"Salmon Makeup" Is My New Obsession: Here Are the Products I Use to Do It

As someone with really warm undertones, orange makeup has been a longtime friend of mine. While placing cool-toned pinks, purples, and blues against my skin is like trying to make "fetch" happen in a world owned by Regina George, corals, peaches, and oranges look right every time.

Luckily for me, orange makeup is enjoying a bit of a moment: We saw sunset orange hues all over NYFW this September at shows like Alice + Olivia, Rodarte, and Anna Sui. We've seen it on red carpets, like the incredible coral eye on Tracee Ellis Ross at this year's Emmys. Recently, I surveyed my makeup collection and realized orange dominates the color scheme.

So before a recent night out, I decided to pile all my tangerine-y favorites all on my face at once. This experiment resulted in the above selfie, which I posted on Instagram, inviting a ton of questions about what I was wearing on my face. I playfully called the look "sushi makeup" since it's basically the exact color of salmon sashimi. "You have to do a tutorial on your sushi look for Byrdie," my co-worker, Byrdie's wellness editor Victoria, told me the next day.

I've been trying out this orange-on-orange look for a few months now and think I've just about nailed down my favorite products to execute it. Keep scrolling to discover my favorite orange products for achieving a "salmon makeup" look.
