Orange Isn’t The New Black: For Spring, it’s the New Lip.
Red lips have been having a major beauty moment the past few seasons but this spring, there’s a new hue in town fighting for your attention. Orange lips, while somewhat unconventional, are easier to do and more flattering than you might think. Orange is a powerful statement, and a very Happy color! Not to mention, it’s beautiful on all skin tones, whether you are pale or dark or have yellower undertones.
Warm skin tones: If you have more yellow/golden tones to your skin, look for yellow based oranges.
Cool skin tones: Does your skin have more of a pink or red tone to it? Lean towards red or coral based oranges for a more natural look.
How have nail shapes evolved? If you have watched any of the award shows of late, you will have noticed that the manicure of the moment is sculpted, a little pointy, and…not short! Everyone from Adele, Katy Perry and Nicole Richie were sporting long, pointy, almond shaped nails. They say that the new shapes- pointed, oval or a combination do for fingers what four inch stilettos do for your legs. They make them look longer and thinner!
What are your thoughts on the new lip and nail trends going into Spring 2014?
