tangerine is the “it” colour of this season! i know that tangerine seems like a difficult colour to pull off, but trust me, any colour could look good on anyone; it’s all about finding the right shade and about pairing it with the right makeup and outfit. here are some tips on wearing tangerine makeup:
- use only one item of makeup that is tangerine. if you use a sweep of tangerine eyeshadow on the eyes, then keep your lips neutral and use bronzer or a soft blush on the cheeks. if you use tangerine on the lips, keep eyes neutral by using taupes/browns. if you use tangerine on the cheeks, opt for a gloss on the lips rather than a lipstick.
- choose a shade of tangerine that suits you. if you are fair-skinned, choose a more coral tone. if you have olive skin, you can choose a more orange (warm) tone. if you have darker skin, choose a cooler tone of tangerine. here are some suggestions:
lip stick for fair-skin: shu uemura rouge unlimited in cr310 light peach oral
blush for fair-skin: sunlight peach creamy dome blush
lipstick for olive (tan) skin: cr330 medium grapefruit
blush for olive (tan) skin: p vivid orange glow on
for darker skin: rouge unlimited or520
blush for darker skin: m medium peach 560 (i love this one!)
