Bobbi Brown Art Stick Liquid Lip

Liquid lipsticks are ideal for no-budge color but can be drying. Bobbi Brown's Art Stick Liquid Lip in Azalea ($28; sephora.com) has a more moisturizing formula, so it won't dry out your lips on a hot day (here's how to apply a bold lip).

MAC Cosmetics Crémeblend Blush

Cream blushes allow for easy application, so they're the best option for shades that could go from zero to clown real fast. MAC's crémeblend blush in So Sweet, So Easy ($23; bloomingdales) looks intense in the pot but gives a gorgeous rosy tint.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

You don't have to be Rihanna to pull off purple lipstick (though it helps). Urban Decay's Vice lipstick in the shade Crank ($17; urbandecay.com) is a flattering shade somewhere between pink and purple with a bold matte finish.
