Makeup for Orange Dress - Maybelline India

The colour orange is associated with enthusiasm, creativity, sunshine, vibrancy, confidence and more. When it comes to selecting a dress colour for an upcoming event, the bright orange hue is one of the sought-after options. Besides the fact that it offers you endless options and a variety of shades to choose from, it also compliments most skin tones. But pairing the right makeup for colourful outfit shades like orange can be tough. However, you don’t have to worry as we’ve got you covered. You can choose from our list of ideas and create an ideal orange dress makeup that will stand out from the rest. 

First things first, remember, for any orange makeup look to stand out, you need base makeup to support it. The first step in your makeup for an orange dress should be to use a primer to create a smooth base that keeps your makeup in place all day. Next, you need a foundation to create an even complexion. Then, you can highlight certain parts of your face like your eye contours and the top of your cheekbones with concealer. We recommend that you use the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool to find the perfect foundation and concealer shade that matches your skin tone to look the best from the rest. Now that your base is in place, let’s get started with your orange dress makeup – 

1. The classic orange dress makeup look

Start your orange dress makeup by adding definition to your eyes using an eyebrow pencil. Next, you can create a smokey eye makeup look that will go perfectly well with your orange dress. Densify every lash and add volume to them by using waterproof mascara. Give your skin a flushed look by applying a rosy blush on the apples of your cheeks. Complete your look with beige lipstick, and style yourself pretty with accessories.
