Red lipstick will always be a classic but switching it up won’t hurt. A bright orange lip can take a simple makeup look and make it more youthful and vibrant. Plus, this color happens to suit a lot of Pinay skin tones.
You can go minimal and pair your orange lips with soft feathered brows and long wispy lashes, or go for a trendy monochromatic look with a peachy eyeshadow and blush. Either way, an orange lippie will guarantee a bold statement.
For some inspiration, here are six gorgeous celebs who nailed the orange lipstick look.
Angel Locsin looks incredibly striking in this bright orange lipstick that matches her dress to a T. We also love the subtlety of the rest of her makeup which allows her lips to be the center of attention.

Kate Bosworth rocks a softer, more subdued shade of orange on the lips, which she paired with peach eyeshadow on the crease and peach blush. Tip: Opt for a softer coral shade for a daytime look.

Zendaya was a stunner during the MET Gala early this year in her Dolce & Gabbana gown looking every bit ethereal. We can’t stop gushing over her curls and bright orange lippie that goes so well with her dress. We suggest keeping the rest of your makeup minimal when wearing a bright orange lipstick like Zendaya did here.

Bea Alonzo is looking chic and modern with the blunt bangs, but what really caught our attention is the pretty lip color she’s sporting. As her makeup artist said, “A pop of orange always makes things brighter.” We couldn’t agree more.
