Orange Is The New Everything – The Latest Beauty Trend

Orange makeup is a major colour at the moment but which shade best suits you?


This was the shade of summer 2016 and we just don’t want to let it go…so we’re not.

Fair – These tones look so dreamy on fair skin, blushers in the lights shades look powdery on other skin tones, but on fair skin it gives the most gorgeous warm glow.

Medium – You need a little more warmth in your peach, but the pinky tones give you medium skin tones an almost English rose like look. Wear this everywhere – from your lids to you lips.

Dark – A colour that has a slight shimmer is your go-to for the ultimate highlighting shade, acting like a luminous layer the skin. Apply to cheekbones, lips and lids, but not cheeks.

The Chic girls love these products.



Zesty orange? Whether it be bright or slightly more subtle the Chic girls are darting this colour everywhere.

Fair – Go easy with this one and follow Theirry Mugler’s lead with a shot of colour on the lids, or a dash of liner. It looks good on any skin tone.

Medium – From your lips to your nail tips, this colour works for medium skin tones wherever you wear it. Go easy on the cheeks, but wear it loud everywhere else.

Dark – This colour suits dark skin tones so well. Paint your lips in a bright wash or dust your cheeks in a bold hue. You’re slaying this colour girls.

We love these products.


Burnt Orange 

If this colour isn’t already in your makeup bag, then where have you been? Don’t fret – it’s not too late, this tone is set to stay all season.

Fair – Worn on the models at Blugirl, this shade was blended over the lids with a gorgeous glossy sheen.

Medium – Spotted at Topshop Unique show, where the models made us totally fall in love with this shade. Would you believe us if we say it was created by blending a red lipstick with a brown contouring stick? – true fact. All of us have those products in our makeup bag, without a doubt.

Dark – Deeper shades of this colour will work on all you girls with beautiful dark skin. Steer towards the stronger pigments that will warm your skin.




At first sight, this hottest colour does seem scary, but give it time and we’ll all be wearing this everywhere.

Fair – This is a tricky shade to handle but don’t let the stop you girls. Opt for shades with a slight shimmer to highlight your skin and go for oranges over red. Cheek colours will be too bold, but a lip, eye or nails will work perfectly.

Medium – Models at the Desigual ho proved to be wearing this shade above and below the lash line – were in love. Blending is essential to pull this look off, so take your time and make sure your base is flawless – we will be blending pro’s by the end of the season.

Dark – Work this copper tone over your lips for the most unreal metallic sheen, wear it on your cheeks for a blush, or over your lids for a gorgeous wash of warm colour.
