Bright Colored Beauty


What is it about warm weather that just begs for bright color? Summer makes everyone feel more adventurous, so it’s the perfect time to try new things and experiment with your beauty routine. This summer, try these fun ways to incorporate the season’s brightest colors into your look:

Bright Lips

Lately, lip color for all seasons have been brighter than ever. We couldn’t even walk around the block this winter without running into someone rocking a bold red lip! For summer time, keep following this brightly hued trend right into the next level: fuchsia, lavender, and orange. And don’t confine these bold colors to your nightlife. A bright lip, sunglasses, and a wide brimmed hat are all you’ll need to stay stylish while hanging poolside.

Remember, when you’re sporting a bold color on your face, maintain some balance by keeping the rest of your palette simple. That means that when you’re stepping out in a gorgeous fuchsia or vivid orange lip, you’ll want to keep eyes nearly nude to create a pleasing ratio.

Bright Tips 

Water-inspired hues are all the rage for summer nail colors. We’re loving mossy greens, lagoon-colored aquas, and positively electric blues. Even if you’ll be spending the summer in the city, every glance at your marina-inspired manicure will transport you to the water. And of course, who could forget the Pantone Color of the Year, emerald? Wearing this shade of green will have you feeling like a chic mermaid from the deepest depths of the sea. What better way to feel during a long hot summer in the middle of Texas?

Bright Hips

Once you’ve got your bright colored makeup game together, it’s time to add some pizazz to your wardrobe. There is really nothing like bright colored clothing to set off a tan (a safe one, please! check out our guide to sunless tanner here). Adding some citrus colors, (think citron, tangerine, and lemon) to your collection will really help you get in a summery mood. Also expect to see tons of primary colors this season: bright yellow, vivid red, and bold blue. To make sure these pieces look posh, not pre-school, choose structured fits and clean lines.
