Making It Last

"If your lips are dry use a moisturizing consistency.  A great way to maintain to perfect pout is to take the entire lip off and reapply when needed. For the girl on the go use a sheer, glossy tangerine stain."

Complement Your Skintone

"For medium skintone, try an apricot hue. For fair skin, I prefer a tomato-colored orange. For dark skin, tangerine."

Don't Hesitate To Go Bold

"Orange lip color can make you look younger and refreshed… In some cases it can even look natural so don't be intimidated. The only things you'll need to rock this fun trend is confidence and the right shade of orange."
