How To Wear Fall's Hottest Lip Hue!

Halloween has come and gone and your sugar rush might be fading, but that doesn't mean you have to forsake all things orange. The easiest (and most on-trend) way to brighten up a gloomy autumn day happens to be a swipe of vivid orange lipstick. Not sure how to rock the bold and beautiful hue? We gathered 7 of the hottest citrus shades to try right now, then recruited the one and only Lipstick Queen, Poppy King, to serve up three must-read tips on how to master the on-fire trend.
First and foremost: Matte lips can be tricky if you've never tried the look before, so start out with sheer shades and glosses, and work your way up. Also key: Keep your eye makeup neutral so as not to look like a crazy clown lady. And the golden rule: Look for sheer tones with a little blue in them (they tend to be easier to wear than yellow-ish shades) that blend with your natural lip color. Now, you're all set. Click through, find the perfect hue for you, and then pucker up!
