I feel like this is the year when everyone is looking at me a lot less insane for wearing orange lips & I’m loving it! I’m not afraid to rock a bright eye, cheek, or lip so orange is just too stinking fun no matter where I put it! Leticia of Cosmetics Aficionado put together an awesome blog hop to sing the praises or orange lips so of course I jumped right in! I went the more wild route but if you want to see some wearable orange posts just let me know in the comments!
Technically this is a gradient lip look but many people are calling these ombre lips. I’m not quite sure why… but that’s what they tell me! A gradient is a the fading of 2 or more shades into each other & for this look I paired orange with my natural favorite partner: bright pink. I can’t remember if it was last summer or the summer before but orange & bright pink paired together was SO in. I’ve always loved this combo so fashion be darned I’m going to rock it!
The makeup look I’m wearing was covered in my LORAC Glo-Getter tutorial. But it was pre-mascara so it is far less impressive here 😉 I obviously wear this combo with a more subdued eye…but the lighting was finally right for pictures so I went with it!
What do you think of this combo? Do you love orange lips? What are your favorite orange based shades so I can snap some up? Don’t forget to check out these other orange lip looks! Fabulous!
