Spring Makeup 2016 – Sunset Orange Inspiration
Spring is finally here and I couldn’t be happier. I feel like I can come out of hibernation-mode and start enjoying the outdoors again. I’ve always loved warmer weather, but ever since I’ve become a mommy, I have a whole new appreciation for spring/summer. I think if you follow me on Instagram, it’s no secret to you. I love Autumn/Winter fashion and makeup. Faux fur, coats, vampy and dark lips, totally my jam ! But I love fresh minimal and effortless looks just as much. The moment it starts to feel like spring, my first choice of lip-color is always orange. Orange is such a springy/summery fun color. I like to wear very neutral pieces clothing-wise, all year round. For me, makeup is my main form of expression. I think the color of your lipstick can change up your whole look.
Allure Magazine shared a quick run-down to Spring 2016 Makeup trends which included the “Sunset Orange Shadow and Neutral Lips” trend by Rodarte founded by Kate and Laura Mulleavy. In my previous posts I’ve shared how much I love using burnt orange/sienna/sunset orange shadows as transition shadows for the eye makeup-look that I create. I came up with this very subtle look, which is not too soft but not too bold at the same time. It looks very fresh but effortlessly beautiful at the same time. I didn’t add any eyeliner, neither did I clump up the mascara. I kept it very minimal. You can totally switch up the orange lip color with any pink/MLBB lip-color. It’s so easy and quick, anybody can do it.
I think this is going to be my go-to spring 2016 makeup look. The eye and cheek palette (dancing till dusk) I used for this particular look is from SleekMakeUp, super affordable and totally amazing. Currently it’s half off on their website, so grab it if you want.
- Orange blush – Crease
- Matte Brown – Outer V
- Gold – Inner Corners + Lid
(3 shades in the bottom row) Plus I used the pink blush on the cheeks from this palette.
(Use a very light-hand with the eyeshadows, if you want to create a similar look. You don’t want a concentrated shadow, but light hues. Also, I didn’t put any shadows on the lower lash-line, that way it looks fresh and youthful.)
For the Brow Highlight I used “Virgin” from Original Urban Decay Naked Palette.
I used a Sephora Collection Long Lasting Kohl Pencil “07 Infinite beige” on the waterline.
My lipstick choice for this look is MAC Amplified lipstick “Morange” + I used Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat “Iconic Nude” to line my lips, any nude lip-liner would work. (I dabbed off some of the lipstick with a tissue to create a more sunset-ish/muted orange shade, also I kept orange more concentrated towards the center of the lips). The more affordable dupes for MAC Morange are, The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipstick in 105, or Nyx Matte Lipstick, Indie Flick.
I hope you like this makeup look just as much as I do.
