Orange on the Eyes

Orange has been everywhere the past several seasons, but if you’ve yet to give it a go, here’s why you should reconsider.

Orange hues make blue eyes pop, and they accentuate brown eyes, says Doud. Just keep in mind that orange eyeshadow makes a big statement, so don’t overdo the rest of your face. Instead stick with a creamy nude lipstick and a coral blush.

But before all that, you need to find the right hue for your skin tone. Check out these recommendations:

Fair skin tones: Doud suggests Make Up Forever Eyeshadow in Rust Orange, $19, since creamsicle hues look especially great on fair skin.

Medium skin tones: Look for an orange that features a pink hue, or an outright coral tone. The pros suggest Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow in Orange Coral Matte, $19.

Darker skin tones: To get an orange to stand out against to darker skin, you’ll need to wear a bright pop of color, like Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow in Tangerine, $19. According to Doud, “The key is to layer; start with a sheer application and add that bright pop of color onto the lid or into the crease and finish with a sweep of bronzer on your face for a sun-kissed glow.”
