Add Some Punch To Your Summer Look With A Bright Lip Color!

This summer is about the extremes, from the brightest colors to head-to-toe nudes. The same was true with beauty trends. It's time to say buh-bye to the black lipgloss trend of fall and winter (that never really caught on anyway) and hello to brights! Pastel pinks, hot pinks, light corals and neons are all the rage for lips. Fiery coral was seen at Proenza Schouler and bold pink at Hussein Chalayan. It's hard to go wrong with these bright shades, as long as you find a shade that works for you. Lip stains offer a light pop of color that stays on for hours. Try Stila's new Mango Crush Lip and Cheek Stain that has natural mango extracts that react to your pH levels to give you the perfect shade of coral. Lipsticks also provide a nice creamy matte bright color. Try ones with lots of pigment like Lancome's Color Fever Roses Lipstick. If you're a little iffy to commit or want to try something a little more sheer, try a lipgloss with a subtle tint. YSL also has a limited edition palette of lipsticks that includes both a bight pink and bright coral and lighter pink glosses that will cover all your bright basics! Check out the slideshow to get the look style-setters from LA to New York have already embraced.
