BEAUTY BAR: Orange Is The New Black

With this summer bringing in bold colors and crazy trends, we can’t help but become experimental. Let’s not forget the amazing Netflix series Orange is the New Black is also coming out of hibernation. On that day, I like many others plan on taking a day off from the summer heat by relaxing under a nice cool fan and binge watching every episode. Although, not much fashion or makeup is displayed in this hit series, it doesn’t mean they weren’t on to something with the title!

Incorporating color can sometimes be hard—almost as hard as it is to wear makeup during this summer heat. However, when I saw this Fashionista strutting through campus, I knew she would make for the perfect subject. A burst of orange can work wonders for anyone trying to incorporate a little color without worrying about whether or not they will melt under the sun. A bold lip color like this NYX buttercream in Hot Tamale packs a huge punch and makes a red lip a thing of the past.

This beauty-savvy gal pairs a loose flowy white top with light washed boyfriend jeans. And let’s not forget those bright shoes that scream summer! Although her outfit is simple she pairs it with an amazing statement necklace (notice how it takes no attention away from this rad lip color!) The simplicity of her outfit makes it easy for her to incorporate large amounts of color. Summer days call for putting on whatever makes you feel comfortable and fashionable in the sun. Adding a bright color lip can do wonders for a plain outfit. Just look at our Fashionista! She took the color orange and released it from its long term prison sentence.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To complete this look, swipe on your favorite bold lipstick, add bronzer to enhance your natural summer glow and if you have some extra time, a neutral eyeshadow and mascara does wonders! This will save any dull outfit and add a great dose of much needed color.
