Bold Tangerine Lips

Thursday, August 02, 2012

This summers hottest color is Tangerine and what better way to try the trend than with a lipstick! The look is simple- the winged eyeliner, subtle eyeshadow and dramatic lashes really balance out the intensity of the red/orange lip. Here's how!

1. Highlight the inner corners of the eyes and brow bone with an eyeshadow or powder two shades lighter than your skin tone.

2. Line the upper lash line with our Liquid Eyeliner in 'Black' and wing out the edges. Curl and coat lashes and then apply a pair of our Natural False Lashes for extra drama.

3. Define the brows using our Eyebrow Kit in the shade that best suits you.

4. Using a our Retractable Lip Brush, mix our two Lipsticks in 'Captivating' and 'Fearless' for the perfect red/orange shade. Apply to the lips with the brush for maximum precision.

How easy was that?

I love how this look can be pulled off by pale or darker skin. Definitely a fun trend for summer!

Um, no. I only have a strong appreciation for pink lips. And this is just not working for me.

This is one of the prettiest lip colors I have seen in a long time. Really great for someone who has nice full lips.

I have always wanted to try a tangerine lip but have been so afraid I'd look like a clown! I'm even afraid to wear a lite coral color! Maybe it's time for me to get my feet wet n try something new! And what better way than to use ELF products! My order is on its way!!

I admire this color on the model but I don't know if I could pull it off. I don't know where I would even be able to wear such a bold look!

Love the orange! It's less intense and more playful than a red. Perfect for summer/ fall!

Tangerine lips are gorgeous on the runway! However, in order to make it everyday friendly I would sport a cute coral instead.

Maybe for very tan or darker skin types, but for me no thanks, I'd look washed out. The only tangerine I'm rocking is on my toes!!

I definetly dont think I could pull off the tangerine lips. It just looks so unnatural to me even though I am very dark complected.

I don't like this at all, but I didn't think pink would look good on me either and it does so it could be worth a try.
