Orange and Yellow Shadows Are Having a Moment in the Sun

While blue hair may be having a moment in the fun, when it comes to makeup, orange- and gold-toned shadows are having a moment in the sun. We pretty much already expected the tangerine-inspired cosmetics trend to take flight thanks to it being Pantone's color of the year, but we didn't realize just how much it would soar. Not just limited to a straight-up reddish-orange tone, the hue has been spotted in various interpretations, but when worn around the eyes, it has more of an edgy quality about it.

Take Solange Knowles, for instance, who applied tangerine shadow and lipstick for a bold yet cohesive effect. Then there was Leelee Sobieski who stirred things up even more, her vibrant red lip color lending an added pop to her orange sherbet-shaded eye look. For Dakota Fanning, though, it was all about ethereal style, as she offset her halo-esque headband with coordinating shimmery gold and apricot eyes. In the immortal words of the Brady's, "It's a Sunshine Day," indeed.
