When it comes to lipsticks, most ladies prefer to play it safe and would rather go for a red lipstick rather than the orange lipstick. It’s undeniable that when the orange lipstick is applied right, it is always very flattering.
According to instyle.com, below are tips to making the orange lipstick work for you:–THE BASIC TIPS
Forget the matching liner-choose a nude lip pencil to define the perimeter of your pout to avoid a harsh contrast. Go easy on the eyes and take the minimal route with well-groomed brows, a touch of liner, and a few sweeps of mascara. The bold color makes a statement all on its own.
-FIND YOUR SHADE
The fairer you are, the lighter you’ll want the color. Try a peachy hue like Topshop’s Sheer Lipstick in Swirl. If you have olive skin, you can go more intense with the pigment. If your skin is dark, a deep brick orange like MAC’s So Chaud will pop against your complexion without looking chalky.
-ORANGE BRINGS OUT THE REDNESS IN MY SKIN
Start sponging on some foundation! A damp sponge will help the product melt seamlessly into skin. Take extra care to conceal areas where you’re prone to redness, and opt for a yellow finishing powder, which neutralizes ruddy tones in the complexion.
– BRIGHT COLOURS BRINGS OUT THE FLAWS ON MY LIPS
If lips are dry, the pigment will gunk up like soot in a snowbank. To make a homemade lip scrub, mix a quarter teaspoon of sugar with a dab of balm and swirl over lips. Use a small soft brush which will leave lips baby-soft. Be sure to follow with a hydrating balm before applying the lipstick. We love Smith’s Rosebud Salve.
-THE COLOURS ALWAYS LOOKS TOO INTENSE
Try dabbing powder blush in a slightly lighter shade on top of your lipstick. This will desaturate the hue, soften the edges, mattify the finish, and help the color last all night.
