I don’t know about you, but I’m in the mood for a little romance lately. I’ve been extremely happy and feeling fun recently, and I wanted to create something to show that! I’ve come up with the perfect look for all future date nights or romantic endeavours. This red halo eye is absolutely gorgeous, and it’s all using the Modern Renaissance palette! Let’s get our love on…
First off, I worked in my foundation with a buffing brush and done my brows to shape my eye area. I left it here before doing on to my eyeshadow, but once that had finished I completed the rest of my face. I used my trustee Wake Me Up concealer, then the Collection powder to set my face. To contour, of course, I used Hoola Bronzer and a bit of Rockateur on my cheeks. For highlight I used my Makeup Revolution highlighter in Golden Lights, with a tiny bit of Opal from the Alchemist Palette. On my lips I used my trustee Candy K by Kylie Cosmetics.
Here’s how I done the eye look:
- Set the eyes with translucent powder to prevent creasing
- Take Tempera all over the eye area to help with blending
- Blend Golden Ochre through the crease for your transition shade
- To start on the halo eye itself, take a small amount of Raw Sienna on the outer and inner corners of the eyelid
- Blend this out to be seamless; it doesn’t matter how messy it is as the more dramatic the better
- To start introducing the red, take small amounts of Red Ochre on top of Raw Sienna and blend. Build the colour slowly! You can always add, but never take away.
- Keep the colours separate for the moment, don’t connect them in the crease just yet
- Be particularly patient when blending the inner corner. It’s a small space to work with, but small up and down movements will get you there in the end
- To deepen the outer corner only, take a small amount of Cyprus Umber and blend it in to Red Ochre
- To get the red tones more prominent, go in with a bit more Red Ochre
- Continue to work on the outer and inner corner until you’re happy with the intensity
- Once you’re happy, slowly drag the colours together through the crease with any left over product you have on your brush
- For the centre of the eye, use a mixture of Primavera & Opal from the Alchemist Palette
- For the bottom lash line, take Cyprus Umber to the very lash line
- Smoke it out using Red Ochre while blending the outer corner with your lid shadow
- Finish my adding your favourite pair of lashes; I used Lana by Huda Beauty
- Highlight your inner corner and brow bone using Opal
I’m absolutely in love with this look. I apologise if this isn’t completely clear, but my wording in writing can be terrible sometimes. I’d love if you tried this out, and tagged me in photos or posts of your end result! I love the simplicity of one palette only looks, they’re perfect for travelling. I promise to use something other than Modern Renaissance next time too! Let me know what you think of this look in the comments below, and I’d love to hear any requests you may have!
