighty Mattes are sure to take you from the 9-5 to all the sunny evening do’s planned throughout the summer.

For a glamorous summer look, team your sun-kissed glow with bareMinerals Statement Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Fire. A classic red lip with fiery undertones of orange, the easy to apply liquid lipcolour is sure to make a statement!

Gigi by Daniel Sandler is a dynamic shade of fuchsia, highly pigmented, long wearing and daring!

If you’re more into nude shades, then the GEN NUDE Matte shades are a great alternative. A super-silky formula is easy to apply and dries to a natural matte finish. Our fave shade, Swag has a pinky hue and is a universally great shade for many skintones.

Take Care:

Don’t forget to take care of your lips – remember lip products always are easier to apply with a even, nourished base! Prep your lips with Reve Di Miel, the best-selling lip balm by NUXE. The matte formula is super nourishing, smells divine and rescues even the driest of lips.
