People are more open to embracing all the colors in the makeup rainbow, but orange is still a shade that intimidates people. Despite our obsession with pumpkin spice, we’re still more likely to wear all the unconventional lip colors than try an orange lippie. It’s time that has changed.

Orange is actually flattering on a variety of skin tones and it’s easier to wear than you might think. The vibrant shade works on lips, cheeks and even eyes. And you can often get away with wearing orange on all three features at once.

If you need more convincing, orange is also the perfect summer shade. It’s vivid, punchy and makes all the white clothes in your wardrobe pop. Not to mention that it will easily transition into the fall for when pumpkin spice season kicks up again.

Have a look at 11 orange makeup ideas that will make you get over your fear of the saturated shade:

1. Orange Eyeliner

Who’s feeling peachy? There’s no need to get into complicated smokey eyes. Simply apply a stripe of orange along your lower lash line.

2. Orange Eyeshadow and Flicked Liquid Liner

Don’t shy away from black and orange because you’re worried about the combo having Halloween vibes. This eye makeup doesn’t. It will even convince you to try orange mascara and turquoise nail polish.

3. Peach Eyes and Lips

Remember that there are many different shades of orange. Take a softer approach to the trend with shades of peach. This look isn’t that different from your neutral brow and beige shadows.

4. Orange Eyes and Matte Taupe Lips

You can tone down a vivid orange eyeshadow by balancing it out with some brown. This combo of sherbet-y eyeshadow and taupe lips shows how it’s done.

5. Flicked Liner, Orange Eyeshadow and Glossy Lips

Take inspiration from flames or a sunset and add some red to your orange eyeshadow to produce a gradient effect. Complete the look with some elongated black eyeliner. If you want some shine, add a shimmering highlighter on your cheeks and a prismatic lip gloss.

6. Bold Orange Eyes and Lips

If you’re looking for a fun look, try applying a vivid orange eyeshadow around the entire perimeter of the eye. Go easy on the mascara so the color will really come through. Add a red-orange lipstick for a fiery finish.

7. Fiery Orange Lips

Keep the rest of your face natural but added a vivid touch with a fiery orange lip stain. Apply it with your fingers for a just-bitten effect.

8. Matte Orange Lips

Swap your regular red lipstick for a deep orange one. Mascara on the top lashes and a swipe of yellow nail polish will finish the look off nicely.

9. Brown Shadow and Matte Orange Lips

How pretty is that shade of orange lipstick? If you look closely, you will see that she has tied it into the eye makeup with a dot of orange on the outer corners of the eyes. Very clever.

10. Brown Eyeshadow and Orange Crease

You can start off small with your orange eye makeup. Liven up your standard neutral smokey eye by smudging a burnt orange shade into the crease.

11. Peach Eyes and Glossy Orange Lips

Yes, you can totally pull off a glossy orange lip. Pair it with a peach eyeshadow for a pretty look. If you want to try the blorange hair, go for it.
