Sunset Inspired Eye Makeup using cheapee shadows : D

Here are some of the products I used to create this look

Here are the swatches of MAC's paint pot in Rubenesque and wetnwild's Idol Eye's in Techno

and for the shadows I used a cheapee eye palette I got at Ross for 6.99 they sell them there all the time, you've probably seen them before they have some funky case like pretend alligator skin  or reflective pink etc.

Similar colors to these would be NYX Eyeshadows in:

Luxor: Purple

Hot Pink: Bold/Bright Pink

Golden Orange: Bright Orange
Yellow Funk: Bold Yellow

Blondie: Pale Yellow/Gold

And here are some of the brushes I used by Tokidoki (35.00 for all three at Sephora)

Okie Dokie let's get started : )

First I used my finger to distribute Rubenesque paint pot primer  over the entire eye lid all the way from the lash line to the brow bone, then I took my wetnwild techno liner and used that to line my eye, both the upper and lower lash line.

Then take #1 purple or Luxor by NYX and brush that over Techno liner using your crease brush
Next clean off your crease brush with a dry paper towel and take color #2 Hot pink and brush that just up to your crease (not over OR in your crease)

then clean your brush off again and using the same crease brush use #3 bright Orange or Golden Orange by NYX and blend that into your crease focusing most on your corner V area- location shown below

Next take your #4 Bright Yellow or Yellow Funk by NYX and blend that over the top of your orange stopping just slightly on your brow bone

Then take your fluffy brush and # 5 light yellow/gold or Blondie by NYX and dust that over your brow bone- blending that into your yellow eyeshadow slightly

>Now add your eye liner, I used a black smudge liner and winged it out and upward just at the ends-

Then take your eye liner brush and some black eye shadow and just go over the liner with it: this will seal in the color, making it stay on all day and making the colors much bolder. Now don't forget to curl your eye lashes.

When I was done curling my lashes I added some Mermaid teal Mascara by Hard Candy for an added pop of color- this to me was the mountains just below my sunset hehe : ) 

Now if you choose to apply Falsies Do it now : D

Remember: If you feel like you've lost any colors, Pinks, Purples, Oranges etc. during the blending process- Don't hesitate to take your crease brush and that lost color shadow and just go over that area again you want all your colors to pop especially the purple pink and orange.

For the lips I used Maybelline's Forever Metallics in Ginger Sheen and filled in the lips using Covergirls hot pink lipstick in Enchantress (which is rapidly becoming my favorite bright pink lipcolor) 
Then for blush I swept Hard Candy's Fox in a Box blush in Hot Flash-  Just over the apples of my cheeks : )

And- Voila your done! This look is Bright, Stunning and Fun! Please try it out and tell me what you think- If you have any questions or comments please feel free to leave me a comment in the box below and Thank You Ladies for checking out my blog- Much Love Glamiees ♥ ♥
