At practically every spring 2014 runway show, one makeup trend took the stage: ORANGE LIPS. I LOVE this trend!
Before you laugh and chalk this look up to wild designer craziness, think about this: the right orange lipstick for your skin tone can make your entire face GLOW. Its so fun and youthful!
You just need a few tips and the right product to make it work!
#1 Make sure the orange you choose works for your skin color/tone. If you're pale or have pink undertones, go for oranges that have more coral or red undertones. Orange lipstick will really POP against your skin!
Warm skin tones and medium complexions can get away with bolder shades or orange that has gold/yellow undertones in them. It will really give your skin warmth. If you have dark skin, your best bet is to stick with oranges that contain a brown or deep-red base.
#2 It's really important to cover skin flaws with a good foundation/concealer because orange lipstick will just accentuate them. Keep eye shadow and eyeliner to a minimum.
#3 Keep your clothes in mind. Black and white, florals, and shades emerald green and sapphire look stunning with orange lips. An orange or red sweater -- maybe not so much. :/
Have you tried the orange lipstick trend? Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and try this! You will really stand out (in a good way!) and look FAB!
