This season’s super hot trend for summer has got to be orange lips.
Two of the UK’s biggest television shows, The Voice and Britain’s Got Talent, both sported their stars wearing an orange lip this weekend. Jessie J rocked a rich opaque orange lip where as Alesha Dixon opted for a more subtle orange gloss.

An orange lip is a great alternative to your classic red and gives a bright pop of colour, perfect for those summer days! You can be as extreme or as soft with this colour as you like, because it is so versatile.
GO BOLD LIKE JESSIE
I used MAC’s Lipstick in Morange to create this bold lip, it is quick and easy and the lipstick is super creamy so it just glides on.
Another way to create a bold lip is to use an orange eyeliner. Below I used MUA’s Intense Colour Eye Liner in Bright Orange.
I then added MUA’s Lip Gloss tube in Shade 4 over the top. This lipgloss is a beautiful peachy gold so it is the perfect compliment to an orange lip!
There are lots of products available to give you the perfect Bold Orange Lip, here are some I recommend:
MAC Lipstick- Morange £13.50
Lime Crime Opaque Lipstick- My Beautiful Rocket $15.99 (Approx £10)
OCC Lip Tar- BETA $14 (Approx £9)
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick- Siren $7.99 (Approx £5)
GO SUBTLE LIKE ALESHA
Alesha Dixon looked great on Britain’s Got Talent and here is a tip for an easy way to get a subtle pop of colour. Using your favourite orange lippy (I used MAC’s Morange) dab the product in the centre of your lips, top and bottom. Now, using your finger blend the product across your whole lip to create the perfect soft colour! This technique is best with a really creamy product that blends well.
You can then add your favourite gloss over the top! I used MUA’s Lipgloss tube in Shade 4.
If you want your lip to be even more natural, try just using a tinted gloss.
Here are some lip products to give you the perfect subtle orange lip:
With just one lipstick and gloss its so easy to create lots of different looks because there are so many different combinations to try out. I am loving my orange lip this season and I think you should all try it out!
