​10 Shades of Lipstick For Your Summer Days

As the temperatures begin to rise and days start to get longer, thoughts turn to updating your summer wardrobe and of course, your summer make-up bag. However, finding out which colours are on trend, and also happen to suit you, can sometimes be a bit hit and miss.

​10 Shades of Lipstick For Your Summer Days

That’s why we have decided to make life easier for you, by looking ahead to this summer season, and providing a quick round-up of 10 of the best lipstick shades to choose from for summer 2018.

1. Tangerine Orange

Every summer make-up bag needs a tangerine orange lipstick to complete the colour palate. While it may not be everyone’s first choice, a bright orange swipe across the lips creates an instant vibrant summer look and is the perfect accompaniment to that holiday tan.

2.Watermelon Red

Red lips are always a good look but for the summer go for a lighter look than a full on red lippy, with a watermelon shade, or even go for a lip gloss with a hint of watermelon red, to add a shimmer of colour and summer shine to your lips, without the heaviness of a full lipstick.

3.Magenta Pink

If you like to make a statement but red is not your style, then why not opt for a bright pink pout. For a full on girly look this summer you can’t go wrong with a bright magenta pink lipstick. The best way to wear this is with minimal eye make-up and make sure you don’t wear it with pink clothes!

4.Perfect Nude

If the bright, bold colours are not for you, then opt for a perfect nude lipstick shade in pinky-brown, to give your lips a full, moisturised healthy look without the loud and proud colours. The ideal lipstick for everyday wear all summer long. Find a shade that perfectly matches your natural lip colour for the best result.

5.Dark Berry Wine

For those who prefer dark to bright, opt for a dark berry wine red colour this summer. You can build it up with lipstick or keep it lighter with a coloured lip gloss. Either way, this is the perfect dramatic lip look and great for moving from day to evening with minimal effort. Keep the rest of your make-up to a minimum for your lips to really stand out.


Coral is a great summer colour which can be used by everyone as there are so many variations within the colour. If you have fair skin go for a sheer colour, while darker skin tones will suit an opaque version.

Coral shades vary from very orangey to more pink-based tones so there really is a shade for everyone – try them out until you find one that’s perfect for you.

7.Pale pinks

If hot magenta pink isn’t your style then look for some of the softer, more pastel pink shades to create a more subtle but trendy look. A soft pink shade of lipstick or hint of pink lip gloss adds a touch of glamour to every summer day.


This is the colour to go for if you are not quite brave enough to go full tangerine orange. Bronze is a more subtle orange hue to go for and works incredibly well with a sun tan, minimal eye makeup and a little black dress for a sophisticated summer’s night out.


From pale lavender through to dark plum and full on purple, all shades of this fabulous colour are on trend for this summer. If you are not brave enough to go all out purple then choose a pink lipstick with lavender tones to try it out. Purple really is a great colour to brighten up any outfit over the summer and it really can be worn by any skin tone as long as you get the right shade.


This orangey-red might not suit everyone but it is a must have shade this season. If you don’t suit the exact shade go for a cooler blue-based red instead. However, this hot shade is the perfect accompaniment to any barbecue or summer day out. Add vibrancy to any outfit and a splash of colour for a hot date.

For those who prefer a more natural look, nude and delicate pink shades could be the perfect summer lippie choice. While the good news is that bright colours including purple, orange and scarlet are all the rage for girls who prefer their make-up to make a bolder statement.

Whether you opt for a light lip gloss with a hint of colour, or a full on dramatic block colour lipstick, there is a shade for everyone and every skin tone this summer season. So why not head out there and pick up the perfect summer lipstick palette just for you?
