Lipstick Trend Alert: Orange

Hello Friends, Orange Lips where the biggest rage at the 2014 Fashion shows. It even made its way from the cat walk to the red carpets at this years awards show! I’m personally crazy for this look and I can’t wait to stock up.  I made a visual so you can see how beautiful this color looks on anyone.  

Today I’m going to give you some tips on how to wear this color for Spring/Summer.

Consider your coloring. True orange shades look especially flattering on blondes and women with caramel-colored skin or darker, while red-orange (i.e. coral) looks good on most skin tones.

If your skin has an English rose feel to it, use the peach shade of orange. It will make you look good!

Mid-orange lipstick is perfect for olive skin –  If you have really, really dark skin, consider yourself blessed. Dark skin and orange lipstick are a match made in heaven! You can rock any shade you want – from peachy orange to the really electric orange.

Go matte. With bold shades—especially eye-catching orange—feathering and fading are more noticeable, so skip glossy formulas that can slip off your lips.

Play with intensity. You don’t have to start with a neon orange right out of the gate. To ease into the look,  dab a fiery orange only on your bottom lip and blend. But if you’re going for all-out vibrant orange, fill in your lips with a matching orange liner and apply color straight from the tube.

Make your skin glow. Since orange lipstick can draw attention to redness and blemishes, cover flaws with a light-to-medium-coverage foundation. Then add bronzer. A lot of it. Dust over our cheekbones, across our forehead, and down the bridge of our nose. The result is beachy, exotic, and supersexy.

  1. Love this post! I recently bought one of Rimmel’s lip lacquers in similar color and I love it! In love with this color!

    1. Does your skin have more of a pink or red tone to it? If so Lean towards red or coral based oranges for a more natural look. If there is shimmer in the lipstick, look for those with silver, opal or white shimmer.
