As the temperatures soar into the three digits and the whir of air conditioners and fans mounts to a cacophonous symphony, the bright pink, orange, brownish nude, and wine lips of winter and spring are giving way to the pops and hints of summer lip colors.

With this summer’s makeup trends arrive a host of summer lipstick colors ranging from the traditionally classic to the radically new. Below are the three of the most popular lip colors of summer 2015 paired with high quality lipsticks that exemplify this summer’s trends from a variety of price ranges.

Bold Reds

After a year out of the limelight of runways and photoshoots, the classic red lip has made its striking return with this year’s spring and summer releases. The entire arsenal of reds, from the hints of strawberries of a tinted lip balm to the striking contrast of a neon or brick red, are in style right now—most notably the classic, bright, often blue-toned red lip.

Make it Matte: Transform your favorite red lip color into an equally superb matte lipstick look instantaneously. Just apply your favorite red lipstick, cover your lips with a sheet of oil blotting paper, carefully brush on some translucent setting powder with a fluffy powder brush, and voilà! Your formerly satin-finish or shiny lip color is now a pigmented matte lipstick.

Perfectly Precise: Rather than swiping on a pigmented red directly from the bullet onto the lips only to risk overfilling or staining, use a lip brush to carefully trace the outline of your lips with lipstick before filling them in.

Natural Pinks

On trend summer lip colors are shying away from the vibrant hot pinks and pinkish hues that formerly dotted the lips of models and celebrities in these sweltering months in favor of muted, sheer pink lip colors that accentuate the natural pink tones of the lips.

Moisturizing Must: Take advantage of the popularity of sheer pink lipsticks to use products that add moisture to your lips and prevent them from becoming chapped and unsightly after hours in the blazing sun.

Vibrant Purples

Traditionally, the onset of spring and later summer was associated with the relegation of autumnal plums and wines to the back of lipstick holders and drawers, put away until the return of the colder months. Not so anymore. Making a radical appearance on spring and summer runways and in recent photoshoots are violet lip colors ranging from traditionally wintery wines to vibrant, neon plums.

Pick your Purple: Different undertones and shades of purple suit people with different skin tones. From pale lavenders to deep wines, shades of purple vary wildly, as shown by the three equally pigmented, but starkly different shades pictured here.
