Spring Beauty: How to Wear Orange Lipstick

Spring Beauty: How to Wear Orange Lipstick

Looking for a new way to upgrade your look for spring? Try a new lipstick to brighten your beauty.

Last summer the orange lip made its big comeback, and let me tell you, I was a bit hesitant to stow away my go-to pinks and reds and let the mandarin madness takeover. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one, right? Well orange is coming back in a big way this spring and I think it’s time we should all try this trend out. Turns out (to my surprise) that orange looks amazing on every skin tone (!!!), not to mention these cirtus hues have the innate ability to make us feel happy (just a little added bonus). Oh! Also you’ll be 100% on trend, so it’s a win win win!

If you’re still not sure, lets take a look at the runway: models at Moschino SS13 show perfected the orange pucker, while keeping the rest of the makeup subtle (this is key when doing a bold colored lip). Needless to say they all looked amazing!

Still unsure? How about some celeb inspiration? Who could forget how stunning Jessica Alba looked at this years Golden Globes?! She was featured multiple best dressed lists and look: Orange lip!!

Several celebs have developed the orange crush and it’s a knockout on everyone, from fair to dark skin tones:

 Fair

Like Kirsten Dunst, choose a bright orange that has some subtle red hues. Topshop has the perfect shade of orange lip paint.

Medium

Follow in the footsteps of Olivia Wilde, Solange KnowlesKourtney Kardashian and go for a burnt orange. This shade looks perfect on your skin tone, with just the right amount of color without going overboard.

Budget Buy: NYX by NYX Lipstick in Indie Flick, $5.99

Dark

Pick out shades with hues of blue, which will balance out the orange color with your natural lip color. Solange looks amazing in this hue and you can too with MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme in Good to Go.

No matter your skin tone, or even the season, it’s always time to try this trend! Being an unexpected upgrade from the traditional red and universally flattering, there’s no reason not to try!

    Love! I just bought a tube of M.A.C.s Korean Candy. It’s a great shade…and just sheer enough for those not ready to dive in head first into orange!
