Golden Halo Eye Tutorial

Hello my lovelies!

 

YellowGoldHaloFace

 

It’s 1pm my time, and I’m sitting here finally drinking my morning coffee. Yeah, it’s been that kind of day so far. Today’s tutorial is on a look I wore to a nicer evening dinner with friends, but as always you can really wear this whenever you feel like it.

Unfortunately, I have to repeat myself once again in a separate blog post for all the people in the back, and this time I’m going to have to be a little meaner about it. I won’t lie to you, I really couldn’t care less what everyone thinks of the products I do or don’t use, because this is not your blog. I am not forcing any of you to look at my posts, and you have the ability to unfollow me if this is such a problem for you personally. If these borderline harassing emails continue, I will be forced to always moderate comments, and remove those of you who have been emailing me constantly about this. The behavior is completely inappropriate at this rate, and I’m not going to waste more time saying the same thing over and over. Consider this your warning.

Back to happiness, I’m sorry to those of you who are not the culprits of this mess, and are just incidentally along for the dramacoaster ride. That lecture is not meant for you, so please don’t worry and feel that it is aimed at every one of you.

 

Let’s get started:

Eyelids:

  1. Prime and set the lids with a bone colored shadow, or anything matching your skintone.
  2. Mixing “Lula” and “Isabel”, blend these throughout the crease and slightly onto the brow bone. The further toward the inner corner you blend these shadows, the more dramatic this look will become, which is exactly what I wanted.
  3. Pack “Violeta” on the inner and outer corners of the lid, blending out the edges away from the middle. If you’re messy like me, you can always use concealer to clean up the middle, so that the gold shade still pops. We don’t want any muddiness happening, or the shimmer looking dull.
  4. If this is looking pretty insane so far, relax, everything will work out. Halfway through, I almost thought about not posting this and starting over, because I looked like I had black eyes, but once I was finished, it came out great. Halo eyes require a lot of time and detail, so the key is a lot of patience.
  5. Wet a brush and pack “Marina” on the center of the eyelid. I prefer the look to have the shimmer packed all the way into the crease, but this is ultimately up to you.
  6. Use “Violeta” once again to blend out any harsh edges from “Marina”. WAIT UNTIL THE WET SHADOW HAS DRIED, or you will be spreading the shimmer everywhere and letting it dry that way.

Lower Lashline:

  1. Blend “Lula” and “Isabel” across the entire lower lashline to create a transition.
  2. Place “Marina” in the middle of the lashline to emulate what we have on the lids.

Other:

  1. Place “5th Ave” on the inner tear duct for a highlighted effect.
  2. Use a nude liner on the waterline. You can always use whatever color you want, but just know that a dark liner closes the eyes, and a light liner will open. This all just depends on your eye shape.
  3. Curl and coat your lashes, apply falsies if you’d prefer.

 

That’s all I have for you guys today. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it really helps me out. Also don’t forget to have a lovely summer Wednesday.

Subtle Gold Eye Tutorial

Hello my lovelies!

 

SubtleGoldEye

 

I hope you are all doing well today. I decided to create a softer everyday look that still incorporates some shimmer. While this may not look like anything super exciting, I was stopped by several people that night, asking how I achieved such a look. I think the biggest key factor to any shining eyelid is wetting your brush, which is exactly what I did here. As always, this look is very easy to recreate, and can be done using any colors of your choosing.

Let’s get started:

SubtleGoldEyepalette

 

  1. As per usual, prime your eyelids and set with shadow number one using a flat shader brush.
  2. On a large fluffy brush, place shadow number two into your crease and transition area. Blend out this color thoroughly, and layer to your preference each time to create a slightly darker appearance. Be careful not to make this too darkened up, as we are not trying to create an intense look.
  3. Now for the best part. Wet a medium sized packing brush, and coat the brush in shade number three. Generously pack onto the entire eyelid, adding as many layers as you would like.
  4. Allow the shimmer shadow to completely dry, then go back with your fluffy brush and blend out any harsh edges.
  5. With the same packing brush (dry this time), apply shadow number four to the middle of the eyelid only, this will create a slightly 3D effect.
  6. For the lower lashline, you can either leave it bare and apply a nude liner, or run shade number two along the roots of the lashes for a small amount of definition.
  7. On a pencil brush, mix shades five and six and apply to the inner corner for your highlight.
  8. Apply nude eyeliner and coat your lashes in mascara. Add falsies if you’d like.

 

And there you have it. A subtle and angelic everyday eye look. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it helps me out a lot. Also don’t forget to have a fantastic hump day.

Stay beautiful!

Graduation Yellow Gold Eye Tutorial

Hello my lovelies!

GradMOTD

Today I wanted to share with y’all my graduation look. I personally loved the way this looked on me. I paired this golden eye with an orange-red lipstick and bronzed skin, which really tied the whole look together.

Let’s get started:

GradOOTDpalette

  1. Prime your eyelids very well, and set all over with “Blonde”.
  2. Take “Stark” on a fluffy brush and distribute this throughout your upper crease. The close to your brown bone you blend this color, the more dramatic this look will appear.
  3. Mixing “Anaheim” and “Zone” on a smaller fluffy brush, blend this in your lower crease, as well as the outer and inner third of your eyelid just slightly.
  4. Wet a small packing brush, then dip into “1987” and pack at least two coats onto the entire lid.
  5. For the lower lashline, mix “Anaheim” and “Zone” again on a pencil brush, and blend a little over two thirds of the way in.
  6. Take any yellow eyeliner and line your waterline for an added pop of color (optional).
  7. Create a short and thick flick on the eyelid (optional).
  8. Curl and coat your lashes with any preferred mascara; add lashes if you wish.
  9. Highlight the inner corner with any soft, gold toned shadow (optional).

That’s all I have for you guys today. Remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it really helps me out. Also, don’t forget to have a wonderful end to the month of June.

Stay Beautiful!
