The Best Lipsticks for a Popsicle-Stained Pout

The Beauty Model

Summer days spent snacking on Popsicles leave lips stained in the most effortless way (literally). The shade depends on the flavor of your sweet treat, but the pretty flush is textureless, thus giving lips a natural-looking flush of color. To re-create this gorgeous effect when you're fresh out of Bomb Pops, you can use a good old-fashioned lip color. You'll want to choose a bright color that will give you a subtle finish that isn't too saturated—a sheer but buildable formula works best. To nail the look, apply the hue of choice on the center of your lips, and use your fingers to diffuse color out (think low-maintenance ombré).
