Fair skin tones:“A girl with fair skin can look like a jack o’ lantern if orange isn’t worn properly,” Maderich says. Aim for a cantaloupe hue, like Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Color in Lush Nectarine, $24. And when it comes to application, Maderich says, “Make sure you apply just a whisper of it. Smile into the mirror and put a puff of the orange high on the apple of the cheek.”
Medium skin tones: Try a tangerine orange color on your cheeks, like Nars Blush in Taj Majal, $28. Just make sure to apply the blush with a big fluffy brush so that you only get a wash of it, says Maderich.
Darker skin tones: Go for a bold orange like Make Up Forever Powder Blush in Tangerine, $19.
