Trend Alert: Orange You Glad

Orange blush is emerging as a trend for Spring 2009. I spotted it being rubbed into models' cheeks at Carlos Miele (left), Nanette Lepore, and Matthew Williamson. "I think it's a new way of using a bronze. Rather than having a shimmery bronzer effect, you can use an orange for a sun-kissed look," said Polly Osmond backstage at Nanette Lepore. She and makeup artist Romy Soleimani (at Carlos Miele) both used MAC Pro Color Base in Devilish Orange. "For Nanette, I mixed the orange with Cream Color Base in Brown. If you go overboard on the orange, you can always mix a little concealer in over it to it to take it down," said Osmond.

If you want to rock the look now, during the last few days of Summer, try Kevyn Aucoin The Creamy Moist Glow in Tansoleil. Or if you happen to have an orange lipstick, experiment with that.

Peach or coral are kinda my limits on this. I can't imagine orage on my fair but olive complexion.

I'd rather wear peach or coral then straight up orange since I'm so fair. Personally orange cannot be a bronzer on anyone, who gets a natural orange tan?

I think it looks horrible on her and it sure would on me! But now for nail polish, that would def be a different issue.

The best orange blush so far is Stila's Convertible Colour in Gladiola! The make-up counter girl recommended it for my skin-tone, and I freaked out at how orange it was in the pan, but when it goes on, and blends in, it really comes out to be a most flattering and warm colour :) So yup, if you want to try orange, try that. It also works as an interesting orange lippie.

Ew! Orange is SO not my color--it would look horrible with my fair skin.

I use orange blush for fall/winter, but the model looks to fake, in spring/summer more rose or pink
