For the Love of Orange

Orange Makeup

Here are great makeup tips for women of color, like me, who love orange...


One thing she says in the video is that women with darker skin may need brighter versions of orange lipstick than they think they will need. The one she used on the model was awfully bright, and I thought it might be too bright until I saw it on her.

I looked for some pics of me wearing orange makeup and I have to confess that on all the ones I found, I applied it with a lighter touch, and blended well, so it isn't as clear as hers is. But still, here they are. Gotta love the orange! :)




Orange Outfits

Here are some outfit ideas using orange and red-orange...


Ideal Capsule Wardrobe


I called it ideal because I love those colors so much! When's the last time you wore something orange?

(By the way, my birthday was this past weekend, and there will be pics. Stay tuned for next week's post!)

I am linking up today with Nina from Momma Go Round for Real Momma, Real Style, if she does it this week, to Jill from Glamamom for this week's Monday Mingle and to Not Dead, Yet Style for Visible Monday. On Wednesday, I will link up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday, Melaina at Transatlantic Blonde for What I Wore Wednesday and A Stylish Little Lady for Life Lately (if she has it this Wed.).

  1. I love orange in nature, in decorating, and on you! : > For me, I only like it as an accessory, like the fab ring and bracelet you're showing. You look wonderful in orange lipstick!

  2. I have not try orange and can't remember I have orange in my wardrobe. This is the kind of color that I like to experiment if it goes well with my skin tone. ^_^

  3. OK, orange is probably my favourite bold colour, and you look splendid in it. Naturally, the second I saw mention of orange, I had to drop by from Visible Monday!

    1. Oh good! I think everyone can wear some version of orange, but it's such a big color, you don't want to wear the wrong one. I know that's why people hesitate to wear it; it's why I did. But I say, go big or go home! :)

      Good on ya for trying it out more!
