Springtime is here and nothing says fresh like a brand new lip color at any age! Bright and floral lip shades are the perfect pick-me-up to update your makeup wardrobe for spring. There is a garden full of new choices and formulas that are modern like matte lip tints and lipsticks, semi-sheer juicy universal reds and bursts of colorful lip crayons for every mood. The easiest way to wear a bold lippie is to keep the rest of your makeup as simple as possible with just a little foundation, highlighter, black mascara and blush and then let your beautiful new lips do all the talking. The issue is in choosing the perfect shade that works for your unique skin tone. I have chosen my top 5 favorite new lippies that I’m currently in love with that will work on any woman of any age and any skin tone. Now pick one that you love and get ready to swipe on springtime!

1. Ice & Jam Lipstick set in “I’m The Fun One’

This bold fuscia pink and shocking orange is not for the timid but if you are bold enough to go for it these shades actually work on any skin tone. The lid of the tubes hold a perfect little mirror too for touchups and the formula is infused with Cupuaçu Butter a super fruit from the Amazon.

2. Laura Geller Set Of 5 Love Me Dew Lip Crayons

This set includes Cherry Punch, Berry Sparkling, Happiful, Mango Sorbet and Pink Mimosa so your lippie wardrobe will be all set for the season. This crayon offers a dewy, slightly sheer balm-like finish with a buttery shine.

3. Lipstick Queen Eden Magic Apple Red

This luscious juicy tempting semi-sheer red will get you noticed day or night. It flatters every complexion (which is hard to find) and holds a magical green holographic shimmer. It contains sunflower oil, shea butter and vitamin E for a perfect pucker.

4. Kjaer Weis Sweetness Lip Tint in Sweetness

I adore this coral orange lip tint that is universally flattering on all women and created with organic ingredients. Created by a fellow makeup artist she really knows how to enhance lips perfectly with bright but sheer color.

5. Tarte LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint in Lively

This is a hot pink blast of color with a super soft velvety finish. It’s also filled with good for you ingredients to keep lips hydrated and healthy.

    Carmindy, What can I do to keep my lipstick from wearing off so quickly. I’ve tried LipChik to no avail. How do the media people do it???

  2. Norma

    You said if you are over 40 to wear a liquid foundation, but what is the best liquid foundation? I am 56 years old and stay out of the sun or use sunscreen, but would like advice on the brand of foundation for my skin.

    Thank you!
