What are some Good Orange Lipstick Shades? We Indians mostly have warm or warm-neutral undertones to our skin and that’s why inherently warm shade orange always look gorgeous on us. But, orange shades are often too bold for an individual’s liking so many of us shy away from orange lip shades. Bold orange lip colors are best suited for casual, semi-casual, festive or holiday looks. Other than bold oranges, there are rusty muted orange lip shades; even there are orange-based reds or coral shades to try. Rusty oranges make perfect day wear or office wear.
