Beauty Jobs – 6 Ways to add Orange to your Beauty Routine

Beauty Nine to Five - Beauty Jobs in Canada

Inspiration Image

Backstage beauty shots from the runway predicted this trend months ago: orange is the new black. Shades of orange, peach and mandarin are taking over department store counters, social media feeds and our favourite beauty gurus’ videos. This spring, we’re giving you six ways to add this vibrant, juicy colour to your everyday look.

1. Lipgloss

For the Lips

Just like red lipstick, the perfect orange shade depends on getting the right undertone for your complexion. Skip the guesswork and go for a universally flattering gloss. Makeup Forever’s Extreme Shine Lip Gloss gives a bold veil of colour that is perfect on its own or on top of a nude, long-wearing matte lipstick.

2. Eyeshadow

For the Eyes

Nothing looks better than a sunny pop of colour on the lid. The newly released Bronze Palette from Kylie Cosmetics does just that while providing an impressive range of crease, outer V and highlight shades. FYI: there are thousands (literally!) of tutorials on YouTube featuring this palette in case you need inspiration.

3. Blush

For the Cheeks

We’re not letting you get away with a coral blush this time — go full orange for maximum impact. Make orange cheeks wearable by dusting a sheer tone over apples of the face with a huge powder brush. Pro tip: lightly dust blush over the tip of nose to pull the look together with the rest of the face.

4. Hair

For the Hair

Sorry brunettes, this hair trend only really works on blondies. A quick way to change your hair colour for the weekend, without any major commitment, is by applying semi-permanent hair dye. Manic Panic’s Psychedelic Sunset will bring your tresses to neon, highlighter orange heights you never knew were possible!

5. Nails

For the Nails

Bright nails typically make their way around the beauty cycle by this time of year. Steer away from the typical high gloss finish by applying OPI’s matte topcoat over a deep orange nail lacquer. The matte topcoat gives the nails a unique effect and warms up a complexion that hasn’t seen enough sun yet.

6. Tools

The Tools

This beauty blender contender was designed by YouTube royalty Pixiwoo and is loved by so many of us! The Miracle Complexion sponge gives flawless results at a fraction of the price of similar luxury tools. It made our list due to its large size, availability and most importantly, fun orange colour.

Beauty Jobs – The Orange Lipstick Challenge!

Thursday, July 16th, 2015


If you’re looking for a twist on a classic red lipstick—orange is the way to go. Although bright colours are often intimidating, finding the proper shade of orange is simpler than it looks. The key to finding your perfect orange lipstick is to base it on your undertone. My go-to trick for that is to look at the underside of your forearm. If your veins look blue, you most likely have a cool complexion, and if they’re green your complexion is probably warm.

Peachy and coral hues will suit those with warmer complexions, while cooler tones should opt for blue-based options. For those with deeper skin, an orange-red shade may be more flattering.

Here are my best few shade options for different skin tones:

Makeup Jobs – The Eyes Have It

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

Sometimes I feel like a bad beauty writer because, honestly, I rarely step out of the box. While I love pouring over magazines and blogs to find out about new products and beauty trends, I’ve been rocking the same bold lip/simple eye look for years. This season, it looks like that all might change. I’ve been seeing a lot of gorgeous girls with colourful, graphic eye makeup lately, and I’m itching to let my eyes do the talking as well. I’m not sure when I’ll be taking the plunge in public (change takes time), but I’ve been actively experimenting. Mostly, I’ve been emulating looks from the Fall/Winter 2012 runways, which were surprisingly colourful. Here are the trends I’m having the most fun with:

Bright Eyeshadow: I’m not talking about a sweep of shimmering lilac. I’m talking matte greens, yellows and blues applied all the way to the crease. I love how modern bright shadows are without any mascara, as was the look at Dries Van Noten. MAC Eye Shadow in Orange matches this colour pretty well, but I’ve also been using a matte green shade for fun. With shadow this intense, just be sure to cover your lids with concealer first to give the pigments staying power. (MAC Eye Shadow in Orange, $18)

Pop Art Wings: I’ve long been a fan of the classic cat eye, so this seems like a simple transition. The little dot under the lower lash line at Anna Sui is perhaps a little much for every day wear, but I love the shape and cobalt colour. Makeup artist Pat McGrath used CoverGirl’s LiquilineBast Eyeliner in Blue Boom and Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadow in Indigo Impact to get the full look, however I’ve had great results using the liner on its own. (CoverGirl LiquilineBast Eyeliner in Blue Boom, $10, available at

Coloured Mascara: Pink mascara seems so ridiculously ‘80s, but it just seemed to work at the Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture show. I haven’t seen pink mascara on sale anywhere (I’m sure that’ll change in the spring, since it was also featured at Donna Karan’s Spring/Summer 2013 show), but I’ve been pushing my limits by using Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash in Plum. It’s obviously a lot subtler, but I don’t think I’m ready for hard stuff anyway. I’d recommend it to all my other brown-eyed girls. (Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash in Plum, $25, available at Sephora)
