Ok, well they’re not that bright. I don’t know why, but orange eyeshadow totally intrigues me! I’m so fascinated with it, and I am determined to make every color eyeshadow work somehow. Can’t say the same for lip colors unfortunately – bright pinks, severly dark, or bright opaque colors on my lips just looks wrong, and I can’t get over it enough to wear it out. Eyeshadow, on the other hand, usually has me blending anywhere from 4-10 colors together, so I can make any color work (they all play nice together). I really wanted to use some flame-like colors with this look, as well as incorporate my new NARS goodies (Mekong = pure love btw!). You’ll be seeing some more orange-inspired looks soon too. Thoughts?
For this look I used:
- Eyes: UDPP (primer), Yaby Pearl Paints oranges (base), Smashbox Flamingo (inner lid), Smashbox Torch (middle lid), NARS Galapagos (outer lid), NARS Mekong (crease), Smashbox Oyster (highlight), Bobbi Brown Espresso Ink (liner), Plushlash mascara
- Cheeks: Springsheen blush
- Lips: Smashbox Candid lipgloss
See more pictures!!
Somehow I forgot to crop this picture. Well, now you know what they look like before I cut them up :-)

I completely agree with you, oranges intrigues me as well and I just have to have them in my collection. Strange, huh? Anyway, you’re doing it great as always! I love the look, and I’d love to recreate it… Gorgeous!
