If you want to wear orange or another bold color, such as red or Fuchsia but don’t feel brave enough to wear it at full strength:

Rub a warm wet wash cloth to your lips to remove any flakes. Then apply and blot lip balm, next buff in a circular motion the lipstick on with your fingertips. Make sure to stay within the lip line to Soften blot gentle after applying the lip balm on top of the lipstick.

If you want to wear the bold color at full strength:

Aagain use the washcloth followed by lip balm. Then apply the lipstick with a brush – it will stay on longer and look smoother. Lip Liner will help make the lipstick last longer. Start by lining the Cupid’s bow, bold and especially matte colors enable you to ‘cheat’ the lip line and achieve perfectly symmetrical lips (i.e. you can use the pencil onto your skin to make the lips look even) make sure not to go too far outside your lip line. Work from the middle section of your bottom lip, draw out from the Cupid’s bow, into the center of the lower lip and then to the corners of the mouth. Make any corrections from the application with a Q-tip, makeup remover, and if needed use concealer (make sure to blend the concealer out from the lip onto your skin blending well so as to not leave a line of concealer). Open your mouth and fill in the corners so you have a very clean professional finish. Then, fill in with lipstick using your lip brush make sure not too overload the brush with lipstick you can always put more on the brush as you go, too much on the brush can make making mistakes easier. To check symmetry, look in the mirror and tilt your head back. Mistakes will become apparent and you can fix them.

  1. I love your orange picks! I’ve also tried wearing them, but managed to pair it only with an orange t-shirt.

    • It would work with black, white, brown, coral, navy, pink, red it all depends on the shade of lip color you choose. A softer orange would work great with all the colors except maybe black and red. A coral red would work great with all the colors except red. A bright bold orange looks great with all the colors. I’m not a stylist but that’s just my suggestion. You could be very bold and pair bright orange with bright pink for example. You can google images of orange lip color and it comes up with lots of images of women wearing the orange lip in various clothing colors, that can give you some great ideas.
