Make orange lips yours this season

While not a traditional lip shade, orange lips have been emerging everywhere from the red carpet to the runway – and the look is more versatile than you might think. Makeup artist Gucci Westman told Allure Magazine that bright orange gives a "warm, sunny effect." She advised sticking with matte shades, as the color is already bold enough without a sparkle or shimmer. Particularly with a summer tan, this hue can infuse the right amount of color with everything from denim during the day to a cocktail dress in the evening. 

If you're sporting the trend for the first time, try sheer lipstick like Paula Dorf's Lip Color Sheer Tint in Rhythm. The formula has SPF15 and hydrates and conditions lips so the color stays smooth and shiny. It's the perfect amount of pigment without being too overpowering.

And if you're eager to join the tangerine craze but are looking to treat lips at the same time, Borghese's B Moisture Advanced Care Lipcolour in Misto Mandarino is ideal. These orange lipsticks contain beta vera, vitamin E and the Acqua di Vita Complex which keep lips moisturized for more long-lasting color. As an added benefit, the product strengthens lips and encourages the production of collagen for a plumping effect.

No matter your skin tone or personal style, orange lips can be yours this summer with the right product and shade.

Orange lips are huge these days!By now, you probably know that Tangerine Tango is Pantone’s color of the year for 2012. That’s probably why so many gals have been walking the streets with orange lips, manis and eye makeup. While it takes a certain degree of boldness to put on a color like this, it’s definitely a great way to ensure that all the attention’s on you.

Celebrities like Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Morrison and Busy Philipps have all been embracing the orange pout, according to Glamour Magazine’s beauty blog. Paired with subtle eyes and cheeks, it’s a great way to rock the trendiest shade in fashion without going overboard.

When you’re wearing an orangey shade of Youngblood – Lipstick, it’s important to wear lip liner underneath to prevent the color from migrating to the area outside of your lip line – otherwise you might end up looking like a little kid who’s been eating an orange popsicle. Jane Iredale – Lip Pencil has you covered. Just pick a shade that’s close to either the lipstick color or the natural shade of your lips. Then go wild!

Orange: unexpectedly chic for eyes, cheeks and lips

Orange is totally hot when it comes to makeup colors!By now, you probably know that Tangerine Tango is Pantone’s color of the year, which means that it’s been popping up everywhere, from gardens to runways to makeup palettes. While you might think that bright orange is a tough shade to pull off, it’s actually a lot more doable than you think. To prove it, Rihanna recently stepped out wearing orange eyeshadow and blush at the Battleship premiere in Tokyo.

According to Glamour Magazine’s beauty blog, the key to wearing orange eyeshadow is to choose a peachy shade that’s on the softer side. Something like Jane Iredale – PurePressed Eye Shadow in Glimmer Gold should do the trick. Just do a wash of color on each lid, then use a darker shade of orange for the crease.

To add to the look, an apricot blush will offset the eyeshadow and make you look positively radiant. Try BORGHESE – Blush Milano in Frascati for a natural-looking flush. Be sure to apply it to the apples of your cheeks, then blend out toward your temples.

As for your lips, a gold-flecked lipgloss will match the orange shadow and blush without making your face look monochromatic. Look for tiny bits of shimmer – not sparkles – to shine without blinding anyone.

Orange lips: trend for spring, great for fallWhile women may have to wait until spring to don the clothes displayed at New York Fashion Week, ladies everywhere can try out the various beauty trends that hit the runways. And, it seems that one look that dominated runways was rocking an orange-colored pout.

"I think a bright lip is an instant lift to any face, so it's an especially fun thing to do for a fashion show," makeup artist Dick Page told

Beauty guru Gucci Westman seemed to agree. "The bright orange adds a freshness to a lot of the whites, greys, silvers mints…It also has a nice futuristic feeling without being too strange," she told the news source. "Very wearable for spring with a squeaky clean face."

And while the trend is posed to be big in spring, those anxious to embrace the citrus tint can do so in autumn – you'll match the bright foliage and you'll be ahead of the curve come springtime.

Babor offers two products that will help any woman create a gorgeous orange-colored pout. Babor Classic Lip Color in Orange, paired with Classic Lip Pencil of the same color, will turn any smile from tame to tangerine.

Recreate Jessica Biel’s orange-colored pout

Recreate Jessica Biel's orange-colored poutSometimes, the biggest statement a gal can make is lacquering her lips with a layer of unexpected color. Instead of sticking with your signature stand-by for your next night on the town, why not stir up some heat with an orange-colored pout?

According to, this bright lipstick, most recently seen on The A-Team’s Jessica Biel, is “the easiest way to look ‘done’ and is fun for a summer night out.” And, thanks to a few insider tricks, mastering a bold-colored smile can be simple.

Before you apply the lip color, condition your lips with a coat of lip balm. Because vibrant colors can pick-up inconsistencies, such as cracked skin and dry flakes, a smooth canvas is paramount to creating the perfect orange pout.

Next, the website suggests using a pencil or stain to keep lip color from bleeding outside of the lines. As an added bonus, you may not have to worry about running to reapply your lip color throughout the night – as your lipstick wears away, you’ll still be left with a great base color from the liner and stain.

Finally, if you want to rock bright-colored lips, remember the cardinal rule of cosmetic application – keep the rest of your makeup minimal. An orange lip looks great when paired with a touch of bronzer and mascara, but could become clown-like when matched with a smoky eye.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19918591-ADNFCR
