BEAUTY QUEEN: COSTELLO TAGLIAPIETRA
Get the runway trend that you can wear right now.
Orange eyeshadow isn't usually on top of the "sexy pretty" list, but thanks to Costello Tagliapietra, the tangerine dream look might just gain a cult following among those who want a bold lid color but can't commit to cat eyes.

Besides being fresh and very pretty - and highlighting flecks of gold, blue and green in eyes - this is one of the easiest looks to pull off.
Take a clean makeup brush and dip it in a few drops of fresh water. Then drag your brush across a palette of M.A.C eyeshadow in "orange," as if you were lightly mixing watercolors. Lightly dab your brush across both lids, then make a semi circle from the bottom of your brow bone into the hollows of your outer eye corner. Fill in once for subtle effect and twice for "wow, you have orange eyeshadow on." And that's it.
You can pair it with an orange lip gloss (like CoverGirl's Nature Girl Luxe lip shine) or leave your lips bare. But even if you're addicted to eyeliner, try to keep a very light touch if you want to use it with this look - otherwise, we can't stop the Catwoman comparisons, and unless you're Anne Hathaway, you probably won't be flattered...
