I love wearing red in summer; it’s that little sprinkling of tan that changes your skintone so that scarlet lips look lush and flattering. If you feel your tone is too pale for the traditionally winter wearing of red lipsticks, use summer time to experiment with reds when the light is kinder and your tone is warmer. I like this one from All For Eve that is very wearable, and of course, sends a portion of the price to The Eve Appeal – a very good reason to rock that red! Because it is hard to match reds, if you are sporting crimson lips, keep cheeks neutral with a peachy shade, of course add plenty of black mascara, and keep nails to a simple slick of clear or almost clear polish. That way, what’s really shining this summer is your smile!
