FOTD – Sunset Eyes

Hello and welcome a new series! I’m going to post my various FOTDs with a little background as to my inspirations, thought processes, and products I used when I created them. This goes beyond what one could post on twitter or instagram. Hope you enjoy!

This first post is a recreation of something I tried to do on New Years Eve, as well as something I wanted to do for a while. I received the lovely hand painted Christmas card above from an artist friend and knew right away that I had to create a look using these colours. I attempted to do this on NYE when I drunkenly decided to do my makeup while drunk. I figured this was better suited to do while sober as well.

As for techniques, I went with a C shape, working up in the crease/hood area and down towards the lid, sort of like a halo eye. I wanted to add the colours gradually until I popped the yellow in last. Right at the end, I added a tiny bit more eyeshadow primer and patted the yellow on with a shader brush.
