Makeup Tips From Bobbi Brown
Which lipstick shade is best in the summer?
Pamela D'Arcy, Galloway, New Jersey
Bobbi: Lipsticks that are dark and opaque can look too severe in bright sunlight, while glosses can be tough to wear because the heat can make them feel gooey and sticky. In summer, I replace both with SPF-packed tinted balmsthey’re easy to apply, offer just a hint of color, and leave my lips really moist. If I want to go a bit deeper at night, I fill in my lips with a favorite lip pencil and top them off with clear balm.
