12 Tinted Lip Balms That Are Perfect for a Summer Bride
Swipe on a wash of sheer, kissable color for your warm-weather big day.
Tinted balms never go out of style—and after seasons of liquid-lipstick fatigue, we're delighted to return to these quenchers. They glide over lips with a buttery slip in sheer hues that enhance but never overpower. Some shimmer, others shine, but all leave pouts soft and hydrated for hours. What's not to love? Barely-there and incredibly wearable, they're the perfect, yet subtle pop your bridal beauty look was missing.
Summer brides, you need to put the following tinted varieties on your radar. The reason? Beating the heat goes beyond choosing a wedding dress that breathes. Your makeup should feel just as light and breezy, which is why the appeal for these pretty balms skyrockets right along with the temperature. It gets better. Because these formulas are so sheer, shade matching is virtually foolproof—no more worrying if a strong pigment (like those found in matte lipsticks!) is washing you out or working against your skin's undertones. That doesn't mean, however, that these beauties don't deliver their fair share of color. Ahead, get ready to discover virtually every member of the lipstick color family, from corals and berries to true pinks and aubergines.
We were also sure to include high and low formulas. While we're always a fan of designer products, you should know that you can achieve this slightly-stained, always-glossy look with a balm straight from the drugstore. We've also catered to the bride that's keeping her beauty arsenal green and clean ahead of the big day. Click through to discover all of these pretty products for yourself.
