Lilac and Hot Orange
The combination of lilac and bright orange looks great on any skin tone. When paired together, these two contrasting colors look effortlessly chic and glamorous. For eyeshadow, we recommend doing a smokey eye with three different shades of lilac. Apply the lightest shade of purple into the inner corners of your eye. Next, take the second lightest shade and use it as a transition shade by applying it to your crease. Then, take the darkest shade and blend it in the outer corners of your eye. Finish off by applying some winged eyeliner to make your eyeshadow pop even more. For blush and lipstick, go with hot orange shades.
