On the days that you just don’t feel pulled together, I’d advise you throw on a bold lip and go. It’s amazing what a simple lip color can do for the complexion. When it comes to picking a shade that will make the rest of your makeup look flawless; I’d advise you to take your skin undertone into consideration. The top picks for this Summer are bubblegum Pinks and Red/Oranges. If you have a Yellow undertone to your skin, you may go towards more of an Orange/Red shade. One of my all-time favorites is Nars Matte Velvet lip pencil in Red square. It comes in the form of a lip pencil which makes it more precise than the bullet of a lipstick.
When choosing a lipstick I recommend that you pick a lipstick with a matte formula, as they tend to wear well during the humid Summer months. Another top pick is Morange Amplified lipstick by Mac Cosmetics, It’s defiantly another one for warm toned skin girls and of course confident ones! Morange looks best when worn with a sweep of mascara and eyeliner, you don’t want to play up two looks at once!
If you are more of the fairer side you can defiantly rock this lip, it would just be very bold!If you have cooler toned skin you should lean towards Coral based Oranges for a more natural look. I’d recommend to go for Coral toned Orange such as Topshop’s lipstick in Charmed.
Which Lipsticks will you be rocking this Summer?
This winter, red lipstick is trending! According to Vogue, this shade is all the rage this season.
Red lips make quite the statement but are also elegant and super stylish! MAC cosmetics states that mixing reds is sometimes the key to formulating a perfect shade, using different lipsticks as well as lip pencils.
Also, consider these amazing shades this season: cranberry for the holidays, a shimmery pink to compliment the snow, gold for new years, and brown for a neutral look!
The cranberry shade can add a great pop of color to your face and appear to be super striking. Brown is an underrated color that can compliment a natural look. Wearing a shimmery pinks can create a winter wonderland effect and make you stand out. Shades of gold have gotten bad press because people think they clash with their skin tone, but are actually great to dress up or down depending on your outfit and schedule!
Finally, winter is the only time you can pull off black shades of lipstick, so rock the dramatic look while you can!

Some of the Haute PR Beauty Babes are from the lovely South and are very familiar with the magnificence of mint julips. A summer Southern staple, the drink is refreshing and feminine, so it’s only fitting that Lush has a Mint Julip Lip Scrub to refresh your lips this summer.
It apparently tastes like mint chocolate ice cream, which is pretty hard to beat! Lip scrubs are a great way to prep your lips before applying lipstick or lipgloss, and to renew your lips after hot, tiring summer days. It’s also vegan, a big plus for natural-product lovers!
If you’re not a fan of mint, it comes in different flavors; check them out at lush.com.
