It’s definitely spring time and I am starting to retire some of my winter clothes, scarves, and boots. I am excited about wearing a pop of color, and this spring my palette will consist of beautifully ostentatious oranges.
During New York Fashion Week Fall 2012, designers like Nanette Lepore, Monique Lhuillier, Tracy Reese, Anna Sui, and Michael Kors, all flirted with shades of bright orange on the runway with their collection, makeup, clothes, and even nails. Just last week, I was a guest makeup artist at the Sephora stores in Greenwich and Danbury, the store was hosting a high end limited collection called Tangerine Tango.
Bold tangerine lip colors will not be the only choice this spring, as there will be lots of yummy orange lip shades for you to choose from. You can select a sheer lip, a stain lip, or a strong bold lip color. If you’re not ready to add it to your lips then make sure to add this delicious color to your wardrobe or your nails.

This season, it’s all about the skin, glowing skin. All of the catwalk makeup looks had a clash of bold colors vs neutral nudes. I picked two makeup looks from the runway that I like. With so many great looks, from the red pout to the All-American peachy glow, let me know which makeup style works best for you.
Brown shadows are worked around the eye with curled, mascara-free lashes and cheekbones are highlighted with pinky taupe blusher. A dash of shimmer across the cupid’s bow and don’t forget the neat brows.
Suitable for all skin tones, this look gets you glowing with blushers, eye shadows and lipsticks in varying peachy hues for a sculpted, sun kissed look.
Pale green, pink and lilac shadows give an almost futuristic appeal. In some cases eyes, lips, and cheeks were accentuated.
Red lips are back in a big way. The shade to the model’s skin tone – a mix of reds and pinks is mixed directly onto lips.
Eyes took on a twist. Lids were lined with plenty of black kohl, tapered at the edges of the eye for a winged effect.
