You need to be rocking orange lips all summer long. This season, go for bold beauty and show your confidence! Here are our suggestions to get you started.

Orange lips are the way to go if you’re looking for a bold, bright way to update you’re makeup.  While the thought of orange lips may sound scary to most, they are actually quite easy to pull off when done right. Orange lips are like the summer cousin of the bold red or berry lips that you don in the fall and winter months, and will add an overall warmth to your complexion. If you’re ready to take the plunge, follow these easy steps for how to rock orange lips this summer.

1. Find the Perfect Colour Match

The one thing that will ruin your makeup look is wearing an orange shade that clashes with your skin tone. There are many orange shades out there, from deeper terra-cotta shades to pinker corals, so make sure to go for one that really suits you. If you’re unsure, it’s best to go to a makeup counter where they can help you figure out your undertones and match you to the best lip colour for your complexion. This way you can rock orange lips confidently without being insecure any shades are clashing.

2. Don’t Wear Too Much Base Makeup

Try to avoid caking on too much foundation, concealer or powder for this look. If your skin looks too flat or mattified, it can make the look go from glam to clownish. Opt for a tinted moisturiser or a light coverage foundation with a natural to dewy finish so that your base makeup still looks like your natural skin. Of course, if you have oily skin, then a matte skin tint will also do the trick.

3. Go for a Subtle Glow

This look works really well if you add a very subtle highlight to the apples of your cheeks, down the bridge of your nose, on your brow bone and on your cupid’s bow. The key word here is subtle — try not to overdo it as you don’t want to take attention away from your orange lips. Instead, your highlighter should work to give you the appearance of healthy, sun-kissed skin.

4. Pair your Lip with Like-Colours

In order to complement your orange lip, find an eyeshadow and blush in a similar yet more muted shade than your lipstick. For your eyes, a warm beige or peachy-pink can add some extra warmth to your look. For your cheeks, go for a nude peach to add the tiniest bit of colour back onto the rest of your face so that your makeup doesn’t look too stark. As usual, a light hand is key.

5. Brush up Your Brows to Add Contrast

Sometimes if you wear a bold lip colour, the top half of your face can look a bit dull or lacking in contrast. To counteract this, make sure to fill in and brush up your brows (if you don’t already have thick brows) to help add emphasis to the top of your face. A natural, feathery lash will be best as it won’t look too harsh against your orange lip, but will still balance out your face.

6. Keep the Rest of Your Look Minimal

At the end of the day, the key to rocking orange lips is to make your lips the focal point of your face. So don’t overdo it on the rest of your face makeup and let your lips shine. Skip a complicated eye makeup look and maybe just opt for mascara and a single swipe of an eyeshadow. For this look, you can also skip contouring and bronzer, as it may clash with the orange tones of the rest of the makeup.
