This spring, it was announced that orange is the new trendy lip colour to experiment with. On the runways of DKNY, Prabal Gurung, and DSquared2, models sported an orange lip. Apparently, they all had the same spurt of inspiration. This is no coincidence. In the springtime, beauty looks tend to deviate towards the brighter colours on the spectrum. While fall was all about the purple lip, spring takes us to a more playful place.
The real question is: will orange lips be replacing red?
I recently purchased my very own orangey lipstick, the classic Lady Danger by M.A.C, and I encourage you to try purchasing this shade of lipstick for the spring instead of your classic red. Now, don't be mistaken. I am not telling you to abandon red, but merely to try something brighter this season. Lady Danger is an orangey red, so if you aren't yet ready for neon orange, this is your best bet. If you prefer a bolder statement, Lancome's Rouge in Love Lipstick in Madame Tulip is an amazing choice. For a cheaper drugstore orange, try Maybelline New York Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Electric Orange for a mere 8$.
Are you ready to go orange this season? I know I am.
