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.
