Marni’s Spring 2012 collection was suspended between girlish youth and confident womanhood. Although the ‘60s chic looks were structured and clean, little hints of whimsy appeared throughout. It was the collection’s playful accessories—two-toned oxfords and clutches—that inspired makeup artist Tom Pecheux to create the orange and white beauty look. By using shadows instead of liners, and by perking up the cheeks and lips with sheer products, you can make this work for real life. The bright, light colours are what make this look youthful and fun, so don’t be shy about using these creamsicle hues.

Spring, as it should be, is naturally a time for the spectrum’s brightest hues. But this time around, one hue in particular reigned supreme: orange.

Check out our eye-popping gallery for 28 ways the bright is being worn on the streets.

The celebration of spring fashion continues on our fingertips! From Pantone’s colour of the year to our spring trend report, things are looking orange. As the official shade of the season, it’s a colour that has quite the range: runways showed tangerine, coral, neon orange and everything in between. But it was a frothy electric orange and white combination from Pink Tartan that suited the needs of Nail Corner best. (While perhaps serving double-duty by slightly looking like a speckled egg, just in time for Easter?)
Worn with a pair of coloured jeans or a bright midi-skirt, the bold contrast of orange and white stripes on this sleeveless shirt adds a little flair to any outfit. ($58, thebay.com)
