Orange Is The New Black

Happy Saturdayyyy!! So Spring is here, which means one thing... those dark lips and berry tones are gone and orange is back! Orange lips, bright nails, coral blush, just YES. Hey, I've even included some orange related skincare. You're welcome ;-)

For the skin:
I know these products aren't just for spring, but because they're orange/citrus related I couldn't leave them out. Vitamin C is fantastic for the skin, and I've really been loving the Una Brennan Superfacialist Vitamin C+ Skin Renew Cleansing Oil. It's amazing for removing all traces of makeup, giving a hydration boost and generally brightening the skin. I use it morning and night at the moment and I've been following up (on a morning) with the Clean & Clear Morning Energy Skin Energising Daily Facial Scrub. I know scrubs aren't usually meant for daily use but this is really gentle and as I've been suffering with my skin lately I've been enjoying doing this as an extra step to help brighten my skin and wake me up.

For me, orange lips are just the BEST look for Spring/Summer, especially with a tan (which I certainly don't have at the moment, but I am going to Malta for my Brother's wedding in May so I'm hoping to get a bit of colour then, yeh boiii). My absolute favourite orange lip has to be MAC's Saigon Summer - a cremesheen formula that's so much more wearable than Morange. From the highstreet, there's some great orange lip products, and my top 3 picks have to be the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Audacious, Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti & Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Orange Punch. Now, not necessarily paired with an orange lip as it could be a bit too tango, I find coral/orange blush great for spring as it gives a really fresh faced look. For long lasting, I tend to go for Benefit's Cha Cha Tint, it's really pigmented and bright, so a tiny bit is really enough. For a a lighter, more sheer wash of colour I tend to opt for the Revlon Photoready Cream Blush in the shade Pinched. As my orange nail of choice, I'll be opting for Mavala's Waikiki Orange. Their formula's are always on point and this shade is the perfect amount of brightness for spring.

Do you love the orange trend as much as I do?
