Trend Alert: Orange Lips For Summer

Orange is all the rage for the summer pout, and while you may be thinking, "this is SO not wearable," think again... orange can be liberating - and quite spectacular - if you let it!

Here are some tips - and kissable orange hues - to try for summer:

1 - While a bold orange may be too theatrical, a coral hue (has a dab of pink in it) is just as fun but a bit more practical.

2 - A gloss with an orange tint will give you the trend without the dramatics of a matte lippy.

3 - You needn't wear a full face of makeup when working an orange lip. Some mascara and an apricot blush and you're good to go.

4 - Try dabbing a bold orange lippy onto your finger and blending with some Vaseline (or any clear gloss of your choosing) to create a glossy stain that is both pigmented but slightly understated.

5 - Favorite oranges: Jouer tint in Poppy (a sheer coral); Nars Lip Gloss in Giza (nectar); YSL ROUGE PUR COUTURE SPF15 13 Le Orange (Bright Orange)
