You’ve been tangoed!! Spring trend – orange lipstick!

I am sure alot of you are seeing that red lipstick is kind of going out the door, and in its place for spring orange lips are making a brighter and bigger statement.  It really came out at NY fashion week at Nanette Lepore’s show.  Now dont be getting any ideas, I am not saying that orange lipstick is making an appearence in Bridal make up 🙂 

Above: Nanette Lepore’s show at FW It was natural makeup with minimal color on the face and a slight big of coloured eyeliner on the eyes and then a nice shade of peach/orange on the lips. 

 At first when you think ‘orange lipstick’ it can seem a bit weird but it actually works really well if used correctly.   A perfect look with orange lips would be to be to slightly bronze the face after foundation, slight smokyness on the eyes using warm browns or bronze tones and plenty of mascara.

Here are my two fave shades available from MAC –

MAC  meltdown, this is a more natural shade and looks well on pale – tanned skin. 

MAC morange -this is richer and would suit darker to olive skin tones.  But again either can be worn depeding on what overall look you are going for!

Have fun experimenting
