Sunset inspired eyes : Yellow and Orange step-by-step eye makeup tutorial and FOTD

 

Hey everyone!

Today I’m doing a sunset inspired tutorial with bright yellow and orange eye shadows I picked up from Inglot some time back. I’ve always wanted to try out yellow and orange eye shadows, a while back I did a look with yellow eye shadow. Here’s another way to use yellow – paired with orange for a warm tropical sunset look!

Step 8 : Apply black/brown gel liner on upper lash line and waterline and trace the shape of the eye right till the inner corner

I have used Bobbi Brown gel liner in shade Caviar Ink and applied it right till the inner corner to shape the eye. While using very bright shades like yellow/orange/aqua/fuchsia, tracing a black outline all the way around the eye makes it more wearable. It also gives the lashes a denser look and enhances the shape of the eye.

Pair this eye makeup with a sheer coral/peachy gloss and a peach blush. I’m wearing Faces Burnt Sienna blush along with Revlon Colorburst lip gloss in Papaya
