how I love thee!
I’ve been dying to post an eye look since I started this blog (a whole week and a half ago) but works been crazy and I havent gotten around to it until now.
I’ve decided that I want to do a little series based around my favorite color ORANGE and how I like to wear it on my eyes, cheeks, and lips!
Orange has been everywhere lately thanks to Pantone declaring Tangerine Tango color of the year for 2012. What better time to wear such a hot color than the hottest (literally its 100+ outside right now, I’m sweltering) time of the year! Oranges and coral are always so popular this time of year and they look great on tanned skin.
Urban Decay Primer Potion
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Orange (lid) & Dark Brown (outer corner)
Sugarpill Flamepoint e/s (orange- lid)
Inglot 329 matte e/s (dark brown- outer corner)
Inglot 404 pearl e/s (gold- inner corner)
Inglot 421 pearl e/s (dark bronze- outer corner)
I used a concealer slightly lighter than my skin tone as my under brow highlight
Ardell 120 Wispies
brown kohl eyeliner
black liquid eyeliner (over lashes)
I covered them with foundation first then applied
NYX Black Label l/s in Natural
and some random gold shimmery gloss for shine
Sleek blush in Muscovado, from the Sugar blush x3 trios (highlight)
Cover Girl Queen Collection Bronzer in Ebony Bronze (contour)
I kept the cheeks and lips nice and neutral to show off the eyes. I tried to keep the look wearable for most people although I tend to LOVE dramatic makeup. It looks much less intense without the big ol lashes I promise. As a final tip I would stay away from pairing orange with black unless you want to look like Halloween!
&& just for fun
dont try this at home…. or better yet outside of the home! lmao.
