Red for Spring & Summer

Summer_RedLipstick

Because I have always associated the color red with Christmas, red was a color I only wore during the Autumn and Winter months. But, lately I have been loving the idea of wearing red during the Summer. These are my picks for great reds to wear when the weather is warm!

OPI Red My Fortune Cookie: This is a great cream polish. I prefer to stick with yellow or orange-based reds during the Spring & Summer, because blue-based reds remind me more of cooler weather.

Zoya Kimmy: Kimmy is a great alternative for those who don’t like cream polishes; it is full of gold shimmer.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Romantic: The Revlon Balm Stains are great for the warmer months, especially if you are looking for a no-fuss red. No lip liner is required and these stains really do have great staying power, so you won’t need to touch up that often.

Revlon Fire & Ice: If you want a full-on opaque lipstick, I recommend Fire & Ice, which is one of Revlon’s most famous shades. This is a great warm, red and it’s one of my current favorites.

    I love the idea of wearing red in the summer! You wouldn’t normally associate red with summer. I wore Kimmy last 4th of July. Its a gorgeous shimmery color! I also love Zoya’s Elisa & Sarah shades! OPI’s Red My Fortune Cookie is one of my favorite shades they have.
