Hi, Loves! I did this makeup look a couple days ago and I got a comment from a coworker on it. She said, “I LOVE your halo eyeshadow! I always want to do it, but I feel like I’m too fair skinned for that dark of a shadow and I can never get the middle blended right.” So I figured if one of my coworkers felt intimidated by a halo eye, chances are some of you do too. So I wanted to give you guys a step by step on how I achieved this simple halo eye. Let’s go.
Okay, so I always like to start with brows. I used ABH Dipbrow Pomade in the shade medium brown, then used Gimme Brow from Benefit as Brow Gel. Next, I used Tarte Shape Tape Concealer in Fair to prime the eyes. I set my eyes with Wet’N’Wild single shadow in Creme Brûlée. Then I grabbed my Makeupgeek x Mannymua Palette. I’m sorry this was limited edition and it’s sold out now, but I linked it so you can get similar shadows. Any shades that contrast will work. First, I went in with Frappe in the crease. (Bet you couldn’t have guessed that.) Next, I grabbed a shader brush, one that wasn’t too small so I could still kind of blend a little bit, but also not so big that I couldn’t put the product where I wanted it. I went into Aphrodite, putting that on the inner and outer corners of my eyes, slightly blending all the edges of it, including slightly into the crease. I went back in with Frappe to ensure there was no harsh lines. I cleaned up my inner corner of my eye sockets very carefully, so I didn’t take away any shadow I didn’t want to, but I wanted to brighten that area up. For that I used the same Tarte Shape Tape Concealer that I used for my face. Then I went over the Frappe again to ensure blending. Then I went in with Artemis on a shader brush in the center of my lids, making sure to blend it into the Aphrodite I just laid down. I used my finger and intensify the center of the halo. Then I went back and forth between the brush I used for Aphrodite and the brush I used for Artemis, blending until I was pleased. Then I went over Frappe one more time, but to make sure everything is blended and no color was lost in all that blending between the darker and lighter shades. I took a small, flat edges brush and stamped some Aphrodite along my lower lash line, very close to the lashes. It’s okay if it’s a harsh line of dark at first because then I take a pencil brush and blend that Aphrodite out with some Frappe. Then I highlighted my brow bone and inner corner with Marshmallow from my ABH Sugar Glow Kit. Next I lined my waterline with MUFE Aqua XL Eye Pencil. I curled my lashes and applied my Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara. Then I grabbed my TF Cocoa Contour Kit. I contoured using Medium Cocoa and bronzed using Dark Cocoa. For blush, I used my Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in the shade Paaarty! ( which I would’ve linked but it was LE for Sephora’s Birthday Gift a couple years ago) I used my ABH Sugar Glow Kit to highlight. I mixed Marshmallow and Butterscotch. I love the way those look together.
And that’s how I easily did this halo eye! Did this help any of you guys that struggle to do this kind of look? I hope it did! I get intimidated by certain makeup trends myself and I wish someone could teach me! Thank you guys so much for reading and hanging out with me today. Y’all are the best! I’ll see you soon! 😘
Let’s be friends!
