New Summer Trend: Orange Lipstick

As this Summer season rolls around, the runways of Prada, were filled with bright neon colors. One particular bright trend stands out the most. Bright orange neon lips. Orange lipstick might not have gotten many sales in the past, but as this fun trend hits the season, it’s time to pucker up and showcase a new color. A bunch of different brands offer orange lipstick! If you want a really good quality and price try one from the Wet 'n Wild collection!

After finally figuring out the “classic red” and how to pull that off, you might be left wondering how on earth you can pull off orange! I mean, we are not trying to transform our lips into Snooki’s skin color, after all! Don’t worry, this sun-kissed trend is easy and fun to do.

The best news is that orange flatters almost any skin tone, so you don’t have to worry about finding “the perfect shade”. This time we get to keep it simple, with 3 options. A light shade, a medium shade, or a dark shade. The general rule of thumb, as seen in the runways is, “the lighter your skin tone, the darker the shade”. Of course rules are meant to be broken, so if a particular shade doesn’t suit you, try another. Scroll down if you need help finding a lip shade.



How To Pull Off The Orange Lipstick Trend

Once you find a shade that suits you (scroll below for some major help!), the rest of your makeup should be kept simple. A light matte bronzer will work best on your cheeks. Keep the eyes simple by lining the top lash line with a gel or liquid eyeliner, and wing it out at the ends to create a cat eye effect if you want. The eyeshadow should be kept very simple, nothing more than a bit of light brown eyeshadow on your lids. See this link here, for how to get a simple look to go with the bright orange.) Highlight under your brow bone with a light shimmery color, and skip any other eyeshadows. We want to keep the rest of the face simple in order to avoid looking tacky. Orange is a risqué color, and we don’t want to overdo it.



There is, of course, exceptions to this “keep it simple rule”, but these should generally be saved for fun outdoorsy days like a trip to the amusement park. You can layer on a peachy blush to give your face a flush of color. Add a little mascara to your eye lashes, but leave the rest of the eyes alone. Take Megan Fox for example. Keep your face simple, but like Megan, you can add some blush or bronzer to the apples of your cheeks. Here in this photo she wears orange lipstick with some subtle liquid liner on the top lashes and some mascara. If you want to know how to get Megan Fox's look, check out the video below.

Need To Find The Perfect Lipstick?

Try MAC’s orange lipstick in Temptalia. MAC is renown for making high-quality lip shades, and this one is sure to not run. It’s the perfect basic color to start off with if you’re not sure where to go. Ask a sales associate if you are lost, they can help you find a shade that is right for you. Or bring a friend, there’s nothing better than an honest opinion. If you trust an online source, then that is an even better alternative, if you know the colors are accurate online. (It may be a good idea to check out the return policy on some websites to make sure you can return the product if the shade ends up being to bright orange or dull orange.)


Need something that’s still reliable? Revlon is your go-to company then! For about $7 you can get their orange lipstick. It has a satiny finish and won't dry out your lips. If you find it's still a bit drying for you, apply some lip liner then a bit of lip balm, before you put on the lipstick.

What Clothing To Wear With Orange Lipstick

NOT orange. Any other color is fair game, but the runways have tended to be biased toward white. White t-shirts, white dresses, etc. Pair a flowy shirt with bell-bottoms and some heels or wedges and you will exude this season’s hottest trends!

    This was a fun hub to see all the new colors. The new trends are always fun to see. I liked the orange on the model but it wouldn't be a good color for me. Voted/ rated useful.
