Orange lips are in! Don’t worry, you read that right. Although some people probably think that orange lips will look hideous, as though you just consumed food laden with poor quality orange colorant, the fact is that runways as well as red carpets have been fun of people sorting orange and peach summer shades. While such a shade would look great when a person is dressed for an award function or is ready to walk the ramp, one wonders whether orange can actually be worn on a day to day basis. Here are a few tips on how you can best cope with this trend!
1. Instead of using an all out lipstick, you should try using a lip balm or stain. Most cosmetic companies offer a range of colors in the form of comfortable glosses and balms. Try on some of these balms as they give a more toned down and natural look instead of the highly glamorous look that simply can’t be worn to work!
2. When someone says ‘Orange’ most people simply imagine the color of the fruit! However, orange comes in a huge variety of hues and shades so you have the freedom to pick one that best suits you. You could chose a soft coral shade for everyday wear or go for a more glamorous shade with hues of red for events and functions.
3. You could also choose to walk the thin line between orange and pink. Peach is often a good color replacement for orange for those people whose skin tone is pale. The color is also not too vibrant and can be easily carried off in formal as well as casual settings. Wearing a glossy shade will enhance the fullness of your lips while providing a more comfortable wear during summers.
4. Always remember that it isn’t necessary for you follow every fashion trend that emerges for a given season. There are several fashion trends prevalent during each season so if you feel that orange isn’t the color for you than simply don’t wear it and go for a more suitable color.
