Summer is (very devastatingly) about to come to a close, so we’re hanging onto its last days in vain — maybe it’ll decide to stick around just a bit longer? Even though those warm, carefree days are behind us for another year, that doesn’t mean you have to give up that summery makeup style you may have adopted. We’re all for tropical-inspired, bold makeup choices no matter the weather. Express yourself, girl!
Bold Makeup Must-Haves for Channeling Summer Vibes
If you want to bring summer feels into those cooler months, we’re here to help. Bold makeup isn’t a day-to-day essential, but we love rocking a hot pink lip or peachy eye for special occasions. We’ve rounded up our favourite bold makeup essentials to help you kit out your collection and make a statement. Keep on reading to find out our must-haves!
Bright, bold makeup is all about playing with colour, so what better way to do so than through your lipstick? A bright pop of pink, orange or red on the lips is sure to transport you back to those warmer months — we can feel the tropical breeze through our hair already. Choosing the perfect lippie might seem like a task, especially when you’re spoiled for choice, so we’ve picked out a few long-time favourites.
The Bite Beauty High Pigment Lip Pencil in Toast is the perfect red for a lighter makeup look. It’s got orange undertones rather than blue, giving it that gorgeous, firetruck red hue. Wear it with a champagne eye and a sleek wing for a night out, or go simple on the day-to-day with just a touch of radiant highlighter and some bronzer.
Our final bright lipstick fave is (obviously) a bright Barbie pink. The Illamasqua Antimatter Lipstick in Nebula is the perfect shade, and boasts a super-opaque formula that’ll stay all day long on the lips. Pink goes with practically everything, so use your imagination. We love it paired with a whole range of eye looks, or as a statement with a fairly neutral look.
