This summer, step out of your comfort zone with lip shades in purple and orange. With a bit of color on your skin and toned-down eye makeup, these bold hues will add another dimension to your summer wardrobe. Matte colors have been on trend for a while now, but with drier formulas, it's important to take care of your lips first. Sometimes it's easier to prep the rest of your face prior to applying lip color, so start with your regular skin care routine and light liner or mascara for your eyes. Too much drama on your eyes and your lips could overwhelm your face, so try to keep your eye makeup to a minimum.
A bit before going out, use the Bliss Fabulips Sugar Lip Scrub to exfoliate your pout and soften your skin. Once your lips are prepped, depending on the shade of lipstick, it's important to add liner to make sure that the color doesn't seep into your skin. If you can find a liner in your shade, use that before applying the lipstick with a brush. If not, a clear liner will help the color stay in place. Blot with a tissue to set, and enjoy the compliments!
