“Orange is a pop of color that we’re seeing everywhere!” says MAC makeup artist Keri Blair. And while our obsession with orange lipstick is well documented, this particular shade is more than just a swipe-and-go situation. Blair, who’s spearheaded tons of makeup looks at fashion week, breaks down the stunning, bold trend for us:
“If you have more of an olive/yellow-ish undertone like Taylor Schilling, a clean, yellow-based orange like MAC Lipstick in Morange will do the trick. If you have a deeper skin tone, go for color that’s a little darker like MAC Lipstick in So Chard to give it depth. Either way, the most important thing about this look is to remember to line your lips. It not only creates more precision, it also helps give the lipstick more staying power. If you’re trying to reshape your lip to make them look fuller or more sharp, use a pencil that’s the same color of your natural lips. If you’re looking to increase the intensity of the orange, try a matching orange shade like MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in What a Blast.”
A cool lipstick look that’ll last all day long? We’re in!
