The ultimate orange lipstick guide for your Spring beauty needs. Orange lipstick is the bright wake-up call from winter’s plum and wine shades. This lovely shade is more playful and lively but to keep it wearable during the day, lean towards a shade that is more red than yellow.
If your orange is too neon or has too much yellow can be a tad too bold. Of course, if you crave a really orange color then try mixing two drugstore lipsticks to achieve your desired shade.
One more tip to perfecting the orange lip is keeping the rest of your makeup minimal.
Maybelline “Electric Orange,” $7.49
Gorgeous, bright hue that feels so sleek on the lips. With the nourishing benefit of honey nectar the texture gives the perfect finish.
Revlon “Siren,” $6.99
A subtle orange shade with a slight hint of peach. Applies evenly with a finish that offers a hint of luster.
MAC “Neon Orange,” $16
A rich opaque color and more true orange. Offers a silky application, creamy feel, and beautiful tinge of sheen.
Wet ‘n Wild “Purty Persimmon,” $1.99
Rich, velvety color that glides on easily with a lovely, semi-matte finish.
NARS “Heatwave,” $26 (my fave for its redder base)
