I’m back with another look for Fall. I have a few more to get through, but also some reviews, swatches and other looks to put up, so stay tuned. I will probably post one other Fall look this week. Today, we’re focusing on orange. You may recall that orange was also a trend for spring, and I did a short series on that. This time around, orange is being paired with other warm tones like deep yellows and browns to update it for fall. Kind of like the colour of the leaves falling off the tree. The look shouldn’t necessarily be complicated 30 minute eye looks with 6 colours. This look is sheer, but brings a lot of focus to the face. Also, easy on the eyeliner with this kind of look. Use the eyeliner softly below the lower lashes or use liner to tighline (using eyeliner on the inside rim of the upper lashes) the eyes to make the lashes look fuller. Orange is a particularly great colour to highlight features on brown skin and those with brown or blue eyes. For the former, orange tends to be one of the tones that is reflected in our complexions to some degree, particularly medium-deep brown skin. For blue eyes, orange is the natural compliment. The two together creates harmony to the eyes. If you have blue eyes, you want to steer more towards the coppery tones for fall.
Per usual, check after the break for a picture collage of this look and a full list of products ).
