Orange Lipstick for Cool Undertones
If you have a cool undertone (pink/blue, peach), oranges with a touch of pink will look best. A soft, pastel coral or cool peach shade like Lipstick
in spark will complement fair skin in particular. This sweet, playful color is similar to Pantone's Peach Echo, so you will be right on trend this season. Add a touch of peachy-pink blush to your cheeks to subtly play up your lips.
For a statement lip, try a red-orange like Suede Matte Crayon in crush
. This vintage shade is a beautiful blend of red and orange and will flatter all complexions from fair to deep. Pair it with winged liner, a few swipes of mascara, and you’re ready to go!
Orange Lipstick for Warm Undertones
True orange, like Suede Matte Stick in pop
, is the option for you if you want a color that will wow. Yellow and olive undertones can pull off this electric, tangerine shade best. Olive skin will also look incredible in Lipstick in spiced rum, a warm, copper shade with a bronze glow.
A sheer, red-orange, like Cream Glaze Crayon in jetset
, will warm up lighter complexions or pair perfectly with medium to deep skin. For a bold, matte option, try Suede Matte Crayon in crush, a match for Pantone’s Fiesta. Keep your eye makeup neutral and let these fiery shades have the spotlight.
Orange Lipstick for Every Undertone
If you still think you can’t pull off orange, go for a sheer wash of color. You can make your lipstick sheer by applying it with a light hand or mixing it with a clear gloss. Start with a peach that leans toward the pink end of the spectrum, or a red-orange that’s mostly red. You can also blend a few colors together until you get your ideal, custom orange. Too warm? Mix in peach or coral. Too cool? Add a little red.
