Spring Runway Trends: Warming Up With Orange

A hot trend from the Spring 2016 runway that is user friendly in the now, orange works like magic warming up pale winter faces with a blast of color! Shades of the sunset transform darker skins as well, giving a pumped up glow that looks modern and fresh on everyone.

Spring Runway Trends - EYES

Start by shading the entire lid with a #22 Large Eyeshadow Brush and bright orange shadow; try the Sun Moon Stars Original Trio Eyeshadow in Ultra Suede. Extend the color to the outer corner of the eye. Next use a #33 Flat Eyeshadow Brush to blend the same orange color along your lower lash line, moving from the inner to outer corners.

Now highlight just under the brow using the same brush and the shimmering vanilla shade in the Terrachino Baby Dome Baked Eyeshadow Trio. An expertly coordinated palette of multi-finish textures features a versatile wet/dry formula. Effortless color combos easily transition from neutral to dramatic!

Using the Pro-Waterproof Pencil in Ivory within the waterline to help create a larger, open-eyed effect. Highly pigmented and extremely longwearing, this pencil is perfect for use on the inner rim. Add two coats of Lush Length Mascara to the top and bottom lashes for voluminous length. VL’s newest mascara amps up each lash with a lightweight, innovative formula that remains soft throughout the day.

Spring Runway Trends - FACE

After applying your favorite foundation to even out skin, apply a flush of orange to the cheek using the Chiara Flush Stick in Ardensa. A creamy, easy to blend hybrid stick of matte and pearl, the outer core contains richly pigmented lush color in a bright coral hue, while the center is a complementary, soft shimmering apricot highlighter.

Give yourself a subtle golden glow with La Bella Luce Highlighter in Patina. Pat on to the temple and on to the highest point of your cheekbones with a Water Canvas Sponge. This will get a little more pigment onto the surface of your skin.

For a pinch of dewy color, pop a dab of Rosewood Dawn Hydrostick over the same spot. Water technology in this gel formula leaves skin feeling refreshed and cool! Feels silky upon application and sets quickly to give skin a warm bronzy glow.

Spring Runway Trends - LIPS

Build a similar flush on the lips (staying within our ‘shades of the sunset’ theme) by applying Lip and Cheek Stain in Liquid Kiss. This dual-purpose stain is extremely long lasting and layers directly over moisturized lips and cheeks to deliver a beautiful wash of sheer color. Use the doe-foot applicator to paint lips, carefully following upper and lower lip lines. Allow to dry, and continue to apply for deeper pigmentation until reaching desired result.
