Pink Golden Sunset Shadow Day/Night Tutorial

I'm forever a good ole neutral eye, but sometimes I want some color. Here are two quick eye looks, one for day and night, using the same shadow trio: Wet N Wild's I'm Getting Sunburned. This trio is around $2-3, and is heavily pigmented, so it's a great drugstore shadow and deal. Inspired by the sunset, summer, golden, bronzed things, and because sunburned eyes doesn't sound appealing. ;)

{pink, copper-brown, gold}
{Feeling the summer vibe yet? Sunsets?}

D A Y T I M E:
{dreaming of the beach, aren't you?}

  • Pat the golden shade all over the lid.
  • Brush the pink shade into the crease and blend into the outer corner.
  • Add brown liner along upper/lower lash line (and a tiny bit of the copper-brown shade).
  • Apply mascara to top lashes only

N I G H T:
{thinking about the beach, aren't you?}
  • Brush the golden shade all over the lid.
  • Apply the pink shade in the inner corner of the eye and very lightly under the brows.
  • Sweep the darkest shade into the crease and bring down into the outer corner.
  • Add heavy brown eyeliner and smudge.
  • Smudge darkest shade along upper and lower lash lines.
  • Apply mascara, at least 2 coats, to top/bottom lashes.

Do you wear different shadows in the summer?


  1. OMG your eye makeup seriously looks amazing!!
    And thanks so much for the comment on my blog! Would you like to follow each other?

  2. I love this post! I am the worst with eye makeup... it's embarrasing! Love that you showed where you put everything! You made me wanna switch up my look... so thank you :)

  3. $2-3?! That's a bargain and looks really nice too!

  4. This is an amazing look, love what you did!

  5. Hi Elle,
    Love this look. Yes, I do lighten up for summer. I like the creme eye color by Laura Mercier. I'm real lazy and I like to apply with my finger. Easy to keep in the gym bag, not brushes required.

  6. That a really pretty palette - and I love both the night and day looks.

  8. I've always struggled with the night time look so now I have an excuse to practice. Fantastic post.

  9. you're a great make up guru! wow. love your eye make up!

    It’s a GIRL Thing

  10. I love the color... Perfect also for day looks!

  11. This is so pretty! I often forget to change my makeup when going from day to night, but I love how the night look has a little bit more drama to it!

  12. Every time I read your eye-tutorials, I always feel like going to our local drugstore right away to get me some WetnWild or Elf stuff...bad influence, Elle:P

  13. Love this! I have a very similar palette from clinique, trying this look tomorrow :)

  14. wet n wild continues to impress. on the cheap you cannot beat them. great quality products and the pigmentation is gorgeous! very nice elle.

  15. I love peachy pink colors for the summer. I'm wearing some right now.

  16. beautiful! I love those colors!

  17. very pretty. I love that you use Wet N Wild. Some beauty bloggers turn their noses up to "cheap" brands and I hate that!

  18. Pretty! I didn't think such an inexpensive brand would be that heavily pigmented.

  19. Pretty, I like the soft effect it has. I personally don't change up my eyeshadow much at all, but I'm boring and like a routine. I'm happy to sweep some champagne shade over my eyelids and leave it at that.

  20. Your eyes look fabulous! Nothing I like better than summer eyes :) xoxo

  21. Such a pretty summer eye!!
