As evidenced by the runway and red carpet, peach, coral and orange are the ‘it’ colors for spring. Whether it’s on your lids, cheeks, lips, or nails, orange adds warmth and shimmer to brown skin. We’re in love with the orange and tangerine hues and their versatility. The trend can be loud enough to make a statement, or subtle and wearable. To ensure that you ‘spring into orange’, we have listed a few of our favorite products for the season.


Splash a little NYX in Hot Orange between your lashes and your crease for a vibrant off the runway eye. This bright tangerine shadow is just the right color to turn heads this spring.


Orange cheeks can create a very bronzed and warm look on darker skin tones. For subtlety, we recommend Orgasm blush by Nars. It looks bright in the packaging, but when brushed over cheeks, it adds undeniable radiance to any skin tone.


There are so many ways to wear orange on your lips. You can go from neon bright to a light neutral coral. For a bright glossy orange lip we love mixing Make Up Forever’s Artist Intense Rouge Lipstick in #40 with Make Up Forever’s Lab Shine Diamond Lip Gloss in D20. For a more neutral and everyday lip try MAC Amplified crème lipstick in Morange.


A pop of bright tangerine on your nails screams spring. Try Essie nail lacquer in Tart Deco for beautifully bright orange nails.

  • I definitely look forward to trying Orgasm blush this Spring. A lot of people have recommended that shade of blush and I’m in need of a new color!

  • I broke out the coral lips and tangerine nails already…even though it’s 35 degrees here still! I usually don’t wear blush, but I’m tempted to try Nars’ Taj Mahal b/c it’s a little more orangey than the pinkish Orgasm.
