Spring is here, so is the sunshine! And with such weather girls usually want to add some fresh and bright colours to their face. And although I personally love cool tones more (on myself), corals and peaches are the in favour of most people.
In fact, even I am wearing some of those shades today. But nothing to neon and in-your-face, so it will suit most people.

I have used my trusted
The only thing that I like about the hot weather is the fact that I can wear bright lipsticks. I’ve decided to show you six bright shades which I have been wearing a lot lately.

It’s interesting that I have picked up only three brands but I do love their lipsticks a lot.
