Trend To Try: Sunset Shadow

VIBRANT pops of colour that are sure to make a statement. This sums up what has been one of the biggest trends in make-up this year. And one of the best colourful choices out there? Orange. Don’t think of the colour as being a trend or statement, rather see it as a basic you didn’t know was missing from your eyeshadow wardrobe. These celebs show us exactly how to wear the trend from OTT bold, like Cardi B, to subtle and sophisticated, like royal Kate Middleton. Whatever your style, you can incorporate shades of this trendy hue.

Naomi Scott wears a soft wash of golden orange across her lids and duplicates the shade on her bottom waterline.


Recreate Sophie Turner‘s pretty peepers by blending your chosen shade of orange across eyelids, brow bones and lower lash lines.

International Influencer, Jackie Aina‘s strategically placed orange eyeshadow does all the hard work, so the rest of her face can be au naturale.

Even Kate Middleton has been seen wearing a subtle version of orange eyeshadow. She uses a warm brown on the outer end of her lids and blends orange into the crease.

Bright make-up for the win! Amanda Seyfried pairs coral lipstick with metallic pumpkin eyeshadow. Perfect.

This girl is on fire! Cardi B‘s eyelids are painted in ombre orange, gradually going from light inner to dark outer corners. She doesn’t stop there but adds maximum drama with lashes. Would we expect anything less?

KEEP the rest of your face neutral. Pair Shay Mitchell‘s apricot coloured eyes with pale pink lipstick and blush in lieu of bolds and brights.

Vanessa Hudgens remixes monochromatic by blending orange eyeshadow onto her cheekbones for blush.

Experiment with both the glitter and orange eyes trends by wearing them across top and bottom lash lines, like January Jones does so effortlessly.

Margot Robbie adds warmth to her complexion with a burnt orange eyeshadow.
