I can't get enough of summer oranges. They're sweet, sumptuous and satisfying--especially when the mercury starts rising.
I feel the same way about a hot makeup trend--orange lipsticks and glosses. Not only do they pay props to a citrus superstar, but they also allow you to perk up your pout for dramatic day or evening looks.
Orange lips scream sophistication and sass. They provide a pop of captivating color with undertones of red and gold, and make a bold style statement. Plus, a variety of shades can be utilized to complement all types of complexions:
SKIN TYPE SHADE OF ORANGE
Medium light Warm
Medium dark Coral
