This Celeb-Approved Lipstick Shade Is Trending for Summer


Nothing completes a look like a swipe of lipstick. We all have our tried-and-true favorites we turn to in times of need, but it's time to make room on the shelf: Red, a timeless classic, is now trending with a summer twist. Gigi Hadid has been seen rocking the bright neon red from day to night, and even BeyoncГ© hasВ been spotted sporting the red-hot hue.В

The thing is, finding the perfect shade of fiery, orange-y red can seem nearly impossible. Too red, and it looks garish during the day; too orange, and you'll look washed out.В Deciding between Lady Bug and Dangerous or Ruby Valentine and Red Royal isn't asВ always as easy as it seems. But if Bey and Gigi can do it, then so can we (with a narrowed-down, beauty editor-approved list of course).
