As summer comes to a bittersweet end we must embrace our last days in the sunshine and heat while we can! This summer embarked so many new trends such as high-waisted shorts, heeled sneakers and over-accessorizing; however, what I've noticed is how Fashionistas have been playing with makeup. Although summer is all about natural and fresh faces, bright and nude lips have taken over.
More times than not I've noticed Fashionista's wearing minimal makeup but it's contrasted with an amazing lip color. Once I started to embrace this trend myself, I too fell in love. I would literally wakeup, throw on some bronzer and mascara, add a great lipstick and go, just like it seems this Fashionista did! She's wearing severely faded denim cutoffs with a cross of lace and crotched, loose top with a bright green turban, which she off-sets with a nude lip. My favorite lipstick colors have been matte nudes like this neutral stick with a glazed finish, as well as pinks and rich plums, such as this lucious purple stick from MAC. If you want to wear something more bold, opt for an outrageous color, like this bright orange stick or transition into fall 2012 with ease by going for a cross between the goth and oxblood trends with this burnt blackberry color from Bobbi Brown.
I really hope that this trend keeps up because it's so easy and cute! Ladies don't be afraid to explore new lip colors as seasons come along. You never know what crazy hue will look surpisingly beautiful on you!
