The color orange gets a bad rap and many people think of, well, Cheetos, Oompa Loompas, pumpkins, canned tan, and a few others. But how do you wear orange without looking like a complete jerk? We asked color expert Jill Kirsh for some help.
Question: Can You Actually Wear Orange Without Looking Orange?
Question: So how does one find the proper orange without looking like a Cheeto?
Answer: Look at your hair.
Jill Kirsh has designed a unique and innovative color system for your wardrobe and your makeup that's entirely based on your present hair color. Yes, on your hair. She’s broken it down into the following simple and fun categories that work - Deep Brunette, Warm Blonde, Golden Brown & Red. She’s even put together a handy wallet-sized swatch book filled with fabric of all the best shades of every color for each hair color group. Take it with you shopping as it is your guide to what color you will look fabulous in and can be used from everything from tees and trousers to party dresses and stilettos. She’s also created mineral based, fragrance-free makeup kits with all your best shades for the eyes, cheeks and lips.
So Jill took the some famous celebs and chose the best shade of orange for each of them.
Burnt Orange - Deep Honey Blondes, Redheads, Golden Browns (Jennifer Lopez, Emma Stone, Anna Kendrick)
Red-Orange - Warm Blondes (Kate Hudson, Anna Farris, Reese Witherspoon)
True Orange - Deep Brunettes (Regina King, Lucy Liu, Katy Perry)
So choosing the right shade of orange can make all the difference in 2017!
