Colour matched lips and tips may be chic, but where’s the fun in monochromatic makeup? Mix up your look with the colour popping duos that are perfectly picked for summer.
Mint Nails & Baby Pink Lips
Nothing says hot sunny days like mint green and a pop of baby pink. NailHur’s Pear Perfection is a creamy pastel shade which looks great on all skin tones and offers long lasting, glossy wear. We paired it with Illamasqua’s Glamore Lipstick in Pinkie – a cool-toned, girly pink with a satin finish, for a look that’s ideal for sunny days. The perfect contast, the pop of pink will liven up your complexion, whilst the mint hue will enhance your summer glow.
Coral Nails & Nude Lips
The simplest of pairings, balance a sizzling coral with a cool, understated nude.
ArtDeco’s Liquid Lipstick gives full, opaque payoff in just one sweep of the wand, with a rich gloss finish. We opted for Bare Naked, a creamy nude hue which works well on most skin tones. Team it with your favourite coral polish – a bold, bright coral is the obvious choice for summer: it looks amazing with a tan, and is perfect for toes. Here, we chose Essie’s California Coral.
Nude Nails & Classic Red Lips
When we’re feeling the grown up vibes, we’re a little obssesed with pairing chic nude nails and classic red lips for a timeless look. Nails Inc have a gorgeous selection of neutral hues, from the latte toned Montpelier Walk to the muted mushroom of Porchester Square. Our favourite red lip right now is Gerard Cosmetics’ Immortal; a true scarlett which suits absolutely everyone.
White Nails & Berry Lips
For a crisp look, team a clean white polish with a chic berry lip. Nailtiques’ Geneva has a satin finish, which stops nails looking too Tippex’ed, and is infused with their famous nail nourishing ingredients, too for longer, stronger nails. It’s the perfect partner to a lip slicked with Dose of Colours Berry Me – a velvety matte finish, liquid lipstick which offers incredible colour pay off and long lasting wear.
Cream Nails & Peach Lips
Take inspiration from your food by teaming peaches and cream for a delectable nail and lip pairing. The soft creamy tones of It’s Not A Taupe perfectly balance the brighter orange hue of Natasha Denona’s Lipstick in Shiny Peach, for a look that works well for both spring and summer.
