Matte lips in summer: a do or a don’t?
For me, they’re an ALL-CAPS DO! — but if you’d asked me a couple years ago, I probably would have said “don’t,” because I’m also a sucker for the classics, which for summer usually means glossy lips, dewy skin, and — gah! ALL OF THE BRIGHTS!
My heart swells with makeup joy when I think about it…
But now with so many matte lipsticks on the lip scene, I can’t help myself. I love the way they look in person and in pics, especially when a brand gives the matte treatment to classic summer colors like coral.
As far as I’m concerned, summery matte lips are trending up, but I’m more likely to wear a matte lip in a traditional summery color, like a bright red or a poppy, or coral, hot pink or fuchsia than a darker, deeper berry, plum or wine. I’ll save those darker shades for fall.
What do you think about wearing matte lips in summer? Are they a do or a don’t for you?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Goooood morning! The sun is out, the birds are singing, and I’ve got kitten videos on repeat right now.
I found a treasure trove of kitty videos on the foster_kittens instagram page, and I may or may not have just spent the past 10 minutes watching little tabby kitties yawn, stretch and play. 🙂
The gal who runs the page fosters kittens and soon-to-be mommy cats, and then posts pics and videos of the kitties as they grow up and go out for adoption.
IT IS SO CUTE! I can’t even take it…
The current mama cat in residence is Maggie, a half-Siamese beauty who just gave birth to four adorable kittens, also known as “The Maglets.”
Start with this video of two of The Maglets being scared by a finger (see how the one on the left shakes?). Don’t be surprised if you immediately melt into a warm pile of lovey-dovey goo.
