Orange eyeshadow can be a neutral
Do you doubt me? Just look at this photo of my finished look? The eyeshadow in the crease is orange, and when paired with a pale color on the lid and brown lipstick, it makes a perfect neutral palette for your face. I loved orange years before it became the "it" color last spring. So I created this tutorial to show how you can use bright "summer" colors with neutrals that you can wear no matter the season. For a list of the products that I used along with step-by-step photos, scroll down.

MAC Double Shot lipstick
First I applied the samoa silk shadow on the lids. It is one of my favorite colors of eye shadow - a soft, peachy beige
Then I used a pointed crease brush to sweep the orange shadow back and forth across the crease of my eye
Then I put an off-white matte shadow under my brow to highlight the arch (what little of one I have)
Then, because I was in an experimental mood this day, I lined my eyes with a dark purple pencil liner
It doesn't look as odd as one might think, especially once I put on mascara. If it's too much for you, however, substitute brown.
Then I put mascara on top and bottom lashes, and covered up the little bits of mascara that I got on my eye lid
There you go - a perfectly ordinary look. Experiment a little - try colors that you think wouldn't look good together. Experimenting is how you find new things that you like.
