During the Summer most of my time is spent outside and near or in the water with the kids. Whether it be swimming at the pool or playing in the creek, we try to stay cool in the 100+ weather that we get around here. Because I'm either sweating or wet I keep my make-up and beauty routine to a minimal. I wear a little bit of foundation and mascara. I swimsuit with a swimsuit cover-up (when I want to look a little cuter) or with shorts and a t-shirt when I'm in a hurry.
Two of my favorite Summer trends are bright, neon colors and something new I'm trying this year is pink lipstick. I think a bright pink lipstick is the perfect way to combine these trends and to freshen up a minimal Summer make up look. Pink lipstick works equally well with a bathing suit and cover-up as is does with a flowy dress on a night out.
I did a little post-pink lipstick and after pink lipstick experiment to show you the difference it makes. In the first pictures you can barely see my lips! The bright lipsticks reminds me of a (fake!) tan. It's not something that stands out a lot, but it makes a huge difference. It makes you look more vibrant and alive.
The pink lipstick adds a little bit of fun to an otherwise boring look.
What are your go to Summer beauty trends? Have you ever tried bold lips?
