Sunset Inspired Smokey Eyes Tutorial (beginner friendly)

9:26 AM

Hello everybody!!
I fiiinally created a tutorial! I've been waiting to create a Sunset Inspired look for almost a week now! But the weather has been crazy unpredictable in Sri Lanka. It would be really hot and bright and then 10 minutes later the light would be cool toned so the struggle has been real since I work with natural lighting. Anyways! I hope you enjoy the tutorial:)

What you'll need:
  • Deep orange matte eyeshadow
  • Matte red eyeshadow
  • Deep purple eyeshadow
  • Bright yellow matte eyeshadow
  • Eyeliner
  • Mascara
  • False lashes(optional)
Let's get started!
Step 1
Blend the orange shade all over your eyelids and into your crease.
Step 2
Blend the matte red shadow into the outer half of your eyelids.

Step 3
Place the deep purple shadow right over the red eyeshadow we previously used and blend it out.

Step 4
Pat some yellow eyeshadow on the inner half of your eyelids and blend it in a little bit with the purple we applied on the outer half of the eyes.

Step 5
Blend some of that deep purple shade into the outer half of your lower lashline.

Step 6
Apply the same bright yellow eyeshadow into the inner corners of your eyes and onto your lower lashline, blending and joining it with the dark purple.

Step 7

Apply foundation to clean up the eyeshadow and blend the foundation out. This step also gives the eyes a lifted look.

Products I used:

  • All the eyeshadows were from the BH 120 color Second Edition Palette
  • Eyeliner was essence waterproof ink liner

  • Lashes were from good ol' ebay:)

I hope you enjoyed this look and definitely try and recreate it! It's a lot easier than it looks. All the best! Have a great day/night and take care everyone.
