As the days turn shorter and colder, beauty addicts are turning to bright, refreshing shades for a change from the season’s usual neutrals. If you usually mark the arrival of late autumn with dark smokey eyes and beige lips, you may want to capture the beauty of sunset eyeshadow.
Living up to its name, sun inspired shadow is quickly rising (pun intended!) as the latest must-try makeup look of the season. Incorporating mixed shades of yellow and orange, sunset eyes combine gently blended warm tones to create a soft, sensual look.

On Instagram, sunset eyeshadow is quickly finding popularity among beauty gurus who adore vivid, youthful colour. To achieve this sizzling hot makeup trend at home, try carefully brushing on canary yellow, copper and coral shades. If you have a passion for glitter, you can also transform your eyes for the evening hours with a pop of sparkle.

The trick with crafting a beautiful sunset eyeshadow statement is to stick to fresh, natural skin and light, rosy blush. Try adding fiery colour to your pout with a pop of pale pink or dark red lipstick. Meanwhile, black winged liner and fluttering lashes help to set off your eyes and emphasize the highly pigmented eyeshadow.
Will you be rocking sunset eyes this season? The sumptuous fiery shadows are certainly an ideal look for a variety of skin tones, from porcelain skin to medium, tan and olive complexions. Minimalists also have the option to play with lighter shades or apply less eyeshadow, for an au naturel look which can transition from day to night.
