Bright, statement lips are a summer staple. Unfortunately, wearing a heavy, creamy lipstick is not the best idea in sweltering, muggy temps. Instead of caking a thick, matte texture on your pout, Wong suggests trying a stain or a balm. "With sheer products like tinted balms and stains, you can achieve a bright pop of color to your look without adding a thick layer to the lips," she says. "For even coverage, just be sure lips are moisturized and exfoliated before applying a stain."
