According to beauty experts, “orange is the new red” in the world of lipsticks. From bright “tangerine” orange to soft, natural, peachy shades, there is a hue to match every skin tone, but you must choose wisely. Orange isn’t an easy color to wear! Electric, vibrant shades that we have seen at Rag &Bone, Dennis Basso, Prabal Gurung and DNKY show will look great on healthy and tanned skin with just a bit of mascara. To achieve this look, among other lipsticks you can use Chanel Rouge Allure Intense Lip Color in Incandesente, Lancome Rouge in Love Lipstick in Madame Tulipe or Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Orange.
We have also seen orange lipstick at Creatures of the Wind show and NARS created a look for the runway. Lead artist James Boehmer said that the makeup was inspired by the artist Eugene von Bruenchenhein. He used NARS Timanfaya Satin Lip Pencil for the lips and white Iceland Duo eyeshadow for the eyes.
However, if your skin is pale, neon orange can be a disastrous choice. To find a shade that will match your delicate ivory skin tone you should browse through natural color palettes and choose a shade of soft peachy orange that suits you best. To recreate the look seen at Fendi spring/summer show, you can pick Estee Lauder Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in Fireball or Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti.
Red orange shades look great on dark skin and they also make a perfect evening makeup look unlike the bright tangerine orange. Among other products you can choose Rouge Dior in Trafalgar, Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Color in Maya or MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Sweet Grenadine.
The new generation of foundations is quite different from everything we have tried before. They are designed to cover all imperfections including wrinkles, creases and uneven skin tone. The idea was to create products that will look like second skin and appear flawless under the magnifying glass of high definition cameras.
Clinique’s Even Better foundation claims to be able to even the skin tone which is crucial for young and fresh look. Unevenly colored skin looks tired and most of the old foundations cannot do anything about it. The product contains Vitamins C and E, as well as white birch extract – the substances which are supposed to reduce unevenness of skin color over time.
Another foundation that claims to improve the look of the skin over time is Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup. It contains water granules along with vitamins and minerals. It has been proven that after using this foundation for a month skin looks softer, smoother and more hydrated. Bobbi Brown latest foundation called Luminous Moisturizing Treatment Foundation. As the manufacturers say themselves: “it doesn’t look like a foundation – it looks like skin”.
Chanel Lift Lumiere and Givenchy Photo Perfection are diffusing light and therefore hiding all the imperfections. They are using micro granules of silicone as the main light diffuser, but also Mica which reflects the light and evens skin tone too.
