How To: 4 Different Ways To Wear Orange Lips

I know bright bold lips can be quite intimidating for some people, but an orange pout is one of the key trends this season, so I thought I would put together a few different variations, from the extreme night out lip to the easy everyday smacker. Hopefully there will be something for everyone.

4 Ways To Wear Orange Lips
Lets start off easy with a little sheer tint.

Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti
This Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti £7.99 is great if you're a little unsure about bright colours and just want to dip your toes in the water.

Sometimes only a gloss will do!
Maybelline Colour Sensational High Shine Lip Gloss in Electric Orange
This Maybelline Colour Sensational High Shine Lip Gloss in Electric Orange £6.19  is so glossy and gives such a gorgeous a burst of colour, you don't even need to wear a lipstick underneath. It's perfect for those who hate the upkeep of a bight lipstick, but still want some colour.

For me summertime means one thing, be bold or go home!
Mac Morange Lipstick
 Pat on a bit of Mac Morange £15 straight from the bullet, sheer it out with your finger and you're good to go. It really amps up a simple jeans and t-shirt style outfit.

Matte lips?
Revlon Matte Balm in Audacious
Matte lips are a relatively new concept to me, so if you're a bit unsure maybe try the Revlon Matte Balm in Audacious £7.99, it's so easy to apply and is pretty moisturising for a matte lipstick. Obviously it's not going to be as forgiving as the other shades so you have to make sure to apply a hydrating lip balm beforehand.

Will you be rocking orange lips this summer? What's your favourite shade, are you a sheer kind of girl or do you prefer something bold?

    1. Me either, Tutti Fruitti was the one that started me off on the orange lip train :)

  2. Wow, you truly can rock the bold bright orange! I dont go near such bright oranges because of the yellow undertone in my skin! I think the brightest Id go is tutti frutti but the maybelline one looks amazing!

    1. Aww thank you, oh that's a shame, maybe you could try something coral instead :)

  3. Love this orange trend. So sexy and chic! Nice photos dear! Wanna follow each other? Let me know.


  4. I love the revlon balm for a subtle take on the trend x

    1. They are so moisturising but you can still build up the colour which is amazing ;)

  5. I absolutely love orange lips, and I actually own 3/4 of these! The Maybelline gloss looks gorgeous, I've been wearing a very similar one from L'Oreal recently.
