Lipstick Shades for Summer

Make a splash with SL’s checklist of the hottest-coloured bullets for summer. From statement-making tomato red to striking neon pink or a subtle swipe of perky peach, these are the shades to add to your shopping list.

Coral 

DKNY, Rag & Bone, Prabal Gurung...These were just a handful of the SS15 shows that made coral lips their beauty focal point. The ultimate sunshine shade, we suggest you do the same and team it with a pared-back face and bare peepers – just a slick of mascara should suffice. Come summertime, let the shade pop against a tanned complexion and bronzed, sculpted cheekbones.

Lip Color Shine, £38 | Tom Ford 

Rouge Pur Couture, £26 | Yves Saint Laurent

 

Fuschia 

Like red's cooler, younger sister, fuchsia is easier to wear than a hot pink shade, plus comes in a range of shades so there’s a version for brightening up every skin tone. One of the prettiest colours for the summer, we love how it adds extra drama to evening attire.

 

 Rouge Edition Lipstick, £7.99 | Bourjois 

Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick, £26 | Yves Saint Laurent

Neon Pink

Feeling brave? Slick on some Barbie pink for added oomph. Packing a punch is this girly shade and it’s the only accessory needed to counteract even the most pared-down of outfits.
