Some things are just assumed. Spring style should include florals, summer makeup should be bright, and brown lip shades should be reserved for fall or winter wear. We happen to disagree with all of the above. Hey, rules were made to be broken.

So what if our summer style happens to include a little leather and you know what else, we like vampy lip shades year ’round. A chocolate-colored lippie is a makeup staple. You can dress it up with a heavy dose of gold shadow and a prismatic highlighter, or dress it down with a little smudged brown eyeliner. It’s a win-win.
