Makeup Monday: Orange Eyeshadow

by lauren atkinson


One awesome look that graced the Fall-Winter 2013 runways is a look that has translated into the season's makeup shelves. Let's discuss orange eyeshadow for a minute. The hue is not one I would normally attempt to play with, but I've seen some really great ways of using it: both bold and subdued, wearable and extreme. Below are some of my favorite ways I've seen the color used:

So where can you get the right shade of orange? Below are some eyeshadows ranging from subdued peaches to bold rusts and fluorescent oranges. Sometimes finding the right shade of orange is just a matter of taking a risk and trying something new!
