Yes, you can wear orange eyeshadow. Technically, it’s more of an apricot, but regardless, NARS Ramatuelle Trio Eyeshadow proves that orange is not only wearable, but flattering, too. In fact, the apricot strip in NARS Ramatuelle almost comes across as a warm brown on the eyes. But more interesting than your typical neutral. That’s actually how we’d describe Ramatuelle overall — a step up from your typical neutral eyeshadows, but still soft and accessible. And bonus points to me…I found a scarf to match this trio perfectly (Zara).
The icy blue, champagne shimmer and apricot don’t seem to go together at first glance. But wearing all three shades together is magical, and simple. Champange on the lid (or all over), apricot in the crease and the icy blue on the inner corner. I actually like to take my favorite brush for detail work and drag the icy blue under the low lash line a bit. Paired with a swipe of black eyeliner on the waterline (NARS Larger than Life Via Venota, for example), eyes pop like out of your head!
I find NARS duos and trios a fun challenge. How can I go outside of the usual a bit and wear the colors of the season? This is by far the most wearable trio from NARS. The shadows are smooth and pigmented. And it’s even mama-approved. For Mother’s Day, I did my mom’s makeup and she was hesitant when I flashed Ramatuelle at her. But she looked gorgeous and glowy thanks to that icy blue on the inner corners!
What do you think? Are you feeling Ramatuelle? Hesitant to wear orange eyeshadow? I’m actually wearing it in this picture…betcha thought it was brown!
