Makeup: the great enhancer. Notice I said enhancer meaning that it is meant to intensify and increase your natural beauty. Yeah. We all love makeup. It’s nice to pick a color of eye shadow and combine it with a lip color for a nice combination. But maybe it’s time for you to switch up that same old look you’ve been doing this year. Luckily, there are a few staple lip colors for summer 2014.
Hot pink lipstick can either be a hit or miss. It is definitely becoming a new classic color though. If you find that hot pink just doesn’t work with your skin undertones, opt for more of a fuchsia.
This lipstick is bright and fun. It became increasingly popular in the past year with many celebrities like Lupita Nyong’o rocking orange lipstick on the red carpet and in magazines (it looks great with her skin tone). As long as you have a nice shade of orange, you can look super stylish with some orange lipstick.
Similar to orange, this is one of those colors where you have to find the perfect shade for your skin tone. It’s a light color that just screams summer.
Classic. Nothing beats a nice red lip. It’s timeless and extremely versatile. For a seductive look you could pair it with a smokey-eye and for an everyday look, it can be paired with some light eyeliner and mascara. You just can’t go wrong with red lipstick—as long as you have the right shade for your skin tone.
Sephora and Pantone universe rate this color the 2014 color of the year. It’s a beautiful pinkish-purple color that will definitely make your lips pop. But, this intense color isn’t only for your lips. Sephora carries a whole collection of products ranging from eye shadow to nail polish in this vibrant color. Not only would you catch everyone’s eye, but also everyone will see that you definitely know your makeup.
