Citrus Makeup Color Trends 2010 - 2011

Tangy hues take your makeup look to the extreme for summer. Succulent oranges, limes, neon peaches and lemon yellows can perk up a pale complexion or give a golden tan extra kick.

To wear the citrus look without overpowering your face, use a light (almost white) lemon yellow shade as a base from lid to brow bone, or at the inner corners of the eyes as a highlighting accent. Neon peach is pretty on lids and brings out green or blue eyes to gorgeous, smoldering effect.

Lime green worn as a secondary liner (either on top of black or rimming the outer edge of you existing liner) gives eyes a modern edge.

Pair this color with a traditional charcoal smoky eye and peach lips. Bright tangerine lips look fetching layered with golden gloss. You can amplify your bottom lip by applying a speck of gold eyeshadow to the center of your lower lip, using your fingertip.
