Sunset Eyeshadow Tutorial

I cannot believe the last time I did a makeup tutorial post was the 24th of January, that is way too long ago so here is a new one, with lots more to come!

After getting some inspiration from Pinterest I came up with this eye makeup look that I could only describe as looking like a sunset. Now I didn't add anything to my eyelashes because I really wanted this all to be about the eyelids (that sounds really odd!)

Products I used:

  • Sleek - Oh So Special Palette - Buy HERE (my palette is the old version)
  • MAC - Cranberry Eyeshadow - Buy HERE
  • Urban Decay - Half Baked Eyeshadow - Buy HERE
  • Rimmel - Exaggerate Eyeliner - Black - Buy HERE

What I did:

The first step I took to create the look was to put the dark brown eyeshadow from my Sleek palette very lightly through the crease, this is being used as a transition colour.

Next I packed my Urban Decay Half Baked shadow all over the lid using my finger to get a true gold colour. I also ran this on my lower lash line.

Then using Cranberry, I ran this through my crease and blended out the edges to make sure it was seamless and had a smokey look to it. I applied this to the outer third of my lower lash line.

After realising the berry shade had gone over the gold I started to pack more gold and blend the two together so it was seamless. 

Once I had reached my desired look I added some winged liner and that was my final look!

I really think the berry shade and gold compliment each other very nicely and I hope you like this look.

The colours haven't come out as vibrant on camera but I love this look, it really does remind me of a sunset.
