While natural lip color is nice, 2012 is all set to be defined by a single lip color, and the shade in question is orange. If you're already shy about wearing bright shades like crimson and fuchsia, though, making orange a part of your lip color repertoire can be daunting. But have no fear. Whether you love barely there color or don't mind going big and bold, your signature lip look is in here.
Spring is here, and if you're feeling uninspired with your daily beauty routine, look to the runway for inspiration. The 11 styles featured here are so versatile, you'll be wearing them well into Summer and beyond.

Natural, pale lip colors graced the Spring 2012 runway. Burberry Prorsum, Theyskens' Theory, Marc Jacobs, and other designers made use of subtle lip shades for a muted look that didn't compete with the bold, bright colors of their Spring lines. From daytime casual to evening drama, these models pulled off understated lipstick without looking washed out.
Ralph Lauren's Fall 2012 collection was an ode to English fashion, full of menswear and vintage glamour. Pieces we found especially delightful included a fuchsia satin gown, a gold-painted ostrich feather cape, and plenty of double-breasted herringbone jackets. Check out the full collection here!
Calvin Klein designer Francisco Costa showed pieces that prove you can be sexy without showing off absolutely everything — the designer sent loose, hourglass-shaped frocks and pleated pants down the runway, sticking to a chic, sensible color palette of black and off-white, with a few pops of red thrown in. The perfect wardrobe for working women — or the girl who wants to invest in one piece to wear forever — Costa's Fall collection was decidedly modern, with a hint of mystery and subtle seduction.
