Bold hues are not a natural choice for winter make-up, but this season sunset orange hues, from tangerine to tomato, brightened up the catwalks at Dries van Noten, Narciso Rodriguez and Zac Posen no end. But there are a couple of rules you should follow to ensure that wash of shadow or slick of vivid lipstick looks right.
‘For eyes the most wearable sunset shades should be sheer and reflective in finish, use either a cream or a powder but avoid matte textures as this finish is less forgiving’ says Max Factor Make-up Artist Mel Arter. Try Max Factor Smoky Effect in Citrus Thunder, £6.99 or Illamasqua Liquid Metal in Enrapture, £17.50.
It’s a different story for lips, however, ‘for modernity your lipstick should be matte and orange in the true sense of the colour. The brighter the better.’ ELLE loves MAC lipstick in Morange, £14.
