Top 5 Summer Lip Colours

SAM_2026

A while back I did a post on my top 5 Spring lip colours and as you guys seemed to enjoy it, I thought I’d do my top 5 Summer lip colours now.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Coral in Gold – This is a pale orange colour with some gorgeous shimmer it. The lipstick transfers a bit more than I would like, but the colour makes up for it.

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Notting Hill Nude – Sometimes in Summer you just want a nice nude colour so you can feel fresh and natural in the sunshine. The Moisture Renew lipsticks are my absolute favourites. The formula is amazing – it lasts really well and doesn’t transfer too much.

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Coral Queen – See, they are so good I picked two of them! This fabulous dark orange colour just screams Summer at me. It what I immediately reach for every time the sun shines.

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Elusive – As well as orange, the other lip colour I love in Summer is pink. This Matte Balm is a strong favourite of mine because it is super easy to apply and lasts really really well.

Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Luna – I think by now you know I love the Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquers. They are really deeply pigmented and have a lovely glossy shine. Luna is a super cute peachy colour which is lovely and Summery.

I don’t think these swatches do the colours justice at all because of the bad lighting, but they might give you an idea.

For today’s post, I thought I’d share one of my favourite evening make-up looks with you all.

I’ll start with basic face products. To create this look I have used No 7 Stay Perfect Foundation in Calico as a base with Maybelline Cover Stick Corrector Concealer in Ivory on any blemishes. I then dusted some Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Powder in Light to set the base make-up and added my trusty Bourjois Blusher in Lilas D’Or to add some colour to the apple of my cheeks.

I don’t generally use a lot of products on my eyebrows because I naturally have quite clearly defined eyebrows anyway, but I did apply a little brown eyeshadow from the MUA Heaven and Earth Palette just to define them a little more. I used the shade second from left on the bottom row as I have quite pale eyebrows and this colour adds a little more depth without being too dark. 

I wanted to exaggerate my eyes for this look as I will no doubt be drinking and therefore end up rubbing off any lipstick I wear anyway. I started by applying Rimmel Exaggerate Undercover Shadow Primer all over my lids. I then applied a silvery grey shade from my MUA Starry Night Palette (second from left on the bottom row) all over my lids and then took a gorgeous purpley-lilac shade (far right on the bottom row) and blended it into the outer corners of my eyes.

I wanted clearly defined eyeliner for this look so I used a black liquid liner – Collection Fast Stroke black liquid eyeliner. I also applied some Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eyeliner in Zero to my waterline and under my eye and smudged it through a bit. I finished my eyes with Max Factor Clump Defy mascara.

Finally, I applied Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Notting Hill Nude to my lips.

These pictures are following a walk through Manchester. I don’t know what happened to my hair. It sort of developed a crazy, out of control look!
