I don’t usually go for oranges on a day to day basis, but when I do I like to ease my way into the bright color. First I like to use a moisturizing lip balm (I love Vermonts Original Bag Balm). My favorite way to apply lipstick is using my ring finger, it will be the most gentle and give you the lightest application. Using a brush can give you more control and you can build up the colour as little or as much as you please, a brush is also handy because you can make any lip corrections which is always a good idea before applying straight from the bullet. Applying from the lipstick will give you the highest pigmentation, something I’m not always so comfortable with! When using a coral colour I like to make sure I have a bronzed glow, Laguna bronzer by Nars is perfect! I place lightly where the sun would hit (usually the high spots of the face)
Hope these tips help, here is a little quote I’ll leave with.
“I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and… I believe in miracles.” -Audrey Hepburn
