The Look of the Season: Bright, Bold Lips

The air is warm, and the masks are gone—let’s celebrate with a riot of color! Bright, bold lips are definitely the move this season. Whether you prefer a bold, matte look or a juicy gloss, make sure you turn up the color intensity. Love a red lip? Branch out with bright coral. Or go for the shock factor with a vivid purple. Either way, it’s time to celebrate summer with popsicle-bright hues in all the colors of the rainbow. 

A Taste of Twilight
Everyone loves a rosy lip, but this summer calls for something unexpected. Branch out to a shimmering violet shade like Chocolate Raspberry, a magenta with iridescent pearl shimmer. This Sephora exclusive offers highly pigmented color that pops even on darker skin tones. Fashion Fair Iconic lipstick in Chocolate Raspberry, $26, available exclusively at Sephora.

Juicy Color
Merely thinking about wearing lip gloss seems like an act of defiance after the last few years, so it’s time to shine! Kosas Wet Lip Gloss doesn’t just give you a juicy pop of shine. It’s loaded with hyaluronic acid and peptides, so your lips stay supple and moisturized. We love the berry-hued Fruit Juice shade. Kosas Wet Lip Gloss, $27, available at Welwythn (Prairie Village Shops).

Peachy and Plump
Sometimes shine just isn’t enough—plump your pout with Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper from Too Faced. Using the power of avocado, jojoba, and vitamin E oils, with marine collagen and atelocollagen, this high-impact gloss helps look and feel fuller. Beware: some users report an intense tingling feeling after applying. Get your vitamin C with the tangerine shade and welcome summer. Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper, $29, available at Ulta.
