What Lip Color You Should Be Wearing, As Decided By Your Favorite Cocktail


new girl

There are, like, so freakin’ many amaze lip colors out there. Good thing? Totally. But it also makes life really hard because how is anyone supposed to afford all 7 of those gorgeous colors you try on during your trip to Sephora?

The answer: You’re not. You’ve got to choose one shade that you’ll make your bitch this summer. And what shade is it going to be? Why not decide based on your go-to drink order?

If you drink: A margarita

Get this lip color: Orange. If you’re a marg drinker you’re probably fun, bold and maybe a little bit wild. You like bright colors and drinking on patios and you never back down from a challenge, which makes you the perfect person to take on the bright orange lipstick challenge.

If you drink: A glass of wine.

Get this lip color: Red. You just ooze class, don’t you? Stick to a clean, ladylike shade of red to best represent your classically fabulous personality.

If you drink: A vodka soda.

Get this lip color: A light pink. You’re a no-fuss, no-frills kind of girl. You prefer to keep things simple and extra flavors and colors just aren’t for you. A simple, light pink will perk up your whole face in the simplest way possible.

If you drink: A beer.

Get this lip color: A hot pink. You’re low maintenance and you like to go with the flow – why not kick it up a notch by opting for a brighter version of a classic color? Hot pink is a slightly elevated take on a neutral pink and on a all-natural girl like you, it’ll make a huge impact.

If you drink: Champagne.

Get this lip color: A Shimmery nude. You’re classy and upscale and super mature. A subtle but glamorous champagne-colored gloss is the way to go.

If you drink: A moscow mule.

Get this lip color: Purple. It’s the trendy shade of the summer and you’re drinking the trendy drink of the summer. Total match made in beauty/bar heaven.
