Tangerine Tango Smoke!

Here's a great smokey eye look inspired by Tangerine Tango that's perfect for spring and summer evenings!
For those of us with blue eyes, this orange trend is perfect because it really makes blues pop!

1 Apply foundation all over and concealer in areas of concern. Set with a translucent powder.
2 Blend bronzer through the backs of the cheeks, and around the hair and jawline. Apply a peach-bronze blush to compliment the look onto the cheeks.
3 Pat eyeshadow primer all over the lid before pressing a burnt orange pigment from lash line to crease on the first two thirds of the lid. Blend your edges.
4 Press a black eyeshadow onto the outer most third of the lid and blend. Continue to apply the shadow and blend until you have a good level of intensity and a natural gradation of colour.
5 Line the upper and lower waterlines (inside of the eye) and smudge into the lower lashes on the outer corners.
6 Bring your black shadow on the outer corners of the lower lashes to give a smouldered and smokey look. Pack your burnt orange pigment onto the inner half of the lower lash line and lightly blend across the black.
7 Blend a light champaign shadow through the brow bone and onto the inner corners of the eye for a barely there highlighted look!
Apply lots of mascara to the upper and lower lashes.
Finish with lip balm to hydrate and naturally plump!
