Harsh red lips? Save those lip-smackers for the colder months! For summer, it’s all about cheery cherry and blood-orange mouths—a fresh, inviting look that speaks to sun and fun, especially when slicked with gloss.
To ease your clients into the trend, Kevin Givens, TIGI international cosmetic director, advises, “Apply a small amount to the middle of the mouth, and have her ‘smoosh’ out the color to the edges to create a stain.”
Thankfully, there’s a red for everyone. “Generally speaking, cool skin tones should stick with blue-reds, and warm skin tones with orange-reds,” notes Givens. “But, she can still go more ‘universal’ by treading lightly with whatever color she chooses!”
Pair glossed cherry bomb lips with a sunny, minimal look—think lashes maxed out with black mascara and lightly bronzed cheeks, forehead and nose—and she’s ready for her red debut.
