Orange Crush Makeup Look

Instead of the usual pinks and reds this Valentine’s Day, try some orange for a change! Orange is in the same warm color family as reds, but it appears much more fresh, fun, and unique — especially when it comes to eye shadow! This makeup look has a vibrant tangerine orange on the lid that really pops without being overwhelming. The eye makeup actually looks neutral when your eyes are open. This flash of orange only appears when you wink at your crush. ;)


EYES
– Laura Mercier Eye Basics in “Wheat” (prime entire lid)
– Make Up For Ever E/S in “35″ — Buff; barely there pink (highlight)
– MAC E/S in “Tete-A-Tint” (midtone — the area between the highlight and the crease) — unfortunately this gorgeous caramel brown Matte2 color has been discontinued (but you can still find some for sale online); MAC “Samoa Silk” E/S is a bit more orange but similar in color
– Make Up For Ever E/S in “18″ — Tangerine; vibrant matte orange (entire lower lid; blend just above crease)
– Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Liner in “Demolition” (upper lash line)
– Make Up For Ever Aqua Smoky Lash Waterproof Extra Black Mascara (two coats on top and one coat on bottom lashes)

CHEEKS
– Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base (contour)
– Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in “Tipsy” (on apples)

LIPS
– MAC Lip Pencil in “Spice” (along lip line, then fill in entire lip area)
– MAC L/S in “Mocha”

I am going to take you up on this suggestion and do orange for Valentine’s Day. The look you came up with is very wearable and unique at the same time. I like this a lot :-)

Okay I need that MUFE shadow. I love orange as a makeup too much to pass up this look!

Hi Katrina,

Thanks! I’ve been wearing this makeup lately, and there are still a few more weeks until Valentine’s Day haha :) Let me know how it turns out!

Hi Eden-Avalon,

This MUFE 18 does not disappoint! It’s my favorite bright orange by far. :)
