As it turns out, orange isn’t only the new black; it’s also the new red — as we see here on Pretty Little Liars starlet, Shay Mitchell, in New York City earlier this month. We’ve seen a lot of comfy-progressive fashion trends popping up this spring that we’re ecstatic about, such as slip-on-sneakers and kitten heels taking the place of ever-present strappy sandals and stilettos. But just because things have taken a more casual turn in the wardrobe department doesn’t mean that you have to shy away from your bold beauty tendencies.
The electric orange lips that dominated the spring runways inspired a welcomed break in the classic nude, pink, and red lips that we typically see on the red carpet. Shay’s coral-orange shade is the perfect way to ease into the trend, because the hue still carries some pink pigment. To create a similar look, we recommend using Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Lipstick in Vibrant Mandarin. Take another beauty cue from Shay and go easy on your eyes and cheeks — an otherwise low-key aesthetic will help you pull off this daunting beauty trend without looking like you’re trying too hard. We’ll show you how to apply such a bold lipstick color in this step-by-step video!
