According to beauty experts, “orange is the new red” in the world of lipsticks. From bright “tangerine” orange to soft, natural, peachy shades, there is a hue to match every skin tone, but you must choose wisely. Orange isn’t an easy color to wear! Electric, vibrant shades that we have seen at Rag &Bone, Dennis Basso, Prabal Gurung and DNKY show will look great on healthy and tanned skin with just a bit of mascara. To achieve this look, among other lipsticks you can use Chanel Rouge Allure Intense Lip Color in Incandesente, Lancome Rouge in Love Lipstick in Madame Tulipe or Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Orange.
We have also seen orange lipstick at Creatures of the Wind show and NARS created a look for the runway. Lead artist James Boehmer said that the makeup was inspired by the artist Eugene von Bruenchenhein. He used NARS Timanfaya Satin Lip Pencil for the lips and white Iceland Duo eyeshadow for the eyes.
However, if your skin is pale, neon orange can be a disastrous choice. To find a shade that will match your delicate ivory skin tone you should browse through natural color palettes and choose a shade of soft peachy orange that suits you best. To recreate the look seen at Fendi spring/summer show, you can pick Estee Lauder Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in Fireball or Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti.
Red orange shades look great on dark skin and they also make a perfect evening makeup look unlike the bright tangerine orange. Among other products you can choose Rouge Dior in Trafalgar, Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Color in Maya or MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Sweet Grenadine.
