Orange eye makeup for the summer17:43
If someone would ask me what is my favorite color, it would probably be orange or all versions of it, especially peach :). Orange lipstick is huge for this spring/summer and why not switch it up and use it on the eyes. I admit, I love orange and use bronze orange shades all the time. This time I wanted to try the true orange eye shadow and I think the eyes came out quite summery and hypnotizing. You decide, if you like orange on the eyes or not.
I started by applying bright orange matte eye shadow all over the lid. Keeping it away from the crease. In the crease and on the outer V, I used warm light brown eye shadow to contour the eye.
I repeated the same on the lower lid, all over orange and brown on the outer part. I added a little winged liner, just to define the eyes a bit more.
In the inner part of the eye I put a shimmery beige shade, to make them a bit brighter. You know me, I like that part on any make up look :). Finished with mascara.
Simple as that. There's really nothing difficult about this eye make up, but I think it brings a certain sultriness and sexiness of a summer to the eyes.
Now as far as the rest of the face, I used foundation, a little powder on the T-zone and bronzer on the contours and a bit all over the face. I also added a nice shimmery bronze peach blusher and beige highlighter. As far as the lipstick goes, there's a lot of choices. Mine go from a very bold combo to a more nude and subtle.
I think I like the last version the best. What about you? Would you wear orange on the eyes?
