Sunset Eyes

Hello lovelies,

I thought I would share with you this quick and easy 'Sunset Eye' tutorial, I will list below the bits I used for this and then a quick tutorial. This is my first ever tutorial so keep that in mind :)

Equipment Used:

  • Real Techniques Starter Set
  • MAC 217 Blending Brush
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk
  • Illamasqua Eyeshadow in 'Hype' (Bright Yellow)
  • Illamasqua Eyeshadow in 'Victim' (Bright Blue)
  • Illamasqua Precision Ink in 'Scribe' (White)
  • Sleek Sunset Palette - Orange Colour Highlighted Below
  • MAC Vanilla Pigment


  1. First apply Urban Decay Primer Potion to your entire eyelid and blend upwards with your fingers. 
  2. Next, shade in your lid with NYX jumbo pencil to make a white base that will help your bright colours  to really 'pop'.
  3. Next take a base shadow brush to start packing on your yellow colour, I used the Real Techniques base shadow brush for this.
  4. Apply Hype all over the lid, use a patting motion to get a bright build up of colour.
  5. Take a crease brush (I used Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush) to blend your orange colour into your crease. 
  6. Use MAC 217 to softly blend upwards and out and fuse Hype into the orange.
  7. Next take a precise eyeliner brush (I used Real Techniques Pixel-Point eyeliner brush) and wet it, this way you can you your eyeshadow as an eyeliner. Take 'Victim' and using your wet brush to pick up colour, line your eyes close to the lashline from the middle to the outer corner.
  8. Repeat previous step from the middle to the inner corner.
  9. Following the natural line up from your bottom lashline, extend your blue line as high as you like it (see pic below) and then join with the upper lash-line from the middle and shade in the gap with more blue. Repeat till you get the intensity of blue that you want. 
  10. Line lower lashline with same blue.
  11. Go along the top blue line with Illamasqua Precision Ink to get a nice white line like sea foam, add white dots from the same liner into your blue and if you want to, pull a few white dots upwards to look like sea splashes.
  12. Apply Mac Vanilla pigment to the inner corners of your eyes for definition.
  13. Finished! now you can either add some false eyelashes or apply a dramatic mascara.
