Summer Sunset Makeup Tutorial

August 4, 2019
Blog post

I feel like it has been a WHILE since I’ve done a makeup tutorial! The truth is I haven’t actually been wearing a lot of makeup recently. It’s been way too hot here in the UK to even think about plastering a bunch of makeup on my face. Thankfully however the weather has finally started to cool down and I found myself reaching for one of my brightest eyeshadow palettes to create this summer sunset makeup look!


Contour, Blush and Highlight


  • I’m sure you can all guess my first step…I used the Urban Decay Original Primer Potion all over my eyelids.
  • For this look, I used the Beauty Bay EYN 42 Bright Palette and took the shade Make Them Wink as my transition.
  • Then I used Modern Way and applied this in the crease with a fluffy Spectrum brush.
  • Next, I used stamped the shade Drama Queen onto my outer corners, really packing on the pigment and then blending it out and into Modern Way.
  • With a flat brush, I took the shade Rise and Shine and applied this to the inner third of my lid.
  • I then used Orange Soda for the centre of my lid.
  • Lastly, I used both Tangerine and Drama Queen for my lower lashline.
  • To finish off I applied two coats of the Rimmel London Volume Colourist Mascara.

    Soooooo BeAuTifUl! I really wish the weather would cool down where I live ? Sadly, the heat is just how it is in the summer for me. I went off topic, but I’m a huge fan of your eyeshadow looks I’ve seen! I hope you post some more since the weather is cooling down! ?
