Tangerine toned eye makeup, bronzer, brush and lip color is certainly here to stay in 2012, but there are some precautions ladies looking to try the funky shade need to take beforehand. InStyle Magazine recently dished out some advice on finding the right shade of orange, as the color is not for all skin tones.
Makeup artist Melanie Inglessis told the publication that orange is one of the most difficult colors to wear, so it's important to rock it right.
Ladies with a dark complexion like Solange Knowles should look for a bold shade of tangerine with blue undertones. Girls with light hair and a fair complexion like actress Kristen Bell are better off using peach-toned orange lip gloss or lipstick, while girls with dark hair and light skin like actress Emmy Rossum should try to find a shade that is truly orange, rather than spicy tangerine.
After you find a stunning shade, you'll need to learn what cosmetics you should wear on the rest of your face. The key to wearing tangerine correctly is to keep the rest of your makeup minimal. If you have a ton of bright eyeshadow and bronzer on, you may look like you're reliving the 80s, rather than rocking a trend from 2012. To avoid this, apply neutral-toned eyeshadow, a touch of mascara and a hint of light pink blush. Glamour Magazine reports that Kristen Bell paired her orange lips with shimmery gold eyeshadow.
