Ready to find your new go-to summer makeup shade? Pucker up with one of our top 10 favorite lip colors below.

SUMMER LIP COLOR #1: PALE PURPLE

There’s no denying it: Purple is the new pink this summer. And when you pick a pale rendition, you’ll be able to perfect the unicorn lip trend that’s been taking social media feeds by storm. Equal parts pastel and moody, this pale hue is an instant game changer for your everyday look.

SUMMER LIP COLOR #2: MILLENNIAL PINK

Yep, this is a thing! What once was deemed bubblegum pink is now the color of choice for millennials near and far. Slightly more toned-down than its chewing gum counterpart, millennial pink is a soft shade that looks like all the blue notes have been taken out—which means you’re left with a warm, cheeky color that pairs perfectly with just about everything.

SUMMER LIP COLOR #3: EGGPLANT

Not quite burgundy and not quite blue, eggplant is the hybrid lipstick child that you’ll soon be obsessing over. The trick to rocking this dark lipstick is to pair it with minimal eye makeup so that your pout can do all the talking.

SUMMER LIP COLOR #4: TEAL

Embrace your inner mermaid with a vivid ocean-inspired lipstick. Sure, bright blue lips might seem a little intimidating, but as soon as you give your pout a wash of this color, you’ll be absolutely in love. The vibrant color can help awaken your face for a fun, flirty look that’s perfect for a night on the town or skipping between sets during festival season.

SUMMER LIP COLOR #7: DUSTY MAUVE

If you love the idea of pale purple lipstick but aren’t quite ready to say goodbye to nude, make a compromise and try a dusty mauve lipstick. The milky pinkish purple hue pairs beautifully with all skin tones and could be just the neutral you’re looking for this season.

SUMMER LIP COLOR #8: CHERRY RED

Forever a classic, you can never go wrong with bright red lips. The key to nailing the look is to make sure to use a lip liner around the edges of your lips to ensure that your sizzling lip color doesn’t seep into the lines surrounding your mouth. Trust us, with a color this dazzling, you want to help keep it in place.

SUMMER LIP COLOR #9: TWO-TONE NUDE

Not a one lipstick kind of girl? We totally understand! And luckily for you, one the season’s hottest trends is pairing two very similar nude lipsticks together for a statement pout like no other. All you have to do is put the lighter of your two shades on your top lip and the darker shade on your bottom. Top it off with a little lip gloss and you’re good to go!

SUMMER LIP COLOR #10: WINE

Your favorite drink has become one of the season’s most popular lipstick hues. And just like your grape-made beverage, this dark wine-colored lipstick is the refreshing touch you need to bring a little life to your look. Since it’s dark, start out by applying one coat and build up until you achieve the darkness of your desire.
