Halo For Beginners

Let’s start with the beginner-friendly tutorial, which is perfectly represented by makeup blogger Lupe Netro. She makes her eyes look subtle but still catchy and attention-drawing. Be patient, there is a lot of adding colors, blending back and forth, but the result is terrific.

Lupe teaches us that eye primers are essential for not transferring eyeshadows one on the other. The translucent powder is perfect for setting liquid products. She said that transitional shade should be neutral, orange one. It helps with blending darker shadows and creating a more in-depth look. This halo look requires a lot of blending moves back and forth.

Clean brush should be near you as it used to blend harsh edges and smooth the parts of your eyeshadow. To prevent blending eyeshadows near your eyebrows, Lupe suggests using brow highlighter right after transitional shade. When doing this look, you need to have one fluffy, blending and small flat brush.

Purple-Brown Smokey Eye

This video shows how you can have a perfect halo smokey eye look, which is ideal for Christmas holidays. Beauty blogger Jaclyn Hill is going to take us through her tutorial step by step.

Primer water is a great product to start and prepare your skin for makeup. It helps to blend in the foundation, and concealer underneath your eyes. Jaclyn said It’s like you are doing your everyday makeup routine. She suggests setting the concealer and foundation using the large brush. Always make sure there are no harsh lines left when doing your halo smokey eye makeup.

Matte eyeshadow should be reserved for the place right below eyebrows. You should fill in the center of the crease with glitter shade with a wet or dry brush. You will learn that creamy white eye pencil will make your eyes pop.

Berry Halo Eye Makeup

Berry makeup is always a good idea for holidays. It seems warm, soft while your eyes will pop out wherever you appear. Let’s see how you can do it with the tricks and help of blogger An Knook. She advises us to be patient and to build eyeshadows gradually from the brightest to darkest one.

An teaches us how it is essential to use the technique of going back and forth for applying bit darker shade on your crease and outer corner. Also, she adds that you need to apply more color for better effect.

Illusion foiled pigment should find its place on your central eyelid part. An recommends to do it with a wet brush. Soothe the lines between dark and bright lines with shimmery eyeshadow.

Blue eyeshadow requires an extra product for brightening your base. With small half circle movements, dark shade is applied. Blend all eyeshadows well with taping technique. Katie recommends using the brightest shade as transitional. She re-intensifies the first color by blending it again.

The trick to make a halo eye makeup quickly is to use micellar water and an earbud to remove the excess of the eyeshadow in the lid center. Then apply concealer from the first step. To defuse the edges of concealer, use the brush and the previous shadows.
