Look 2: Orange Monochrome
Now that I was nice and warmed up to clean colour, I let my look follow suit and selected orange as my second hue. Because the trend is not limited to eyes — and, in general, has no real rules — I attempted a monochrome look, using orange on both my eyes and cheeks.
I've always been a blush girl, experimenting with hot pinks, corals, and even shades of brown, so the idea of putting orange pigment on my cheeks wasn't too intimidating. It was all about the application. Using ColourPop's Pressed Powder Shadow ($5) in Bratty, I feathered the colour onto my cheeks with a fluffy brush. A light layer of coral cream blush on top helped tone down the intensity a bit. Then I applied the same shade to my eyelids (focusing on the outer half), and added a foiled pale yellow to the inner corners. I skipped mascara and let the colour speak for itself. The look felt surprisingly easy — almost normal, in fact — to wear out and about.
