Orange has creeped into this years make up trend whether it be a glamorous look or even a casual daytime look, orange is one of the most flattering colours that suits every skintone. I never used to be a fan of orange but when I started to experiment more with make up I began to fall in love with it. Whether it be a subtle shade or a full on bright lip, it's perfect for a summer glow and there's a shade for everyone.

The Liquid Orange

The Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquers are a great favourite of mine and when they were discovered at the beginning of 2013, I knew I had to get my hands on some. The shade 'Luna' is a subtle orange that has a satin finish but dries quite matte. The formula of the lip product is, what I would say, the mediator between a lip gloss and a lipstick, for those days where you're feeling crazy and want a bit of both. The colour is applied quite bright, especially for my skin tone, but when it dries it's actually quite subtle and not too in your face.

The Glossy Orange

For those glossy girls who think a matte lip doesn't suit their cracked lips that mother nature likes to give us (I feel your pain), the Revlon Lip Butters are the perfect option for this case. I have three shades with my first one being 'Juicy Papaya', a gorgeous orange shade with a slight shine. Not only does it give a natural orange colour to the lips, it moisturises them too (PERF!) so that cracked lips are no more! I would say the colour of this is darker than your typical orange but great for a natural make up. I love just popping this on my lips when I'm having one of those lazy make up days!

The Blood Orange

MY FAV. I love this orange shade and I think it really compliments my skintone, particularly when I have a tan. The Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in 'In Love With Ginger' (how cute is the name?!) is my personal favourite when it comes to a good orange lip. The product is highly pigmented with a moisturising formula, giving a subtle glossy finish. I would say that these lipsticks are similar to the amplified MAC lipsticks, in that the colour pay off is amazing and they last for a long time. This colour is a mix between a red and orange and a perfect shade for the summer AND makes your teeth seem whiter, ticks of an extra box for me!

The Bright Orange

Now, when it comes to this type of orange, I'm always a bit hit and miss. I love a bright lip and have really started to get into this look at the moment, however when it comes to orange I'm just not sure. I decided to try out 'Saigon Summer' from MAC  (of course I had to include a MAC lipstick) and at first, I wasn't too keen, but once I wore it a bit more I got used to the colour on my lips and actually love it! It's a cremesheen formula meaning that it applies quite creamy and has a slight sheen to it. I must say though the lasting power of this isn't so great but it still has a place in my heart.
