Sunset Stilettos – Makeup Look

 

Sometimes there simply just aren’t enough hours in the day to do all the things you want to do. When my twitter and blogger friend Amrita (The 6 inch Stilettos) invited her readers to take part in her ‘1 week sunset makeup challenge’ I was super excited and couldn’t wait to take part, even though I already owned and loved the prize which was up for grabs (the ‘sunset’ 12 eyeshadow palette from Sleek Makeup) I just wanted to take part for the fun of it, but frustratingly I ran out of time. Anyway, enough of crying of spilt milk, I still  wanted to play with my bright eyeshadows and create a classic sunset look inspired from this photo: A beautiful sunset over Oakland Beach, in Rhode Island. (source: Google Omages)

and this is my interpretation.

For the eyes, I used, layered over two faced shadow insurance and nyx jumbo pencil in milk, 2 colours Sleek Makeup Acid palette on the crease (the purple and the fuchsia) Shu Uemura Yellow Eyeliner as a base for my yellow, Nyx single eyeshadow in mellow yelllow, the orange I use aaaalll the time from the ‘eBay makeup palette’ . As a highlighter I used Mac Vanilla (quelle surprise?) and 17 Cosmetics Lilac Shimmer.

For the undereye area, my favourite eyepencil from revlon matte in oure white,  Eyeko line and shine on the lower lashline, layered with the purple from the acid palette from Sleek Makeup. I don’t know quite frankly, I keep on buying purple eyeshadows, coz I always instinctively reach out for the acid purple for my purple cravings.

I leave you with other sunset pictures. Are you inspired to create a look? You won’t win anything, other than the pleasure of playing with bright colours just for the fun of it :)  x

Check you out! *wolf whistles* It looks fantastic! I did a little flick up and down between your pic and the sunset pic and you've really managed to capture the sunset theme! :)

I keep hearing people mentioning the NYX milk pencil...should I be jumping on the bandwagon and buying one then? What's it all about?
