Obsession Du Jour: Orange you glad... 8.3.10

Recently I have been overwhelmed by the amount of orange/ copper makeup I have seen in editorials, magazines and stores.

We all know the Orange lip was huge for summer but here is something semi new. Orange toned eye shadows. I for one love it...being a blue eyed chick, it is great for me. Orange tones are very flattering against blue eyes due to the whole color theory thing-a-mabob that I am sure you all have heard tons and tons about.

Anyway, some of my favorite eyeshadow are copper colors. While, personally I would never wear a navel Clementine orange but I will however start wearing more copper colors once the fall weather starts to creep in.


See below the models and celebrities alike that are indulging in the trend.






Will you join?

  2. Copper is my go to colour when I want my eyes to "pop".. although they're not blue (but green) it is such a gorgeous colour to brighten up light eyes I think! Orange looks amazing on these gals!!!!

  3. Since I have blue eyes, I will probably try this out. Not sure if I would go for such bold colors, but I could see myself rocking similar to the Ashly Olsen or something darker with orange/copper tones. If I wore the bold colors here they would think I am a Harajuku girl! :)

  7. I love copper colors -- they compliment blue eyes beautifully but I wouldn't wear neon orange. With the exception of copper colors, I'll pass this trend up!

  11. Wow - Scarlet looks hot with the Orange trend. I don't think it's a "DO" for me. I tend to get dry lines around the eye area. A color like orange or pink per se and it just looks bad!

  12. I've been on the orange bad wagon for a little while now - the most fabulous I have is maybe Coppering by Mac or a fab Shu Uemura one called ME Orange 250. For a more subtle look I love Benefit cream shadow in Prenup - all fab for blue/green eyes! I've been obsessed with orangey eye shadow since my makeup artist friend did my makeup a year ago and showed me how amazing the colour is for making your eye colour stand out. Love it!x

  15. I love the way Scar Jo wears this trend and it reminds me of an Estee Lauder eyeshadow in a warm coral/pink shade I owned a few years ago...
    maybe time to look into a few brighter shades!

  17. For me (brown eyes), copper yes, orange I'll pass...I think it's too bold and I'm not sure I can pull it off.
    Nice post.
