Tangerine Tango Eye Makeup

Orange is a fun and vibrant colour that is said to stimulate enthusiasm and creativity.  So when Pantone announced the colour of 2012 is Tangerine Tango, I was pumped to create a makeup look based around this colour.

And I really wanted to focus the orange on an eye look because orange looks so amazing on blue eyes, it really makes those baby blues pop!

And this is what I came up with:

Products Used:
MAC Painterly Paint Pot
MAC Rule
MAC Antiqued
MAC Carbon
MAC Rice Paper
MAC Blacktrack Fluidline
Urban Decay 24/7 Zero
MAC Zoomlash
MAC Lingering
Eylure lashes in Cheryl
MUFE Mat Velvet +
Graftobian powder
MAC Omega
MAC Gingerly
MUFE Rouge Artist Intense #23
Face Atelier Peach lip glaze
