Reds and pinks have ruled our pouts for a long time and beautifully so! But once in a while, donning a vibrant orange does no harm. Diverting our gaze from the most staple shades, we’re shining some light on a hue that’s electric, sassy and oh-so-gorgeous, the breathtaking orange. It may not be as conventional as pinks or reds for its a magnetic, eye-striking colour but that’s exactly why orange is definitely a must-have, this season. If you’re also someone who gravitates towards a pink or a purple at every chance you get, this is an equally fun option. A shade so unique, bold and demanding, the perfect orange lipstick is an asset to have in your makeup stash. To get you started, here are a handful of gorgeous options—from bright orange hues to corals and tangerine reds for every skin tone.

How to Apply Orange Lipstick:
Like any other makeup product’s shade, formula and consistency, the application is as important. Just like a red lipstick needs more prepping and effort than a nude lipstick, an orange lipstick also requires a little more. Here’s how you can make it work, every time!
Step 1: Exfoliate your lips
The bold shade can emphasise dry flakes on your lips. Give your lips a smooth canvas for the lipstick to glide onto by exfoliating it first. You can do so with a lip scrub or simply by running your toothbrush gently over your lips.
Step 3: Fill in the pout
Now it’s time for the fun part! Apply your orange shade, starting from the centre and working outwards. If you want, use a small lip brush to get the edges.
Step 4: Clean up on aisle 5
Got some colour outside the lines? Do not fret! Use a nice cleansing water on a Q-tip or lip brush and clean up around your lips. Wipe away your mistakes as if they were never there!
Bonus tip! Pout first:
Keep the rest of your makeup understated: Let the bold orange-red lips take centre stage and go easy with the rest of your makeup. Avoid heavy eye makeup so your lips can stand out!
