For the last two years spring/summer catwalks have been splashed with a standout beauty trend: dark, reddish orange lips were spied at DKNY and YSL, while matte neon shades featured heavily at Rag + Bone.

Kahlana Barfield, beauty director for InStyle, shows us how to work the trend in the video above.
