How To Wear: Orange

We show you how to carry this versatile colour, effortlessly

For as long as we can remember the colour orange has been tough to pull off, but new A/W 2015 beauty trends have us thinking otherwise. While the shade has (literally) been on everyone’s lips, it sneaked in to eye and cheek palettes too. From a pop coral shade to the deep rust, there are multiple ways to wear this shade, and more importantly to own it! 

1 Brighter shades of orange will flatter warm skin tones while someone with a cooler skin tone should go for a shade with blue undertones. 

2 Shades like salmon and apricot are perfect to highlight your cheekbones and give your face a beautiful tanned look. Use a creamy blush or a tint that makes it easier to blend the shade and gives a close-to-natural colour. 

3 Orange eye shadow looks stunning in any variant whether it’s with a traditional outfit or classic jeans and a t-shirt. Blend it across your eyelids with a hint of brown for a warm smokey effect or apply some opaque shadow across your lid and wear it with neutral lips. 

4 For a twist on the classic winged eyeliner, apply an orange eyeliner across your upper lash line and highlight the inner corners of your eyes with a white liner. To take the look from day to night, line your lower lash line with some kajal and extend it a little further from your lash line for a cat-eye look.

For something a little more subtle try an orange lip tint or wear a tinted lip balm for a more natural colour. Sweep some honey-toned bronzer on your cheeks and you’re set.
