Orange lips are all over the runways of the spring / summer 2014 fashion shows. This bold and gorgeous lip colour will surely brighten up anyone’s day – take a look at the tangerine lip look at the Rag & Bone show.
Revlon Global Artistic Director Gucci Westman knew that a pop of color goes a long way which is why she deviated from the brand’s usual nude lip look. While the eyes were kept simple, we still can’t help to be swept away by this look. This just goes to show how powerful this continuing make up trend is.
Getting this look is pretty easy, just read on after the break for our complete how to.
How to: Rag & Bone’s tangerine lips
Priming or prepping your skin is an important step that you should never forget. It keeps your skin healthy and helps your make up stay on longer. Start by washing your face and then applying on some moisturizer or an all-in-one make up primer.
Luminous clear skin is the base needed for this look. To get this, you will need a foundation that’s luminous like Revlon’s PhotoReady BB Cream (Tip: BB Creams also serve as moisturizers and primers. If you’re using one, you have the option to skip the prep stage provided that it gives you the coverage you need).
For areas that need more coverage, you can use a concealer. Just make sure it blends well with your foundation.
To add just a hint of color on your cheeks, lightly dab on a pink colored blush using a blush brush.
Because of the bold lips, the eyes for this look are kept simple. The first this you need to do is to apply brown eyeshadow on your eyelids. For the Rag & Bone show, two shades were used: Revlon Charcoal Onyx and Cocoa which gives a smoky brown colour. After applying the eyeshadow, take some tissue and gently wipe it away to give it a more natural look.
Next, with black liquid eyeliner like Revlon ColorStay Liquid Eyeliner, line your water and lash line just to give your eyes a bit of a pop.
Finish your eyes by curling your lashes and applying one coat of mascara.
The eyebrow for this look basically follows the natural shape. Once you’ve groomed them, fill them in using an eyebrow pencil that’s in the same shade as your hair. Use soft, short strokes for a more natural look.
With this being the main focus of this make up look you will need to be precise. Take a lip brush and use that to fill in your lips. The Rag & Bone show used Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick in Carnival which is then topped with some lip balm.
Making a statement has never been this easy – no need to talk, your tangerine lips will do it for you. Bold lip colors have always been gorgeous but the orange lip trend is in a league of its own.
