With sun-kissed complexions and beachy waves on their way, there’s no better time to rock a bright shade of lipstick. This summer, celebs are boldly choosing red as their new go-to lipstick hue. There are a few ways to keep the classic shade looking fresh—click through to see which celebs are doing it right!
Adriana Lima proves that red carpet glamour and a classic red lip are always on-trend, no matter the season. Try Smashbox’s Be Legendary Lipstick ($20) in Legendary for the same classic result.

How do you keep red lips casual? Pair them with an undone bun. Actress Britt Robertson adds some edge to her look by pairing her red lip color with a messy topknot, a perfect way to keep cool on a hot summer day. Make Up For Ever’s Rouge Artist Intense ($20) in Matte Bright Red is the perfect match.
Fresh and luminous skin, dark lashes, and a poppy red lip? Nailed it. Brittany Snow’s orange-red lipstick looks fabulous on her glowing complexion. Try Nars’s Audacious Lipstick ($32) in Lana to get her look.
Instead of choosing a deep true red, try something that veers toward the berry side, à la Jenna Dewan Tatum. Her cool pinkish-red lipstick is perfect for summer and can be worn from day to night. Try Sephora Collection’s Color Lip Last ($13) in Royal Raspberry.

Matte lips always look chic for summer (especially when paired with dewy skin). Let your matte red lip be the center of attention, like Solange Knowles’s. Try Bite Beauty’s Luminous Crème Lipstick Duo ($12) in Tangerine/Lingonberry for a similar look.
Zoë Kravitz shines in bold matte lips and a little unexpected black liner on the eyes, proving you play up both your eyes and your lips (even during the summer months). Try Givenchy’s Le Rouge ($36) in Carmin Escarpin for a similar red.
