It is advisable however, that you certainly try not to match orange clothes and orange makeup all together. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want to look like a walking mandarin fruit.

Here are some A-list celebs working the orange eyeshadow look:
Orange eye shadow is not only great for spring or summer time; it looks amazing for all seasons! It’ll open up your eyes and also helps to warm up your best features, giving you an overall healthy and natural glow.
Decide on the colour and texture of the eye shadow you would like to go for. Choose from bright tangerines, corals, apricots, peaches and matte, shimmer, cream, shadestick…the list could go on! As always, paler shades of orange are more subdued, wearable, practical and easier to work. Intense orange hues will look awesome on darker skin complexions.
You need to pick out one that would work best to suit your skin tone and skin type. Matte formula’s stay put for a longer period of time on oily skin and those with other skin types can go for lighter, translucent textures.
Get yourself three eyeshadow colours that would blend well and look great together; they should be light, medium and dark toned. Brush on the medium shade first. If you want a more bold and accentuated look, sweep the colour all the way up, extended to the outside corner of your eyes. Smooth the deepest shade onto the creases of your eyes. Finish off by highlighting your brow bone with the lightest colour.
If you are going for orange eyeshadow, keep the rest of your face simple with natural shades.
Do remember to set your lids with an eye makeup primer. It’ll enhance pigments and you won’t have blotchy, uneven colour.
Yes, you can create a smokey eye look even with this shade of eyeshadow! Simply dab on black shadow either on the outer corner of your eyes or line your lashes with a black eyeliner pencil and smudge.
