Rock an orange lip - Which shade will suit you?

Celeb - Orange lipstick - Make up - choosing lipstick - how to - orange lip


One of the other key beauty trends this spring and summer other than purple is orange.
This trend involves natural looking make up with all the emphasis on the lips. Seen all over the catwalks and celebs this trend isn't going anywhere fast.

Athough it can seem quite frightening when pulled off correctly the look is fun and stylish. Here is my guide to wearing this trend.


Match the shade to your skin

Tanned skins
Orange looks with tanned or olive toned skin. If this is you go bold and neon. For added wow factor try a matte bright orange. Go as bold and as bright as you dare!

Darker Skins
Richer and burnt orange shades look best against your skin tone. Matte or gloss you can wear it all.

Fairer skins
To stop the orange washing you out go for a softer tint or a lipstick with a hint of shine rather than an opaque matte. Opt for a coral or peach toned orange as this is most flattering to you skin tone. Pastel shades look really pretty as well.

Match pick an orange shade based on your skin tone.

To find out which skin tone you have check out this post What skin tone do you have?

Cool skin tones
To compliment the cool tones to your skin, go for a red or coral based lipstick

Warm skin tones
The best shades to go for are yellow or golden based orange colours.

How to wear it?
  • When wearing a statement colour like Orange its important to play down your eyes and let your lips do the talking. 
  • To really rock this look go for a natural look on the rest of your face a few lashings of mascara and a slick of black eyeliner should be as bold as your eye make up gets. 
  • If your going to wear a blusher go for a similar tone as your lipstick, Yet keep it light otherwise you'll look like a clown.

Will you be rocking this trend? Have you got any orange lipsticks? Which colours will you be wearing on your lips this spring?

Lots of Love,

  1. I'm not very confident with lip colour and the idea of an orange lip definitely scares me! I'm still undecided as to whether I like the look or not though to be honest...

    1. I think you have to be really confident to pull off the full on orange lip but maybe you can wear a corally shade xxxx

  2. Im a huge fan of a coral/orange lip! I have a few MAC empties which I need to take to MAC and trade in for a new lippy and an orange one is on the list!

  3. I've tried one orange lipstick before and I hated it so much on me I haven't tried any other one, the closest I get is a coral one that's more orange than red and I still find it very challenging to wear it although I quite like it! I guess it's because I'm not used to it and it's quite out of my comfort zone, I'm much better with red and dark pink lipsticks so I guess I just have to keep wearing it until I get used to it! Thanks for the post! I feel like going out and finding a shade that I'm comfortable with and that goes with my skin :)

  7. As I said on Twitter I was rocking Mac Neon Orange from one of their collections last year and this year I'll be turning to the new Revlon Lip Balm in the the orange shade as well. Rimmel Coral Queen is a good pinky orange that I find I can wear for work (today in fact) that might be a good starting point for the less confident.

  11. Orange is definitely a trend and I hope I will be able to pull it off this summer. Having fair skin with golden undertone it should not be too difficult, but I am still looking fot the best shade.

  13. I tried on an orange lippy in MAC a few months ago, it was nothing short of a disaster! haha. After a long hunt I ended up purchasing Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede lipstick in 'Designer' I love it, it's more of a red/orange which I think I suit much better!
