Trend to Try: Summer Sunset

When you hear the word “summer,” what comes to mind? Our first thought is of beautiful sunsets comprised of smoldering red, orange and golden hues. With that being said, today’s tutorial focuses on the warm yet vibrant sunset-inspired shades from the Sigma Dare Eye Shadow Palette! These shades were a perfect complement to our model’s skin tone. Keep reading to find out how to get the look!

About the model… Rebecca has been working as an Operations Assistant at Sigma since Sept. 2011. The main focus of her job consists of packaging the various orders that get sent out to customers on a daily basis.

Rebecca says her favorite thing about working at Sigma is, “the friendly environment and of course being able to work for a company that sells something that I love: beauty products!" She also mentioned that yetting to test the products is also a bonus. (We agree!)

Rebecca’s top product picks include:
  • Dry’n Shape – “It’s the perfect tool to keep my brushes in great condition; I use it weekly!”
  • Synthetic Kabuki Brushes – “They give me a flawless appearance when applying my foundation.”
  • Paris Palette – “Contains gorgeous eye shadow colors and blushes that I can use every day.” (*We suggest getting this limited edition palette while you can!)
  • Classic Brush Roll – “I love this for traveling when I need to bring my favorite brushes with me.”
Before starting, prep your eyelids with an eye shadow base. Take out your Dare Palette and let's get started! (Note: our model had already applied brown liner and mascara prior to creating this look)

 Begin by packing on the shade “Grasp” onto inner 1/3 of eye with your brush of choice. (We actually opted for the F70 concealer brush for the job! Talk about a multi-purpose performer!)

Use the other side of your brush to press the shade “Catch” onto outer 2/3 of eye.

Next, use the E35 to blend the shade “Shout” directly above the crease, feathering it out to soften the look.

Smudge out your liner on the lower lash line using the shade “Reveal” and a pencil brush such as the E20. Finish the look by highlighting the brow bone using the shade "Escape." 

 Voilà - sultry sunset eyes achieved!
