Summer Lips

Now that things are heatin’ up, it’s time to brighten that lip! Stephanie Neiheisel, of SN Makeup Artist , gives us the best, radiant hues for our skin tones.

Fair Skin Fair skin looks great with with a bright pop of pink. It enhances the porcelain aspect of the skin and emphasizes eye color when paired with a simple mascara (lipstick shown:MAC Candy Yum Yum).

Medium Toned Olive Skin Pastel floral pops work wonders for olive complexions. Lilacs and bright purples are a fun way to add an accessory to your look while feeling light, delicate, and flirty (shown: MAC Prolong Wear lip liner in Fashion Boost).

Deeper Skin For those with deeper skin I feel the “norm” is to go with plums. This summer we are shaking things up with a much warmer pop and enhancing this skin tone with oranges and anything that screams “bright sunset.” Its a fresh new approach and these shades brighten the complexion (shown: MAC lipsticks Morange or Vegas Volt).

*Trends right now- mattes and neons on the lips paired with fresh, raw, and uncontrived skin.
