Orange Appeal

I have no qualms about saying that orange is my least favorite color to wear. I looks dreadful on me. But if you flip through the latest fashion and beauty magazines, you will see that orange on the eyes or lips is the latest crazy. So naturally, I had to try it out despite my hesitation. And you know what? I’m not completely mad at it! Because of my complexion, I’ll never be able to pull off true orange, but creamy oranges and peaches are not totally bad. Here’s me *trying* to rock the Orange trend on my fierce face!

On the Coral Trend

So Orange is my least favorite color. And it’s all the rage right now. It just does not compliment my skin tone at ALL and always seems to remind me of cossing guards and construction workers. Not cute. But SINCE it’s all the trend… and rage…and everywhere, I’ve tried to open my mind a bit. And it seems, I like coral. There, I said it. I like coral, and it’s a shade of orange…which is odd for me to say It started when I got this cute little number from Ruche to wear on the Honeymoon.

Then I found my old Coralista box blush by Benefit. THEN I remembered this coral-y lipstick that my Mother had given me because it was too ‘pink’ for her. (My Mom looks GREAT in orange, on the other hand) Thus, a makeup look was born…and trendy at that. For this look I wanted the focus to be on my cheeks and lips so I made my skin flawless with my most full coverage foundation (Wet n’ Wild Cover-All) and kept my eyes neutral and matte with my new Flower Beauty eyeshadow quad in Smoke and Mirrors.
