Lipstick as Eyeshadow
It may seem bizarre, but wearing lipstick as eyeshadow really is a thing. And when the color is orange, it’s even more stunning. Take it from Tracee Ellis Ross, who wore Charlotte Tilbury’s Hot Lips lipstick in Tell Laura, an orangish red, over her entire lids at the 2018 Emmy Awards. This shade is perfect for darker skin tones.

We get that seeing a bright orange color in the tube is pretty scary, but hear us out. If you have a fair complexion and you’re ready to make a statement, try Illamasqua’s lipstick in Flare. Tatiana Maslany recently wore it to the 2018 Emmy Awards and we haven’t stopped staring.

If wearing bright or muted orange isn’t for you, opt for peach. You’ll still get an orange-tinged hue, but with a bit of pink to help neutralize the look. For this look, we turn to the master of peach makeup: Too Faced. Try the Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Palette for neutrals featuring peachy pinks, corals and bronzes.

To get this look, you’ll need to start with a lighter color and build up to darker tones. We love Nyx Professional Makeup’s Full Throttle Shadow Palette in Color Riot because there are many color combos to choose from and they all give the perfect sparkly-yet-muted orange shade. We love this look on olive skin tones.

When it comes to standing out for all the right reasons, orange is definitely the new black. If you want a grunge-inspired, fiery shade that works well on light and dark skin tones, try Nars Single Eyeshadow in Persia.

Forget everything you’ve heard about orange makeup. Yes, it’s totally wearable. No, you won’t look like a jack-o’-lantern. And yes, it looks good on all skin tones. Sure, you can go bright (and we encourage it!), but soft, muted, monochrome shades of peach, apricot, melon and creamsicle on your eyes, cheeks and lips are also winners. Besides, isn’t it high time to veer away from traditional fall tones and dare to be different?
Need a tip? To add depth to your eyeshadow, apply a deep brown shadow on the outer corners of your eyes and smudge lightly.
Ahead, five ways to mimic the orange makeup trend we’re expecting to see pop up in all the right places this season.
