Guest Post: Spring and Summer Lip Picks

This is the first guest post of many in the next few months, today Sophie Howard of Books and Beauty will be talking all about her spring and summer lip picks! 

I am definitely an autumn and winter girl; always have been! I prefer the cold to the hot summer months. However, as much as I love the autumn and winter trends, I enjoy nothing more than being able to rock a bright lip when the sun finally decides to come out (I live in Yorkshire so it’s a rarity!) 

In this post, I have chosen some of my favourite lip colours to wear in the brighter months. I hope you like them!

Spring and Summer Lip Picks


You can’t go wrong with a coral lipstick or lipgloss in spring and summer. It’s the perfect product to brighten your complexion and add some colour to your make up. I tend to wear a smokey eye throughout the year, but on the days where I want more the colour to be focused on my lips, I go for a matte eye and a sunny coral lip. My favourite coral shade is the Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in 020 Papaya
(I got this from TK Maxx and I have an awful feeling it could be discontinued! If you can’t find it, there is an exact colour called Juicy Papaya available in the Revlon Lip Butters)


Pink is a great colour to wear all year round. During the colder months I tend to wear a more muted, mid tone pink such as Fanfare by MAC. As soon as the sun starts shining I go all out and wear a bright, blue toned pink to really make my lips pop. This Lip Blush from Jelly Pong Pong is my absolute favourite spring/summer pink. 


I usually save the red lipstick for nights out or in the colder months. However this red (Candy Apple from the Revlon Lip Butter range) is a great colour to wear all year round. It’s not a pillar box red colour, more of a bright, pink toned and looks great in spring and summer.


You can’t go wrong with a nude! The one I always reach for is Peach Blossom by MAC. It’s not a completely nude shade as it has a tint of pink and shimmer in it. If, like me, you prefer to go for heavy eyeshadow over brighter, prominent lipstick, then a nude shade is your best friend!

I hope you liked my lip picks for spring and summer! Let me know if you have any of these products or which ones you would have added to my line up!
