From tangerines to pretty peaches this fruity shade is appearing on A-List lips worldwide. Runway explains the top five reasons why orange lipstick just works.
1.) IT’S FUN!
Nothing says summer like bright and happy hues. Lemony yellow sunshine, turquoise waves and the bold colors in fabric on the catwalks this season, incorporating orange into your make-up shows that you are fun and arn’t afraid to try new looks that are outside the box.
2.) IT COMPLIMENTS THE SPRING TRENDS
Wearing an orange shade compliments not only the bright pops of color in the Spring wardrobe trends, but the floral and metallic pieces work well if you choose the right shade. Try not to wear a shade that is too bright if you are going with gold or orange fabrics, as you don’t want your colors to clash, or make you appear washed out. Bright colors work best with more neutral ensembles or pastel spring floral pieces.
3.) IT WORKS WITH ALL SKINTONES
Everyone can find the perfect orange that works with their skintone. If you have a warmer, golden tone look for yellow based oranges. If its a shimmer gloss, look for bronze or copper flecks to enhance your glow. For cooler skintones that are more pink, opt for coral or red-orange shades. If you’re fair, opt for pastel peach shades or true orange color, medium to olive skin tones can get away with bright, bold oranges and deep complexions should opt for burnt orange or hues that have a brown or brick tint to them
4.) IT’S SOMETHING NEW
New trends are refreshing. By mixing up your look you can experiment with new hues and looks that work for you. Or maybe you’ll find that it doesn’t. By being able to play with new color groups, it allows you to be creative and play dress up, which is always fun even if it doesn’t become a permanent part of your beauty routine.
5.) IT WORKS FOR DAYWEAR
While traditional red lipstick is sometimes hard to work into wearing to the office or brunch, peachy glosses and nude balms with a hint of orange can liven up daywear without being too over the top.
