Look of the Day: "So Chaud" Orange Lips & Classic Cat Eyes!

Can you tell I'm absolutely LOVING this summer's orange trend?   ....It's a good thing that warmer colors look best on me anyway, or I'd be screwed!  Anyhow, the lip color I'm wearing is MAC's "So Chaud" Matte lipstick, which is a very vibrant orange color I had to tone done a bit with some brown lip liner.....if orange tickles your fancy, try this with a cat eye look adorned with a pair of wispy false lashes, like I've done here.  Perfect for an evening out with your girls, or for a sexy summer date! ;)

Sideview... man, I'm lovin' this orange!  :

Close-up of 'Cat Eyes'...I used an angled eyeliner brush and cream liner to draw a precise, winged-out line:

Orange Lips- one of Summer 2011's bold trends....sidenote: Matte lipsticks make my lips get shriveled up (no matter how much moisturizer I put on beforehand!)...that definitely annoys me because I'm OBSESSED with having moist lips!:
