Okay, orange eyeshadow might not be at the top of your “need” list when it comes to makeup but you’ll be surprised at how versatile it is. Aside from the trendy sunset eye look, you can create a pretty diffused eye or go bold and neon or metallic. There are so many options, especially with a warm palette that contains all the shades to balance bright orange. Plus, orange eyeshadow looks amazing on all skin tones.
Choose a baked single eyeshadow if you want a more intense metallic look. Apply it with a fluffy brush for a more natural look or a wet brush for a look-at-me vibe. Or, if you’re sure you’re ready for a full sunset eye, go for a 15-shade eyeshadow palette that contains bright orange and yellow, but also neutral golds and browns. Add a pop of glitter and you’re sure to get all the Instagram likes.
If you’re not sure about bright orange, go for a more burnt pumpkin hue that’s totally wearable. And in a long-wearing gel formula, you’ll have a lot that quite literally cannot be stopped. Shop some of our favorite orange eyeshadows, below.
