Trending For Spring: Orange Lips


Orange or Coral lips are very trendy for spring and summer.

However… orange sounds a little scary, right? Don’t worry, it can be very wearable in the right shade! Leaning more towards a light coral stain or gloss will still allow you to wear the trend while not looking clownish. Try pairing this bolder lip with a neutral eye and glowy cheeks for a fresh look. Try not to be too matchy-matchy with a lot of other pops of orange and let your lips be the star!

Jessica Alba rocked orange lips last year at the Golden Globes. She went bold and the shade her makeup artist chose is perfect for her skin tone!

Bold lips were all over Spring runways this year. Not very wearable but certainly fun inspiration!
