Bright, warm and summery, it’s no wonder that orange is the colour of the season. I mean, we all know and love the colour of ginger hair, but at least orange can be recognised on a wider, more fashion-y scale for its greatness.
From the catwalk to the high street, orange is the hottest colour for summer lipstick. Whether it’s a sheer peach or a true orange, the zesty shade is everywhere.
Understandably, redheads may be apprehensive about wearing orange lipstick. Much like when considering orange clothing, redheads must be extra-careful of selecting a shade of orange.
Despite it looking great on gingers, bright orange may be too daring for some, but it’s not the only orange-y shade rocking lips this season.
Depending on how bold you’re feeling, there’s an orange shade of lipstick for every ginger, timid or brave.
Orange lipsticks with pink undertones are the best options for pale and rosy redheads, as it warms up the complexion, and attracts yet more attention to your red hair!
Make a statement
A daytime bright, but not too bright
Slightly darker than more orange shades; great for an evening look
Not Quite Coral
For those feeling particularly fruity and light; great for daytime use
For those who are feeling timid
If you don’t feel brave enough to go too bright, dab the lipstick on your finger before applying to you lips for an understated hint of a bold look.
If you want to go super-bright, apply the lipstick using a brush to make it full powered.
Orange lipstick can make quite a big statement, so try to tame your other make-up down. Try using a simple slick of mascara, liquid eyeliner and a peachy blush to create a dewy summertime look.
