Orange Lipstick: This Weekend’s Beauty MVP-------
No matter where you’re headed this holiday weekend, you can probably count on sticky, super-humid temps. Since foundation, mascara, and other melt-away makeup is out of the question, we’re leaving room in our toiletry bags for other TSA-friendly beauty gems and saving space by taking only one tube of lipstick: a bullet of bright orange. Paired with beachy waves and bare skin, a swipe of juicy tangerine is all you need to pull together your look (and complement a tan). In fact, the color works for both day and night, as proven by Taylor Swift (spotted on the streets of New York City) and Alexa Chung (glammed up for the Serpentine Gallery’s summer soiree in London). You can opt for a sheer, easy-to-wear formula, like Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Sheer Candy Glossy Balm in Tangy Mandarine, or try a more opaque finish with NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Timanfaya. You can even pair this bold hue with your bikini—though we suggest a long-wear version if you plan on splashing in the sea.
