Trend Spotting: Blood Orange Lips for Spring!

Trend Spotting: Blood Orange Lips for Spring!

Right now, in the world of fashion, we are in the middle of a maj graphic black and white moment, which naturally, in the world of beauty, makes for the perfect occasion to wear a feisty lip color. 

For this super modern look, I tried Illamasqua lip color in Ignite.  It’s an opaque and bright red-orange shade.  You could tone down this highly pigmented shade by opting for a sheer formula, such as a lip gloss or balm, or pat it on with a finger. But I chose to go bold.

With such a vivid color, it’s important to keep the lips the main focus and keep the rest of the makeup slightly defined, but not overdone. 

I kept my face fresh by first spritzing on Tea Tree Therapeutic Spray by c.Booth to prep the skin and control any shine and/or blemishes.  Then using Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation in Vanilla Beige I gave my skin a flawless finish. Finally I created a neutral,  shimmery eye with Simply Vera by Vera Wang Transforming Shadow Duo in #406 and a distinct and somewhat winged out eye liner on the top lashline only using Aqua Black Waterproof Cream Eye Shadow by Make Up For Ever. 

Remember to always have fun with your makeup, but when trying a risqué trend don’t overdo it! Have fun and please show me your blood orange looks below!
