Summer Trend Orange Lips

With summer in full effect, who wants to pile on a face of makeup to look fabulous and stunning?  Not me.  And the fact of the matter is that you don’t have wear full-on makeup to turn heads during these summer months.

Just as we shed layers of clothing and adopt a “less-is-more” attitude with our fashion sense, we should do the same with our makeup.

One makeup look that I am particularly enamored with for summer is a bold lip paired with a minimalist face.  A bold orange lip was featured by M.A.C at the Nordstrom Summer Makeup Trend Show, and I fell in love with it.

Bright, bold tangerine lips spoke volumes against a face that was kissed with bronzer (strategically placed to fake supermodel cheekbones) and a flick of mascara.

The spring runways showed shades of orange in coral, tangerine, coral and peach in a variety of textures—from matte to super slick and shiny gloss.  The choices are endless, but I managed to narrow mine down to a few favorites.  Let me know what your favorite orange lippie is and you just might find it in your mailbox.

Try on your bold orange lip and email a photo for our upcoming readers page!  I’m sure your inner-summer-stunner alter ego will come to life.
