we just got back from four days on the north shore of massachusetts and while arthur may have dampened our plans a bit, i still managed to catch a little sun while sitting on my parents’ roof deck. since i rarely get a tan, i’m planning on milking this hint of bronze for all its worth! so, aside from kicking up my bronzer game, i’m adding a warm, rosy-nude lip to my makeup mix to accentuate this oh-so-slightest kiss of sunshine.
i love clinique butter shine lipstick in pink-a-boo because it’s creamy and ultra wearable. on me, the shade is a true golden pink that’s comfortable and long-lasting. it adds a subtle pink glow to lips and plays so nicely with my baby tan.
if you’re less into shimmer and want something simple that will still enhance your summer skin tone, try bite lush lip tint in lychee. it’s a glossy neutral pink with lots of shine and ingredients like argan oil and vitamin e soothe and soften sun-parched lips.
those who like rich color but don’t want to sacrifice skin conditioners will like bobbi brown creamy lip color in rose petal. it’s a medium rose with soft shimmer (more pigment than the other two) and i also think it would be so gorgeous on a summer bride.
i’m not ashamed to tell you that all three of these are currently slotted into my favorite lipstick holder, but there’s always room for more! what lips do you like to wear with your tan?
