No-Fuss Summer Lips

by

The sun is plastered against a clear blue sky, school is out, and your earbuds are blasting your favorite song. Summer time means no worries, and there are only three precious months of it to enjoy before school starts again. Don’t waste time in front of a mirror when you could be on the beach, underwater, or partying. These classic summer lips will help salvage those few extra minutes you need to pack some extra bottles of water into your cooler.

In honor of summer holidays, like Flag Day or Labor Day, fully embrace your red, white, and blue spirit with some fiery red lips. For perfect lines (and so that you don’t have to constantly reapply), fill your lips with liner after lining them to your desired shape. It might feel odd, but this provides lips with extra primer, and if your lipstick does wear off, no one will notice! Try Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in “Gash” ($19.00) underneath your red. The creamy liner will cover every spot.

It’s summer! Grab an umbrella drink, your bikini, tanning oil, and embrace your inner girly-girl. Shades of pink will help increase the effect of tanned skin. Lady Gaga’s Mac Viva Glam is just enough pink to brighten up any look.

Au Naturale
If it’s too humid for an intense look, and your face is melting before you can even apply concealer, then your best bet is to go natural! I don’t mean skinny dipping, though. Any lip balm will saturate lips, but for a super glossy finish, apply a tiny amount of non-tinted aloe vera to lips. It’s a natural lip gloss that will get you noticed while curing sunburn.
Duck face or prune pout, these basic lips are essential to get you through the rest of summer. So pucker up and get ready to hashtag your favorite looks all summer long.
