Spice Up Your Summer Nights With Sunset-Hued Eyeshadows

With summer's vibrant eyeshadow palette ranging from neon pink to tropical-water turquoise, bright eyes have definitely become de rigueur for the daring this season. But going bold doesn't mean you always have to commit to an in-your-face shade. Try channelling a sunset-inspired riff on the dramatic eye—think kicked up earth tones in varying intensities of orange, red, and coral. Thrill-seekers can take a cue from the look at Honor's fall '11 show and go for a vivid, orange crush (NARS makeup artist James Boehmer used a combination of blush shades to achieve the look), but those who want to evoke a more romantic feel can try a softer incarnation and sweep on an inspired mix of coral and rose. Pair the look with a nude lip for just the right amount of pop.
