Summer Ready Lips: Top 6 colours for summer

RMLPS hero 1 The Summer Ready Shades | Photography by Maree Homer

The message is clear: colour is back! The collective consciousness can breathe a sigh of relief; even the whitest teeth can look stained when worn with brown lipstick. Dark berry shades can be a washout unless you perfect a balancing act between bronzer and illuminiser. But reds, pinky corals and tangerine act like a cheerleader for your pace, energizing and lifting (minus the pompoms).

Audrey Hepburn once said, “There is a shade of red for every woman.” So go ahead and choose yours. Just test colours on the tip of your index finger – that’s the reddest part of your hand and you can easily hold it against your mouth to see how it looks.

Below are my top 6 colours for summer: 

  • Chanel
    1

    ROUGE ALLURE VELVET BY CHANEL

    A lipstick as soft and comfortable as velvet. An alternative to shine that dresses lips in deep colours. A real second-skin effect. Matte yet luminous finish from the very first stroke

    ROUGE COCO SHINE BY CHANEL

    A lipstick with a melt-away balm texture that becomes fluid as soon as it touches the lips. The lightweight, shiny version of Rouge Coco, contained in a travel-friendly and practical metal tube faithful to the black and gold codes of the House.
