Nobody does bright lipstick better than Jenna Lyons, Creative Director for J.Crew. She regularly sports NARS Lipstick in Heatwave, which is the perfect matte, orange-red lipstick. We just love her barely there makeup and bold, bright lips for Spring and Summer. On days when we aren’t ready for that fully bold lip, a sheer version is the perfect way to go, which is why we also love Beautycounter’s Lipsheer in Scarlet. Wearing a bold lip is an easy and inexpensive way to jump start your look, especially in the Spring and Summer. A couple of tips for wearing a bright lip…skip the matching lipliner, it will make your lips look too harsh. You will also want to keep the rest of your make up simple. Think mascara, tinted moisturizer and a hint of bronzer to keep you from looking too washed out. Whether red, coral or pink, there are so many amazing bright lip colors out there, and it can be hard to sift through all of them to find the perfect one. We’ve tried them all, done the sifting for you and come up with our favorite bright lipsticks and glosses.
