The orange eyeshadow look started to become really trendy at the fall 2018 shows. It spilled over into 2019, with orange eyeliner added into the mix to punch up the bold look to a full orange eye experience. We saw the fun ‘60s inspired trend on the runways of Byblos, and Zero + Maria Cornejo, and now we’re seeing it on red carpets on some of our favorite starlets. For melanin rich skin it’s such a complementary hue, popping against the skin tone no matter how fair or deep.
With so many palettes and other beauty treasures to choose from to achieve a lewk, you can play with the trend to find what works best for you. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite items to get you started on your discovery of the summery hue. When it comes to makeup, orange really is the new black.
