I wanted to attempt to do a halo eye, and I know this is not the greatest halo eye out there but for a first timer, I think I did a really good job! I wasn’t planning on posting this (I don’t usually like to post twice a day haha) but I ended up really loving this look and will probably wear it when I get a chance. This seriously just motivates me to do more eyeshadow looks because I genuinely had so much fun creating this look!
*Side note: I need to invest in a better camera… taking pictures without natural light on my phone makes everything look so harsh and unflattering*
I prepped my eyes with my Maybelline Fit Me concealer (I don’t have any eyeshadow primers, but I think this works pretty good, especially if you’re someone who doesn’t do eyeshadow regularly) and set it with some pressed powder. Then I used Shell from my Covergirl Trunaked Nudes palette as my transition/base shade all over my lid. It’s a light cream, almost white, so I figured the colours would show up a bit better.
The flash in this picture washed out all the colours 😦 but I figured I’d add it anyways
So for the outer and inner corners of my eyes, I used NYX Nude Matte Shadow in Dance The Tides. This wasn’t as pigmented as I had hoped for it to be, so I had to really pack on the shadow. I tried my best to keep a prominent space in the middle empty for the halo. I also made sure to blend every so often to avoid harsh lines.
For the “halo”, I used the Loreal Infallible eyeshadow in Hourglass Beige. Suuuch a pretty golden/champagney colour and looked really nice with the matte brown.
I wanted to add some dimension, so I added my NYX Matte Bronzer in Medium in the crease to kind of deepen the look. I also used this in the lower lash line. This bronzer is crazy pigmented so I think it works perfectly as an eyeshadow alternative.
That’s it for the eyes. All other details are listed below:
- Foundation: Milani Conceal+Perfect foundation in 06 Sand Beige
- Highlight: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop
- Contour: NYX Matte Bronzer in Medium
- Lashes: Ardell 120 Demi
- Lips: Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Kae
Guys I literally came up with this look at like 10 at night and I regretted it because I wanted to wear it out but I had no where else to go. Oh well.
P.S. I guess that would make this a MOTN? Hahahahaha. I love myself.
