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.
