Before you reach for a shimmery aquatic blue shadow, like the Buxom Eyeshadow Bar in Schmooze, keep this in mind: "Turquoise, for me, is always a tricky color because it doesn't fit every skin tone, and it doesn't fit every day," Violette notes. On medium and deep skin tones, it looks fresh and vibrant. However, the bright blue brights out the gray and green in light and olive complexions and can make your skin look tired and dull as a result. The exception featured in this shot: light eye colors.
Although Violette mentions old-school teachings would say, "if you have green eyes, you can't wear green eye shadow. If you have blue eyes, you can't wear blue eye shadow," she finds that total nonsense.
The colors of the shadow and eyes work with the contrast, and blue eyes will naturally adjust to the look. "They become gray or green," Violette says. "But it's fun. You can change your eye color for the day."
When you're ready to proceed with your turquoise look, start off by smudging shadow on the inner and outer corners of your eyes with one of your fingers. "There's no better tool than that because we always have a tiny bit of oil on our fingers," Violette explains. Then, extend the edges out into your creases with a fluffy brush.
2. Block It Out
11 Times Celebrities Made Us Want to Wear Orange Lids
For most people, orange is one of those shades in your favorite palette that never hits pan. But After seeing endless orange eyeshadow looks splashed across red carpets recently, we're convinced it's one of the most universally complimenting shades, making all skin tones and eye colors pop.
And while I initially thought it’d be a difficult look to pull off, I found myself inspired by the spectrum of different ways you can wear it—from subtle to hyper-pigmented. Whether it’s a saturated, neon-orange cream shadow or a simple, burnt-sienna bronze, you can completely make it your own (with products you might already have in your vanity, no less) and you’re guaranteed to look daring and cool. Ahead, our favorite ways celebrities have demonstrated how to pull off the orange eyeshadow trend.
Wear the trend like Cara Delevingne by doing something unexpected with orange shadow. Here, her makeup artist used orange shadow to create a wing—note how it goes all the way to the tail of her brow—with a stain of contrasting pink shadow around her tear ducts to make it pop. We truly appreciate a good unexpected color combination.
Burnt Orange Smoky Eye
Green-eyed beauty Saoirse Ronan shows us how it’s done with a subtle, burnt orange smoky eye. Achieve the look with a simple, copper-hued shadow on the creases and highlight your lid and inner eye area with lighter shadow, and finish it off with charcoal eyeliner and mascara.
Neon Orange Shadow
Winnie Harlow’s runway look certainly isn’t for the faint of heart, but if you’re feeling bold, choose a high-pigment liquid shadow that dries matte, and keep the rest of your look relatively simple (we love how all she needed was blush, mascara, and lip-gloss). Proof that adventurous makeup looks definitely don’t have to be time-consuming.
All Over Lids
Marion Cotillard makes the case for all-coral-everything with coral-pink and coral-orange eyeshadow. Try it on your own by extending your shadow above the eye crease and finishing it off with white liner on your lower lash line and black mascara.
A good monochromatic look is universally complementary, and Charlize Theron pulls it off perfectly here by employing peachy-hued eyeshadow, lipstick, and blush all for one look. Finish it off with a swipe of black mascara and voilà—monochromatic perfection.
To create a monochromatic beauty look, Byrdie editors like to use multi-sticks to get the exact same shade (be it orange or another hue) on the lips, cheeks, and lids.
Selena Gomez is proof that all you really need to pull off the orange-eyeshadow look is glowy skin. Besides her cobalt-blue nails and out-to-there lashes, the rest of her beauty look is simple, pretty, and wearable for everyday. BRB, running out to buy an orange dress I can match my eyeshadow to.
Barbara Palvin somehow makes her bright-orange eyeshadow look relatively subtle and wearable by toning down the rest of the components of her look. Use a saturated orange shadow to apply all the way to your brow bone (like Barbara), and complement it with a metallic shadow or liner under your lower lash line.
AJ Odudu gives us a masterclass in subtlety here. A simple orange shadow is sometimes all you need—sweep it across your lids, and accentuate it with a darker, brown shadow on your eye crease. It’s as easy as that—and super chic.
Back again with the unexpected color combination, this time featuring Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea. Here, Barrenechea pairs her orange eyeshadow with a green and black contrasting cateye (likely inspired by her intricate earrings). The beauty look perfectly compliments her bright orange dress.
We're calling this look Sunset Eyes™. Note how Shailene Woodley’s saturated orange shadow is more concentrated on the eyelid, then becomes softer at the wings (with what appears to be an equally pigmented-pink hue on her inner eyelids).
British actress Eleanor Tomlinson shows us the subtlest, chicest way yet to wear orange eyeshadow if you're fair-complected. Pick a peachy hue that's similar to your skin-tone, and blend it so that it's barely there but still statement-making. Pair it with a flushed face and a pinky-nude lip color, and there you have it: glowy, gorgeous perfection.
11 Yellow Eyeshadow Looks That Are On-Trend and Wearable
Yellow eyeshadow might be something you've never attempted to wear, but this bright and sunny hue has become one of the most popular shades lately. We've been seeing yellow eyeshadow look everywhere, from celebrities on the red carpet to beauty mavens on Instagram. But how exactly should you execute a yellow eyeshadow look?
One of the most common misconceptions about yellow is that it's a hard color to wear. However, yellow is incredibly versatile and suits all skin tones, which is even more of a reason to test it out. There are so many shades to choose from that yellow truly looks fantastic on everyone. If you have fair skin, try a light pastel yellow on the cooler side; for olive skin, golden yellow and marigold tones look stunning, along with honey. For dark skin tones, almost any shade of yellow will do, which is all the more reason to dive deep into your makeup drawer to find the perfect one. From soft to neon, the possibilities are endless.

Touch of Sunshine
Yellow doesn't need to be bold. Wearing it on the lids in a delicate way is perfect for anyone wanting to try it out or tends to gravitate towards more natural eyeshadow and makeup looks. To recreate this, swipe a long-wearing yellow shadow on the lids, and you're golden.

This look shows how yellow on top and a jewel-toned hue on the bottom can create some serious inspiration for your next yellow eyeshadow look. Lightly blend shadow all the way to the browbone with your eyeshadow brush, adding more color as you go until you're happy with the outcome. Then, apply the shadow or eyeliner color of your choice on the bottom lash line for maximum effect. Be sure to shape your brows and finish with your favorite mascara.

Applying yellow eyeshadow in the inner corners of the eyes brightens up your makeup and allows room for other hues in the crease if contrast is what you're looking to create. Blend the shadow in the inner corners using a small eyeshadow brush to ensure it looks even before moving on to your crease color.
Urban DecayMoondust Single Eyeshadow in Fool's Gold$22Shop
Bright, bold yellow looks just as fun on as it is to apply, this shadow look shows how you can wear it all over the eyes without it looking overpowering. Apply shadow to the top and bottom lash line and finish with a few coats of your favorite volumizing mascara to set the look.

Not So Mellow Yellow
Pack a powerful punch with a bold yellow shadow and shape it out like a wing to make it look even more fierce. Extending the shadow to the outer corners of the eyes really makes an impact and switches things up from the traditional cat-eye look. The yellow eyeshadow against her gorgeous skin tone is all you ever needed to see for yellow to become your next favorite shadow color.

Liquid liner and yellow eyeshadow make a dynamic duo for this look; the contrast between them accentuates the eyes in the best way possible. Apply a dandelion-colored shadow generously to the brow bone and finish with a tight liquid liner on the top lash line. If you're feeling adventurous, turn the liquid liner into a cat eye for something a tad more dramatic.
Tarte CosmeticsDouble Duty Beauty Easy on the Eyes Clay Liner in Yellow$19Shop
Yellow varies on the color scale from deep golden tones to soft, lighter shades like this color (pictured). Reminiscent of a sheer lemon sorbet color, the shadow is perfectly applied to the eyelids. Whether you choose a cream eyeshadow or powder, use a shadow primer before application on the lids to ensure shadow stays in place all day without creasing.

21 Sunset Makeup Looks
Summer is so close that we can almost touch it, and that gets us more excited than ten brand new designer shoe boxes waiting by the front door when we get home from work. It seems as if the winter has been going on for an eternity, and that sunshine is most definitely overdue. We can’t wait to feel those beautiful rays on our face, wearing all the summer clothes that we’ve been hiding away in the back of the closet for too long.
If you’re just as excited for the summer as we are, you’ll be getting your makeup in check, ready for the occasion. It’s a good job that we’re super prepared, bringing only the very best sunset makeup looks to really set the scene. Summer holidays might not be on the cards for you, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a beautiful sunset in your life. Check out some of these amazing makeup looks, just in case you need some inspiration:
*There are affiliate links in this post.
1 – Slightly Spotty & Red-Toned
This look really did catch our attention immediately, a slightly more red-tinged look than the traditional orange and yellow sunsets you’re used to seeing. We also fell in love with the little black dotty additions, although you wouldn’t need to include that to make this look stand out from the rest. If it’s bright and eye-catching you’re after, this one ticks all the right boxes.
2 – Metallic Leaf Sunset Makeup Looks
Add some metallic magic to your look, with silver leaf pieces added just to the inner corners fo your eyes. You can keep the rest of your look simple when you’re adding those bright and light-reflective pieces, a subtle pinky-red, orange blend that works beautifully across the top and bottom. Boosted lashes help to make the look flirty and fun, a definite winner for our next vacay face.
3 – Shining Star Sunset Makeup
If glitz and glam is on the cards, this look might just be right up your street, a wonderful golden-bronze mix of metallic shades. Really pigmented shadows and eye products are going to be key to getting a look like this one as bold and bright as it should be, but you can help to add more colour to those shadows that don’t work well, just by using a moist brush to apply it. Using some of your makeup setting spray to make the eyeshadow brush moist can actually pack more of a punch when it comes to the colour itself. Try it — you’ll soon see what we mean. It’s a great trick and one that we learned from the pros.
4 – Simple Black-Lined Sunset Eyes
Keep things super simple for a look that you can put together in a few minutes, after work. Sweep the eyelid from light gold to a slightly darker and brighter orange shade, add a slick of liner, and you’re sassy and sunsetty in no time at all. It’s such a pretty look, and defniitely perfect for when you want to keep things still at a muted and understated level, such as for work.
5 – Lightly Dusted Sunset Smokey Eye
It’s a little bit like a smokey eye, but rather than the darker shades of black, grey, blue, purple, and others that you would use to recreate the look, lighter and darker sunset shades have been used instead. The lighter peachy-orange hue right on the inner corners of the eye, working into a darker, more-brown tone on the outer corner and cut crease. It’s a classic one, and there’s a reason for that — it works on every skin tone and pretty much every eye colour too.
6 – Pinky-Orange Sunset Hues
A slightly diffrent ombre look, working from the eyeline to the outer eye, rather than inner corner to outer corner, the colours used as relatively similar to many of the others that you’ll seen in this list of sunset makeup looks. It’s a little different because the direction of the blending has changed. It’s no longer working from inner to outer, left to right or right to left, but up and down instead. There’s no need for a slick of black liner when you have that gorgeous pinky-tone working the inner eye line. The rest of the eye look does the hard work for you!
7 – Shaped & Lined Sunset Eye Look
Focus all of your attention on one shade, as opposed to using two or more blended together, and give it some black liner detailing for a look this cool. It’s a little more structured and artistic than some of the other well-blended looks you’ve seen, and it will definitely require a steady hand to get that liner as perfectly finished. Of course, a teeny-tiny tipped brush with a bit of concealer will help to get rid of any minor damages. You know how eyeliner just LOVES to get all over the place … (It does that for us anyway. We can’t be the only ones, surely?)
8 – Sunset Slice
Capture your very own picture-perfect slice of happiness, with sunset makeup looks just like this one. An absolutely brilliant work of art, it just goes to show that getting creative, and even a little shaped, can bring to life something entirely wonderful. And this look is definitely entirely wonderful. In fact, it might just be one of our very favourites!
9 – Bright Orange and Purple Sunset Makeup Looks
Well, if it was a colourful sunset makeup look that you were going for, this one definitely checks all the right boxes. A fabulous purple, yellow, and orange creation, it just goes to show that clashing colours CAN be used together to create a truly amazing piece of artistic eye makeup. Clever blending, great, highly-pigmented shades, and some serious makeup setting spray is what you’ll need to create a look this awe-inspiring. We’re adding this one to the list of designs to try too.
10 – Jewelled Sunset Wonder
Adding some sparkle to the occasion with a gem or two, a perfect sunset look for a festival of similar social event. The look itself is wonderfully simple, and just perfect for blue eyes, as you can tell. Slightly more muted yellow-orange tones have been used to come up with this wonderful sunset, but it’s still a powerful look nevertheless. And a pretty one too, for that matter.
11 – Sultry Sunset Eyes for Summer
This sunset makeup look has got summer holiday makeup written all over it, and we’re flicking through vacation brochures right now, just dying for an excuse to get some sun and rock some sun. In the form of sunset makeup, obviously. Are you going anywhere nice on your holidays this year? Will you be rocking beautiful makeup looks like this one when you fly off? We’re not jealous in the slightest. Okay, we admit, we totally are.
12 – Sunny Blue-Eyed Look
Do you have brilliant blue eyes? Thus sunny look might just work for you then, but it’s not just blue eyes that these orange, golden-yellow tones are good for. With the right combination of shades, working either lighter or darker tones into the mix, you can make any of these makeup designs suitable for any skin tone oreye colour. It’s all about working out the right shades for you and then going from there. One thing is for sure; you’ll have a lot of fun playing around working out what works and what doesn’t!
13 – Fierce Sunset & Flick
If you don’t want the fierce blackness of liquid liner, leave it alone and use something else instead. You’ll often be able to get softer and more blended looks by using darker/black eyeshadows in the place of your regular liquid liner, and a thin-tipped brush made slightly moist can help to add some structure if you need it. You’d be amazed by how many different uses just one piece of makeup can have.
14 – Gold & Glam Glitter Liner Look
Bored of black eyeliner? Switch it up with a different colour instead, just like you can see in this gold and glam glitter liner look, which we also think doubles up as fab sunset makeup too. Don’t you agree? You could opt for any glittery shade you liked, mixing and matching things up dependant on the theme you’re going for. The gold shade works so well with that sunset backdrop, a little like molten gold.
15 – Good as Gold Sunset Makeup Art
Speaking of gold, you could really go-out with your luxurious, molten tones, fabulously displayed by this pretty sunset look. Tinges of red towards the otuer edges and cut crease bring in thedarker tones of those beautiful night skies, the gold covering the bulk of the lid to make the makeup design a really light one. You could darken things up, of course, but why would you want to? This fab sunset look is perfect, just as it is.
16 – Fabulous Rainbow Sunset Look for Brown Eyes
Fancy adding something slightly more colourful and unique, than the red, orange, yellow, and pink hues often thrown into a sunset makeup creation? Well, this rainbow look might just fit the bill, adding purples and other bright colours into the mix, really bringing it to life. What do you think? Are there rainbows in your sunset? If there aren’t, there should be.
17 – Glitter Lined Sunset Eye Look for Blue Eyes
Add some glitter to your black liquid liner to instantly jazz up any makeup look, elegantly displayed by this cute sunset design. You could use this tip for a number of other looks, for a number of other occasions, perhaps adding a touch of pink glitter for a Valentine’s Day event, or maybe even some green glitter if you wanted to make this look more St. Patrick’s Day ready. One thing’s for sure; the glitter liner brings to the sparkle to this look, and it’ll certainly bring the sparkle to your day too.
18 – Bright & Tropical Sunset Makeup Looks
This is a look that you’ll definitely want to pack away in your makeup bag for a tropical vacation, complete with palm trees and ocean views too. Who said that you coudn’t turn your eye makeup into a work of art? At least you’ll stand out from the crowd, that’s for sure. You probably wouldn’t wnt to jump into the pool with makeup this cute, although the drips running down your face certainly would be colourful.
