This Celeb-Approved Lipstick Shade Is Trending for Summer
Nothing completes a look like a swipe of lipstick. We all have our tried-and-true favourites we turn to in times of need, but it’s time to make room on the shelf: Red, a timeless classic, is now trending with a summer twist. Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid have been seen rocking the bright neon red in the day and the night, and even Beyoncé has been spotted sporting the red-hot hue.
The thing is, finding the perfect shade of fiery, orangey red can seem nearly impossible. Too red, and it looks garish during the day; too orange, and you'll look washed out. Deciding between Lady Bug and Dangerous or Ruby Valentine and Red Royal isn't as always as easy as it seems. But if Kendall, Bey and Gigi can do it, then so can we (with a narrowed-down, beauty editor–approved list of course).
Keep scrolling to see Kendall, Gigi and Beyoncé rock the look, and shop our favourite red-orange lipsticks for summer.
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Bang (£13)
This shade from Urban Decay's Vice lipstick line is an even mix of red and orange, with a super-pigmented and creamy formula that will stay on your lips even through the summer heat. Nourishing ingredients—including aloe vera, avocado, jojoba and babassu oils—keep your lips softly hydrated.
NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick (£7)
It is no wonder that this lipstick is a beauty editor favourite. The formula is super-matte, but doesn't flake or crack, and the look-at-me red is easy to wear and surprisingly flattering on everyone. Prepping with some lip liner will ensure that it stays put day without having to reapply.
Tom Ford Lip Colour Matte in Flame (£39)
This summer-ready lipstick from Tom Ford is worth the splurge. It creates a velvety, slightly creamy finish that lasts for hours, and the luxurious formula glides on evenly while remaining lightweight. Plus, this particular shade of red-orange is a staple in almost every makeup artist's kit!
