Burnt Orange Eyeshadow Tutorial

I thought I’d share with you a really simple eye-shadow look I created, using three very affordable drug store palettes. This look worked really well, and has a lovely warm summery effect that is great if, like me, you can’t wait for summer to hurry up!

I completed my base make-up first, using my everyday make-up routine, which you can seeΒ here.Β I did use a few extra products today- blusher, eyebrow pencil and gel, and highlighter, but the main focus is on the eyes.

I started with a primer- MUR Focus and Fix Eye Primer, which I set in place with my Rimmel transparent pressed powder. I started with a pale pink shade on the crease, which added a very faint shimmer. This was from my Barry M Natural Glow Shadow and Blush palette. I would’ve preferred a matte shade, but I couldn’t find one quickly, and was too lazy to look properly. I used the second shade on the left below.


I then went over this crease with a darker shade from my MUR Redemption Palette Essential Day to Night. I used the third shade from the left, which is gorgeous, but there is so much fall-out! I tapped the brush a few times, and there was no fall-out on my face, so it’s not too much of a problem.


I then used a gorgeous orange shade from one of my MUR palettes- Night Shimmers. This is a beautiful colour, but the pigment is NOT good. I really had to work my brush into the product in order to get any colour at all. I worked this all over my lid (quite a few times), and ran it under my bottom lashes so it smoked out nicely. Both shades I’m referring to are those on the very right of this picture.


I then took the shade directly below, a really warm burgundy, and put a little into the outer corner of each eye. Again, the pigment was really bad, and I had to use this quite a few times.

I hope you enjoyed this post, and I would love to know your thoughts on this look. Let me know if you try it, and let me know your favourite looks. Would you like to see more posts like this? Let me know below.

Until next time,
