Le Orange: Pinup Lipsticks Inspired By Jane Russell

I find myself constantly looking towards the past for ideas and inspiration on everything and this week was no exception. I have been obsessing over this stunning photo of Jane Russell and decided to write a little beauty post about her look.

The most intriguing thing to me about her face on this poster is her lips! They are Orange! I know most of you pinup mavens out there are partial to a red pout, but I am here to tell you that Orange is a surprisingly universally flattering tone. I felt intimidated by the colour and never thought I could pull it off, but after trying a couple of different shades, it really looks great!

So, without further ado, I’ve rounded up 10 of the best lipsticks I could find in varying degrees of Orange (there is one to fit EVERY budget !) Make Ms. Russell’s classic look your own 😉
