Flattering Bright Lipsticks for Summer
Love the look of a bright, strong lip and minimal makeup on the rest of the face because it just makes your entire face glow, but the wrong shades can look totally “off” in the most obvious way.
Here are 10 of the “bright” lip colors in my collection that I feel are universally-flattering on most skintones. I don’t mean there aren’t more than these, but they’re just the ones I’ve tried and would recommend.
Corals are orange-reds. Some might have a touch of pink in them as well. These 2 shades work on most skin tones from very pale to dark.
- MAC Lady Danger: This matte is very intense and VERY beautiful. On pale skins it will look almost scarlet but have a touch of brightness and warmth. On dark skins, it will look like a true orange-based coral.
- L’oreal Wild Tango (Asia exclusive): This is a juicier, truer orange with just a hint of pearl. Wear this if you want a more obvious orange. For those outside Asia, Milani’s Mango Mambo is VERY similar so try that one instead.
