Orange Lipstick + Gray Hair
Orange lipstick. Gray hair. I am totally getting my 1960's little old lady on. And I love it. It works. If you are letting your hair go naturally as I have, or even if you're not, the strong lip is your friend. And if the strong lip is your friend, the orange strong lip is your cool friend who wears sequinned platforms at ten o clock in the morning and still manages to look bed-heady and effortless. Forget what you have been told about avoiding oranges and golds with your silver locks and give this one a go. This is awesome. Go get some.
I went with the drugstore variety, just in case it was something I decided I didn't like. There was a limited range of options at the shop where I went. Not to say there weren't millions of nice coral shades. There were plenty. But the pinkness of the tone of a natural lip lends itself to turning any shade of orange lipstick slightly coral anyway, so I wanted to start with something really orange...like....biohazard orange.
I came close, and am happy with what I got, but I'm not quite as far into nuclear-retro-orange territory as I would like to be. My choices? A blend of the following (from back to front).
Sephora Lip Attitude (old) G03 Glamour
I have decided that I will continue my search for the perfect shade of fallout-shelter orange. I'll keep you posted.
