Spring 2014 Trend: Orange Lips
Today I thought I would talk about one of the trends that was seen a lot on the catwalks of the fashion world a few weeks ago, and the trend is orange lips. Yes, I can hear you all shouting Euurggh, I cant pull that colour off, But I am going to try and show you how you can adapt the trend to make it work for you.
I, myself tend to wear any colour whether I think I can pull it off or not, so I wear bright orange, peach and corals all the time. So even if you think you cant pull of the neon, in your face orange lipstick then you can just soften the look by using lighter versions of the shade. There are many brands that include oranges in their lipstick range and so I'm sure that there will be something to suit everyone.
Below I will list just a few of the orange shades that I have in my collection, that you may already own too.
First on the list is Mac's Morange
This is a very "in your face" orange and I have to outline my lips using a lip liner because this one does have a little tendency to bleed around the lip line. A great way to make this sort of colour last is to apply a coat, then blot with tissue and then re apply.
One tip I will suggest though is not to have any other orange in your face make up as it can be a little over kill, so don't wear any orange shades of blush, or orange shades in your eye shadow. You could wear bright orange nails though to tie the whole look together.
The next orange lip colour is L'Oreal's Caresse Princess Lip Paint.
This is from a fabulous range of lip colour's from L'Oreal. They apply like a gloss with a doe foot applicator, but then look like a lipstick and then after a few hours look like a lip stain as it leaves a definite stain to your lips. These last for ages and look great even after eating or drinking. This colour is very pigmented and applies to the lips very easily.
Next up is Maybelline's Shocking Coral
And last but not least is a Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in the shade Rendezvous. I love these as they are just like drawing on your lips with a crayon, but still give great pigmentation and really leave your lips feeling moisturised and not drying in any way.
Love and hugs.
