Orange You Know I’m Engaged?

Ok, I know, my title isn’t the best, but it’s the end of the day and my brain is fried.
Dylan and I took our engagement photos with our amazing photographer, Rustin Michael, at Paramount Studios’ New York Street last month. We both starting working for CBS at Paramount and have a lot of memories there together. We still go on movie premiere dates and actually live in walking distance of the studio, so to be able to take photos there was incredible and super meaningful. I was pretty nervous at first because I’m not used to being a “model,” and it was so hard not to laugh while staring at Dylan’s pores about 2 inches away from his face the whole day, but we really had a blast.
I’ve talked about Lime Crime’s My Beautiful Rocket shade of lipstick, and I think it’s worth bringing up again since I wore it here. We did a heck of a lot of kissing, and while Dylan’s face was covered in orange stains, the lipstick did stay on pretty darn well. I didn’t even touch up for the four-hour shoot! It was so creamy and really popped in the photos. I’m so over the red lipstick look and I didn’t want to do some boring nude color, so My Beautiful Rocket was the perfect choice. Clients love it too. This is a must for every artist’s kit.

Lime Crime’s My Beautiful Rocket

Orange lip color is so overlooked. I’m not talking about coral or peach, which is what most people lean towards. I’m talking about true, tangy happy-go-lucky orange. Even I am guilty of it. For the mounds of makeup I have littering two thirds of my house, purse and car, I had zero orange lipsticks. What the heck was I thinking? Was I too distracted by the classic reds, hot pinks and nudes that I completely forgot the rainbow had an orange splash in it? Woopsie. Lucky for me, Lime Crime had a discount special for their Facebook followers and I snatched up their My Beautiful Rocket shade of lipstick. It’s described on the site as True, luminous orange without red undertones. Now, before you say “Well, Christine, you’re a makeup artist and do colorful crazy looks all the time. I’m an everyday gal with an office job, how am I supposed to rock orange lipstick without looking out of place?” let me show you how to wear it in a “normal” way.

Here, I forgoed lip liner and used gold, dark brown and coral shadows to accentuate the look. I even skipped eyeliner. The gold shadow is a frost, but I kept the dark brown and coral matte. Add a touch of matte peach blush and voila! A sweet and simple look with a slice of orange to brighten up your day.
