Sunset Eyes

One of the summer trends for this year are so called sunset eyes. Warm hues of yellow, orange, red and pink are perfect for hot summer nights. I've seen this trend used in a really subtle way of just two orange tones on the eyes. You can obviously make it bolder and combine more shades to really copy the gorgeous sunset colors of the sky. I adore these kind of shades, so I did my own version paired with a nude lip. If you chose lighter shades, you can definitely pair it with a bold pink or red lip.

On my eyes I used a combination of very light warm brown and a yellow toned brown to define the crease a little. Then I used a light peach shade to define outer and inner corners of the eyes. The idea is to create a sandwich effect where you have darker shades on the outer edges and lighter colors in the middle. I also used a vibrant pink in the outer corners. You work by applying lighter shades more on the outside and then transition into darker shades as you go more inward. 

The next shades that I layered on were deep redish brown and a purple brown. As you can see, I mostly covered up brighter shades from before. This is just to make that transition more believable. Then I went on the center of the lid and I applied a shimmery tangerine shade all over the center of the lid. I took a shimmery yellow shade and applied it more in the center of the center lid. This way your eyes create a gradient from the lightest yellow shade from the center and transition into darker shades as you go to the corners of the eyes. 

I applied all the same shades on the lower lid. For the look I used dark brown slightly winged liner instead of black, because it makes the look softer and to me looks better with such warm shades. Then I applied lots of mascara. You can finish the eye look here. 

But I decided to apply on natural looking false lashes to make this look a bit more dramatic. It still looks very natural. 

On my face I used my usual foundation mix, concealer and I set it with a powder. I also used lots of light shimmery bronzer. This look can use a good bronzer to match the warmth of the eyes to the face. I also used a light golden champagne highlighter to give my skin a nice glow. For the blush I went with a really light peachy shade and I applied it really lightly. 

On the lips I used a slightly warm toned light nude lip pencil to outline them and define a bit. I went over it with a glossy warm brown shade. As I said before, you can also wear this with a vibrant lip shade, but I wanted something nude to not steal attention from the eyes. 

What do you think about this trend? I am definitely in love. I'll probably be doing these kind of sunset eyes all the time, just with fewer shades. A nice peachy haze on the eyes can instantly warm up your complexion. I also love to use golden yellow shades in the summer.
