Hot Lipstick Colors for Spring

Boldly painted lips were all the rage across spring 2017 fashion week runways, and are the perfect way to add some polish to your look. From glamorously glossy to fluorescent finishes, these are the hottest lipstick colors for this spring.

Natural look

Poppy Pink
Pink is set to be one of the key colors for this spring, but, when it comes to your lipstick, pretty pastel pinks are out, and bold magentas are in. Poppy pink is one of the hottest shades out there, especially with a matte finish, but you need to ensure that your lips have been primed in advance if you want this look to be long-lasting, as matte finishes do tend to require a bit of extra upkeep.

Fluorescent Orange
Orange has been making a comeback for a while, but, just like with pink, the key orange lipstick shades for this year are bold and bright, never failing to make a statement. Opt for shades that are as pigmented as possible, with a glossy, shiny finish.

Dusty Rose
Muted, dusty hues of rose were seen all over the spring 2017 runways, and are the ideal shade for those who want something slightly darker than their natural color, but still relatively subtle. While this color can be incorporated into so many different beauty looks, wearing it with a matching eye shadow and blush will give you a chic and modern monochromatic look.

Nude, Beige and Brown
Nudes, beiges and browns have been popular lipstick colors for a few seasons now, and this shows no signs of changing. The great aspect to these neutral shades is that they are so versatile, and will work no matter your skin tone.

Bright and Vivid Editorial Colors
While green, blue or purple may not be lipstick shades that you are able to wear on an everyday basis, they are fresh, modern, and absolutely perfect for a special occasion when you really want to make a statement. As edgy and daring as these colors may be, you do need to pay special attention to the rest of your look, so as to keep it all high fashion and avant garde rather than over-the-top.

Glitter Lips
Glitter lips work with just about every shade, and are the perfect way to add a sultry sparkle to your look. There are two ways in which you can do this, with the first being to pat loose glitter onto your lips. Alternatively, you can opt for a glitter-infused lip gloss to apply over your lipstick, which is often the easiest and most convenient method.

Glamorously Glossy
Just like with glitter lips, ultra glossy lips can be created with every color. Whether you opt for a subtle nude or a deep wine, just make sure you apply plenty of reflecting gloss on top.

There is quite a variety when it comes to the hottest lipstick colors for this spring, giving you plenty of options for finding something that works with your personal style. Whether you opt for poppy pink with a coating of gloss and glitter, or an understated matte dusty rose, take advantage of these trends and allow your lips to really make a statement.

Easy Tricks to Waterproof Your Makeup This Summer

As gorgeous as your makeup may look at the beginning of the day, chances are, if you have spent time by the pool or at the beach, it won’t stay this way for long. OROGOLD has put together some easy tricks to help you to waterproof your makeup this summer, so that you can be sure that you will be coming out of the water as picture-perfect as you looked when you went in.

Use a Primer
Before applying your foundation, OROGOLD recommends using a primer. This will prevent your skin from looking shiny due to the heat, and will also ensure that your makeup stays on for much longer. If you are planning on wearing color around your eyes, make sure you use an eyelid primer as well.

Cream Instead of Powders
When you wear powder-based makeup, this always has the risk of your makeup smudging or running, so stick to cream-based formulas when it comes to your foundation, blush and eyeshadows. However, OROGOLD reminds you that not all cream-based makeup products are created equally, so look for formulas that contain a combination of cream and gel and are not too slippery. Those of you who find that your waterproof eyeliner never seems to stay put may want to try using a black colored cream eyeshadow as an eyeliner, as this may give you longer lasting results.

Lipstick Instead of Lip Gloss
Since lip gloss is wetter and stickier than lipstick, it can tend to run, which makes lipstick a better choice for the days that you require waterproof makeup. OROGOLD recommends using your finger to tap your lipstick onto your lips, infusing the color into your skin rather than just laying it on top, as this means that there is less chance of it washing off or fading.

Wax-Based Brow Pencil
Nobody wants smudged eyebrows, but that can easily happen when you use a colored brow pencil or powdered color. Instead, OROGOLD recommends using a wax-based brow pencil. If you don’t fill in your brows but just want to keep them in shape, a clear wax-based brow pencil will do the job perfectly.

Don’t Touch
When it comes down to it, what really smudges your makeup isn’t just water alone, but the combination of water plus pressure. It can be extremely tempting to give your face a quick wipe to clear it of any excess moisture or sweat, but this will only cause your makeup to run even more. Instead, carefully blot off any excess water, using oil absorbing sheets if your face tends to get oily, and this should keep your makeup looking pristine.

There are plenty of different waterproof makeup options available, although some of them will work much better than others. OROGOLD suggests doing a bit of research before investing in a new waterproof product, checking online reviews as well as trying the product out on yourself before purchasing. The right products, along with OROGOLD’s makeup tricks, will keep your makeup waterproof throughout the summer.

Wedding Beauty: Dos and Don’ts – OROGOLD Reviews

Wedding photographs are something that you will keep and treasure forever, so it is every bride’s aim to look as gorgeous as she possibly can on her big day. No matter what sort of beauty look you think you might go for, there are certain dos and don’ts that every bride should follow in order to truly look her best. OROGOLD reviews some of the most important wedding beauty do’s and don’ts.

DO: More than One Trial
Doing a test run of your wedding day makeup is absolutely crucial, but you should also be testing out different looks before you do your final trial. If you are using a professional make up artist, be honest with them about what you like and don’t like, and don’t let yourself be influenced by any ideas that you don’t like the sound of. As you are doing all of your makeup trials, be sure to take photographs of every look, preferably in the same sort of lighting that you expect to have on the big time. This will ensure that you know exactly how the makeup is going to photograph, and you will be able to adapt it depending on how the photos look.

DO: Bring Along Your Lipstick
Remember to keep your lipstick with you as much as possible throughout the day. It is unlikely that your first application will last the course of the day, so it is important to have your lip color on hand to touch it up, especially before any photographs are taken.

DO: Focus on Your Lashes
Defined eyelashes photograph extremely well, making your eyes look bigger without looking as though you are wearing heavy makeup. If you don’t want to use fake lashes, make sure you opt for a good quality waterproof mascara, as you don’t want it staining your face during any emotional moments!

DON’T: Wear Too Much Makeup
It can be tempting to want to try an elaborate style of makeup that really transforms your face, but your wedding day is not the day to do this. Although it may make you feel special at the time, you don’t want to look unrecognizable in your photographs. Focus on highlighting your best features with your makeup, keeping the rest of your face simple and looking natural.

DON’T: Make Any Drastic Changes
Whether it’s a spray tan, a new facial or a different hair color, make sure you do not drastically change your appearance a few weeks before the wedding. If you need a haircut, make sure you do this well in advance of your wedding day, giving yourself at least a month or two to get used to it, as you don’t want to be burdened by hair troubles on your big day. You also want to be certain that your hair and skin color goes well with your dress and accessories, and any last minute changes that may seem small at the time, could end up having a bigger impact than you expected.

Every bride should look her absolute best on her wedding day, using makeup only to enhance natural features rather than hide them. Choose waterproof versions of every product if possible, and don’t forget to try out your beauty looks well in advance of the big day, taking photographs in natural light to help you objectively judge the outcome of any new makeup styles.

Beauty Looks for Your Big Day – OROGOLD Reviews

Planning in advance is always essential when it comes to your makeup for your wedding day. The amount of information out there can be overwhelming, so begin by taking the time to gather inspiration, and testing out certain aspects of the looks that you love.

Prepare Your Skin
Preparing your skin can begin months in advance of your wedding, and if you are not someone who usually has regular facials, it is time to start doing so, whether you visit a salon or do them yourself at home. Schedule at least 3 monthly treatments before the big day, ensuring that your skin looks clear and luminescent.

A Rosy Glow
The color on your cheeks needs to be applied carefully, in order for it to perfectly offset the whiteness of the dress. Begin with a primer, ensuring that any makeup you apply will last throughout the whole course of the day, leaving you to focus on having a great time. Trying out different beauty products that will help you to achieve the best look is important. Make sure that you are wearing a white top when you are trialling your makeup, to give you a better idea of what it will look like in contrast to the white. If you plan on using a fake tan, make sure it is one that you have used successfully before, and know exactly how much to apply.

Keep it Simple
It is likely that most of your wedding photographs will be taken using natural lighting, which means that any heavy makeup might look overdone in your photos. It is best to keep it simple, avoiding heavy foundations and defining your eyes without the use of dense colors. A look that is always romantically feminine is to subtly line your lids, keep your cheeks rosy and flushed, and use a rich wine-colored lipstick, for a gorgeous berry look.

Kissable Lips
The lipstick that you choose to wear for your wedding ceremony is possibly one of the most vital makeup decisions that you will be making. Do not choose a lipstick that is too glossy, as this will be unlikely to last for too long. You should also not choose a lipstick that is too matte, as you do not want your lips drying out before the big kiss. Instead, choose a long-lasting moisturizing lipstick and apply several thin layers of it, blotting your lips in between each application, to make sure that it will be long-lasting and will wear off evenly.

It can be tempting to follow current trends when it comes to choosing your wedding day beauty look, but it is usually best to stay clear of these and opt for something more classic. Once you have chosen the specific look that you want, experiment with it over the course of a few weeks, adapting it so that it works best for your skin tone and facial features. As long as you make sure that your skin is healthy and your makeup is kept relatively simple, there is no doubt that you will look absolutely stunning on your big day.
