Ever since January when I blogged about Tangerine Tango being the HOTTEST colour for Spring 2012, I’ve had the warm, fiery hue on my mind. Specifically, how to incorporate the trend without looking like a complete and utter try-hard. (#loser)
After strategically placing a few key pieces into my wardrobe (American Eagle skinny capris, check! Joe Fresh tangerine scarf, check!) I decided to move on to makeup trends. Trouble is, settling on a
tangerine tango coral lipstick that suits my skin tone, hair and personal style is harder to find than Leanne Rimes in an ice cream shop (or anywhere food is served, for that matter).
So I turned to my good friend, the Internet, to uncover some inspiration. And boy, did I! Thank goodness Christine, the creative genius over at Temptalia, was well ahead of the curve (Summer 2010, to be precise) because she posted a round up of 23 of the Best Coral Lipsticks.
(Not sure why she settled on 23; my mild-OCD tendencies take offense to this arbitrary number.)
Anyhoo, chances are that you’ll find one of these shades über flattering:
