Our favorite new makeup look for summer? Brightly colored, matte lips. It might sound simple, but pulling this one off requires a certain amount of visual balance in order to not look one-dimensional. Sure, it's our instinct to have our skin be as shine-free as possible, but a matte lip on matte skin would take it overboard, not to mention be impractical in summer's sweltering temps.
So, we called in makeup artist Bethany Brill to show us how to maximize our chic potential. Check out the fresh summer look on Jem, and let us know what you think. Are you as obsessed with this gorgeous combo of velvety and dewy as we are?
