This Summer, Try a Tangerine Twist!

Tangerine is a fun color but one wrong move, and oops you commit a faux pas! So you have to be extra diligent in the way you infuse your style with this hue. Here's how you style it.

Hello Everyone, thank you for your appreciation and also for your feedback. Even though I'm an Independent blogger, your views of my blog are of utmost importance to me!

I see the problem here. I believe in a blogger's freedom to express their beliefs. If Tara feels tangerine eye make-up and lip is great, perhaps she likes loud make-up... and power to her. But here I see her advising a follower of her blog wrongly. The comments should be well thought out and constructive.

Nice collage and interesting comments ;)

I was just admirng the effort to design such a cool mood board and here we have a fight on make-up?? :-> It's very individual girls. One tip doesn't fit all.

I cannot fathom why are we relying on a blogger's advice and giving it such importance here. Read the blog and if you don't like it don't come back.

Tara there is NO LIGHT SHADE OF TANGERINE. The terminology you meant is "peach" perhaps? Tangerine is a pop colour. It is sad to see you misleading readers as I,being a make-up artist, cannot fathom you thought of peach but wrote tangerine, and readers who asked you for advice may be wearing garish make-up. I'm out of here. Thank You for your time and courtesy to respond.

@Nandini I haven't retracted what I said. I agree that I mentioned you can go for tangerine too, since you're a makeup artist yourself I guess you understand that I meant understated tangerine, and yes of-course brown is a good choice, it's just not something I personally like. But still, thanks for sharing your tangerine tips with the readers! :)

Even saas-bahu soaps are using tangerine on lips but with hideous make-up on the rest of their face: think blue shadow!!!
17-MAY-2012 harshita Soni
yes I agree with Nandini. Brown or peach is a good option. Remember a beauty role: no pop colors on the face except one focal color, certainly not on lids and lips :O

Tara, you said: "you can go light on the eyes OR go for Tangerine too". It's sad to see a blogger retract their printed word just a few lines below in the face of queries. As a make-up artist, I would suggest a tangerine lip should be complemented with bronzer and brown eye make-up instead of blusher or anything in peach ... and yes the clothes should be neutral!

Hello Everyone, when I said try tangerine I have also mentioned 'go light on the eyes'. I myself prefer to go for brown or nude eyeshadow when I wear Tangerine lip color. For readers who want a bold look even for the eyes, wear a lighter tone of tangerine eyeshadow.

Well I find overdose of tangerine a little odd especially when someone is asking you for advice. I do agree, as you've mentioned in previous blogs, you write what you want in your blog, but to give the wrong advice?

I'm from Mumbai which is bindaas and experimental but none of us would pair tangerine with tangerine unless it was a fancy dress party
15-MAY-2012 Leena Mehta
You're advising a reader who looks up to you to wear bold tangerine lipstick with tangerine eye make-up? I'm no make-up artist, I'm an Interiors designer but common knowledge says such a bright shade of Tangerne can only be paired with peach or brown or nude!!!
15-MAY-2012 Kalpana Nair
i love the Orange shorts perhaps worn with a white singlet!!
15-MAY-2012 mandira dattani
Tangerine eye shadow and lipstick?????? Tangerine itself is such a strong shade it would only go with brown! WHERE DID YOU COME UP WITH THAT? A punk party?
15-MAY-2012 Tara
Mandira, Thank You :) Shonali: Great! Do let me know. Aastha, you can go light on the eyes or go for Tangerine too, just refrain from any other bright shade. Do let me know how it went.
15-MAY-2012 Aastha Bedi
What make-up complements tangerine lipstick? In terms of eye shadow or blush?
15-MAY-2012 shonali Kapur
Will try some of your tangerien guidelines and let you now how I looked:))

Hey this is a great collage. Sure puts things into perspective. i have always wondered what to wear tangerine with as its an unusual pop colour!!
