Your Guide to the Perfect Summer Lips
What to do when it's too hot to keep up with your daily beauty routine.
'Summertime and the livin' is easy', right? Not always, because with each rising temp it will be harder to keep your makeup from melting off of your face, turning all those hot days into hot messes instead. Thankfully there is one very easy solution: use as little makeup as possible on your face and eyes, and put full focus on making your lips stand out.
Keep your face natural and bare-looking to really let your lips steal the spotlight! Choose a bold shade that you love and apply it to well-moisturised lips. Opting for a matte lipstick will make it last the longest, even in hot summer weather. Still want to give your eyes some love? Pair your bold red lip with a soft brown eyeshadow from H&M Beauty's Eye Colour Palette.
AU NATUREL, ALL DAY
Summer is the best time to ditch makeup all together. If you don't want to go completely au naturel, use H&M Beauty's Lip Colour To Go lipstick pencil in the Caramel Cream shade to add some subtle definition to your lips. Match your nude lips with a coral-toned blush or simply dab some lipstick on your cheeks to finish the look.
THE RETURN OF BROWN LIPSTICK
One of the '90s most defining shades has made a grand comeback. Although not a classic warm-weather look, few colours do match a summer glow (which is best achieved with some help from a face primer) better than brown lipstick. Make sure to moisturise before dabbing it on with your finger to achieve a subtle and relaxed beauty look.
