Orange is my absolute favourite colour of all time so it only seemed fair to centre an entire blog post around it! People assume orange is quite a daring colour to wear makeup wise and often become quite intimidated by it. However it is so wearable if you choose the right tone and most importantly OWN IT! If you think you can rock it thats all that matters.

I too was intimidated by it at first but when you actually experiment with it you’ll fall in love. It suits all skin tones and is beautiful and fresh. You can wear an entire make look orange themed or you can mix an match an orange blush or lips with different colours on the face, its always stunning!

These are my top picks for an orange look with the exception of eyeshadow, but I always wear orange eyeshadow on my eyes in the crease and I would highly recommend the Ingot orange shade! Unfortunately mine is in an Inglot palette so it wasn’t included in the post. A major bonus with orange is that it is quite an annual shade which can be used in Spring as its bright and fresh, Summer because its warm, Autumn similar to the leaves and Winter due to Halloween and warmth again. Another reason I’m obsessed with it!
