There is a point in life when every girl knows which tone of lipstick suit her and her mood best. Risking to sound very predictable, I normally stick to mauve pinks and burgundy reds. This new shade of terracotta orange completely took me by surprise. It is not too bright to create distraction or too muted to wash away any attempt of extenuating my features. It is worth to mention that this new trend comes with few restrictions some of which involve massive limitation when it comes to available shades. Here is my version of custom burned orange lipstick color and how you can mix and match your perfect shade.
Essentially the shade of orange terracotta is a combination of brown tone nude and bright fiery orange. Both if these colors are very likely to already live in your beauty stash so why not try mixed them up. I found a few drugstore lipstick with just the right shade of colors needed for this job. First I applied Maybelline matte in Nude Embrace which is basically a creamy tan nude shade. Next I layered all-time favorite bright orange – Rimmel In Love With Ginger. The combined color is more settle than ordinary orange lip but definitely far more noticeable than pale brown nude. How you mix the two tones together depends on personal deference and the exact shade of color you find most flattering. Mixing together two shades can be quite cumbersome but on another hand is a great way to utilize what you already have and try something new. Would I buy orange terracotta lipstick instead of mixing two colors? Probably I will, but until the right shade becomes available I’ll stick to what I already have.
