Runway Trend Alert: Orange Makeup

Down under at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week S/S 2012, beauty is all about orange. Keep reading to see how makeup guru Napoleon Perdis created a variety of yummy and wearable looks that are just in time for the summer!

#1: Eyes
Be it the pop of color on the inner crease at Carl Kapp or the color block at Shakuhachi, orange on the eyes is simply HOT! Remember to wear the look with an extra coat of mascara and understated lips.

Product used on models: Napoleon Perdis Graphic Loose Eye Dust in Copper Element and Color Disc in Orange Zest

#2: Cheeks
Applied on the cheeks, orange blush can instantly add warmth to any complexion. Pair with a matching lipgloss like the look at Talulah for a hip, monochromatic look.
