How to Wear Orange Lipstick

The Only Trick You Need to Ace the Orange Lip Trend

Unless you've been under a rock for most of award season, you've noticed that orange lipstick is having a serious moment. Not only did we spot it on the runways last Fashion Week, but celebrities have also taken to the hue.

"I love the orange lip trend that is happening on the red carpet and runways," says Katie Hughes, the global color ambassador for Butter London. "It is a bold color that is absolutely gorgeous on so many skin tones and is playful yet glamorous."

But before you claim that you absolutely cannot pull this shade off, take a step back. Orange is actually a very wearable color. "To find the most flattering shade for everyday use, find oranges that are less yellow and more red. The look will be less neon but just as impactful," Hughes explains. "My favorite is Butter London's Lippy Tinted Balm in Apricot Sunray ($20), and you can wear it over a red or orange lip liner for more impact." Hughes also suggests toning down your eye makeup when wearing an orange color so the focus can really be on your lips.

I think the color suits her. That big awkward smear of lipstick does not.

She's a pretty girl, but orange lipstick makes her look like she's a mental patient. I think because the lipstick is over the lip line, it seems, like she just drew it in a circle. I'm not sure if it's the colour or application I don't like here...

Yeah, is that Sienna Miller in the picture? It doesn't even look like her. Is she wearing her lipstick way outside the natural lip-line or something?
