Sunset Eyes

Hey lovelies!

I've been loving publishing makeup posts lately as I find it so creative and inspiring to see the way in which artists use the colours in a palette to create their own masterpieces.

My sister Elena, as I've mentioned before, is a freelance makeup artist who does everything from bridal makeup to Halloween makeup and she loves every second. So, if you've got an event coming up or any sort of special occasion or blog photoshoot where you'll be requiring a few hours of professional makeup artistry then be sure to check out her page and get in contact!

The look that you see here is once again the result of my sister's handiwork and judging from the anticipation upon posting a sneak peek to my Twitter page, a lot of you can't wait to see the full reveal! So for those who loved it from the start, here it is!

The theme of the look is "sunset" so you can imagine my excitement when the day of shooting this look came around and offered me an early version of Golden Hour and gave the appearance of the sun setting in just the right place! I honestly wish that I could create this look every single day but I'm afraid that it's a little too glam, although take me to an event or out for a special occasion and I'll be sure to go back to Elena to get this look re-applied to my little ol' face!

Let me know your thoughts on this look in the comment section down below! I've linked all the products used at the end of this post so feel free to have a browse and pick up any products you want to try out! If you choose to recreate this look then be sure to tag both Elena (@elenapylarinosmua) and I (@notvicarious) on Instagram, we would love to see your photos!

Until next time!
