6 Super-Fresh Summer Lip Colors That Look Good on Everyone
Even if you’re normally a Chapstick-only kinda gal, summer is the perfect excuse to bust out a bold lip: Bright hues look great against sweaty dewy skin and punch up even the simplest tee-and-shorts ensemble. Here are six shades we’ll be wearing all summer long.
Hear us out: The purpley-pink shade is majorly on trend, and it’s actually super wearable, particularly on cooler-toned skin. Just keep the rest of your makeup minimal and wait for the compliments to roll in.

Put your true reds away until fall and opt for a brightened-up pinkish tone—think cherry snow cone—that looks fantastic on everyone (but especially deeper complexions).
Full-blown orange too outside your comfort zone? A matte orangey red—aka the tropical punch of lip shades—gives neutral-undertoned ladies the same boost while still feeling totally classic.
& Other Stories ($15)
OK, we understand that vibrant hues aren’t for everyone. For a subtler pop of color, reach for a universally flattering raspberry tint—better yet, one with SPF built right in.
If ’90s brown is old news by now, brace yourself: Early-2000s gloss is making a comeback. Thankfully, the new iteration is more plush, dimensional sheen than tacky vinyl lacquer.
