Orange is where it's at for spring - Make Up For Ever, MAC, Chanel and Vasanti Cosmetics

By now we've all heard that orange is THE colour for spring makeup.  I don't know how you feel about orange, it can be a hard colour to wear.  If you are skeptical about orange you can always consider peach, apricot or coral instead - still in the orange family but not quite as shocking.  I've been keeping an eye out and wondering which lines actually carry a true orange and it seems that Make Up For Ever is your best bet if you want real orange - I've also given you some of the variations:

Make Up For Ever - Glossy Full Couleur - #2 - $22 - super shiny, super orange - if it's the true orange look you are after you will be wanting one of these!  Available at Sephora and selected Shoppers Drug Marts.

MAC - Lipglass - Ember Glow - creamy light apricot - $16.50 - from the Spring Colour 2 Forecast

Make Up For Ever - Lipstick - #201 - $19 - packs a real orange colour wallop!  Also makes a nice stain if a full lipstick is too intense.  Swipe it on then blot most of the colour off - very spring!

Chanel Rouge Allure - Génial - a coral-orange shade from the Chanel summer collection - you can see it on the couture collection models here.

Make Up For Ever - Eye Shadow #18 - $22 - use it at the corners on your eyes for a little drama or all over the lid for a lot!

MAC - Eye Shadow - Hot Hot Hot - mid tone coral - $17.50 from the Spring Colour 2 Forecast.

Vasanti Cosmetics - Rockies Blush - Coral Peach with subtle gold and silver highlights - $15 - the shimmer in this one is beautiful and the colour gives you a perfect coral flush!

MAC  - Blush Ombre - Ripe Peach - light coral - $30 - also from the Spring Colour 2 Forecast.

So what do we think about orange - are you planning on making it part of your spring look?
