There is no color quite like orange to add some spice to a look. With the autumn approaching and the likes of Halloween round the corner, now might be a good time to succumb to the aesthetical charms of a pair of stunning orange contacts. But what do you wear with your orange lenses? Take a look at the following advice on what make up, hairstyle and clothes to wear to accompany your bright orange eyes.
For Everyday Wear
So you might get some strange looks when you walk into the office sporting a pair of bright orange irises. Whilst not a natural eye color, the unnaturalness of orange eyes should not prevent you from wearing this type of lens whenever you want, including during the day. The trick is to tone down other elements of your attire.
A gentle flick of mascara and swipe of gray eye shadow would be enough make up to enhance your orange lenses further without going overboard. As the color orange always goes well with citrusy siblings, wearing other ‘sunset’ tones, such as a pale yellow shirt with a red scarf, would bring out the cheery tones of your eyes without looking too gaudy.
. Go easy with the make up, just enough to enhance the beauty of your eyes
. Wear other citrus colors to complement the orange but keep them subtle
For Costume Parties
Orange lenses put the perfect finishing touches on a ghostly, witchy look at a costume party such as Halloween. Coming in various patterns and tones, you can really go to town bewitching fellow party-goers at such an occasion. Heighten the creepy enchantment of orange-themed lenses by surrounding them with blood-stained, elaborate make up. Scrape your hair off your face to really draw attention to your eyes. Alternatively, dye your hair a citrus tone, such as bright red or pink to bring out the tangerine tones of your eyes. Your costume should be equally as flamboyant. Instead of opting for more traditional witchy colors like black and green, wear a bold witch’s dress in orange, sported with a pair of black and orange striped tights.
. Go to town with make up, the more blood, dirt and creases, the better
. Draw attention to the eyes by scraping your hair back or dyeing it a citrus shade
. Wear a flamboyant, eye-catching costume, preferably another autumnal shade
For Evening Wear
Whether you are going to an all-night rave this Saturday or to a house party, orange contacts will ensure your presence is noticed and remembered. As orange goes well with blue, draw out the beauty of your orange eyes by surrounding them with tones of blue eye shadow, mascara and eye-liner. Your lips should be augmented to a similar eye-catching status with some orangey-red lipstick.
In terms of clothing, as orange is a fairly versatile color, you have the option of wearing very bright shades to more demure colors. Depending on the evening event you are attending, you could either opt for a bright red, orange or even blue outfit to really enhance the glamor and flamboyance of your look. Alternatively choose more demure colors such as black, gray or brown that would be equally as complementary of your orange eyes.
. Opt for blue eye make up to bring out the orange tones
. Wear citrus-centered lipstick
. Opt for either fellow bright shades or more demure colored clothes
Now stand back, take a look in the mirror, admire your handy work and prepare to turn heads this evening!
