Ok, so as predicted a year or so ago... Orange lips have been beyond huge these past few months.
Particularly in Australia, where the women like their makeup sheer, but their statement clear. Ha! That totally rhymed.
So, I wanted to extend on my previous Orange post, to push it further and to take it from just the statement orange lip and the pop of orange on the lid.. And I want to show you the vaired array of colour that allow you to wear this seasons hottest colour, regardless of how you want to wear it.
For those who love the nude lip, but get sick of the usual pink tones of a nude (ie.Myth).. then
Shy Girl has to be your new fav. I reach for this colour again and again and again for women that want to balance their smokey eye or block out their pink lips.
Also, another nude colour that I always like to wear, which is not as light as Shy Girl.. is Peachstock. Found only in MAC Pro Stores, this colour is so easy to wear and works with everything.
For a little bit more colour, brighter, but not too hard to wear- Ravishing one lipstick that i tend to give as presents to everytone. Why? Because everytone loves it! Easy to wear to work, out for drinks, wherever!
For more of a summer or brighter hit.. which you still can wear for a day event or for more for a pop of colour at night- this colour is definately for those wanting a bright lip, but may not want to do a standard orange Vegas Volt is incredible!
And of course, Morange is always the go to colour for those wanting the standard bright orange..
But.... go for other options Neon Orange from the Pro Store is just a wee bight brighter and then there is the Pro Longwear lip cream 'So Good' which will hold for a much longer time, but not dry your lip out or cause feathering like some others.
I want to also emphasise how amazing apricots are to use throughout your makeup looks. Seen alot through recent S/S12 shows.. soft blushes, washes of eyeshadows and apricots pressed into the lips, look amazing on so many skintones.
