As summer rolls in, it’s the perfect time to experiment with some fresh, trendy lipstick shades that have been all the rage on recent runways. This season, it’s all about looking effortlessly cool and making bold statements. Let’s break down these fabulous trends and find your new favorite summer shade!

The Soft-Focus

Echoing a ’90s aesthetic, a standout trend this season is the blurred lip. This will look good with muted, cool-toned berry shades and warm terracotta reds. Unlike the sharp, defined lines of yesteryears, this style is all about blurring the edges. Achieve this look by applying the lipstick with your fingertips, smudging it slightly over the lip line. 

The Glossy Comeback

On the other end of the spectrum, lip gloss is making a triumphant return. Modern glosses, like Pat McGrath’s LiquiLUST and Laura Mercier’s High Vibe Lip Colour, are far from the sticky formulas of the past. These innovative products offer light-reflecting colors that catch the eye and add depth to your makeup look.

Lip glosses this season range from sheer tints that enhance your natural lip color to bold, vibrant shades that stand out. They can be layered over matte lipstick for added brilliance or worn alone for a fresh, dewy look.
