Sunset Eye Makeup Tutorial {Step by Step}

sunshine, i just can't quit you. you're warm, delicious to lounge in and you brighten up my life. i caught a short glimpse of what spring and summer have to offer and then winter had to butt its bully nose back in. thankfully i am heading to LA on Wednesday and will be reunited with you soon.

the tutorial below was inspired by a gorgeous sunset witnessed here in the Mile High City and if you frequent this blog you know i have been longing for spring. this step by step eye makeup tutorial will help to brighten things up a bit and bring some warmth back to your life.

step one: apply a golden toned eyeshadow to your eyelid from the base of your lashes to the crease.

step two: apply a bright pink on the crease area of your eyelid. use a fluffy brush to diffuse the color and broadly blend it.

step three: apply a bright orange directly to the crease of your eyelid using a pencil brush for precise placement.

note - i used last summer's Call Me Bubbles MAC palette for this tutorial but any bright pinks, orange and golds will work well.

hopefully these step by step tutorials will continue to brighten up your life, even when the weather can't.
