Spring 2014 Trend – Orange Lipstick


It feels like winter is still here, but it’s definitely spring! Although this cold weather is putting a damper on rocking some of your spring 2014 purchases, you can still add spring to your look with makeup–specifically orange lipstick. Orange lips for spring has been trendy for a while, but the bright hue was uber popular on spring 2014 runways! It seemed like almost every designer envisioned an orange pout for their models. MSGM, DKNY, Galliano, Marissa Webb and Dennis Basso are just a handful of designers whose spring 2014 looks included variations of the orange lip.

At the DKNY Spring 2014 show, Maybelline’s Electric Orange and Neon Red were used to create the orange lips. The models at the Rag & Bone Spring 2014 presentation wore Revlon oranges in “Mischievous” (matte balm) and “Carnival” (creamy lipstick).

So you may be wondering, “How do I choose a flattering orange lipstick?” Wearing an orange lip may seem daunting, but it’s super easy to do! If you want to find the best orange lip color for you, here are a few tips:

1. Find an intensity you’re comfortable with. Orange lip colors are available in barely there finishes, bright neons, brick red-oranges and everything in between.

2. Determine your skin’s undertones. If you have warm (yellow/gold/peach) undertones, orange lipsticks with a warmer, yellow base will most likely look best on you. If your undertones are cool (red/blue/pink), orange lip colors with a a cooler, red base are probably the way to go. Do you have mixed or neutral undertones, try yellow and red-based orange lippies.

3. Figure out your lip color finish preference. You can find orange lip colors with glossy, sheer, creamy, matte and opaque finishes. Before you apply any finish–particularly a matte one–remember to exfoliate your lips!
