As many of you are probably already aware, the Pantone color of the year is a lovely reddened-orange color called "Tangerine Tango". I have personally been obsessed with this color for about the last year and a half but I wanted to share my peachy-orange tutorial inspired by this shade with you. It is a very intense, saturated orange which may be off-putting for some, but I promise it is much easier to wear than it looks!
I subdued the eyes, created contoured peachy cheeks for that bronzed glow everyone loves for Spring, and some statement lips to add some drama. To see the whole video tutorial and breakdown of the look, read on!
False Lashes (I layered 2 criss-cross lashes)
MAC Blush in Ripe Peach (Limited edition. Similar MAC blushes.)
J. Crew watch strap bracelet (in orange)
Starfish Cuff from Hautelook (my invite)
I'm someone who loves to wear color but at the same time I want the look to be flattering so that it enhances my natural features. When I was growing up, my mom always told me to avoid orange and yellow because it would clash with my natural yellow undertones. It took a long time before I was brave enough to try it out anyway and fell in love!
My shading technique here is along the natural contour of my eye socket (not too winged) which works well for a natural, everyday look.
In the image below, you can see that although each peach/orange is a different shade, they all coordinate by being in the same color family. You can try this out with all pinks, purple/mauves, or bronzes as well!
I hope you guys enjoyed the tutorial and find the courage, as I did, to step outside your comfort zone to try a bright shade like Tangerine Tango this Spring and Summer, no matter what anyone has told you! It's vibrant and exudes the freshness of this season and is a great baby step into the wonders of colored makeup. :)
