Spring into Color Conclusion: Tangerine & Solar (Video Tutorial)

1 comment:
Well guys, I have some good news and some bad news. I always say start with the bad news first so here goes. Unfortunately I'm going to have to cut my 'Spring into Color' series a bit short. I was really hoping to get through all ten looks but I have SO many upcoming looks for other collaborations/series/etc to get to that I just wont have time to do looks for each color. The good news is: Today's look combines two of the remaining three colors in the series so all in all I'm only missing one color. More good news, today's look comes with a tutorial and not one but two inspiration boards! All is well that ends well!

Provocative Tangerine Tango, an enticing juicy orange, is a vivacious and appealing refresher to enliven anyone's outlook this spring. Providing a jolt of energy, Solar Power radiates warmth and cheer. Together they are a colorful tour de force and I can't think of any two colors that scream summer more than these two. They are literally the color of the sun - and so that was the inspiration for my final look: a fiery, early morning sunrise over the ocean. Though, the more I look at it, the more I feel this look is the lovechild of two previous looks: My Green & Gold Tyrell look and my recent Driftwood creation. 

The shining gold center is my favorite part of this look. It's a combination of my tried and true Annabelle Mineral Dust Pigment in Solar and my recently aquired Goldilux loose pigment from Sugarpill. I got Goldilux after winning the Makeupbee & Sugarpill Bee Colorful competition (still can't believe it!!!) and I have to say, of all the things they so generously sent me Goldilux was my absolute favorite. I've been lusting after Goldilux for months now and I can't get enough.  Here's a swatch for those of you who aren't familiar:

 I die!!! This is the gold standard in gold eye shadows as far as I'm concerned. I just want to BATHE in the stuff. But I won't ... yet.

If you're feeling summery yourself and want to try this look, I've gone ahead and filmed a tutorial. I hope you like it as much as I liked wearing it and creating it. I'll leave you with a link to the video and some summery inspired image boards for outfits. Enjoy!!

Well, I guess this concludes another Pantone Color trend series. I had a lot of fun with this, so I hope you guys did too. Let me know if this is a series you like to see and whether or not I should repeat it again in the fall. Your opinions mean the world to me! Stay tuned for tons of really exciting posts in the coming weeks. Lots of collaborations, reviews, tutorials, personal updates and much more. I can't wait!
