If you broke up with lipstick during the pandemic, it’s time to kiss and make up.



After over a year of only dramatic eye looks with masks on, this summer is slowly bringing back lipstick as mask mandates are lifted and people are vaccinated.



Since there is nothing worse than ruining a mask with a blotch of red lipstick, many turned away from doing the lower half of their faces at all. Now, a pop of color is needed more than ever — and makeup experts agree.
“This summer, I am excited to see any lip at all. After over a year of wearing masks, I am thrilled at the idea of wearing color, and showing off our gorgeous lips,” Nick Lujan, Kevyn Aucoin’s director of artistry and education, told The Post. “My eye is drawn to bold bright and fearless colors. If there has ever been a time for bold lips, it is now.”



If you aren’t quite ready to go bold or haven’t yet been maskless, a nude lip is a great option, too. Sophie Shab, the founder of the viral Instagram beauty account Trendmood, predicts that nude colors will still be in for summer as masks are still being worn, but to expect a change for the fall.



“I personally think that this summer we are still in the transition of getting out of the pandemic and some of us still wear masks, so I think nudes and natural lips are still going to be the trend but I’m looking forward to fall,” Shab told The Post. “I love fall makeup looks. I’m hoping to see more bold dark lips, like dark burgundy, plum, brown, red and terracotta.”



Be it bright or more subdued, lip sticks, stains and glosses are for everyone, and half the fun is collecting a bunch of brands and experimenting.



“I would say, don’t be afraid to experiment with lip colors that are outside of your comfort zone,” advised Tiffany Thurston Scott, CEO and co-founder of RÓEN Beauty. “Sometimes the shades can look intimidating when they are in the vial but will end up looking stunning on. Plus, it‘s always fun to play.”



“You just have to go for it and commit to the look,” echoed Kate Synnott, who is RÓEN Beauty’s creative director. “We’ve kept our lips hidden for long enough and it’s exciting to be mask-free in California and incorporate your lip into your look.”



If you’re ready to rock a lip, we’ve rounded up the best lipstick brands and shades for summer. Recommended by the experts, kiss boring makeup looks goodbye as we enter into the rest of summer and the start of fall 2021.
