Orange Aid

Well it's no surprise, after seeing all the bold juicy looks coming down the Spring runways, that Orange is the color of summer. It's everywhere from skirts and shoes, handbags and hats, necklaces and trench coats...ok you get the picture! This bright citrus-y shade, which always reminds me of one very bold coral-orange dress I paired with enormous pearls and proudly wore as a teenager to the fancy events in my life, also makes for some gorgeous punchy makeup colors. Think chic (and short) orange nails, shiny/matte lips, and warm sunshine blush. If you insist on trying orange eyeshadow (*Redheads: do not go anywhere near this trend), just like in those fashion magazine spreads where the models look like a tall frosty bottle of Orangina, then please do so in tiny light doses only, and then put on your sunglasses straight away. For the rest of your summer bright makeup needs, check out these gorgeous juicy shades from Sephora's latest:
