Sunset Makeup Tutorial

Sunset Makeup Tutorial

Hey friends, today I wanted to share my Sunset Makeup Tutorial with you. I struggle with wearing orange makeup, so I thought I should try pairing it with my favorite colors, purple and teal. This is inspired by magnificent orange and purple sunsets over the sparkling teal blue waters of Maui.

Complexion How-to

Smashbox Crystalized Primerizer

I prefer to do my eyes first, then the rest of my makeup, unless I’m doing a super simple eye look. I prepped my face with Smashbox Primerizer. It’s great for my dry skin because it hydrates and gives a bit of a glow.

Smashbox Studio Skin Hydrating foundation in .1

I dotted Smashbox Studio Skin Hydrating Foundation in  .1 around my face and buffed it in with my Urban Decay Optical Illusion Blurring Brush.

To add a more ‘natural’ looking glow, I used Milani After Glow Strobe Light Liquid Highlighter. I dot it on, then use a brush to blend it out, and then finish blending the edges with my finger tips.

Em Cosmetics Little Lilac Color Drops Serum Blush

This is my first time using the Em Cosmetics Little Lilac Color Drops Serum Blush. I love the color and the formula does blend out fairly easily.

Rituel de Fille Intuition Inner Glow Creme Pigment

I used a tiny bit of Rituel de Fille Intuition Inner Glow Creme Pigment in the hollows of my cheeks and blended back towards my ear.

I lightly dusted Fenty Beauty Lavender Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder all over.

Purple Lips

Sugarpill Dark Sided Liquid Lip Color

I’m so sad Sugarpill discontinued Sugarpill Dark Sided Liquid Lip Color. It’s the most perfect purple lip color ever.

Lime Crime Plum Pudding Plushies Glow Liquid Lipstick

I’ve raved about the Lime Crime Plushies Glow formula before. I sincerely wish that Lime Crime would make an entire Plushies Glow collection because it’s my favorite easy liquid lipstick formula to wear. I like to tap it on with my finger tips. I layered Lime Crime Plum Pudding Plushies Glow Liquid Lipstick on top of Sugarpill Dark Sided to create the perfect lip for this look.

Sunset Makeup Tutorial Step-by-Step

  1. Apply Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin & set with Lime Crime Olympia on a fluffy brush.
  2. Build Lime Crime Nymph up on the lid and inner crease with a flat shader brush.
  3. Layer JD Glow Opal on top of Nymph to soften the copper and orange tones with a flat shader brush.
  4. Contour the eyes with a Sigma E25 brush using Lime Crime Cyprus in the crease, outer lid, and outer lower lid.
  5. Deepen the outer corner of the eye with a small fluffy brush and Lime Crime Genesis.
  6. Add a pop of sparkling teal with Lime Crime Saturn to the inner lower lid on a smudger brush.
  7. Tightline the upper waterline with Marc Jacobs Blacquer pencil and then line the upper lash line with Smashbox Black Liquid Liner. I also put on Eyeko Lash Alert mascara.
  8. Smudge Moxie Lash Magnetic Gel Eyeliner in Black along the upper lash line with a stiff angled brush.
  9. Pop the Moxie Lash Wifey Magnetic False Lashes on.
  10. Line the lower waterline with Urban Decay Vivid pencil & highlight under the outer eyebrow with Milani Strobe Light liquid highlighter in After Glow.

If you have hooded eyes like I do and you’re trying to find a good lash shape to flatter your eyes, I recommend the Moxie Lash Wifey Lash False Lashes. These fit my eye shape extremely well and they were no trim for me. I used Moxie Lash Magnetic Gel Eyeliner in Black to help keep the lashes on.

I know I’ve featured the Lime Crime Prelude Chroma Palette several times. I really need to get my review up for it, as well as for the Lime Crime Prelude Exposed Palette, since I adore that one too. Slowly but surely I’ll get through all of my Lime Crime reviews this year.

How do you feel about the Sunset Makeup Tutorial? Would you wear these colors? Or will you try other colors in this eyeshadow placement style?
