As much as everyone loves red lipstick, they say a change is as good as a holiday. And when it comes to our makeup regimes, we’re totally ready for the Summer holidays — so why not get into the spirit faster with orange or pink lipstick? As these celebrities show, there’s no end to the shades you can try, and there’s no skin tone that the punchy, popping colours won’t suit. We’ve rounded up some of the best orange and pink lipsticks you can buy, now flick through and see how your favourite stars wear them. Summer’s a-comin’!

The 2013 Kids' Choice Awards are on again today, but before the stars hit the orange carpet, we're taking a look back at some of the most memorable outfits from KCA past. Longtime attendee Cameron Diaz never disappoints in her California-cool denim looks, while Miley Cyrus has donned everything from a short, sparkly LBD to a long, flowing Dolce & Gabbana gown. Plus, there's a good chance you'll do a style double take with Jessica Alba, Mandy Moore, and Nina Dobrev. See which ensembles made the cut — take a walk down Kids' Choice Awards memory lane now.
Pairing a bright-coloured eyeliner and an equally electric lipstick is a major beauty faux pas, right? Well, if Mandy Moore is any indication, this look is something that is absolutely wearable. The actress-singer paired a turquoise liner with a peachy orange lipstick, and the colour combination is all about knowing what works for you. Mandy's chocolate-brown eyes pop against the shimmery blue-green liner, so the first thing you've got to do is match your eye colour with your makeup colour:
- Brown eyes: blue-green or purple.
- Blue eyes: orange or bronze.
- Hazel: purple or dark green.
- Green: blue or gold.
Next, choose a lipstick colour. Reach for one that is the opposite of your liner hue. Mandy's orange colour works in a few ways: it's an amped-up neutral that doesn't compete with her blue eyeliner, but it also complements the warm undertones of her skin. Stick with opposite colours (like red and green or gold and purple), and you'll nail this look time and time again.
Stars came out to celebrate the opening of Rag & Bone's new flagship store in LA on Friday night. Cameron Diaz posed with pal Reese Witherspoon on her way into the event, which also brought out Emma Roberts, Mandy Moore and Kate Mara. It was Reese's first official red carpet since giving birth to son Tennessee James Toth in September. Reese has been all about the brand lately, wearing her Harrow booties and stocking up at the new shop on Thursday afternoon. Cameron, meanwhile, has been spending time with friends and met up with Gwyneth Paltrow for dinner on Monday and a group of ladies for lunch this Tuesday. Also on hand to toast the retail spot were Rag & Bone designers David Neville and Marcus Wainwright, stylists Meritt Elliott and Emily Current, and Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka.
The celebrities of the fashion and beauty world had us yearning for summer this week as they taunted us with beautiful summer snaps via Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Whether they were partying it up with fellow fashion icons like Christine Centenera and Kate Bosworth in Sydney, stretched out on a speedboat like Bar Refaeli, striking a pose like Miranda Kerr (for Italian Vogue, if you don't mind) or getting proposed to in one of the coolest ways ever, we couldn't get enough of keeping up with these social media-savvy stars. That's just a fraction of what we saw, though — get clicking through the gallery to see everything else that went on this week!
Saturday's Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in LA was a family affair for stars including Rachel Zoe, Alessandra Ambrosio, Selma Blair, and Jerry O'Connell and Rebecca Romjin. The India-inspired event also drew Lauren Conrad and her boyfriend William Tell, who were spotted cosying up to each other in the VIP tent, Twilight star Ashley Greene, and Justin Long, among others. We spotted Justin horsing around with Jerry and Rebecca's twin daughters during the kid-friendly party, where fellow mums Rachel and Alessandra also did some bonding with their little ones.
The match was a close one, but polo star Nacho Figueras' team reigned supreme with a score of 10-9 after actress Ali Larter kicked things off by throwing out the first toss. Rachel presented the Ralph Lauren model with an oversized bottle of champagne during the awards ceremony, during which he was honoured as the day's MVP, with her son Skyler Berman and husband Rodger Berman by her side.
We've gotten so accustomed to seeing statement lips/eyes/brows/hair/everything at the many celebrity events each week that when stars step out looking natural — like they have done at the Third Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in Los Angeles yesterday — we actually get a little bit excited. It's so nice to see clear, glowing skin, natural lip colours and hair that looks carefree and easy to copy (very important, obviously). While each gorgeous celebrity had a key feature to make them stand out — Lauren Conrad's curls, Rachel Zoe's lip, Mandy Moore's alabaster skin — they all looked like they were happy to be in their own skin, using makeup only to accentuate the goods that they've all already got.
