We never quite saw this coming, but Gigi Hadid’s recent campaign shot with Maybelline set off the spark — and the closer we peered during our daily research on beauty news, the more apparent it became. The sunset eyeshadow trend is here to take over your beauty stashes.
A fleeting few minutes of mesmerising glow every evening, the sunset look comprises of colours that you’d usually notice during that precious golden hour every day. Expect to see hues of luscious golds, warm oranges, perhaps hints of fuchsias and lilacs, as well as luxurious jewel-toned metallics.
And recent eyeshadow launches prove just that. Colours were specially curated to create sparkly peepers that look just like a sunset on your lids. Have bronzer sheered out along the perimeters of your face for a sun-kissed finish, and you’d look just like the golden girl that Gigi is.
Natasha Denona Sunset Palette
This gem of a palette contains just the colours needed to create the perfect golden hour look. There are shimmery shades in gold and copper — those can go all over the lids, and then a burnt orange and brick-brown colour that easily makes for gorgeous transition hues. The fuchsia and yellow could be tucked right on the lower lash line, just to tie the entire look together.
Natasha Denona makes some of the most beautiful eyeshadow palettes, and this Sunset one is not different. We almost think that she might just have the Midas’ touch when it comes to makeup — whatever she creates sells out with great enthusiasm. The Sunset Palette might be sold out at the moment, but with response that great, she might actually restock it soon.
US$129, available on beautylish.com. International shipping is available.
Anastasia Beverly Hills new singe eyeshadows launch
If you didn’t manage to get your hands on the Natasha Denona Sunset Palette, fret not, there’s still a chance to score similar looking hues from Anastasia Beverly Hills’ upcoming single eyeshadows launch. These 12 shades easily scream sunset to us — we already have our eye on the pale yellow shimmer hue in Tiger’s Eye, and the warm lilac shade in Gemstone. There’s also a true gold shade, aptly named Sunset, that’s going to be smeared all over our entire lid.
These eyeshadows are sold individually, thought you can just buy them all at once and create your every own sunset-themed palette.
US$12 each, available May 16 on anastasiabeverlyhills.com. International shipping is available.
Violet Voss Ride Or Die Eyeshadow Palette
There are 75 colours in total, enough to create your classic sunset look and more. Violet Voss offers some of the most kick-ass shadows around, and with this palette you probably won’t be needed anything else. (That’s what we always say…) The pastel selection in the palette does look pretty extensive, and they go well with the warmer colours to create a softer, more diffused version of the sunset look.
US$75, available on shopvioletvoss.com. A third party forwarding service may be employed.
Morphe 25A Copper Spice Eyeshadow Palette
Just looking at this palette reminds us of the golden hour, when the landscape is being veiled in a sheen of golden goodness. Take that same image, and project it right on your eyes. That’s where the Copper Spice palette comes in. The shade selection is more focused on the browns and oranges, so if you’re looking for something sultry, this is your best bet. Plus, affordable too!
