1. Preparation

Tips on How to Wear Orange Lipstick

You have to, of course, first take care of the basics. Lipstick of any sort looks bad if there is any kind of hair above your lips. You may not see it, but it’s there. When you wax it, everything will look so much better. And the pain – it’s worth it. No one wants a woman with mustache.

2. White Teeth Make a Difference

As the color orange has a yellow pigment to it, it will just accent the yellow in your teeth.  If your teeth are a bit yellow, forget orange lipstick as it will only make it worse. Try bleaching it. Here’s a home recipe for making your teeth whiter – buy some soda bicarbonate mix it with a drop of lemon juice. Brush your teeth with the mix – it will make them instantly whiter. You can only do this once a week, and the results are whopping.

3. Pick the Right Shade of Orange

Now that you’ve done the really boring part, it’s time for the fun to start. Pick the right shade of orange.

If your skin has an English rose feel to it, use the peach shade of orange. It will make you look like a fairy. Avoid the really electric shades because they will make you look like a lunatic from the ‘80s.

Mid-orange lipstick is perfect for olive skin – it will make you look like a young Monica Belluci. If you have really, really dark skin, consider yourself blessed. Dark skin and orange lipstick are a match made in heaven! You can rock any shade you want – from peachy orange to the really electric orange.

4. Apply It Correctly

Application is very important. Now that you’ve picked the perfect shade for yourself, don’t ruin it with bad application. Buy a lip liner and draw the contour of your lips. Put your perfect lipstick and then apply a tad bit of loose powder over it to make the lipstick stay put.

Orange lipsticks come in different finishes, such as matte, glossy, and metallic. Experiment with different finishes to find the one that works best for you.

5. Match It

You’re wondering what more is there to it, don’t get us started. No matter how good the lipstick looks on you, you can always easily ruin it with the rest of your make up. Try not to over do the rest of your make up. The only colour that goes well with orange lipstick is black. Use the darkest shade of black mascara. If it’s night time and you’re going somewhere special, you can do a cat eye with a kohl pencil or/and eye liner. The combination of orange lipstick and cat eyes will make you look very exotic. It’s a really cool look that almost no one uses.

6. Be confident

Wearing a bold lip color like orange requires confidence. Be bold and wear your lipstick with pride!

So, darling, now that you know how to wear orange lipstick and that you look amazing go ahead and BE amazing! Knock them dead!
