Spring/Summer look#5 : Bronzed look with Orange lips and neutral brown eyes

Hi everyone!

Here’s another look for the summer with orange lips, this time with neutral frost brown eyeshadow and bronzed face.  In my previous look with orange lips, I’d paired it with golden/ brown eyes and peachy bronzed cheeks HERE.

Orange lips are not difficult to carry provided you choose a shade suitable for your complexion and pair it with neutral eye and cheek makeup.  I have chosen a burnt rusty orange shade as I find it more flattering for my skin tone than a neon orange.  This is more of an evening makeup look and goes best with neutral color clothing- white, black, beige and other nude shades.

Summary of the look-

On a well moisturized face, conceal required areas, apply foundation, set with powder and apply shimmery bronzer on apples of cheeks and blend out till hairline. With the remaining bronzer on the brush, lightly dust it all over the face for a ‘bronzed’ look. For the eyes, apply frosty medium-dark brown eyeshadow on the entire lid and blend out at crease with dark brown matte eye shadow. Apply kohl on lower lash line and brown liner on upper lash and finish off with mascara. Using lip brush apply the orange lipstick evenly on the lips.

Steps :

You can apply single eyeshadow all over lid or use 2 shades- one lighter and one darker (of same color and undertone). I have used 2 shades here- Sable and Twinks. Both are frosty brown shades with plum/red undertone but Twinks is a little darker than Sable.

1. Apply Sable on inner half of lid, Twinks on outer half.

2. Using blending brush , blend in the crease with matte dark brown eyeshadow.

3. Apply brow bone highlight shade under brow and in the inner corner near the tear duct. Blend the brow bone shade with the crease color.

4. Apply kohl on waterline, smudge on lower lash line with dark brown matte eyeshadow (Crease color).

5. Line upper lash line with brown pencil for a softer look. Finish off with a coat of mascara.
