The hottest matte shades for the summer according to each girlfriend. How many did we get right?

The liquid matte lippie craze has been going strong (Thanks Kylie Jenner), and will prevail, at least all through summer.

So here are the hottest shades for the sunny season, and the ones we predict each girl in your #squad will sport. Read on to see how many of this we’ll get right:

1 Bright Pink

The Girl: The Life of the Party

You know her, she’s the one you drag along to social gatherings because she can make a dim sum session with your grandma feel like a party. She’s bold and fun, just like the colour!

The Lippie: Head Over Heels by Ciaté London Liquid Velvet™ Matte Lip Slick

This shade is vibrant, highly pigmented, and just loud enough. Available at Sephora stores.

The Go-to Outfit: Slip Dress

Summer is the season to celebrate shorter lengths and sleeves, so short slip dresses are this girl’s fav. It’s fun, sexy, spunky, and all too easy to throw on for a last minute party invitation – as if she needs any!

2 Nude

The Girl: The Early Bird Who Catches the Trends

She’s the one who told you about liquid matte lippies, heck, she’s the one who introduced Kylie Jenner to it. She’s always trying out looks that look alien at first, then grow on you as you see it appearing in your favourite fashion magazines.

The Lippie: Namaste by Tarte Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint

Nude with a tinge of pink, this lip colour can be worn with a feminine or grungy look. Available at Sephora stores.

The Go-to Outfit: Distressed Denim

Since this girl is never out of style, her go-to pieces are timeless yet never boring, like denim. Distressed styles give her a grungy edge and she often pairs these with trendy kicks or bold coloured heels.

3 True Red

The Girl: The One the Guys Talks to First

She’s so charming, even when she doesn’t speak! There’s something about the way she laughs and holds herself. Plus, that signature red lip is a such a guy magnet.

The Lippie: Insane Red by Clio Professional

This lippie’s formula is highly pigmented and settles into a semi-matte, then matte finish. The vibrant red stands out, complimenting this girl’s charming personality. Available at Sasa stores.

The Lippie: Santa Sangre by Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

This shade borrows from the beauty of red shades while instilling the summery tones of orange – the perfect combo for the season! Available at Sephora stores.

The Go-to Outfit: Shorts

Floral, high waisted, denim, or textured, this girl loves ‘em all! Shorts give her the freedom to play, so she’s always ready for a girl’s day out.

Her look matches her personality, simply tooth ache-inducing! She’s got nothing but nice things to say about everyone and everything –  making her the perfect friend to bring home to your parents.

The Lippie: Honest by The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes

A nice, pretty marriage of orange and pink. This very matte shade gives good pigment for even application and long lasting colour. Available at Sephora stores.

The Go-to Outfit: Sundress

Lightweight and feminine silhouettes in monotones, floral, or kitschy prints. That, and all kinds of sandals – gladiator, bejewelled, platforms, and T-bar – name it and she has it.
