What better way to transform your face and whole look with a nice pop of colourful lipstick. It’s time to tuck away your favourite summer berry coloured lippy and make room for the newest on trend colour. With autumn here, we’re shaking up our lipstick faves and throwing in a pop of orange! Ground breaking right – orange in autumn. Although you can’t go wrong with a classic red or pink lip we think its time to mix it up and take the edgier road – rock the orange trend!
Here are our top tips for wearing orange lipstick:
1. Stick to your skin tone
If you have a paler complexion, a yellow or neon tinged orange will wash you out and trust us – it is not a good look. You’re best off with a pink toned orange to brighten your face and draw attention in the best way possible. Coral and salmon shades look good on everyone – it’s universal beauty law.
If you have a darker skin tone we suggest heading for a really bright orange – if you’re going to make a statement with orange why not go all out! Don’t be scared to rock a brighter colour, if anything everyone will love that your not opting for a paler autumn shade and you’ll be the centre of all lip envy!
2. Test out shades first
You’re not going to buy the first car you test drive so why feel stuck with the first lip colour you try. When it comes to orange lipstick chances are you aren’t going to choose the best colour first off. If you do then luck is on your side. But feel free to test the waters – try sampling colours in store, professionals are always willing to help.
3. Matte is your friend
If you’re wanting to go for a more appropriate day time look try using a matte lip colour so you’re not blinding everyone in the office with you high shine gloss ;)
Does it matter what lip brush is used you ask? Absolutely! You don’t want to be left with streaky lips or all of your product left on the brush. Makeup professionals all agree that to get the best look you have to start with the rights tools. With a fab lip brush to do the job there’s no way your lips will be looking drab.
