5 Juicy Tangerine-Hued Eyeshadows

5 Juicy Tangerine-Hued Eyeshadows

My favorite way to wear tangerines (or oranges in general) is to combine them with other bright sunset-ish shades–think magentas, coppers, fuchsias, and yellows/golds.

How do you wear shades like these?

Hey Christine, thanks for the orange advice… No, I do see these paired with copper!  Is the D&G shade similar to the MAC shade?  They look fairly close on my monitor and I like that both of these are a more ‘dirty’ orange.

Hey Christine!  Thanks for the advice and now I DO see these paired with copper.  Are the MAC and D&G shades very similar?  I like the swatch of the MAC, but it appears the D&G below may be a dupe?

This is one of the few colors I absolutely *cannot* wear, in any form. Perhaps to others, I may look fine in this color, but in my opinion, I look hideous. I know many stay clear of shadows with a red tone because they feel red makes them look ill, tired, etc, but that’s basically how I feel wearing anything orange.

xamyx Me too!!!  But I’m thinking I shouldn’t completely dismiss orange quite yet..  Maybe I could pull this off as a crease colour..not the MAC, but maybe the D&G.  But, when I see myself in orange, my head goes in the same direction and believes it makes me look seriously ill.  

I have literally no warmth in my skin tone, and my eyes are über-dark brown, with adark grey ring around the iris (adding to the coolness), and ATM, my hair is black. My skin is actually the color of pale sand at the beach; no warmth, no coolness, just…beige. I think maybe if I at least had a warmer hair color, I could pull off warmer shades. Maybe *next* summer, LOL. On the plus side, I can really pull off reds and red-based purples, which are probably my favorites (well, I like to think that I can, even if noone else does).

xamyx I also have a dark outer ring around my Iris..very dark grey and so grey shadows and I have always gotten along well, particularly charcoal.  I love red and red-based purples.  I do not think I can pull them off quite as well as you since my skin is neutral, but does have some yellow undertones.  I love these colours because I have hazel eyes and this type of colour seriously makes my eyes pop more so than any other shades. Other people with hazel eyes wear warmer colours to get that pop, but for me since mine are predominantly green, these do the trick big time. Of course with red being across from green on the colour wheel, this is not a surprise.  Right now I am obsessed with a reddish eye colour by Sleek called Maple.  It appears very red/brown in the pan, but applies as a red/burgandy on my eyes.  I do want to incorporate more red into my makeup in general.  Somebody said every woman should have a red blush.  I do not have one and I have never tried one.  Oh, and good description of your skintone.  I can perfectly see it in my mind’s eye.  

Hm I don’t think I have a shade like this in my personal stash… I do have a pretty orange powder eyeshadow but it’s slightly deeper and darker. I like to combine that one with a shimmery gold eyeshadow and warm brown shades.

I own one orangey shade in my whole stash, which is the one in Dior Aurora! I never go all out with it though. I like to use it on the outer half of my lids and blend the medium brown in my outer v so that it doesn’t look full-on orange!

Hey girly yes I do! If you (or anyone) is interested it’s one of the two looks I did with this palette here: http://mostlysunnybunny.wordpress.com/2012/04/21/with-dior-aurora-and-turquoise-eyeliner-you-will-be-ready-for-the-promenade-de-la-croisette-dior-croisette-summer-2012-swatch-review-fotds/I guess it’s a tamer version of sunset eyes!

Mostly Sunny Great look Sunny!  Super tip on the Rouge Bunny Rouge eyeshadow and that is a gorgeous colour!  I wanted to add that I was impressed by your swatches which are really well photographed and you can see the subtle differences clearly.  

Love the D&G shade but that name is as screwy as Korres. I have one color tattoo and still haven’t perfected the application.
