Tropi-coral Color #1: Tequila Sunrise

After reviewing the Bite Beauty lipsticks, they really got me inspired to try some brightly colored looks. Since it’s summer, I decided to dub them “Tropi-coral Color” (Ehh, see what I did there?) and make a few that can be easily replicated. So without further ado, let’s dive into this look, inspired by a Tequila Sunrise! P.S.- Here’s the link to make one : Tequila Sunrise. Enjoy! 😉

This look consists of a gradient yellow, orange, and red eyeshadow look with dark brown eyeliner, some slight contouring and highlighting, and orange-coral lipstick. I’ve also done this look with red and orange lipsticks, so either are fine to use as well. All of the products used will be listed and linked below. Some of my products I used are limited edition and are unavailable, so I will be posting the dupes for them in the list.

To begin, use eyeshadow primer all over your eyelid, all the way up to your brow bone. Next, add a yellow eyeshadow to the inner portion of your eyelid, blending out to the middle. Take an orange eyeshadow, add it to the middle of your eyelid and blend with the edge of the yellow. Use a red eyeshadow, one that preferably has a slight orange tinge to it, and blend along your outer lid and into the edge of the orange. If you want to up the contrast, you can blend a darker red into your crease. Add a transitioning/highlighting shade to your brow bone, and blend it slightly with your other shadows; this will make the look softer. Finally, line your eyes with brown eyeliner or shadow, again depending on how soft you want the look to be; I went with brown shadow. Finish with mascara and tightline your eyes.

For the foundation part of this look, begin with a primer. Apply your favorite foundation and concealer, and set with powder. Using a warmer shade to coincide with the warmer eyeshadow, contour and highlight your cheekbones. Add a highlight to your cupids bow as well.

Lastly, apply your lipstick! I chose to use an orange lipstick with a hint of coral, but a bright red or orange works just fine. To amp up your lipstick, apply a golden shadow to the center of your lips; it will unify the look.


Voila! Tequila Sunrise is finished, and looking beautiful if I may say so myself. If you’re feeling slightly adventurous, give this look a try. It’s easy, and not too over the top.
