It felt like it would never come, but summer is finally here! SoCal weather has been so cold lately, our infamous June gloom, and I could not be more excited to enjoy the warmer temperatures coming our way. Of course I’ve been thinking a lot about summer foods, my summer wardrobe, and of course summer beauty! Did you catch my recent post on no heat hairstyles that take five minutes or less? Now that I have hair settled, it’s time to move on to makeup! This red-orange shade of lipstick is always my go-to in the summer. I usually reach for a cooler, blue-toned red in the winter, but now that the days are getting hotter, so are my lipsticks! I’ve shared some of my favorite red-orange summer lipsticks below as well as some of my readers’ all-time favorite red lipsticks.

This creamy and luxurious lipstick is the perfect shade for so many skin tones.
Don’t let the satin finish fool you! This lipstick lasts throughout a busy summer day.
An extra bright and fluorescent shade for when you’re feeling bold.
Use a lip scrub before applying this liquid lip to create the perfect base.
If you’re looking for a deal, check out this affordable balm stain.
Don’t forget to moisturize before using this long-lasting liquid lip!
This full coverage color never feels sticky and lasts all day.
Dab a bit of foundation over your lips before applying this tangerine color to make it pop even more.
