Match your frame
If you’re anything like me, the perfect accessory for summer is a fabulous pair of sunglasses…. But a great lipstick or gloss to match will make your look all the more complete.
If you’re daring and opting for red frames, then coat lips with a high shine clear lip gloss. With this look, the frames are the focus so opt for minimal lips or lips with just a hint of colour. I recommend: MAC Clear Lipglass, Estee Lauder High Gloss in Clear or bareMinerals Buxom Babes Swinger Lipgloss Collection.
Trendy clear frames deserve to be complemented with an intense colour explosion so opt for hot sizzling reds and oranges for lots of va-va-voom appeal. I recommend: Illamasqua Intense lipgloss in Mistress or Temper, Dior Rouge Lipstick in Ara Red, Lancome L’absolu Rouge in Idole.
The classic black lens – whether big or small this sophisticated style is one of my faves so a bold coat of red or pink to the lips will add that all-important dramatic effect. I recommend: Dior Rouge lipstick in Iconic Red, MAC lipstick in Russian red or Clinque High Impact Lip Colour in Sassy Spice.
Brown/gold Aviator styles
Another fashion favourite, Aviator style sunglasses with gold or brown lenses and frames have to be seen with vibrant coral and orange shades for that super-glam look. I recommend: Guerlain Collector’s Edition Rouge G de Guerlain in Orange Euphorique, Bobbi Brown Metallic Lip Color in Coral Reef or Beige Gold.
