Not surprisingly, bright lips are in again this Spring/ Summer season and I had to put my spin on the look using some very affordable but fabulous products. It's a super simple, yet very polished look that when done right, suits almost everybody. This is my interpretation:
I kept the eyes quite simple using a shimmery warm gold cream eyeshadow and a sparkly brown from my Sleek Chaos palette to emphasize the lashline (it seems however that I must have forgotten to blend it properly afterwards ;). I put a fair coating of mascara on, added a hint of blush... and painted that bright pink coral on my lips!

I will follow up this post with my recommendations for brightly colored lip products ranging from the boldest hues to some more toned-down options, all from very affordable brands. There's also going to be another swatch of the Wet'n'Wild lippie in slightly different lighting conditions, so stay tuned! Do you do bright lipstick for Spring and Summer?
