A Soft Lilac Halo Eye Tutorial


Hi everyone! How are you all today?

Today I actually attempted a halo eye without creating the harsh edges that you see in quite a few halo eye looks. In comparison, I think mine was quite subtle and ideal for a pretty everyday Spring look.

As a base shade, I used the Nars Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Desdemona, which is a beautiful duochrome Purple Brown. It’s such a pretty shade. I applied this with a dampened flat synthetic eyeshadow brush. I then used a soft bristle brush to blend out the edges, adding the same eyeshadow to blend out those edges.

On a dry natural bristles eyeshadow brush, I then packed on a light layer of the shade Persephone, which is a pretty lilac shade. I applied this directly over Desdemona, softening the edges once again.

On a finger, I then packed a small amount of the shade Pool Shark onto the centre of the lid. This reflected slightly different to the lilac and purple shades, crating a softer halo eye, which was quite pretty.

To finish off the eyes, I drew a thin line of liquid liner using Models Own’s i-Definer Liquid Liner and gave my lashes some length and definition using the Rimmel Volume Shake Mascara, which I am still loving for a more natural look.

I did team up the eyes with a dark mauve lip, mixing Smashbox’s Be Legendary Lipstick in Stylist with Bare Minerals Gen Nude Butter Cream Lipgloss in Must Have.

Have you guys got any ideas for tutorials that you would like to see throughout the Summer?

Have a lovely day, and take care.
