Red lipstick is a universal classic and has yet to go out of style, but like everything in life, variety is key.
Enter frame: Bright orange lipchook!
Ghels and gheys, ponkan-colored lippies are the new red lipstick!
My Top 3:
YSL Rouge Pur Couture in “Le Orange” – I love this lipchook! In fact, I’m on my second tube already! Pinapapak ko lang naman s’ya. Haha! I like the consistency and smell of this lipstick. The color is red-orange so if you’re used to wearing red lippies but not quite ready to wear a full-on bright orange hue, this one is for you.
MAC Cosmetics in “Morange” – The bright orange color is an instant pick-me-upper! It glides easily on your lips and has a bit of moisture. I suggest that you use a lip liner for this as it tends to smudge easily.
Makeup For Ever in no. “40” – If you want a show-stopping orange lipstick, this will definitely turn heads! This particular color is not for the faint of heart. You need attitude to carry this kind of day-glo hue. It’s matte and it’s long-wearing — it’s perfect for the party girl.
The best thing about orange lipstick? Anyone can wear it. The range of orange shades can complement any skin tone.
Choose a color based on your undertones. If your skin is olive, orange-y reds look best (my recommendation is YSL Rouge Pur Couture in “Le Orange”). Bright orange — in cooler tones — are instant tooth brighteners (try MAC in Morange and Makeup For Ever in no. “40”). They look good on everyone.
The brighter the shade, the less makeup you need on the rest of your face.
