There is nothing I like better during the warm Spring and Summer months than a good, bright, punchy lipstick.
When the weather is hot and your freckles are out in full force, why contend with melting make up? A bit of mascara (or false lashes!) and a fresh swipe of something bright on your mouth and you’re good to go!
Finding your perfect pout can be a bit of an intimidating project if you’re not sure where to start. But I’ve found there are a few lip colors that look great on every mouth, and I’m so happy to share, after the jump!
Revlon Just Bitten 1 of 6If you're going for no fuss, there is nothing that beats a good lip stain, and I really love the Just Bitten line from Revlon. My favorites are Gothic and Flame.

Mac Lipstick in Ruby Woo 3 of 6This red is more of a blue red, and is the exact red you see when you imagine "RED." It is perfectly matte and powdery, and tastes like chocolate. One of the most-worn, best-loved lipsticks in my arsenal for sure.

NARS Lipstick in Carthage 4 of 6This bright Barbie pink is a matte lip color that lasts a long time, and is perfect for sundresses and sunbleached denim. I especially love to wear it with a nice braid in my hair. It is sweet and lovely and really striking.
