If orange had to describe itself in three words it would probably be warm, vibrant and confident. Basically, the perfect shade to embrace this summer, right?
While orange may look like a tricky lip colour to wear, it’s a universally flattering colour that warms and brighten any skin tone.
Here are 5 ways to rock an orange lip this summer:
If bold lipstick is your jam, get into the summer spirit with a radiant tangerine shade. Smooth on your lips directly from the tube, then use your shading brush to work pigment into the skin for a long-lasting, luxe look. Keep your lips the focus with a slightly winged black liner, lots of mascara and peachy-bronze cheek.
The Long Haul
Looking for something that will take you from dawn to dusk? Try a lip paint. A little goes a looong way, so dab a small amount in the center of your lips and blend outward with your retractable lip brush.
#ProTip: Protect and hydrate your lips—apply a lip balm with SPF and allow to soak into skin for a few minutes before applying pigment.
Just a Hint
Feeling a tad colour-phobic? Take baby steps with a super sheer lip colour. Wear alone or layer over a nude lip pencil for longer-lasting coverage.
Nothing sets off a golden tan or naturally dark skin tones like a shiny blaze of orange. Go big or go home!
