Take any bold color and opt for a matte finish. “This summer, bright colors will be especially popular and the finish could be a soft matte or super-high shine,” Ali says.
To apply, Ali says a precise contour will always be a classic, but you can always opt for an effortlessly chic look. “Apply any bright lipstick in the center of the lips. Then work your way towards the edges, creating a gradient, blurry effect using your fingers,” she suggests. “Then use a cotton tip to smudge the edges even more. This is the perfect way to transform a classic, red/orange/fuchsia lip into a casual everyday wear.”
