Spring Beauty Trend: Orange Lipstick

Illamasqua Lipstick in Blaze
Eyeshadow Government caught up with beauty expert Leora Edut to discuss spring's happiest but trickiest makeup trend: orange lipstick.

So how do you hit the nail on the head?

Edut says, "If you're trying orange lips for the first time, go with a gloss instead of a lipstick.  This will give you more of a sexy, innocent look as opposed to a high fashion look."

She recommends Make Up Forever Lab Shine Diamond Collection Lip Gloss in D20 ($18) for a brighter take or D18 for a coppery, soft lip.

"For pay-attention-to-me orange lips, you can try Illamasqua Lipstick in Blaze ($22). The color is a mix of bright orange with a touch of fire engine red."

Another great, bold shade is YSL Rouge Pur Couture in #13 Le Orange ($30).  Should you discover the color is too wild for you, you can blot your lips with a tissue to take the shade down a notch.

If you follow these tips, soon you will be ripe enough to pick off a tree!
Edut's brilliant advice: Stop lipstick from bleeding by applying concealer around your lips AND dusting a light coat of powder on top.
