How to create a luminous beach-inspired eye makeup look

Does your makeup routine feel uninspired? Are you having trouble creating a naturally beautiful look? If so, take a cue from all the beach has to offer. From the shimmering sand to the deepening orange of the setting sun, Mother Nature offers up a refreshing color combination with every sunset, and those warm, glimmering shades look beautiful on the eyes.
This beach-inspired makeup look combines warm beige and peach with burnt orange and golden taupe. Since natural looks are subtle, skip the eyeliner and false lashes. No makeup look would be complete without something to emphasize the lips, so apply tinted lip treatment instead of lipstick to round out the look.

Instructions
1. Apply pale beige cream eye shadow onto the entire eye area with an eye shadow brush to create a crease-proof base for your eye shadow.
2. Sweep soft peach eye shadow along the crease and on the outer corner of the lids with a fluffy blending brush in windshield wiper motions.
3. Layer burnt orange eye shadow over the peach eye shadow with the fluffy blending brush.
4. Pat metallic golden taupe eye shadow onto the lid using a flat eye shadow brush. Tip: Patting the shadow into place prevents fallout below the eyes.
5. Curl your lashes with the eyelash curler, then apply black mascara to your upper lashes. Do not apply mascara to the lower lashes yet.
6. Brush your brows into place with the spoolie, then fill in the sparse areas with brown brow pomade using an angled brow brush. Diffuse the color and fluff up your brows with the spoolie.
7. Sweep burnt orange eye shadow below your lower lashes with a small eye shadow brush.
8. Apply mascara to the lower lashes.
9. Give your lips a glossy pink hue by brushing on the lip treatment with a lip brush.
You look luminous! Stay pretty!
