Summer Lipstick Favorites

summerlipstickfavorites 1 | 2 | 3

My eyes are becoming super sensitive in my old age, ;) to the point where I’m not wearing much eye makeup these days.  Just a swipe of mascara, if that, and I’m out the door.  I recently read an article about lipstick being the one makeup item that really won’t run in this summer heat and so I thought, well if I can’t play up my eyes, I might as well play up my lips, right!?

I’m not feeling anything glossy when my face is already shiny in the heat, so I’m turning to more matte lipsticks.  The above three are my current favorites: a beautiful peach-orange color, a stunning orange-red (remember this post when I said I wanted to find a lipstick in the same color as my nail polish? Well, I did!), and a lovely darker nude.

I’d love to hear your favorite go-to lip products for summer so let me know what you’re wearing in the comments below!

Outfit: Rust

Anthropologie had quite a few mixed material peplum tops on their site this summer like this little rust number and I was so drawn to them (another post featuring one, coming soon!)  I think I am most attracted to the flow of this top, and the uniqueness of having a T-shirt material top and silky bottom.  I also love the high-low feature.  These little flats I picked up on sale at Anthropologie are just darling as well.  I wasn’t sure what I’d make them work with, but I’m finding they go with anything from jeans to dresses.

On My Nails: Julep Tamara

Julep’s Tamara polish is so gorgeous, I wish I had it in lipstick form.  It’s the perfect red-orange.  I painted my nails this color to go with a fairly neutral outfit (post coming soon!) and it went perfectly together!  Julep’s Maven service is so fun and it’s always neat to see what colors come in the mail each month.  This is definitely a winner in my book and I can’t wait to use this polish again.

To take advantage of a fun monthly nail polish service and great discounts, become a Julep Maven today!

Outfit: Sporty Skirt

I’m all about versatility in my wardrobe, which I know I’ve mentioned before.  A good example is this chambray button down tank that I’ve owned for years and has made several appearances on the blog.  This skirt is new this season, but I can already tell there are tons of ways to wear it.  This outfit is a little bit sporty and a little bit sassy.  Black and chambray are perfect together but my favorite part of this outfit is the light booties which really set the look for me.
