Summer Lipsticks & Nail Polishes

Summer lipsticks & nail polishes

| Summer Lipsticks & Nail Polishes! |

I'm officially in Summer mode after the mini heatwave over the bank holiday weekend recently and I'm gathering my shorts, denim skirts, straw hats as well as some colourful makeup and nail polish favourites for the imminent arrival of Summer.

Lipsticks:
I usually opt for a classic nude lipstick hue on an everyday basis and one of my favourite hydrating options is the YSL Rouge Pur Couture in 70. This will be the perfect effortless lipstick to apply on those hot sunny days when I don't want to worry about lipstick smudging and I can just quickly reapply it with a little mirror or even just the camera on my phone if I'm carrying a small bag. 

Pink is another lipstick hue I'm fond of sporting during the sunny weather in Summer. Recently, I wore my Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Torres Del Paine for the first time in awhile and I forgot how pretty it looks on the lips! Normally the little ring of colour on the end of the pencils are a good depiction of what the colour of the lipstick looks like but in this case, it's a little misleading. The colour on the packaging looks like a peachy, apricot shade but in the bullet and when swatched it looks like a rosy pink shade. However, on my lips I can see the peachiness they were trying to convey but it's definitely more of a pink coral than an apricot shade though.

Another pink favourite is the Clinique Pop Matte Lip Colour and Primer in Peony Pop. A nude pink shade with a comfortable, creamy matte formula - I love the formula of this lipstick so much and I definitely need to add more shades to my collection (they always reduce this lipstick range on Feel Unique so I'll have to keep an eye on their website!).

I'm pretty sure that my last lipstick favourite features in nearly every Spring/Summer makeup roundup post I write but it's just the perfect shade for the two warmer seasons of the year. I am of course talking about Mac Tropic Tonic, a vivid coral with red and orange undertones and a long-lasting matte formula.

Nails:
Essie is my favourite nail polish brand as they last really well on my nails, the application is easy and they never look streaky. My favourite shade for Summer is Tart Deco, a bright orange-toned coral that complements a glowing Summer complexion and a floaty dress.

If I want to wear something more neutral during the warmer months then I'll usually opt for Muchi, Muchi which is a pale pink hue. Due to it being such a light colour, it needs three coats rather than just two but it's definitely worth the extra effort as the colour is light and airy - it would be a beautiful shade for a bridal party!

My last nail polish top pick for Summer is Peach Daiquiri, a hot pink shade with strong red undertones. In bright light, it looks pinker and in low light, it leans more on the red side - It's certainly a statement shade!


What are your favourite lipsticks and nail polishes for Summer?

Love,
