Turn on the Switch in Iconic Red

Red lips can turn on the charm or the sirens, depending on how you wear the bold color. For a daytime red lip, keep the face clean and fresh-looking so as not to feel overly made-up. But at night you can amp things up with a little eye treatment for extra glamour. We’re not partial to matte or glossy.

Break Convention with a Matte Orange Lid

A pop of orange on an otherwise natural face is definitely unconventional, but it can give an expressive, modern punch to your look. We suggest using a smooth, matte texture and keeping your lips and cheeks neutral. Some of the best orange shadows come by way of MAC, Sugarpill, and Nars Cosmetics.
