Setting Sun

Hey everyone!
Today's look is quite a Summery look and is very much inspired by a Summer sunset. In Summer the colours in the sunsets are so vibrant and intense that I just had to do a look inspired by it. I wanted the colours to be super bright and punchy.
 I put the yellow on the center of the lid to act like the sun and surrounded it with the orange and blended them into each other to look like the sunset. There is sometimes hints of purple in the sky during the Summer and there is a very pale blue during a sunset.

Here's the look:

I wanted the skin to not look too heavy so I really buffed in my foundation. You can still see most of my freckles and it still looks like my skin so it keeps the focus on the eyes.

I also went for a very natural lip. Like a my lips but better nude and a touch  of clear gloss. Again this keeps the focus on the eyes.

  1. wow! you used sooo many colors in this! I wish Inglot had unique names instead of just numbers!
