8 Daring Color Trends Everyone Can Pull Off
Is your makeup bag filled with brown eyeshadows and clear lip glosses? If so, it may be time to break out of your beige-colored comfort zone and try one of these hot new color trends. We'll show you how
For fair skin tones: Wear a see-through, coral orange that has more pink undertones, like cantelope, says Maderich. Try Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Color in Lush Nectarine, $24. "A girl with fair skin can look like a jack o' lantern if orange isn't worn properly," he 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."
For medium skin tones: Wear a pale sweep of a tangerine orange color. Maderich says to apply the blush with a big fluffy brush so that you only get a wash of it. Try Nars Blush in Taj Majal, $28.
For darker skin tones: Wear a bright orange like Make Up For Ever Powder Blush in Tangerine, $19.
Bonus: "Match your cheeks with a pale coral, peachy mouth," says Maderich. "You still want the mouth to coordinate with the cheeks but you don’t want it to be too matchy matchy, which will look tacky. But at the same time, you don’t want to go too nude, which will wash you out." For a night out, try wearing a touch of gold eyeshadow on the inner corners of your lids, then wear a taupey eyeshadow base on the lids with heavy mascara. "Gold looks beautiful with all shades of orange," he says.
