Beauty Pairings: Matching Gold Eyes With Fiery Fashions

Friends, you know we've got the best beauty tips in the biz (it's not boasting if it's true). But even our makeup experts have a limit — specifically, the neck. To apply the the makeup trends of the moment down the rest of your bod, our beauty and fashion editors teamed up for a peanut-butter-meets-chocolate type of package that matches what's in fashion to the colors on your face. Oh, this is gonna be fun!

Canary, mustard, and chartreuse are eye-catching party colors whether they be on your nails, a lively top like this Altuzarra sweater, or a simple pair of Kate Spade mittens. Spread a little sunshine, why don't ya?


Taxi mittens, $65, available at Kate Spade; Adam Broomstick Skirt, $300, available at Net-A-Porter; Eddie Borgo Silver-Plated Turquoise Cone Bracelet, $815, available at Net-A-Porter; Deborah Marquit bra, $195, available at Net-A-Porter; Mrs. Design Rock Necklace, $650, available at Luis Aviaroma.


Set yourself on fire, girl. With sherbet orange on the lips and canary over the eyes, steer down the middle for your choice in apparel, picking an outfit that offers a single tone in-between these two colors, like this Edun dress, or just anchor the look with a bold belt, like this one by Proenza Schouler.

Thoroughly Modern Musican Headphones, $67.99, available at Modcloth; Othermix Two-tone Genuine Leather Slim Belt, $42, available at YesStyle; Edun Printed Silk Dress, $500, available at Net-A-Porter; Guiseppe Zanotti orange suede glitter cap toe flats, $341.99, available at Bluefly.

Festive and, thanks to its amazing range, one of the most fun colors to play with, orange has nearly limitless potential, running from autumnal ensembles with amber tones, as in this Tory Burch bag, to bright, light looks, like an ALC dress, that start at the lips.

Karen Walker Eyewear Soul Club, $220, available at Gargyle; Maison Boinet Soft Leather Skinny Belt, $39, available at Intermix; Tory Burch Robinson Patent- Leather Shoulder Bag, $395, available at Net-A-Porter; Always Play Flare Skirt, $57.99, available at Modcloth.
