Beauty Insider: Summer Beauty Pairings: Bronzed Skin + Coral Lips


This season, I’ve introduced my Summer Beauty Pairings series, which demonstrates how different focal points of makeup can combine for a seamless style. You should always keep in mind that features, and the makeup used to enhance them, must compliment each another when worn together.

Sometimes, it’s obvious what works. Other times, it’s not. Often, it’s what you least expect that pairs beautifully. That’s how things work in life and in makeup.

This summer, bronzed skin and coral lip equal a perfect combination for every single complexion. This look screams “Summertime!!!!”

My sister Paige is wearing Butter London Lippy Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon in Lady Bird and Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Bronzing Veil.

Butter London Lippy Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon: Butter London offers everything you need in a lip product. A long-lasting, all-in-one formula that delivers lacquer-like shine and phenomenal texture. Ladybird is a perfect coral shade to pair with bronzed skin. There’s a built-in sharpener in this crayon that allows for on-the-go lip lining and filling. Plus, it’s formulated with antioxidants to provide protection and help improve lip moisture and create an even, smoother lip tone.

Too Faced Melted: You get the staying power of a stain, the intense color of a liquid lipstick, and the mega shine of a gloss in one longwear formula. Sold! Using exclusive technology to keep these in cauldrons of molten lipstick liquid and creamy, Melted Liquefied Long Wear Lipstick comfortably coats lips in a burst of intense, high-impact, super rich, saturated color that lasts for hours. Melon is perfect for this coral lip and bronzed skin look. Check out all the colors in the collection, though, as you are bound to find your perfect match.

Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Bronzing Veil: This is a gorgeous bronzer! Just look at my sister Paige above. You don’t have to spend hours in the sun to look like you did. I love the range of tones you can achieve with this palette! Kevyn Aucoin’s Celestial Bronzing Veil uses crystal pigments in bronze, gold, and silver to give you a natural-looking glow and a dose of radiance. A unique, multi-purpose powder bronzer like this can be used to bronze, highlight and sculpt, so get ready to have some fun with this. Pair it with your favorite coral lip and have the perfect summer beauty combo!
