GET THE LOOK: How to Wear Orange Natural Lipstick

Posted in Content Beauty

We’re not ditching our classic nude and red natural lipsticks any time soon, but we’re certainly in favour of experimenting with new colours. Think about it: coupled with sunshine and a little tan, there’s no better time of the year for to rock a bright orange lipstick. The trick is finding the shade that works for your skin tone and colouring –  but when you do, it’s a make-up game changer.

Orange lipstick goes by various guises; peach, coral and tangerine are all shades that fit under the ‘orange’ umbrella. For those that aren’t sure where to start, we’ve put together a skin tone colour-matching guide of #ContentApproved orange lipsticks and gathered some expert tips from our resident organic make-up artists on their favourite natural make-up hues.

But remember, when choosing a colour the rules are ultimately up to you – if you feel great wearing it, that’s all the colour-matching you need!


If you’re unsure about making the leap to bright orange, coral tones are the perfect transitional hue. Leaning on the peachy side, it looks pretty on all skin tones, but we think it’s especially lovely on our fair skinned Content Beauties


Have fun – you will look great with any of the tangerine or universal hues! We suggest trying pretty much anything on the orange scale ranging from tangerine to true orange. Keep the rest of your make-up natural so the orange will really ‘pop’ against your complexion.


If you have a dark or warmer skin tone with peachy undertones, start here with our picks! Two corals with a hint or two of red, and don’t forget, the universal colours work for you too!


True orange is a playful and universally flattering colour.

  • Kjaer Weis Lip Gloss in Courage: Want colour without standing out too much? Try this tangerine hue that glides on. It’s a semi-sheer colour that is easy to wear with a chic shine.
  • Kjaer Weis Lip Tint in Sweetness: This orange-coral shade (with a hint of pink) brightens all complexions and flatters every skin tone. It’s highly buildable: you can keep it light in the daytime and build it up for a night-time look.
