Orange Lip Looks Part 3 – Golden Girl
By now, savvy beauty ladies must have heard the WONDERFUL news. Tangerine Tango has been declared the color of 2012 by Pantone. “Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” Says Leatrice Eiseman of the Pantone Color Institute.
Don’t get me wrong. I’ve never been an orange-kind of gal. I’ve not even the most remote idea why I adore orange as a lip color, but I do. So i’ve decided to celebrate by launching another Orange Lip Look out into the world.
Today’s Orange Lip Look Is brought to you by some apparent reminiscence towards summer bronze babes in some magazine spreads i’ve seen as of late. I realize it’s dead cold here in his hemisphere – but who cares? The golden bronze of this look is ideal for holiday and new year’s parties as well!
As usual, I suggest finishing your eye makeup before you move onto your face. This is especially useful in looks like this one, where there’s bound to be fallout.
1. For the eyes I started with a nice clean lid. I applied a nudy-champagne to my outer corner, crease and inner corner. Paler girls might try a vanilla shade but the nude-champagne should work well for anyone darker. The goal is to give these areas highlight, as if the sun is hitting the high spots of your eye.
2. Then I applied a shimmering, bronze-gold to my entire middle and inner lid and blended it up, stopping just at the crease.
3. I finished it with a healthy coat of mascara.
That’s it! No liner, no dark shades.
1. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize! We are going for a sun-kissed look and the sun doesn’t kiss flaky skin!
2. Using your favorite light-to-medium coverage foundation, get rid of imperfections with a light application all over. If you have super oily skin, dust it off with a transluscent mattifying powder where you most need it. But don’t overdo it! We’re going for a dewy finish.
3. I used a golden (not bronze) bronzer as a highlight and overall cheek color.
4. Then I used a bronzer to give a slight contour to my cheeks.
5. Finally, I finished up with an apricot-peach blush
This OLL is a two-fer. I started going all out with my favorite orange lipstick, MAC’s Morange. However, I also know that some ladies are uncomfortable implementing such a bold color. Thus, I also shot this look using MAC Sheen Supreme Gotta Dash layered under MAC Sheen Supreme Korean Candy for a more approachable muted orange-peach. Take your pick!
The Finished Look:
I hope this look has warmed the cockles of your shivering winter hearts! Oh, and you can read all about Tangerine Tango here!
