Orange Obsession

L-R: MAC Brown Script, Nars Taj Mahal, Stila Valentina

I have been loving all things orange! It has a liveliness to it and brightens up your ensemble - be it makeup, fashion or accessories. Today I am going to talk about my favorite oranges(!) in my makeup.

Nars blush Taj Mahal: This is straight up orange; it is such a gorgeous shade! Don’t be scared by the vibrancy of it. Use it lightly and it gives a very pretty sheen [I used it for my wedding!]. Goes on pretty smooth as well. If I want my cheeks to be the focus, I’d just use this and keep the rest of my makeup pretty simple.

Stila color balm stick in Valentina: Orange statement lips are in vogue for quite some time. I finally found a shade that works for my skin tone. It is opaque, non-drying and goes on pretty smooth.

Essie Geranium: Is it red?! Is it orange?! Its such a fun pop of color for spring and summer!

Mac Brown Script: This is an orangey-brown shade. I typically use it in my crease to give it some definition. I’d also smudge it on my lower lash line for a smoked out effect or to open up my eyes (not literally).
