Glamazon Guide: Tips For Picking The Right Shade of Orange Lipstick!

Hey Glamazons!

One of my go-to colors this season has been orange lipstick. Not only does the right citrus hue add the perfect pop of color to your look but it’s very fresh and fashion-forward.

One of the hard parts of rocking a bold orange lip is finding the shade that’s right for you. Worry no more, lovelies! We’ve compiled our top tips for finding your perfect orange lipstick hue.

Get into it:

Make sure the color you pick accentuates your complexion.

For darker skin, go for bold tangerine hues and shades with blue undertone. If you have fair skin go for peachy, coral colors.

Keep your eye makeup simple.

Orange lips can be pretty eye-catching so there’s no need to go overboard with your eyeshadow and blush selections. Keep it simple. You want to draw stares but the good kind! LOL.

Go matte for a high-fashion effect

Maybe I’m a little biased because I live for a matte lipstick shade but I always feel like you look bold yet understated and chic with a matte lip shade. Just look at how chic this model from a Marc Jacobs runway looks donning the look!

Don’t be afraid to contrast

Jessica Alba showed just how gorg an orange lip looks on the red carpet this year at the Golden Globes when she rocked a bold matte hue that contrasted her peach gown. Don’t be afraid to go bold with your lip color even if your outfit isn’t understated.

She layered the two to tone down the brightness of the orange:
