What if...you fell in love with the perfect color that was meant for only one part of your face (i.e. lipstick), but it was so beautiful and flattering that you wanted to wear it everywhere else, too? It's no secret that MAC's Morange is probably one of those colors for 99 percent of girls who come across this magical rouge. I love this color so much, I want to eat it. I rub into my cheeks, smudge it around my lash line, swipe it on my lips with my finger to create a soft stain. And I'm not going to lie, I bring the tube to my nose and smell it a lot.
Besides being the perfect flush-of-health hue, it has the right texture to blend in other places besides your lips. Morange has a creamy semi-matte finish, perfect for a cheek stain and just enough staying power for the eyes.
My favorite way to wear this beautiful, sinful color is on my eyes with matching cheeks and a nude mouth. A sexy-yet-romantic way to wear Morange— not to mention very modern.
On my eyes:
I usually take a Q-tip and blend a touch of Morange onto my lash line to create a soft coral-pink halo around my eye, then I finish with lots of black mascara. This is especially beautiful with green or blue eyes. Here, I went buckwild and decided to do a cat eye. It's was so very easy—easier than attempting to draw a cat eye with an eye pencil or liquid liner. Use an eyeliner brush and bury it into the lipstick so that you make a little divot in the bullet. Line your top lid, staying close to the lash line, and extend up and outward to your brow. Connect the outer corner and drag in the color across your lower lash line as well. Don't forget to trace along your tear ducts—they look especially pretty lined with this color.
On my cheeks:
Simply dot Morange on the apples of each cheek and blend with your fingers. A little goes a long way! Since it has a semi-matte finish, it will stay nicely for hours. You could set it with translucent powder if you have combination skin. As for my lips, I like to keep them naked-looking as it compliments and balances that Morange all over my face.
