Orange eyeshadow looks for all eye colors

Orange eyeshadow looks are not just reserved for a World Cup, Olympics or to root for your favorite sports team during Superbowl.

If, like me, you do love a colorful eye look, you should definitely check out all these eyeshadow inspiration below. This is definitely also great as eye shadow for beginners, even if it is an impressive color.

No idea what to do with your orange eyeshadow? I got to work with my eyeshadow palettes and orange colors and created these looks as inspo:

Orange eyeshadow looks

Orange eyeshadow can be worn with any eye color: whether you have blue eyes, green eyes, brown eyes or hazel eyes … there is always a beautiful orange color that will go well with you.

If you want to know what shades they are, I recommend you take a quick look at our online color analysis!

I used a few different colorful eyeshadow palettes (rainbow eyeshadow palettes) for these eyeshadow looks, and I’d love to let you know all at once if those palettes are worth it or not.

In Revolution’s Boujee AF palette, I used the orange color. Very honestly, this is a palette that I think you can really skip, even though it is on sale in several places at a big discount.

It is very poor quality, so I would recommend you to look for another eyeshadow palette with matte orange colors in it.

Matte orange eyeshadow look

First of all, I want to start with a matte orange eyeshadow look. The orange eyeshadow in this look is from Glamlite’s Mikayla palette (the first palette).

  • Apply Buffalo chicken all over the moving eyelid
  • Benefit Gimme brow pencil number 3
  • Revolution prime and lock eyeshadow primer
  • Sexy Mama Benefit powder to properly blend the eyeshadow
  • 100% Pure long lasting concealer in color cream
  • Charlotte Tilbury legendary lashes volume 2 mascara (2 coats)

Start this look by first applying a good eyeshadow primer: the eyeshadow base will make your bright colors look that much more beautiful!

Then, apply the color Buffalo Chicken on your moving eyelid and take a little of Sexy Mama (powder from Benefit) to blend the color nicely towards your eyebrows.

Shimmery orange eyeshadow look

  • Everywhere buffalo chicken
  • Hot cocoa in the crease
  • Glow up everywhere
  • Benefit Gimme brow pencil number 3
  • Revolution prime and lock eyeshadow primer
  • Sexy Mama Benefit powder for blending eyeshadow well
  • 100% Pure long lasting concealer in color cream
  • Charlotte Tilbury legendary lashes volume 2 mascara (2 coats)

For this orange eyeshadow look, start the same as the previous one. Once you are done applying Buffalo Chicken all over your moving eyelid, apply the color Hot Cocoa in the crease. Blend well with some Sexy Mama powder.

Then as an accent, apply Glow Up (a rose gold eyeshadow), over your moving eyelid. Keep your crease as matte as possible with only Hot Cocoa.

Finish your look with your favorite mascara, which in my case right now is a Charlotte Tilbury mascara (Charlotte Tilbury legendary lashes volume 2 mascara ).

Brown-orange eyeshadow look

  • Buffalo chicken
  • Cookie everywhere
  • Simba crease
  • Willow outer v
  • Benefit Gimme brow pencil number 3
  • Revolution prime and lock eyeshadow primer
  • Sexy Mama Benefit powder to blend the eyeshadow properly
  • 100% Pure long lasting concealer in color cream
  • Charlotte Tilbury legendary lashes volume 2 mascara (2 coats)

Would you prefer a more autumnal eyeshadow look? One that stands out a little less? Then this brown and orange eyeshadow look is definitely for you!

As a base again, we first apply Buffalo Chicken from the Mikayla palette. This is an ideal starting color because it gives you a very nice orange base.

Then we apply Cookie over that, followed by Simba in the crease. Blend nicely, and then apply Willow in the outer corner of your eye (outer V) to give your eye look some more depth.

Finish off with mascara.

Pink-orange eyeshadow look

  • Buffalo chicken all over eyelid
  • Cookie all over
  • Simba crease
  • Willow outer v
  • immaculate in the middle
  • Benefit Gimme brow pencil number 3
  • Revolution prime and lock eyeshadow primer
  • Sexy Mama Benefit powder to blend the eyeshadow well
  • 100% Pure long lasting concealer in color cream
  • Charlotte Tilbury legendary lashes volume 2 mascara (2 coats)

Another very colorful eyeshadow look: orange with purple! These two often combine beautifully and I personally really liked that in this eyeshadow look!

We start again with Buffalo Chicken all over the moving eyelid, followed by Cookie. Then we start the accents: apply Simba in the crease and Willow in the outer V (outer corner of the eye).

To add the purple color to this eye look, now take the color Immaculate and apply it in the middle.

Still finishing with mascara, and your purple-orange eye look is ready!

Orange eyeliner

Maybe the eye looks above were a little too much of a good thing for you and you feel free to experiment with orange eyeshadow, but it shouldn’t get too crazy?

Then this is really for you: a nice neutral eyeshadow look, but with an orange eyeliner.

  • Benefit Gimme brow pencil number 3
  • Revolution prime and lock eyeshadow primer
  • Sexy Mama Benefit powder for blending
  • 100% Pure long lasting concealer in color cream
  • Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to mesmerize in color Oyster pearl (Marie-Antoinette)
  • Dior Diorshow iconic overcurl mascara
  • Avril le crayon in color Ardoise
  • eyeliner brush
  • MAC Fix+ and Revolution Boujee (orange color) applied as eyeliner

We start this eyeshadow look a little differently: first of all, apply an eyeshadow primer to make the eyeshadow sit nicely, don’t forget your lower lash line this time too.

Next, apply Oyster Pearl by Charlotte Tilbury with your fingers or a fluffy brush. Also apply Ardoise by Avril as an eye pencil.

Apply some of the orange color on your eyeliner brush, then spray with the Fix+ over it: now you can easily apply it as eyeliner on your lower lash line. I don’t recommend tightlining with this mixture.

Finish your look with the Dior Diorshow overcurl mascara.
