Go Bold. Go Orange for Spring Lip Color
For spring 2011 the runways showcased a lot of color blocking, minimalist sportswear and bright, bold colors. The makeup was no different. One of the most interesting and easily accessible trends this spring (and last spring) is the use of an orange-toned lip. The coral lip is great in a gloss or even a creamy finish, especially for daytime use. It’s a great alternative to red lipstick and a look that goes great with the neutral tones that are also popular this upcoming spring season.
Dior Addict Lip Polish in Glow Expert is a great example to the coral lip with a high gloss shine. It’s 3-D effect will wow you and add a pop of color to what may be a rainy and gray spring day. It is a true orange that will look good with the nude makeup and camel colored tones that are a big hit this year too.
L’oreal’s Color Riche No. 410 (Volcanics) looks incredibly rich and creamy when applied and hydrates your lips while you wear it with the use of Vitamin E and Omega 3. It is a good color to help ease you into this trend.
MAC has a slew of orange toned lipsticks to choose from with names like ‘Morange’ , CB96 and Charismatic you can find a lip color that works well with your skin tone.
Unsure about incorporating such a bold color into your every day lip palette? Just remember to follow the same rules you do with any other makeup. If you have warm undertones to your skin then choose something with a bit of a pink or more coral hue to it. A cooler skin tone and you will want to find an orange that has a hint of blue to its undertone.
