CBB Guest Post: Orange FOTD by Beauty Infinitum

Hi everyone! This is Stephanie from Beauty Infinitum guest posting as part of the Canadian Beauty Bloggers. This month's theme is Orange, a colour I don't normally reach for in my makeup routine, but I wanted to challenge myself! I tried an orange eye look with coral-ish lips and cheeks, and I hope you like it. :)

I know that orange shades are supposed to work well with blue eyes, due to colour theory (orange complements blue as they are opposite each other on the colour wheel). There is a wonderful orange shade, Ignite, in the Smashbox Photo Op palette (part of the Glam Femme set, which I completely recommend as it's a great deal and each product is stellar), which I used on the lid with Esoteric Aesthetic's Hedgeriding loose shadow in the crease. I then added Wine from the same Smashbox palette to define the crease, and Vanilla (same palette) to highlight and in the inner corners. The look is a bit more brown-y than orange in this photo, but it does look more orange in real life. Adding the deep brown Wine helped balance it. I finished off with Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Whiskey and two coats of Lancôme Hypnôse mascara.

Here's a better look at the eyes:

For the cheeks, I turned to the infamous NARS Orgasm blush. It's not orange, but leans a bit coral on me, and it has gold shimmer.. so I suppose that's close! On the lips I used NARS Lip Gloss, also in Orgasm, which I find so incredibly lovely with the pronounced gold highlight!

Overall, I think this is a subtle, work/day-friendly way to incorporate orange tones in your look. I definitely want to venture outside my comfort zone a lot more now!
