There are some aspects of makeup that we see as a Mount Everest of sorts. It’s a goal we consider and mill over—especially when we see someone else successfully achieve it, but never really go for because it’s too intimidating or lofty. Before you start the eye-rolling over our dramatic mountain-climbing scenario, think about the last time you set your eyes on a beautiful tube of orange lipstick. Most likely, the vivid tangerine or coral hue dazzled you and made your mind marinate on all the endless makeup possibilities. But, alas, something held you back. Maybe it was fear of the unknown and/or migrating beyond your comfort zone of red, nude and soft pink lip shades. Whatever it is that kept you from picking up that orange dream, it’s time to let it fall by the wayside. Because, this year is all about unexpected, bold pops of color, and bright tangerine lips are huge power players in this makeup revival. Find out why you need to conquer the orange lip game once and for all.
