Create a vibrant festival look with fuchsia pink sunset eyes

Bold, bright eye shadow looks continue to trend, which is why so many major brands have eye shadow palettes featuring brilliant pops of color. Although neutral eye looks will probably always be the norm for business, vibrant combinations put makeup skills to the test.
This sunset look features yellow, orange, coral-pink and fuchsia. The tutorial includes false lashes, but you can use black liquid eyeliner and mascara instead. As the eyes in this style are so vibrant, keep your cheeks and lips relatively neutral. If you already have luscious brows, you can skip that step as well. Get ready to go glam!

Instructions
1. Gently massage moisturizer into your skin with your fingertips.
2. Pat and press illuminating primer into your skin to help the base makeup last longer.
3. Apply yellow-beige cream eye shadow to your eye area with a concealer brush.
4. Sweep yellow matte eye shadow along the crease of your eye with a blending brush. Brush the shadow slightly above the crease as well to ensure the color shows in the finished look.
5. Layer bright orange eye shadow over your crease and on the outer corner of your lid with the blending brush.
6. Sweep coral-pink eye shadow over your crease, and pat it onto the inner and outer corners of your lid with the blending brush.
7. Pat fuchsia eye shadow onto the center of your lid with the flat shading brush. Check colors before proceeding to be sure you can see all four shades.
8. Hold the false lashes with the tweezers, and apply a small amount of lash glue onto the lash band. Let the glue set for 10 seconds, and apply the lashes just above your upper lashes.
9. Apply liquid foundation to your skin with a foundation brush.
10. Apply light-colored concealer below your eyes, above your Cupid’s bow, along the bridge of your nose and on the center of your forehead. Press the product in with a damp beauty sponge.
11. Contour your forehead and cheeks with dark-colored concealer. Apply it below your cheekbones and on the upper corners of your forehead with the product applicator. Press the concealer into your skin with the damp beauty sponge. Suck your cheeks in slightly to locate the hollows under your cheekbones to help place the concealer in the proper location.
12. Set the light-colored concealer by pressing setting powder into your skin with the damp sponge.
13. Groom your brows, and fill in missing hairs by brushing brow gel or pomade through them with the angled brush.
14. Warm up your complexion by swirling bronzer along your cheekbones and upper forehead with the cheek brush.
15. Remove the excess powder below your eyes and on your cheeks with a powder brush. Sweep the brush over your entire face to set the rest of the makeup.
16. Brush orange eye shadow below your lower lashes with the pencil brush.
17. Apply coral-pink eye shadow close to the lower lash line with a shadow liner brush.
18. Press fuchsia eye shadow into the center of your lower lash line with a shadow liner brush.
19. Apply black mascara to your lower lashes.
20. Give your cheeks a kiss of radiant color by sweeping peachy pink blush onto the apples of your cheeks with a cheek brush.
21. Brighten the inner corners of your eyes by patting pearl shimmer eye shadow near the tear duct with the small eye shadow brush.
22. Set the makeup by misting your face with setting spray. Hold the bottle at least 6 inches away from your face to avoid getting wet droplets on your skin.
23. Accentuate your cheekbones and the tip of your nose by sweeping gold highlighting powder onto them with a tapered brush.
