Sunshine Marmalade tutorial

Here's a quick tutorial using colors that I don't normally wear at all, both as clothing and cosmetics. This is a fun and juicy look that is perfect for summer parties!

What I used:
- Too Faced Shadow Insurance eyeshadow primer
- Yellow, orange and light gold eyeshadow
- Brown eyeliner (I used liquid but pencil is fine too!)
- Gold Glitter eyeliner
- Brown eyebrow powder
- Black (or brown if you like) mascara
- False Eyelashes (optional)
- Peachy-orange blush
- Gold shimmery lipgloss

Put the eyeshadow base on your eyelids and along your bottom lashline. Don't forget this or your shadow will bleed down your eyes when you sweat! :p

Apply the yellow eyeshadow all over your eyelid up to the hollow of your browbone, as well as the inner half of your lower lash line.

Put the orange eyeshadow on the outer half of your lower lashline, and slightly wing it out at the outer corner.

Take the light gold eyeshadow and apply it below your browbone, blending it with the yellow to soften any harsh lines. Put the gold eyeshadow in the inner V of your eyes as well, overlapping the yellow a little bit.

Apply brown eyeliner along your upper lashline, flicking it out at the outer corner parallel to your orange shadow's flick.

Put the gold glitter eyeliner on the outer half of your upper lashline, above the brown eyeliner and stopping just below your crease. If you are single-lidded, apply the gold in about the same thickness as your brown. Curl your eyelashes and put on some mascara as well.

Fill in your eyebrows and put on your false eyelashes.

Finally, put on some mascara on your lower lashes if you like. I leave this step to the last to minimize mascara meltdown.

I applied the peachy-orange blush to the apple of my cheeks and blended upwards towards my temple a bit, and put on the gold lipgloss last.

Hope you enjoyed my summery tutorial! :)
