Wearable Trend: Orange Eye Shadow

Orange is everywhere, but it isn't the easiest color to pull off. But with a little help, it's not as intimidating as you might think. Amped, an orange shadow from Three Custom Color Specialists, looks really bright in the compact but is actually very wearable.

Chad Hayduk from Three Custom Color Specialists has some tips on how to rock the orange without feeling like a traffic cone.


"Color science tells us that shades on opposite sides of the color wheel visually vibrate against one another and we should keep that in mind when choosing eye shadows. Choose colors that contrast with your eye color if you're looking to really pop!”

Keeping that in mind, this color may not work best for my brown-eyed girls. But for the rest of us it's a great color to play with this spring and summer! 

Personally, I love to pair it with a deep purple liner or a bright amethyst eye shadow. Go easy with the lip color, choosing something glossy and lightly pigmented coral or peachy tone. A color that is too strong will compete and complicate the look. 

Unless you want to go full stop 1983. If that is the case, then go for a strong eye, lip and cheek! Are you bold enough to go for orange? How will you wear it?

  1. Orange works really well with pink and coral too :)

  2. I love orange shadow when I want to feel tropical, not stuck in the winter wonderland that is my reality!
