As the heat rises here in Sydney, I’m easing back into wearing colour. One of my favourite colours at the moment is orange and I have been all over incorporating it into my beauty routine, and no, I’m not talking fake tan – I’ve avoided that stuff since a very unfortunate experience in Year 10 – I’m talking delicious peachy tones on my face.

For the cheeks, I have been alternating between my favourite Peach Glow blush from Natio and Benefit’s Coralista. They instantly warm up the face and add the most beautiful, healthy glow. I also adore Becca’s Beach Tint in Grapefruit – it’s a liquid that looks incredibly natural when blended onto the cheeks as well as on the lips.

I’m also still on the hunt for the perfect coral lipstick. I’ve been pining over the Sunday Riley lipstick in Havana Heyday and YSL’s Extreme Coral.

What colours are you loving for the warmer weather and are you an orange lover like me?

  6. I highly recommend the new Clinique chubby stick range called 'intense' or something like that. There is one orangey colour (more orange red type thing) that is SO good. Like, a really clear/strong colour, if that makes sense. Not bad for $35, moisturising too :)
    Lolled so hard at the inclusion of Lindsay!!!
