Everyday Burnt Orange Spring Makeup Look


                        Spring is a season that can bring many challenges to one's everyday makeup routine! Between constantly having that urge to wear a new lippie each day, which prolongs any morning routine, to being unsure of how to even go about your full faced makeup due to the ever changing cool to hot weather, your LILLEE understands, and of course has all of you love bunnies covered. How, you might ask? Simply said, burnt orange, with using a popular eyeshadow pallet might I add, is quite flattering on an array of complexions, and is perfect for the in-between Spring-Summer transition. In fact, burnt orange pairs wonderfully with orange reds, warm pinks, light nudes, and so on! One factor I love most about this wearable look is that the way you want this final look to come out truly depends on YOU as a person. For example, I took the route of looking ethereal, but with a more rusted eye shadow, and darker lips, this could turn out to be more on the sultry side of things! Nevertheless, of what you choose, I hope you loves enjoy, AND HAPPY EASTER XOXO.


Foundation is a custom blend, I produced 
2 parts of coconut oil, and foundation pigment.
Nars Cosmetics - Lipgloss, Striptease

Anastasia Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Pomade, Auburn
Anastasia Beverly Hills - Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Pallet: Burnt Orange (blended out towards my hairline, from the crease to the lower lash lines), Raw Sienna light definition), Primavera (inner corners, brow bones)
Laura Mercier - Caviar Stick Eye Color, Cocoa (blended up into the crease, as well as on the waterlines with a clean index finger. I built the pigment up gradually until I was satisfied.)
L'Oreal Makeup - Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara 

Minor pointers:
-As a rule of thumb, anything blended in the crease should be dragged on the lower lash lines for sultry, and light drama!
-You can, of COURSE, use fluffy lashes, but I felt the shadow spoke for itself. Plus, I associate mascara with "everyday" looks!
-Lipstick should be kept in the warm realm, UNLESS, you make this a neutral to cool toned look with vivid electric oranges, rather sunlit, natural shades!
