Tutorial: Here's Exactly How to Pull Off Sunset Eye Makeup

Updated 01/31/18

Celebrity makeup artist Tobi Henney has done makeup for the red carpet, for magazine covers, and ad campaigns. Consequently, her Instagram account is full of some of the most recognizable models in the world adorned with fresh and editorial beauty looks (go check it out).

Here, she shows us how she uses warm-toned orange and ochre colors to create a super-trendy "sunset" eye look on Aussie supermodel Bambi Northwood Blyth. If the thought of orange eye shadow makes you cringe, it shouldn't. She shows us exactly how to keep it looking elevated and chic, not messy or garish, with this easy-to-follow step-by-step tutorial.

She even offers up expert tips along the way, like why you should match your foundation to your arm (not your neck!), why applying mascara with a makeup brush is best, and more. Watch the video to see Henney’s makeup expertise in action.
