So, we don’t always enjoy getting up early to watch the sunrise, but when we do it’s totally worth it, right? Those blended shades of orange, yellow and white are just so gorgeous. Now you can add all the colours of the sun to your morning makeup routine, thanks to the latest trend in eye makeup: sunrise eyes.
Say Good Morning makeup with Sunrise Eyes!
Now here’s a reason to rise and shine! Wake up and make up your eyes in warm yellow and gold tones to carry the sun with you all day long.
First, apply an eyeshadow primer such as NYX Professional Makeup Eyeshadow Base in White to ensure that your eyeshadow is highly visible, especially against darker skin. Use white or bright yellow eyeshadow on your lid, concentrating the colour on the inner corners, and a more saturated shade of peach or tangerine at your brow bone. Then blend, blend, blend. The secret to perfect sunrise eyes is all about blending to achieve the look.
There are two ways to wear golden yellow eyeshadow [link to 4.18.41]: bold and bright, or soft and smokey.
Get Up and Glow
If you’re feeling brave, a bright colour looks magnificent against dark skin. Our fave bright yellow eyeshadow is NYX Professional Makeup Hot Singles Eye Shadow in Stfu. Blend this into a sunrise orange such as Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Fireball or NYX Professional Makeup Hot Singles Eye Shadow in LOL.
Yellow Smokey Eye Makeup
In-your-face eye makeup is great for a party, but if you’re after a subtler look, use peach tones for a nude, smokey sunrise eye. We love Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Eye Shadow Palette because it contains 12 shades that are perfect for soft sunrise eyes. Use the lightest shade on your eyelid and blend out with a darker peach at the crease and brow bone. For a golden shimmer, use NYX Professional Makeup Hot Singles Eye Shadow in Gold Lust.
Finish off with a thin line of peach coloured lip gloss - yes really! - under your lower lashes. This will make your eyes look like the shimmering morning dew with a sparkle to enhance your sunrise eye makeup. We like Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Gloss in Touch of Toffee.
