FOTD Friday: Orange eyeshadow, baby!

With the anticipation of all of the hot looks that I am going to see at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami, I decided to pull out my Orange aqua cream (#10) from Make Up For Ever.

I copped this baby at The Makeup Show NYC and have yet to really play with it. Leave it to me to choose the funkiest shade from the aqua cream line-up. But orange lids is truly where it’s at!

This isn’t my first time rockin’ orange shadow. A few years ago I wore it for for Halloween. It was just “eh” then. But MUFE’s aqua creams to take it up a notch. Aqua creams really don’t budge. I mean, at all. I submerged my hand underwater AND rubbed and look…

Nothing. Still there! So I put a bit on the lid and topped it off with MAC’s Acid Orange pigment.

This was a work look so I didn’t want it to be TOO bright. I left the orange on the lid and filled in my space between lid and brow with a brown shadow from my Coastal Scents 88 shadow palette.

To tone down the orange a bit I added a black matte eye shadow in my outer-V.

I sweeped a white eye matte shadow under the brow and bam!

Who knew orange could be so wearable?

My hair has me feelin’ like such a lioness. Rawr!

But nothing beats a pair of over sized shades.

Woot! I hope you are off to a great weekend. Be sure to check out the Clumps Facebook page over the weekend for backstage looks at Fashion Week Swim. And of course I’ll be tweeting like a mad woman while my assistant Nikki New helps me juggle between video footage and photos. The Clumps Intern, BriAna is the one that usually helps me but she’s in New York City for a summer acting camp. She’s the most awesome 16-year old ever.

Have you rocked orange lids before? No, you say? Do it, do it, do it. Yes, I am peer pressuring you. :)

Have a great weekend!
