We all have our tried and true summer makeup products we’ll never get enough of, but when it comes to adding color to our warm-weather routines, we’re not always sure what suits our complexions and sunny dispositions. We’re here to tell you that we’ve found it: Tangerine is up to the challenge. Ahead, find five of our favorite tangerine products that will instantly add a little citrus to your summer makeup routine.
Tangerine makeup doesn’t just benefit your overall look — it actually can do wonders for your complexion. The Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid in Deep Peach is a perfect example of this, as it’s perfect for concealing under eye circles and imperfections.
For a bright tangerine pout, we recommend the Lancôme Matte Shaker in Magic Orange. This formula slides on like butter and works to leave your lips feeling matte yet moisturized — all while giving your face a nice tangerine glow.
For a glossy citrus alternative, NYX Butter Gloss in Cherry Cheesecake is perfect for a nice orange glaze. We love adding this on top of Magic Orange for a double-take worthy look or wearing it alone of just a hint of subtle color.
To bring that tangerine magic down to your fingertips, Essie Sunday Funday is the perfect orangey-yellow lacquer to get the job done. This polish has the ability to immediately brighten your day and is perfect to complete a beach beauty look for months to come.
If you really want to celebrate citrus on all ends of the spectrum, try the L’Oréal Paris Semi Permanent Hair Color in Tangerine. This bright, temporary hair color is spot-on for your upcoming summer music festival but will wash out when the sun goes down.
