Jun 28, 2012 >> Rock this look! G&F’s got your go-to guide for the perfect poppy lip

When we asked Make Up Artist Carol Wood to splash Carly with an electric tangerine lip color, she knew exactly which tube to reach for. And after debuting our Summer Fashion story yesterday, we’ve gotten countless e-mails asking what lipstick shade she was rocking.

Alright, we won’t hold back. Carol used Make Up Forever Rouge Artist Intense #40.┬áBut getting the perfect shade isn’t just in buying the product, it’s also application.

Carol’s tip to wear a hotter than hot color this season? She spills her secrets for G&F: “The trick is to pat it on with your finger. It is an intense orange so putting the color on full strength can be too much and look dated. Applying with a finger tip makes it soft and modern.”

And because we love you, here are some other tangerine lip hues that we think you’ll like. Oh, and we’ve included a nice broad spectrum of prices in case you just want to experiment a little at home before investing in serious stuff.

ONE >> Innoxa Summer Matte Lipstick in Tangerine, $14.95

TWO >> Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in Coral in Gold, $9

THREE >> YSL Rouge Pur Couture in #13: Le Orange, $32
