If all the “barely there” looks we’ve seen so far at New York Fashion Week are putting you to sleep, then this upcoming spring beauty trend is sure to wake you up!
Orange lips and nails were the brightest accessory on the Spring 2014 runways at Rag & Bone, Creatures of the Wind and Suno. The citrus color popped against the models’ glowing complexions and it also paired perfectly with black-and-white basics and outlandish floral prints. Rag & Bone set the trend off by creating their own unique orange lip!
Makeup artist Gucci Westman (and Revlon Global Artistic Director) surprised us all with a bright matte orange lip inspired by the Brazil World Cup.
To get that authentic World Cup feel, Gucci wanted a bright and happy color, so she layered Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Mischievous and Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Carnival, both shades coming out in 2014 (now you know!). To get that matte look without drying out your lips, Gucci advises applying a hydrating color as your base (like the ColorBurst) and then a liner over the top to mattify it.
