Tangerine Dream

Summer is all about bright pops of color. And this summer, hot hues of tangerine, coral and orange are the hot new thing. While we’ve never been shy to wear a bright orange nail, orange lips are a little more daring. But that is exactly what is on trend this season. Not only does this bold hue brighten up the face, but it enhances a subtle tan. My top picks for lips range from hydrating creamy lipsticks to barely-there sheer glosses. Check ‘em out.

1. Sephora and Pantone Universe Color Of The Year Cream Lipstick in Tangerine Tango Cream ($20, Sephora.com)
This is a vibrant but lightweight textured lipstick that looks amazing when paired with a sweep of bronzer to the face and a wash of gold across the lids.

2. Laura Mercier Tangerine Lipstick ($24, Bluemercury.com)
It’s a creamy shade of coral pink lipstick with a nice shine that really lasts. Pair with a black liquid cat eye and a shimmering sweep of highlighter under the brows, on inner corners, center of lids and tops of cheekbones to Carmindize the face.

3. Milani #D Glitzy Glamour Gloss in Stylish ($7.99, Walgreens.com)
An orange gloss with gold and copper flecks, this shade looks beautiful with a swirl of peach blush concentrated on the apples of the cheeks and a full set of black false lashes.

4. Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired By Carmindy Forever Stay Moisture Gloss in Creamsicle ($9.95, Drugstore.com)
This is the perfect light universal coral lip gloss that taste just like it sounds and looks pretty on clean sun-kissed skin at the beach. Add a slick of aqua waterproof eyeliner on the upper lash line.
