We’re always on the hunt for that “perfect” summer makeup look, whether it’s a summer eye, summer cheek, or summer lip. Megan Fox absolutely nailed a perfect summer lip at the Kids Choice Sports Awards last week. This perfectly peachy-coral color is stunning, and pretty universally flattering to boot! It’s soft, subtle, and so reminiscent of all things summer—warm beaches, sunsets, or peach pie with a scoop of ice cream on top… After showing this photo off to the other elfettes at e.l.f. HQ, we became obsessed with finding a matching e.l.f. shade to get this look!
First off, prep lips with the Studio Lip Exfoliator:The perfect summer lip has to start out smooth! while we often think of winter as being the worst time of year for dry, cracked lips, your pout can still get parched in the warmer months, especially if you live in a drier climate. Once your pucker is good and exfoliated, treat it with a clear lip balm. We love the Studio Lip Balm with SPF 15 in Clear (Can’t go wrong with the added sun protection!) or the Essential Soothing Lip Balm in Vanilla Cream (A favorite of our elfettes on Pinterest!). To make sure your color lasts through a hot summer party, especially if it’s outdoors, prime with the Studio Lip Lock Pencil and the primer side of the Studio Lip Primer and Plumper. For your lip color, think of a nude lip, with a touch of pink, giving you a peachy shade. Our picks? The Mineral Lipstick in Nicely Nude, Studio Moisturizing Lipstick in Party in the Buff, Studio Matte Lipcolor in Coral, or the Essential Lipstick in Captivating. Top your color off with a gloss for some added summer shine! We like our Studio Glossy Gloss in Ballet Slippers, Mineral Lip Gloss in Sorority Girl, or the Essential Shimmer Lip Gloss in Believe. Getting the perfect summer lip color has never been easier with e.l.f.!
