We can all use a quick pick-me-up when mid-winter's shorter days and freezing temperatures have us feeling a little lethargic.

An instant mood-lifter? A swipe of warm, vibrant lipstick like the rorange shade that Chloë Grace Moretz wore to the 2018 Spotlight Initiative Awards Gala Dinner. Usually the red-orange hue is one we turn to for nights out on rooftop patios or summer weddings, which is what makes it a welcome alternative to the reds and deep plums that we usually reach for during the winter.

While we don't know the exact tube that Moretz used, we recommend Bite Beauty's Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Blood Orange ($24; sephora.com). Although it has a high-pigment, shine-free finish, the formula is enriched with orange peel wax so that it stays smooth and doesn't flake with wear.

Moretz kept the rest of her face bare save for a bit of blush so that the focus was all on her rorange lip. As for her hair, she pulled her blonde layers back into a sleek, center-parted bun, and left two face-framing tendrils out.
