Smokey Black & Violet Halo Eyes 

I was inspired by makeup artist Linda Hallberg, yet again, to recreate this black and violet smokey halo eye look. This is not an exact replication of Linda’s makeup, just my own more wearable take on it!

EYES

  • primed my eyelids using the Wet N Wild Photo Focus eye primer
  • I used some Scotch tape to create a sharp winged effect with my eyeshadow.
  • From the Tarte Tarteist Pro eyeshadow palette, I used the shades  Whimsy and Bold as my transition shades. To blend these out, I used the Ulta eyeshadow in shade Camel.
  • On the putter corners of my eyes, I used the Ulta eyeshadow in shade Brownie and Smoked from the Tarteist Pro palette. I also used these shades on my bottom lashline.
  • On the center and inner portion of my lid, I applied a bronze shade from my Morphe 35O palette, but any bronze shade you have will work beautifully for this look!
  • I skipped out on eyeliner today and applied a pair of bold lashes instead. I used the Kiss Blooming lashes (sorry can’t remember the style!)
  • Lined my waterline with the L’Oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner

FACE

  • primed my face using the Trader Joe’s Nourish Antioxidant Serum  and Benefit’s Porefessional primer
  • For foundation, I used a new product from Wet N Wild- their new Photo Focus foundation in shade Golden Beige (this stuff is amazing, post coming soon)
  • For concealer, I used the Smashbox Studio Skin concealer in light/warm
  • I set my concealer with the RCMA No Color powder and the rest of my face with the Wet N Wild Photo Focus pressed powder in Tan Beige

BROWS & LIPS

  • And for lips, the star of the show, I applied the Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme in Covet (shade 19). The formula on this liquid lipstick is amazing! It did not apply streaky whatsoever and is very opaque. It dries completely Matte and is, in my opinion, very comfortable to wear.

MOTD: Cool Tones

It’s been a hot minute since I posted a makeup look, so I decided to go with something outside my comfort zone-cool tones. Whenever I think of “cool tones” I think MATTE, so I nixed highlighter completely and used just matte products.
