Today I’m back with another halo eye look and boy, oh boy am I happy with the way this turned out! It just shows that practice really is the key to improving your makeup skills. I’m very proud of this halo eye look as I’ve only done them a few times; I decided to take a bit longer than usual on my eye makeup today with blending and placement of the eyeshadows. So yeah, I’m pleased with the finished result!
I wanted to go for a really bold eye. Today’s inspo comes from an MUA I’ve always loved and I’m obsessed with the looks he posts on Instagram. @mmmmitchell is the makeup king! I can’t even begin to explain how talented he is. I looove how colourful he makes his eyeshadow looks, they’re so extra and just so out there! I wanted something bright like the makeup he does so went for this look. This eye makeup is so vibrant and colourful, it’s fab! I really want to try and start experimenting with more colour in my makeup looks. A brown smokey eye is pretty don’t get me wrong, and it’s a great go-to look but isn’t a pop of colour just waaaay more interesting?! Yes, yes it is.
Let me just say, this look took a hella’ lot of blending! Totally worth it though. I tried to pack on the colour more in this look and blend it altogether in teeny weeny circular motions, I find the shadows are more distinguished this way and are less likely to merge into a blob of colour.
For this look, I used the Magic Palette by Juvias Place , the Tarte Tartiest Pro Amazonian Clay Palette and the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette.
