How to Transition Red Lipstick from Winter to Spring @linxtea

The look for red lips in winter has been a deep red, the trend being a darker, deeper and more of a purple hue. Now with spring right around the corner it is time to update your red lips to a color that transitions you to spring. One that works with the new season’s hottest colors in fashion.

The snow is melting and the flowers are pushing up from the ground to make themselves known! Trends in Spring 2014 are taking their inspiration from fresh floral oranges, bright and bold. One of my favorite cosmetic companies is Melt Cosmetics. Their orange Matte Lipstick in the color Bang Bang is the perfect example of this!

If your style is more classic and less bold, there are many beautiful spring oranges for you to choose from. Instead of going with the high pigment matte lip, you can choose a more subtle orange lip gloss for a light touch of color. If you tend to wear neutral colors, you can think of your orange as a pop that will accent to your overall look as seen in this pic from JCrew.



I like this Fior Mineral Cosmetics All Natural Vegan Gloss in Orange Crush.

  1. I absolutely love orange, but it looks like crap on me. However, I still carry orange accessories! I’ll tell my daughter to try an orange lip. She might be able to pull it off.

  2. i have a red scarf that i bought this winter to try and get out of the habit of buying neutral. its become my favorite must have piece!

  3. As much as I like the look of lipstick, I never have any luck with it. I always end up feeling like it dries my lips out. Someday, I’ll find a brand that I love and I’ll wear it every day. Someday… 🙂

  4. I love the bright bold oranges but I usually just wear more subtle colors everyday. I like that vegan gloss you featured. That would be something I’d wear all the time.

  5. I have tried a bold red color once and it just didn’t work with my complexion. I am trying to get bolder in my color choices but I usually play it safe and stick to soft tones.
