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.
