Bold, warm colors have been all the rage this season and we’re absolutely obsessed! Citrus inspired shades like electric orange and burnt umber are quite literally the new neutrals. We‘ve seen them all over the runways, like at Salvatore Ferragamo’s 2017 Spring Show in their most editorial form…they’re still majorly on trend and we’re going to show you how to use them to best suit you on the regular!
Let’s start with some eyes, shall we?? The perfect product to create these trendy looks is Urban Decay’s Naked Heat Palette. And can we just say…these tones are flattering on all skin tones and ALL hair colors! For some daytime realness, start with “Lumbre” all over your eyelids and blend it out into your crease. Depending on how dark you want to go, you can add a little “Sauced” or “Low Blow” to your crease to give it a bit more of a diffused and dramatic look. Top it off with a little “Ounce” under your brows for a soft highlight. Now if you’re going for nighttime glam, just move right on down your palette! “Scorched” and “Dirty Talk” make for stunning shadow colors on the eyelids and we love them blended out with a little bit of “He Devil”. This combo makes for a totally unique and totally sexy smokey eye! Don’t be afraid to play with these…that’s what they’re there for! Urban Decay provides a super handy double-sided blending brush with this palette; it’s fab and we definitely encourage you to put it to work!
So, shall we pucker up and talk lips? We know what you’re thinking…orange lipstick sounds like something that grandma would wear on the beach in Miami. But trust us…it’s so hot right now! Max Mara featured a range of coral lips in their Spring 2018 show. You just have to seek out the right shade for you. We find that the bolder the color, the more universally flattering, especially if the rest of you makeup is more on the minimal side. Try the NARS lipstick in Heat Wave. It’s a beautiful bright orange-red. We love this color…it’s so luxurious! If going totally orange is intimidating, this is a fab happy medium because it titters more on the red side. However, if you’re ready to take on this sizzling summer trend lips first, then go for the NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Timanfaya. It’s a bold, electric orange and you’re absolutely going to love the texture! It’s matte, but ultra soft and comfortable at the same time. Just like we saw on the runway, we say to pair either of these shades with simple eyes and a little mascara…let your lipstick do the talking!
We can’t wait for you to try these sizzling hot summer trends. We know that you’re going to love them as much as we do!
