Orange is the color of the leaves of the small orange-and-purple fruit, the zest of which, called “zest,” is used in many cooking and cosmetic recipes. The orange color is bright, cheerful, and visually appealing. Orange is the unusual color of autumn leaves, but you can use it to brighten the rest of your wardrobe as well. Orange is a color a lot of women shy away from. It is a very bold choice, but a rich bold choice. The color is very flattering on a lot of skin tones. It’s particularly flattering on Indian complexions, and on Asian complexions, especially those with reddish tones.
It’s also very versatile. It can look very summery or autumnal depending on the different tones of orange. And you can wear it in a really casual way or in a more dressy way. You can just wear it as a splash. Orange is risky, but so is black, and that risk brings a lot of benefits.
Even if you’re wearing all orange, it’s still quite a modern color, so you still have that fun, bright, fun aspect to it. But it also looks very autumnal, so it’s perfect for autumn. Orange is a color like yellow, but it also tends to look different. It is brighter and more saturated, and in some ways friendlier. Its warmth gives a feeling of comfort, and it often goes better with brown and pink than yellow. You can liven things up a bit by wearing orange with brown or gray. But orange can also be interesting with brown and pink or blue, and it’s especially enjoyable when it mixes with purple.
One of the most exciting things about makeup is the opportunity to experiment. A beauty experiment is a bit like cooking: there are no rules, only guidelines. You can mix things and see what happens.
If you do want to experiment with orange, be sure to use a natural tone or the same tone as your undertone. For example, if you wear skin tone 111, which is a classic neutral, then choose a shade of orange with yellow undertones, or 112 is neutral with pink undertones.
