You might be confident enough to wear red lipstick on a regular basis, but what about orange? If you never thought this hue would become trendy, actress Jessica Alba is here to break it to you that orange is in! The celebrity rocked orange on her lips at the Golden Globes earlier this year, and it doesn’t seem like this color is going anywhere anytime soon, according to Us Weekly magazine.
Why? Blame it on spring! More people are turning toward pastel pinks, baby blues and soft lavenders when it comes to their makeup. If you’re interested in trying something new, you may just want to give Alba’s look a whirl. Believe it or not, wearing this look is easy and you don’t need to be a celebrity to flaunt it!
First, Real Simple magazine encourages you to look for other makeup that will complement your pout once your lipstick is on. This usually involves peachy blush and neutral eyeshadow. Next, don’t be afraid to opt for shine! A glistening pout can help you highlight the color of the lipstick. Finally, be confident that you can pull off the look, just as you would with a bold red or violet.
