Summer is officially here which means it’s time to brighten up! When it comes to lip colors this season, we’re smitten with bold pink and coral shades that instantly transform your look and, surprisingly, flatter a variety of skin tones. We checked in with celebrity makeup artist Todra Payne for her expert tips on how to pull off a candy-colored pucker.

Heidi’s deep coral glossy lips are a refreshing update for spring. Want to recreate her pretty pout? Payne comments, “The shimmery, wet lip color is probably two shades of gloss--a deep mango or coral tone with a champagne shimmer popped right in the center of the bottom lip. It gives the lips fullness and ramps up the shine. A light sweep of coral blush and dramatic dark eyes make this a great look for dancing the night away.”

Despite her fair skin and blonde hair, Kirsten proves that she can play with sassy hot pink lip color, too. The actress wisely opted for a color that’s bright, but not too dense; texture is actually just as important in lip colors as hue. If you’re as fair as Kirsten and you’d like to try this look, be sure to find a soft stain with the lightest hint of shimmer. Skip the lip brush on this one and apply with fingertips, so the color doesn’t overpower your face.

Lauren’s gorgeous lip color is a cross between pink and coral – a great compromise between the season’s two hottest shades. To get her look, swipe on a bit of peachy gloss with a liner of the same shade. The liner should be blended well to add dimension. Her liquid-lined eyes, big lashes and slightly exaggerated blush make this look pop. Try it if you have light to tan skin.

Selena looks absolutely adorable in this sweet flower petal lip gloss. “This pink is not too glossy and not to matte. This is a color easily worn by most skin tones. It’s sheer with a kiss of silver shimmer. Getting this look is so easy because you can apply it straight from the tube. Be sure to choose a product that isn’t too shiny,” advises Payne.

Leighton’s lips are sexy and effortless--a great match for her little black dress. To get this look, use a light red lip liner to outline the lips. Then fill in with a pink stain and smudge the two with your fingers, working inward towards the lips. Payne enthuses, “I love this look on slightly sun-kissed skin; but if the color is deepened a little, it’ll work on darker tones, as well!”

Fair to medium-toned women could pull off this flattering shade, which looks best with barely-there blush and neutral eye shadow.

We can’t get enough of this girly matte cotton candy pink lip color on Jessica! It’s feminine, fresh and almost unexpected against her fair skin. This look is easy to achieve with a matte lip liner shaded in as the base color and a slightly darker pink liner around the edges. A soft sweep of pink blush on the cheeks completes this romantic look.

Keep the rest of your makeup sleek and streamlined--a pop of soft pink blush, liquid eyeliner and false lashes keep the look sweet yet sexy.

To get Mischa’s matte pink lip look, apply a moisturizing lip balm on bare lips first and then intensify the look with a deep pink liner. Turn the pencil to the side and shade the lips with the angle until they’re completely covered. Use a tissue to press color into the lips to saturate with color. Keep the rest of the face fresh and bare.

Kristen’s vibrant stained berry shade looks incredible for spring and summer. This look is also perfect for date night when you want to look beautiful with minimal effort. To copy Kristen’s look, apply a deep pink lipstick and matte it down with a tiny bit of face powder. If you can get away with it, leave skin dewy and clean so you have a contrast in textures. A bit of intensified eye makeup and mascara balances the face while keeping the focus on the lips. This look works well on light to caramel-toned girls. Darker skin tones would simply need to deepen the lip shade, but use the same technique.
