It’s Spring 2017 and one thing’s for sure: Orange is the new…erm…peach. If you’ve been scrolling through your social media feeds lately feeling a bit of peachy keen déjà vu, you’re not alone. Whereas 2016 was all about the pink-tinted orange, 2017 is here to show up that trend with a bolder, brighter look of warmth. From lipstick and blush, to eye shadow and eyeliner, there’s no denying that celebrities and everyday gals alike are swooning over orange-hued makeup.

What started out strutting down the Fall 2017 runways back in February has quickly launched into embracing the blazing look months ahead of its expected arrival date. But hey, with a look this dazzling, the sooner, the better, right? If you’re like us, then there’s no doubt you want to get in on this makeup trend just in time for spring and summer. And lucky for you, we’ve got tips for rocking this color the right way.

How to Wear Orange Eye Shadow


Your eyes are already the focal point of your face, so just imagine what can happen when you bring even more attention to them with a little tangerine-tinted eye shadow. You can get the look in a number of ways. If you want to keep things relatively low key, simply apply orange shadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in Sunset Fire, to your lids for an allover wash of color. The trick to really rocking this particular look, though, is to not let the color veer anywhere above your crease—that might become a little too bright and bold, if you get what we’re saying.

If you’re feeling a bit more daring with your look, use the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Quads in What Happens In Vegas to create a one-of-a-kind smoky eye. With the four colors in the quad, you’ll be able to create depth and dimension for a mysterious look with an orange accent. Perfect for a night out, this is definitely a statement eye you’ll want to try.

How to Wear Orange Eyeliner


Whether you choose to change up the color of your signature cat eye or prefer to get fancy with a more graphic look, the addition of orange eyeliner can create a can’t-look-away statement eye that will become the focal point of your face. That being said, make sure that when using this highly-pigmented color that you clean up any small mistakes with a cotton swab and a drop or two of the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types. After all, you want attention drawn to your alluring beauty, not minimal makeup flaws!

How to Wear Orange Blush


Scoot over pink and tan blush—there’s a new color in town! To achieve that perfect peachy glow that you thought was only possible from hours in the sun during summer, simply swipe some of the second color in the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Blush palette to your cheekbones. Voila! Instant warmth and gorgeous, natural-looking color!

How to Wear Orange Lipstick


Pucker up, buttercup! Instead of reaching for your go-to pinks, reds, and nudes to amp up your pout, have a little fun with orange. Whether it’s a cream, matte, or metallic finish, you’re sure to find your newest obsession. Orange lipstick ranks among our favorites because, not only is it on trend this season, but it can instantly brighten up the look of any complexion regardless of skin tone. What’s more, with a bunch of different variations available, you can tailor your orange look to your exact preferences.

Not ready to set your favorite red aside? Try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lip in Orange Envy to get equal parts orange and red for a pout that’s warm and inviting. Feeling a bit bolder? Fill your lips with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Le Rouge in Always Apricot for an instant color rush.

Now that you know how to rock the season’s hottest look, just remember that while orange is totally in, you want to keep it confined to one area of your face. For example, if you choose to go with a vibrant statement eye, keep the rest of your look neutral. Most of all, have fun with it!
