Brighten Up and Take Risks with Tangerine Lip Color

This guest post is courtesy of

While winter tends to lend itself to classic red lips and subtly shimmery shadow, the new year is all about taking risks beyond what's expected and welcoming oncoming trends, right? So before you dismiss the orange lip trend as too difficult to pull off, made just for the models, or just plain fug, hear me out! Tangerine lips are taking the beauty world (and the runways!) by storm, serving as an unexpected pop of color that instantly warms the features, as long as you're not afraid to go bold!

Sure, bright apricot shades aren't necessarily for everyone, so if you're too timid to go full-on opaque orange, opt for a sheer formula like Lipstick Queen's Glossy Pencil in Genre or a gloss like Paul & Joe Beaute in Tangerine for something that's more glossy than concentrated. To jump on the trend without too much color commitment, take baby steps with an orange-y coral shade that's not quite so harsh against soft skin tones. Try Estee Lauder Gloss Stick in Orange Poppy or Chanel Hydrabase Lipstick in Sari Dore. However, if you're ready for the real deal, test out high-impact runway color like Stila Long Wear Lip Color in Outrageous!
