Prep your skin using moisturiser and primer. I'm using Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer. Then it's time for foundation and although this is an 'orange' make-up tutorial, I urge you to avoid the tangerine look in this part. Instead use a foundation similar to your complexion, or just one shade darker. I use Clinique Stay Matte Foundation in 'Alabaster'. Whether you choose to apply with your fingers or brush is up to you. I'm using a foundation brush to apply it evenly before using the brush in downward strokes to blend it and pat for excess foundation.
Dust a white shade of eyeshadow, with a touch of shimmer, over your eyelids. I'm using 'martini' from the Sleek Snapshots i-Divine palette.
Then it's time for orange! Blend an orangey-copper shade into the crease of your eye. Draw a line on the crease with the shadow and fill in the space between the line and the eyelid. I'm using another shade from the Sleek Snapshots i-Divine palette named 'sunset'. Then I used a rounded brush to blend in the colour with the white shade used earlier.
Apply a soft line of brown eye pencil just above the lash line for definition. I'm using Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Liner Pencil in 'brown'.
Curl eyelashes for 15 seconds eye. Then apply apply a few coats of mascara. I'm using Benefit Bad Gal Lash in 'black'. Press the mascara wand onto bottom lashes lightly for a second to give them length too.
To achieve a coral glow on cheeks I used Benefit Cha Cha Tint. It's great for a flush of colour but make sure to rub it in straight after applying, as the tints tend to stain easily.
With Summer around the corner it's time to embrace colour and I know this is daunting so I hope this subtle step-by step tutorial to orange has helped. I can safely say that Orange is one of my favourite colours for Summer, it's just such a bright, vivacious colour!
