Bold Autumn Sunset Everyday Eye Makeup Tutorial for Cool Skin Tones

 After watching all the beautiful fall makeup tutorials, I decided to adapt them to the bold colors that look best on my cool skin tone, and I love how this one turned out. It reminds me of an autumn sunset, and it's the perfect everyday look to go with the bold color clothes I wear and my skin. Come see the video tutorial and exactly how I created this look using the Urban Decay Full Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette.

I love to watch/listen to Youtube makeup tutorials when I get ready in the morning. Most of them use brown-based/warm eye shadow colors that look terrible on me. I wish I could wear those colors, but I know it won’t flatter my skin.

Lately I’ve been trying to take the colors they use and adapt the look with similar colors that look good on me. When I recently saw this makeup tutorial by Dominique Sachse, I was in love, and decided I had to create a version that would look great on my coloring. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how it turned out!! I love it so much I’ve been doing it every day for 3 weeks, so I decided I needed to create a tutorial for you.

I used the Urban Decay Full Spectrum palette. I got it around Christmas last year, but I was so intimidated by the bold colors that I stuck it in a drawer. I had no idea what to do with it. It looked like clown makeup. Now I’m inspired to try more combinations!

Surprisingly, I was able to find the Full Spectrum palette here, but this is clearance shopping, folks, so once it’s gone, it’s gone for F-O-R-E-V-E-R. I also found this similar palette for less (though it has fewer colors), and some individual pots. Purple here, and the coral color here. Though honestly, for the price of the two pots you could get the whole palette, so that is the better option in my opinion.

This color looks very similar to Edgy, but I haven’t tried it, so I can’t be sure.

Edgy is here.

Seashell is here.

Navy waterline pencil Push

White liner

Eyelash primer



Purple eyeliner

How do you feel about the colors in this palette? Do they look like clown makeup to you? Is this a look you would try?

  1. I can’t wait to watch the tutorial you referenced. I ordered the Full Spectrum palette – I’ve been eyeing those yummy colors! I wish I could get the orange sweater, but since I’m losing weight I don’t want to invest in cashmere. I’ve done a half decent search, but I couldn’t find anything that would resemble it so far. Thanks for all of the links! This is F*U*N. Now it’s back to work for me. Thanks for the enjoyable break!

  2. Judith I hope you love the palette! I’m determined to create more great looks with this, and now you can follow along! Congrats on your weight loss! I can understand not wanting to invest in nicer clothes during your journey. Maybe try Poshmark or ebay for your in between sizes? You can get some nice nice items for cheap. I’m glad to give you a fun break today. 🙂 This has gotten fun for me too. Thanks for following along.

I haven’t shopped at either site much and I’d love to see if there is something good there for me! I’ll definitely checking it out. Again, thanks for your tutorial and clothing site suggestions. I’m loving this!!!

  4. Thanks Judith! I’m not comfortable in front of the camera, but I’m trying. I love Poshmark and ebay, especially when I want to try a style out before investing in a nicer version. Also for finding that thing I can’t find in stores. Have fun!
