There are a multitude of reasons why women look forward to the start of a new season – fresh wardrobe, upcoming holidays – but the most fun may be the chance to embrace new cosmetic trends.
Women ready to soak in every drop of summertime can take a tip from makeup artist Gregory Arlt and stain their lips a fun yet subtle shade of coral.
“I’ve been obsessed with corals this season, but not your grandmother’s old-fashioned version. New sheer coral stains are light and whisper soft, like you’ve just had a popsicle,” the cosmetologist told InStyle Magazine.
In fact, when he used the lip tint on 90210’s AnnaLynne McCordand at a recent photoshoot, the young starlet loved the look so much that she wore it out that night.
Those who want a sheer, punch-colored pout can apply Liptini Lip Liqueur Lip and Cheek Stains in SoCo, a light-formula stain which will leave lips dyed, not dried.
However, since stains provide translucent coverage, it’s imperative that you make sure your lips are conditioned and moisturized, to keep cracks and flakes from detracting from your coral-colored smile. Use a lip treatment like Murad‘s Soothing Skin and Lip Therapy nightly to keep lips in prime shape, or apply underneath your coral lip stain.
