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.

 

Stay beautiful!

Purple Halo Eye Tutorial

Hello my lovelies!

PurpleHaloEye

 

Today, I have created for you an all purple/pink halo eye makeup. I recently saw a few instagram posts on this type of eye look, and decided to create a “beginner’s” version for all of you. This look is, once again, very easy to achieve, and can be used with ANY color range, even different color combinations like brown and gold.

Let’s get started:

PurpleHaloPalette

 

  1. As always, prime your eyelids and set with shade number one using a dense packing brush. Keep in mind throughout this tutorial that halo eyes involve A LOT of layering, so be patient!
  2. With a fluffy brush, place shade two in the transition area only.
  3. with a small packing brush, take shade number three and place carefully on the outer corner of the eye, as well as the inner third of the eye, but NOT in the tear duct. Lightly start blending each side out, creating a connecting arc with both sides in the crease. Be sure to keep the middle of the eyelid completely bare.
  4. Layer the purple shadow with the same method above at least three times or more, in order to achieve the most similar results to mine.
  5. For maximum pigment and shine, wet a medium lid packing brush with any spray (I prefer MAC Fix+), and generously coat the brush in shade four. Begin packing this on the middle of the eyelid, with as many layers as you would like.
  6. Once the Shimmer shadow has dried onto the lid, take your previous small packing brush, and lightly blend out the edges of the middle shadow, so that it melds with the dark purple.
  7. For the lower lashline, run shade two along the whole lashline. With a small packing brush, press shade three close to the roots of the lashes, about 2/3 of the way.
  8. With a pencil brush, put shade five onto the inner corner and the tear duct.
  9. Line the waterline with either a nude, white, or black liner (optional).
  10. Apply mascara to the tops and bottoms of the lashes, add falsies if you so choose.

 

And there you have it, one pristine purple halo eye. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it helps me out SO much. Also don’t forget to have a fantabulous weekend.

Stay Beautiful!
