Press : FASHION Magazine Beauty Panel [Challenge 51 : How To Wear Orange Lips]

Orange lips is a pretty hard colour to pull off. It really screams “Hey, I’m here!” To get a more subtle finish, you can opt to just use a tinted gloss and it will look very pretty and fresh. Because I’m really fair-skinned, I decided to use a really punchy, bright orange to bring some colour and life to my face. I kept my eyes fairly neutral with a black winged liner. I tried to keep things interesting by adding an accent colour (blue) just under the bottom liner to contrast the orange on my lips. A really subtle detail, but fun to try every once in a while. I also added some clear gloss to highlight underneath my brow bones and top of my cheekbones. Gives a different feel from the regular powder highlighters I usually use. Definitely more sheen.
