Once winter gives way to spring, make up changes, too - or at least it should. What works in harsh winter is just too much for the days of sunny summer skies. That is especially true when it comes to you lips.
For a spring make-up look to be season-appropriate, you must find a good balance of colors. Although it is often considered very trendy, a candy red lip simply looks too harsh. However, don’t go bare and resort to lip gloss that will leave you feeling less than glamorous. As a beautiful, flattering alternative to red, the in-color for 2012 is the orchid lip.
An orchid lip - one by definition that is a purplelish-pink - adds color without being too striking or overpowering. Our favorite lip look for spring is created using our Fluhme Tiffany long lasting lipcolor, the perfect shade of orchid because it is sedate enough for the office but dramatic enough for a night out after work is done.
Beauty tip: all you need to do to transform a work look to a night look is add a slightly more dramatic eye.
