Burgundy and Gold Halo Eye

Burgundy and Gold Halo Eye

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog! Today I felt like doing a halo eye look. I’m not the best, but I’m not too shabby lol. I went with a burgundy / plum look and gold. I love the way these colors contrast and make each other pop. Today when I’m doing this tutorial, it’s a chilled out Sunday relaxing and watching Christmas movies with my family. For today’s eye shadow, I’m using all Ulta Beauty shadows I got in one of their big kits they do every year. These shades are really pigmented and definitely worth the money. They aren’t expensive either so that’s a bonus! Let’s do this thing, lol!

Starting out today’s makeup look, instead of using an eyeshadow primer, I used my foundation and set it with ‘Lively'. I honestly wasn’t sure what I wanted to do today. I went in the crease with the shade ‘Gentle’, a light warm Carmel brown, and started building up some of the shadows. Going all the way from outer to inner corner. To darken the look up even more, I went in with the shade ‘Milk Chocolate’. It’s the exact color it says it is, lol. On the lid I used a flat shader brush and elf mist and set setting spray with the shade ‘Orchid'. This color is a burgundy / plum satin color with a fine pink shimmer. I packed the color on the lid and took a clean natural fiber blending brush to soften edges of the shadow. For the pop of gold on the lid, I took the color ‘Precious on my finger and patted it in the center. These colors are so complimentary to each other, I’m going to be using these Ulta eye shadows so much more!
That's it for today’s makeup tutorial! I love this one a lot. If you liked it, let me know in the comments down below! Thank you so much for checking out this tutorial.

Wet n Wild Comfort Zone

Hey guys! I’ve decided to try something new this week! I want to teach myself how to do a halo eye. I’ve attempted it once and it did not go well. So I’ve decided to try it again until I get it right. This time using one of my all-time favorite drugstore eye shadow palettes Wet n Wild’s Comfort Zone. This palette has eight shades, all of them are silky textured and very pigmented! That’s one thing I love about their eye shadows, they’re so good! Their price is almost unbeatable with that kind of quality! Not to mention, every shade in this palette is a dupe for a high-end shadow!

Wet n Wild Comfort ZoneStarting with my eyes as normal, because I always have to clean up a mess. I’m too sloppy and have too much fun playing in eye shadow that it ends up everywhere. I’m capable of doing it without making a mess, but what’s the fun in that? So I’m going to start of with my Hard Candy eye shadow primer all over my lids and pack on the left eyelid color in the center of my eye. This shade is a pinky copper satin shade that blends beautifully! On the inner and outer corners and through the crease I’m going to put the right definer shade, it’s a red brown with a blue reflect. That’s one of my favorite colors in the palette! For the browser bone I’m using Brulee, which is a single Wet N Wild shadow that’s a creamy nude. I’m pretty much going back and forth blending until the crease is really hazy and blended to the heavens! Lol. After that I go back in and touch up the halo until I thought it looked right. But then I realized it didn’t look quite how I wanted it! So I decided to add a little of the primer to the very center area and pack on some of the right brown bone color, which is a silvery satin shade with the slightest pink undertone. Then I slightly blended it out some until it looked as good as I could get it.

So next I would continue on with my face makeup which I go over and explain in my Drugstore Foundation Routine . On my bottom lash line I would have gone in with the right definer shade, the red brown shade and I'd bring it all the way under and into the inner corner. For my lip color, I’m using J Cat’s kiss proof liquid lipstick in Champagne Buzz a lot lately! It’s such a thin, pigmented, smooth texture. I love it and it smells like cinnamon, kind of, but it also almost smells like a cinnamon vodka. Which I not mad at!

Today I wasn't able to finish my face makeup due to general life things that happen. I hope you guys enjoyed the finished look! I know it isn’t the best, but I’m really loving this look. It almost has a vampy look I’m really digging! If you guys have any tips on how I could change what I’m doing to improve the look, hit up the comment section and let me know. Thank you so much for taking time to read this post, if you enjoyed it feel free to share it with your friends. I’m always open to advice and constructive criticism!
