How to Pick the Perfect Orange Lipstick for Your Skin Tone

orange lipSpring has sprung and this season is all about orange lips! We’ve seen this look on the runway, on our fave celebs, even at the mall or the beach! Whether you’re out on a Friday for girls’ night or heading to a lunch date on a sunny Tuesday, this look suits any occasion when worn correctly and it really brightens up the face.

The great thing about swiping on an orange-hued lip color is that you don’t have to do much with the rest of your makeup. Dab on a little concealer to even things out, apply some mascara, and the bright lips will do the rest and tie everything together seamlessly. The trick is finding the right orange for your skin tone. We’ve put together some quick tips to keep in mind while you shop!

  • If you are fair-skinned with blue undertones, this look is perfect for you. Try a bright, true orange to really stand out!
  • For fair skin with yellow undertones, go for a coral. This will pack a punch but still look natural with your skin tone.
  • Go straight up neon when it comes to golden skin tones. Have fun with this! The contrast is eye-catching and gorgeous.
  • As far as olive skin tones, warm oranges or apricot shades work best. This pop of color will enhance your natural skin tone and look stunning.
  • For darker skin tones, go for a red based orange. This looks fresh and will be sure to turn heads!
  • If you’re having a hard time finding the right color, a sheer toned melon hue is universally beautiful on all skin tones. A gloss or tinted lip balm in this color will be flawless! It will give you a little lip color without overwhelming.
