Find Your Orange-Lipstick Soul Mate

Photographed by Erin Yamagata.
Take a look at the pouts of celebs, models, and cool girls right now, and you'll notice a unifying theme: orange lipstick. It's the color of the moment. Some might even say it's the new red — but we think it's a color that deserves its own category alongside red. Orange isn't a new version of anything. It stands alone, in all of its citrus glory.
When it comes to embracing this trend, though, we're a company divided. Some of us have already lined up a menagerie of orange lippies in anticipation of spring, while others are convinced they could never pull it off. However, here on the beauty team, we firmly believe that this is a universally flattering shade. It's just a matter of finding the best hue for one's skin tone.
So, we decided to walk the walk and prove that orange is for all. Using our lovely staff members as models, we had makeup artist Mari Shten match everyone with their orange-lipstick soul mate.
Click through to see what happened, and find the orange lip of your dreams.
