Yearly Pantone declarations be damned; it’s time we create our own annual colour scheme. My vote for 2014 may be a bit biased. After spending an inordinate amount of time binge-watching Orange is the New Black, my sights are set on orange. After all, October is the month of pumpkin-based indulgence, so it’s quite fitting to bestow orange as the colour of the season.
It’s important to note that wearing orange does not have to be a fear-filled occasion. Use it as an accent to bring a bit of brightness to the dreary fall days.
NYC Nails in Tangerine Cream 112
If you’re terrified of commitment, take it one step at a time. This orange nail won’t overwhelm you with brightness, and the price tag can’t be beat either. Take it up a notch by incorporating a swipe of black for a sophisticated Halloween-inspired contrast.
Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick in Coral Sheen
Who says you can’t bend the rules? It’s easy to enter into Oompa-Loompa territory with orange beauty products. So take a side step towards coral. It combines pink and orange tones to create a flattering shade for a variety of skin types. The best thing about this blush: it’s crème texture. It glides on smooth and avoids the cakey look that some powder blushes provide.
The Body Shop Satsuma Body Butter
If you’d rather incorporate orange in other ways, look no further than this nourishing body butter. If you’ve ever strolled past The Body Shop, you’ll likely recognize the signature sweet scent. Now that the weather is taking a turn for the frosty, a good moisturizer is a must-have. This lotion is equipped with fair trade shea butter, so you can nourish your body and your conscience.
Lime Crime Unicorn Lipstick in My Beautiful Rocket
Take the leap into orange beauty with this bold lip colour. Lime Crime products are unapologetic, so these shades are not for the faint of heart. My Beautiful Rocket will take your lips out of this world with its strong pigment and moisturizing ingredients.
