Kelly Rowland's Orange Makeup

I saw this picture of Kelly Rowland floating around the internet, and immediately started thinking about how I could re-create this look.  If you've been keeping up with this blog, then you already know that I've been pretty Obsessed with Orange makeup lately (lol).

I think this look is a nearly perfect example of how to wear bright Orange makeup the RIGHT way.

To re-create this look, I would use.........
Blush:
I think Makeup Forever's Bright Orange Blush Powder in #18 is the PERFECT color for this look.  The color is extremely Opaque and Pigmented so I use a Big, Fluffy Blush Brush (that doesn't really pick up a lot of product) so that I get a sheer wash of color on my cheeks.

For drugstore options, either Milani's Mineral Blush in "Sunset Beach" or Hard Candy's Fox in a Box Blush in "Skinny Dipping" would be good options.  The Milani Blush doesn't look Orange in the pan, but it shows up as a true, sheer Orange on my skin tone.  Hard Candy's "Skinny Dipping" looks a bit scary in the packaging, but it actually looks more like a Coral/Pink shade on my cheeks.

Lips:
To get Kelly's sheer Orange/Coral lip color I would use Revlon's Lip Butter in "Tutti Frutti." It's a true Orange shade that's great for everyday wear because it goes on really Sheer and Glossy.

But if "Tutti Frutti" is still out of your comfort zone (even though it's sheer)............. MAC's Tenderton in "Purring" and L'oreal's Le Balm in "Caring Coral" are great options for a sheer Orange/Coral lip.

For those of you who are more daring, Milani makes a great Orange lipstick called "Mandarina." This color is extremely Opaque and has a Matte finish, so if you want shine just add a clear lip gloss over it.

Eyes:
I don't have a lot of Orange eyeshadows because I RARELY wear color on my eyes, so to get this look I would use Maybelline's Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in "Fierce and Tangy" on the inner half of my lids, then I would lightly dust a bit of the Orange Makeup Forever Blush (from up top) in the crease area.
