Summer Makeup: Orange Colour
I did a post about relatively subtle peachy coral makeup and since it got a lot of views, I’ve decided to do one about bright orange.
I am not exactly the biggest fan of bright orange (on myself); I prefer fuchsia, so I was surprised to see how many products I have. So I’ve decided to feature only four, like last time: for lips, eyes, cheeks and nails.
So here we go:
Inglot Nail Enamel 949
I absolutely adore this nail polish! I have several different Inglot shades and this one is the best, it brightens up even a dull outfit and lifts the mood. In fact, I wore it last week and got a lot of compliments. See it on the nails here.
Clarins Rouge Prodige Lipstick in 118 Clementine
I personally can wear this shade only in summer when I get some tan, as it’s not the best choice for my light cool toned skin but with some tan, it’s amazing. Keep the rest of the makeup minimum and add Clementine for a polished on-trend bright lip. I have used it on several girls and they all loved it. In fact, I was told by Clarins that this is one of their best-selling shades. I have just realized that I’ve never posted lip swatches of this one, will do soon.

YSL Crème de Blush in 4 Audacious Orange
The brand’s cream blushers have a seal of approval from make-up artists, beauty editors and makeup lovers, and it’s easy to see why. This cream-to-powder formula blends beautifully, doesn’t feel greasy or oily and has a nice staying power. What is not to like? This particular shade is like summer in a “jar”.

Inglot AMC 51 eye shadows
One of the reasons why I love Inglot is because you can get eye shadows (in terms of colour) that you most likely won’t use very often for a reasonable price. And it is exactly what I did – got myself yellows, oranges and reds, among other shades “just in case” I will ever need them. My other bright Inglot shadows.
