A Touch Of Tangerine: Ten Mood-Enhancing Beauty Looks To Emulate This Week

10 Photos

We’re fast-forwarding to the height of summer: a moment where anything-goes-beauty rules the beach clubs and heady splashes of high-octane colour are on hand to lift any look. Adopt the summery sentiment right now by splurging on orange beauty products and dipping into the runway’s most wearable tangerine trends. Yes, that means lips, eyes and cheeks (note: not all at the same time), showcased with either a potent approach or something a little lighter.

Forget downplaying the look by day and ramping it up at night: key to dominating the orange beauty trend is concentrating on the shades and styles that work best for you and running with them, be it for a zoom meeting; a Friday spent poolside; or Saturday afternoon sundowners.

Pale complexions suit a subtle serving of the shade when worn as blusher or a matte bright on the lips (avoid high-shine formulas). Dark skin tones, on the other hand, meld perfectly with audacious splashes of Crayola-like colours, such as tiger, fire and marmalade, applied on the eyes or lips.

Essential buys include MAC’s Tangerine Tropica gloss, Chanel’s Le Vernis in Radiant Arancio and Nudestix Blush & Bronze in Sunset Strip. 

The key take home from the orange beauty trend? Brown, pink and gold blushers and bronzers are out while apricot, sandstone and honey are in. Apply a dab to the cheek and cheekbones for a healthy, natural glow.
