The Perfect Everyday Lipstick Shades

Adding lipstick to your makeup routine is a sure fire way to look put together in an instant. On-the-go most of the time, the IBT girls have collected an array of go-to colors (see more of our faves here) to swipe on our lips when we’re headed into a meeting, event, or just to feel a little fresher. Keep these everyday lipstick shades on hand at the office or in your bag because they have the power to take you from drab to fab in 5 seconds.

Our Favorite Everyday Lipstick Shades - Inspired by This

Nude

Our favorite nude-ish lipstick? MAC Viva Glam II. MAC’s signature Viva Glam colors are all must-have-in-your-makeup-bag shades but Viva Glam II is ideal for every. single. day.

We also totally gave in to Kylie Jenner’s lip kit… and we really love it. Candy K liquid lipstick is our choice pick for a nude lipstick.

Pink

Our MAC obsession continues with ‘Brave‘. And ‘Long Legged and Fabulous.’ Brave is that perfect nude – pink mix, and Long Legged and Fabulous is, well, a fabulous shade of baby pink. Anyone else see a trip to the MAC store in their near future?

Does anyone else like using lip liner all over your lips for a matte look? MAC lip liner in Boldly Bare is in our bags all of the time no matter what. It is just a shade darker than our lips that gives that natural, yet defined lip that is always in.

Lip Balm

If you aren’t quite a lipstick convert, but still want that dose of color, a tinted chapstick is the way to go. We love Burt’s Bee’s tinted lip balm in Hibiscus and Botanics tinted lip balm in Guava. Both give off the perfect petal pink tint and are ultra moisturizing.

For a glossy (not sticky!) look, we also love EOS lip balm in the colorful egg containers – it instantly adds moisture and leaves our lips feeling extra soft. We also have to give a shout out to Glossier Balm Dotcom – honestly the name says it all!

For a Little More Color

Although we love a good nude or pink shade, color is totally OK for everyday wear! We’re big fans of Stilla’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso (a firey red), Bella (a hot pink), and Venizia (a red coral). A swipe of one of these bright shades instantly puts a pep in our step and gives us that #girlboss feeling. For an equally rich color, but that is a bit more subdued, Patina is another fave.

Another shade we will always stick by? Nars lipstick in Schiap. If you’re looking for the quintessential neon pink shade, Shiap’s your girl. We’re not lying when we say there are some weeks we wear this every day. NARS Lipstick in Deborah is also a fave. It’s a mauve, chestnut brown shade that is deep yet somehow subtle.

Sonia Kashuk Velvetty Matte Lip Crayon in every shade possible. Apart from the crayon part, this lipstick is as luxurious as it sounds. Velvet? Yes, it rolls on like velvet and works like a charm. This baby was made for all day wear — and it’s uber affordable.

We always love a good recommendation. So tell us, what are your favorite everyday lipstick shades?
