As a Lipstick Bandit, I'm no stranger to pigmented, intense lip colors - bright, vampy, siren-red - we got ya covered. Summer is an especially great time for bright, cheerful lips; the colors are refreshing and go well with a tan and minimal makeup. If you're more into sheers and subtle lip colors, hey, we all have our thing, but you shouldn't be afraid of bright lip colors. They can be relatively fuss-free and easy to wear, and dang, they're fun.

Start with the amount of base makeup you're comfortable with. For me, that's undereye corrector/concealer, and Annabelle BB Compact Makeup (thanks, Tracy!). Do your brows if you do them, don't if you don't. Then move on to eyes. I like to keep it basic but well-defined: neutral shadows and black winged liner.
|Current favorites for neutral eyes: Burberry Pink Taupe*, MAC Moleskin*, Clinique Teddy Bear quad.|
|I've stuck to bright, cheery cheek shades lately. Cheeky ones, if you will.|
Then, lips. I already showed you some of my favorites lately. Some are slippery and I like to wear those with Dior's clear liner to keep it from feathering, but after that, I don't worry about it. See? Not any more than I usually wear.
|NARS Carthage. Ponytails and bangs...I'm still not sure how I feel about that.|
