Hot Orange Eyes

7:25 PM

I've been sick lately so I'm not going to go into a full tutorial, but I just wanted to share a FOTD (from before I was sick) using my new NYX shadow in Hot Orange that I got from my recent haul.

I've always been very hesitant to try orange anything because of my yellow skintone, but I was pleasantly surprised with this color. It's a little out of my comfort zone to have bought but thank goodness for my love of trying new things! I absolutely love it. It looks more of a brighter neutral... like browns or coppers with a pop. Not to mention, the color is highly pigmented and has the perfect amount of gold pearl to it.

Since I had a strong shimmery eye, I went with a simple and clean-look for the rest of the face. Sunlight concealer from Everyday Minerals under eyes and on the tops of cheeks, pink blush, and nude gloss.

Ok, I'm off to bed early with my heating pad and "Nineteen Eighty-Four" by George Orwell.
