Summer Essential: Coral Lips

It’s hot in Arizona, I mean REALLY hot, so when it comes to a beauty regime for the summer the theme is “less is more.” I’m talking tinted moisturizer, waterproof mascara, a bold lip color (that’s it). For the summer, I like to tone down the traditional red lip and go for more of a coral shade. I can’t live without the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square. It’s the perfect bright orange red, plus it’s rich with pigment, long lasting, moisturizing and no lip liner is needed.

Go bold like Jessica Alba with a liquid lipstick, or get just a wash of color by using a gloss or balm. Check out my tutorial on how to keep the lipstick lasting all day.
