We’re lucky here in the Southwest to experience cotton-candy sunsets filled with rich, jewel-toned colors blended perfectly into each other like melted ice cream. Breathtaking doesn’t even begin to describe Southwest sunsets. We have noticed that we tend to pick our makeup based on those gorgeous sunset colors. Below you can find a palette of makeup colors and products that are reminiscent of southwest sunsets—because the only way to replicate it is on by wearing it.

This shimmer pink guava color is the perfect mixture of light pink and guava to remind us of the tangerine sunsets that take place each evening here in the stunning southwest. One swipe of this and you’ll have a sunset-ready pout. Available at NARS, $26.

This dusty taupe color will give your peepers a touch of the southwest sunset look. With rich, deep color like taupe moving across our evening skies, you’ll feel just as gorgeous as the sunset. Available at Urban Decay, $18.
