TUTORIAL: SUNSET OVER THE OCEAN

TUTORIAL: SUNSET OVER THE OCEAN

Yay! I finally did another summer look tutorial for you! This might not be something you haven’t seen before, but I just wanted to do my version of a “Sunset over the Ocean” look and I hope you like it! It is actually pretty easy to do, so if you keep on reading I am sure you will realise how easy! Also, let me know if you have any great ideas for summery looks!

Normally I would apply my foundation and concealer before doing my eyeshadow, but because I want the orange eyeshadow to have a straight line at the outer part of my eye, I would need to use some tape which eventually would remove any foundation or concealer. Before I applied the tape, I put down some MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre as my primer. Normally I would set it with a translucent powder, but I have seen so many not setting their primer/concealer on the eyes and just go in with the shadow directly to give the shadow a more vibrant colour, so that is what I wanted to try today. Based on the final result and on how the blending of the shadows went I actually think I enjoy this technique and I will try to play around with it even more in the future.

The first shadow I went in with was Orange Crush from Coastal Scents. I used the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents to pack it into my crease. I did not blend anything, just packed it on. I then dipped the Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents into the shade Charm from the Androgyny Palette by Jeffree Star Cosmetics. Go in with Orange Crush again if you feel like the colour of it have faded a bit by the blending. Blend again afterwards. Keep going back and forth until you are satisfied. I then went into Bright Yellow from Coastal Scents with the same Pointed Blender Brush after I cleaned it off a bit. I then packed the Bright Yellow shadow onto my lid and blended out the edges of it with a clean Crease Blender Brush dipped into a bit of Cantaloupe Slice from Coastal Scents. Now take off the tape and finish your face makeup. Go to my Instagram @simonehjulmand to see a full list of products I have used for my face. Click any photo of this makeup look.

Now it is time for the blue part of the eye. For the liner on my lower waterline, I mixed some of Cornflower Blue from Coastal Scents with a drop of the Inglot Duraline. I applied the mixture to my waterline with the Smudge Brush from Real Techniques and used a bit of Electric Blue from Coastal Scents to set it even though it dries down. With a clean Smudge Brush, I applied some of the Electric Blue shadow under my lashes and up against the orange. I then used a clean Pointed Blender Brush dipped into some of Cornflower Blue to blend it out. Because water glistens in the sun, I wanted to apply a bit of blue shimmer on top of the blue matte shadow. I went into Blue Zircon from Coastal Scents with a sponge-tip applicator and applied it close to my lashline and right below the orange line.

I then finished up my makeup; I applied a mixture of Snow, White Sand, and Golden Dawn from the Ultimate Glow Kit by Anastasia Beverly Hills (*) to my browbone and inner corner. I curled my lashes with the Heated Eyelash Curler from Eylure (*) and applied some MAC Cosmetics In Extreme Dimension Mascara to my upper lashes.

I really hope you enjoyed this makeup look and felt that you were on a bit of a vacation while reading this hahaha. I think it was so fun to create and I am sooooo in love with it! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx
