The orange lip is a very bold choice for makeup and will certainly draw attention. As a makeup artist, whenever I apply a strong lip color on someone, I always start with that feature first. Begin with the dominant feature you are creating… whether it be a bold lip or a smoky eye, and then build the rest of your makeup around that feature.
This allows you to customize your makeup around the bold feature you want to draw attention to. It makes sure that the rest of your makeup is customized to go along with your orange lip, and doesn’t fight for attention.
When applying a strong lip color, first apply a little of your foundation and powder to your lips. This will help create a matte texture on your lips and keep the lipstick from feathering and moving throughout the day.
I always use a lip liner first to create a bold lip color. The lip liner I used here was Orange Red by Makeup Forever. It’s part of their aqua line, which is a long wearing, waterproof formula.
The orange lipstick I used was Saigon Summer by MAC. I used a lip brush to apply the lipstick with short, feathery strokes. This allows the lipstick to blend into the lip liner color better, and you end up using less of your lipstick that way.
