You can recreate the eyes to this by follow these simple steps...

1. Apply your primer and/or base.

2. Blend a Taupe shade in your crease to give your eye some depth, I like to use a couple different shades. Start with a light Taupe in the crease blending up and outwards. Then apply your darker Taupe, but only tight in the crease.

3. Next apply your highlight shade directly under your brow, blend outwards.

4. Now comes the color. Being careful to only apply color to the lid of your eye, start patting Yellow in the inner corner. Next pat on your pink. Be careful when blending the two shades together. Light swipe your brush back and forth mixing the two colour together, Next apply your light Purple and dark Purple using the same technique. Last you`ll want to use a fluffy brush to blend out any shadow that may have fallen into the crease. Start in the inner corner of your eye and work your way out.

5. Mix a dark Purple and Black together. Careful not to apply too much product to your brush or you may darken your eye too much. Only apply a bit of dark shadow into the crease. Using a clean brush blend out until the dark shadow is smooth and smokey, Note: Keep the shadow right in the crease don't blend up too much or you could darken the rest of your shadow too much.

6. Apply black eyeliner along your waterline and upper lash line. You can use a pencil or liquid liner for your top lash line. I like doing a winged liner and like my liner to be waterproof so I generally use a liquid liner.

7. Next apply your mascara. Again you can use any kind you like but I prefer a Black, waterproof mascara, top and bottom.

And there you have it. All done. You have now have beautiful sunset like eyes.

If you think these particular colors aren't right for you then try a different color combo. Like Yellow, Green and Blue or Red, Orange and Yellow. Rule of thumb: Apply shade from lightest to darkest help create a smooth color transition.
