If you’re seeking more colorful eye makeup, what better way to add a little color to your look than by mimicking one of nature’s best views: a beautiful sunset? Sunset eyeshadow looks have become an increasingly popular makeup trend across social media feeds—and for good reason! The vibrant orange, pink, and purple statement eye makes for the ultimate eye-catching makeup look. The best part is that this particular eye makeup trend doesn’t require professional MUA skills to bring it to life. That’s right—as long as you have the right colors on hand, you’ll be able to rock beautiful sunset eyes.

HOW TO DO SUNSET EYESHADOW

It’s time to create a long-lasting sunset eyeshadow look! Follow along with this tutorial to create gorgeous sunset eyes.

STEP #1: PRIME YOUR LIDS

The best way to create a long-lasting statement eye is to start with an eye primer. If you don’t have an eye makeup primer handy, dab a bit of foundation or concealer onto your lids to help smooth things out for easier eye makeup application and even wear throughout the day.

STEP #2: CREATE A LIGHT BASE

Once your lids are primed, you can begin your sunset eyeshadow look. The best way to create a multi-tonal eye is to start by applying the lightest color first. That way, when you apply a darker color over it, it will be easier to blend with less likelihood of getting a muddy finish.

So, reach for the L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Eyes Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow Makeup in Crown Gold and lay it down on your lids as your base.

STEP #3: ADD DEPTH TO YOUR SUNSET

Using an orange eyeshadow, warm up your sunset. Place the orange shade on the outer two-thirds of your lids, carefully blending it with your base shade. Next, reach for a hot pink shadow to go on the outer third. Again, take time to blend where your shadows meet. Then, really make your eyes pop with a purple shadow in the outer corner. Blend the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Perpetual Purple into your crease for the prettiest of sunsets.

STEP #4: SHADE YOUR UNDER-EYE AREA

Now that your lids are all set, it’s time to amp up the purple cotton candy sky vibes under your eye. To get the look, use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Purple to line along your lower lash line. Use an eyeliner brush to gently blend the purple hue outward to help create a soft, shadowy effect just under your eye.

STEP #5: HIGHLIGHT YOUR INNER CORNERS AND EYEBROW BONES

Get ready for a touch of sparkle! With the L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Eyes Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow Makeup in String of Pearls, apply a tiny bit of color around the inner corner of your eye and just under the tail of your eyebrows for more dimension. 

STEP #6: CREATE A WING TIP

Just because your eye shadow application is complete doesn’t mean your entire makeup look is. Build the perfect killer wing with the help of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Flash Cat Eye Waterproof Brush Tip Liquid Eyeliner in Black. Starting at the inner corner, line across your lids and work outward. Once you reach the outer corner, create small flicks for a precise finish.

STEP #7: FINISH WITH MASCARA

Bear with us, you’re almost at the finish line! No statement eye is complete without a few coats of mascara. Take your gorgeous sunset eyeshadow look to new heights with the L’Oréal Paris Bambi Eye Washable Mascara, Lasting Volume, sweeping it on for instant definition.

Many people say nothing’s more gorgeous than a summer sunset, which basically means you’re about to turn a whole lot of heads with your new favorite makeup look.
