Orange You Lovely?



I have been on such an orange kick lately, and as we say farewell to summer there is no reason these lovely orange shades can't transition nicely into fall. The special thing about orange tones is that they are as stunning as they are surprising. I particularly love the way it looks on brunettes or tan/warm skin tones because of the way it seems to warm the face up (especially blush). While the color is intimidating in the pan, orange blush creates such a unique look because of the way it highlights skin (especially on medium/dark skin tones like me). Above are a few of my favorite orange cosmetics, including Rock & Republic blushes in All-Nighter and Immoral, NARS blush in Taj Mahal, MAC Hello Kitty lipglass in Nice to be Nice and MAC lipstick in Vegas Volt. With a light hand and the right application, you can achieve an orange tone so perfect it would make an Oompa Loompa blush!

  4. This is such a cute post! I especially love Taj Mahal. Did you get it from a NARS counter or online? I really want it but I don't think I can get it from Sephora.
