Tangerine Tango Look


Did I mention that the Pantone colour for this year is called Tangerine Tango? Well I pulled out all my orange colours, started to play around with them and this is what I came up with. 
Face:
Revlon Beyond Natural smoothing primer
Sacha cream to powder foundation in Perfect Caramel. Applied with foundation brush from Coastal scents 22 piece brush set
Coastal Scents concealer palette
L’Oreal Translucide loose powder in medium

Eyes:
Ambrosia Cosmetics Amplified by Arlene Villarule as eye primer. Apply lightly with fingers all over eyelid up to brow bone.
Ambrosia creative colour Serene Sunset (matte vivid orange). Applied over lid area and slight up into the crease.
Ambrosia creative colour Havana Cream (soft matte caramel brown). Used to blend out harsh edge of Serene sunset.
Ambrosia cosmetics lust dust Pulse (sparkly rich orange) Applied near tear duct area
Halener Rustique loose eye shadow in Antiqued (sparkly brownish orange) Applied under lower lash line
Milani Liquif’eye metallic eyeliner pencil in Black. Applied to tight line and waterline
MAC False Lashes Extreme Black Mascara. One coat.
 
Rest of the look:
Milani Baked Blush Luminoso (shimmery peach). Applied to cheeks
Milani mineral blush Luminous (soft simmery peachy pink with gold). Applied to highlight nose.
Lip Shine by Sacha in Summer Blaze (soft, shimmery orange lip gloss)
 
What do you think of this Tangerine tango look? The eyes are bright but the overall look is soft enough for me to venture out with this. I’m still looking out for my bright orange lipstick.
Happy Tangerine Tango!
XOXO

  1. Luv the simplicity of the look,colors are really soft and complementary, just thought that u could have mimicked the winged look with the liquif eyeliner to a smaller degree to match the winged look of the Serene Sunset...lovely look though.

    1. Hello Dawn, I feel like we are BFF's now! Thanks for the comment though. I was just playing around with my makeup, didn't have a clue where this would lead me. Would you believe I am a little intimidated by winged liners? but I'm practicing though.

  2. Love it. I agree with Dawn but beautiful nonetheless. If u want to try an orange lippie then check out Mac's morange or for a cheaper dupe Milani's Mandarina l/s. Its really pretty and pigmented.

    Here my swatch

    1. Oh thanks for the recommendation. I have been wanting morange but when i think about how often i would probably wear it, then i should go for a cheaper dupe. I'll try to find the mandarina if I can! Thanks

Hot Milk Sponge Cake with Fresh Fruit & Coconut

In today's yummy post we are doing an easy sponge cake (no creaming of butter and sugar involved). Instead of torting this cake we are using two loaf pans to give us our two layers, which we will pull together with vanilla buttercream. I love the rectangular look of this cake rather than the traditional round or square but more importantly the flavors of the toasted coconut on the sides and fresh fruit on top makes for a mouth watering dessert.
