Vibrant Make Up Ideas If Your Favorite Color Is Orange

Spring is in the air — which means it's time to bid goodbye to the grey skies and winter jackets, and say hello to flowy outfits and colorful makeup. According to, spring is the ideal time to incorporate a pop of orange into your everyday makeup routine because it is warm, bright, and looks great on almost all skin tones. Though it may sound intimidating, there are many variations of orange that can work for you. As Huda Beauty reports, there has been a massive increase in orange-hued makeup since 2020. Shades range from romantic sunset hues, to gorgeous coral blushes that have become a staple on our favorite celebs and Instagram feeds. 


According to Pinterest's Global Beauty Report for 2018, orange blushes were gaining in popularity in Japan before the rest of the world caught on. Perhaps this is because the color orange is "always trending in Japan," as makeup artist Yuni told Allure. As of 2022, it seems the rest of the world is catching up and loving this bright, beautiful trend. In fact, InStyle projects that orange will be one of the hottest colors of the year. So, get ready to fill your makeup baskets with colors inspired by fruity peaches and understated rusts. And remember — orange doesn't have to be limited to summertime, because you can rock these bright colors while wearing stylish flannels and sweaters, too.

Orange makeup will be big for summer 2022

Spring and summer are some of the best times to experiment with orange makeup, but you can rock this bold hue practically year-round. If you're new to trying the shade, recommends trying an orange eyeliner to brighten your eyes. Choose a muted shade with coppery shimmer to make your eyes look bigger and less tired. Eyeshadows are a great, low-key way to experiment with color, and Huda Beauty suggests choosing a soft orange shadow all over your lids to brighten your look. You can add a gold shimmer to make your eyes pop further. For those who favor bolder makeup looks, a bright carrot color will ensure you stand out. Mixing bronze and copper is another great way to create a beautiful, eye-catching effect.


Fans of the monochromatic look will love the diversity this hue has to offer, because you can pair orange eyeshadow with your nails, per PopSugar. Megan Fox rocked the look earlier in 2022 by adding a subtle swipe of orange to her lids, proving that the trend can be both bold and subtle. Take your cues from Fox and try something a little less traditional, like orange blush instead of pink. If you go for this, Allure recommends a shimmery apricot shade for fair skin and an intense tangerine matte for deep skins. Something like orange lipstick may sound intimidating, but it will allow your pout to take center stage ... and it's definitely more fun than nude.
