One of the beauty trends I have been eyeing for spring is the orange pout. Seen on the DKNY, Rag & Bone and Prabal Gurung Spring 2014 runways, something tells me this will be a trend that is sure to build steam. And given that this is a bit more dramatic than spring’s typical pinks, here are things to consider when exploring the look…
How To Wear Orange Lipstick:
Why you should love this trend:
-It is different from your typical spring pinks – these lips make a statement!
-There is an orange for almost every skin tone – so don’t give up after trying just one!
-They are powerful, like a red lip, but playful at the same time -multidimensional lips, just like you!
Why you should incorporate it now:
-It is a great way to embrace the coming spring, even if the outside temps disagree
-The color will add depth to your winter wardrobe, and then once you start incorporating spring’s pastels the orange will add an unexpected brightness
-Bright lips can stand on their own or with very limited supporting make up
What to look for in a bright orange lipstick:
-High Impact Color: If you are going to go orange, go all in!
-Long Lasting Color: You don’t want a color that will be gone 20 minutes after application. That being said, even the most long lasting of colors can require reapplication, so remember to keep it on you!
-Moisturizing: Bold lips attract attention, so the last thing you want is for your lips to look dry and cracked beneath the color. Going bold is a great time to pick something very moisturizing, as you can really slather it on.
Tell me, will you be embracing the bright orange pout this spring? I’d love to see your take on it! Share your photo with me on Instagram (@northonharper) and tag it #orangepout!
