There's a reason stars hit this year's red carpets with orange pouts: The color looks fresher than oxblood, is edgier than pink, and makes a statement with very little effort. Versions of the juicy hue can flatter every skin tone and liven up dull undertones. Hint: darker complexions get a bigger boost from opaque, matte lipstick varieties as opposed to sheer lip glosses.
Clothes Coordinates: Wear it with....red, pale peach, and green.
All About Orange
This neutral is lighter than khaki, is a bump up from beige, and pairs well with a warmer makeup palette (think cheek and eye products in bronze and rust tones.) A touch of shimmer will make it pop even more.
Clothes Coordinates: Wear it with...navy, khaki, and gold.
All That Brightens
This sweet, slightly pastel green may seem like a wild-card choice, but it looks unexpectedly chic as a sheer haze around eyes. If your eyes are green or hazel, try a slightly deeper tone on lids. A light, metallic formula over a matte one may also feel less intimidating to pull off. Shoot for J. Lo's trifecta: green shadow, a sweep of peach blush, and a nude lipstick or gloss with a hint of orange in it. (Orange sits opposite green on the color wheel, meaning the two hues are complimentary. )
Clothes Coordinates: Wear it with cream, black and bright red.
Pantone named this love child of pink and purple the most on-trend shade of the year. My superlative for the deep, but vibrant hue: most versatile. Illustrious, yet not harsh, versions of orchid can easily make an impact on both eyes and lips. Want a tamer dose? Stick with sheer formulas.
Clothes Coordinates: Wear it with...gray, pewter and deep green.
