Summer in Japan is the perfect time to emphasize your look through lip shades. Since it is so hot you would probably not want to apply layers of makeup but instead keep it more natural. Why not give the ‘Glass Skin’ trend a go while you’re at it. Instead of having it bold, many go to a natural lip color; tints and glosses more than matte lipsticks. You can find different shades, brands and texture in any local drug store.
There are definitely so many colors to pick from, but here are the most trending lip shades in Japan this summer:
1. Opera Lip Tint
This lip tint in Japan is very popular! You can find it at almost every drug store and see many people using it. It comes in 6 different colors (you can sometimes find limited colors in the lineup that are only available for a short time) and definitely gives your lips a pop of color. This non-sticky formula not only provides a long-lasting impact, it also moisturizes, perfect for summer weather. With a transparent tint, enhance your natural lip color, making it ideal for your on-the-go makeup look.
