Hey beauty fans! Today we are going to show you how to get another Fall inspired eyeshadow look, so grab your favorite drink, settle in, and let’s talk beauty!

Today’s combo was inspired by the burgundies and chocolaty red browns that we see during the holiday season! This look was created using a combo of Makeup Geek, Colourpop (CP), and MAC shadows! We used the shades: Peach Smoothie- a light peachy-beige matte, Soft Brown(MAC)- a warm mid-tone matte brown, Cocoa Bear- a reddish brown matte, Bitten- a deep maroon red matte, Frappe- a medium maple brown with a demi-matte finish, Grandstand- a foiled medium rose gold with slight taupe undertones, and Lovey(CP) –a light gold with flecks of multi- dimensional glitter to add some sparkle!

This look is a halo eye meaning we are putting darker shades in both the inner and outer corner. This look gives the appearance of a really round eye shape. You can still use the color combo we are using, but just do the darker shades in the outer corner instead of the inner corner if you want a more cat eye/almond shaped look.

How to achieve the look:

Step 1 Apply Eyeshadow Primer

Any eyeshadow primer will do, but we always go with our tried and true: MAC Prolongwear Paint Pots, Too Faced Shadow Insurance, and Urban Decay Primer Potion! As always make sure to apply a primer before applying eyeshadow otherwise your eyeshadow will not stay put and you will end up with it underneath your eyes, keep it cute beauty fans!

Step 2 Apply Peach Smoothie

Using a MAC 224 or Sigma E40, swirl your brush in Peach Smoothie and tap off the excess. Then apply from the lower to upper crease in windshield wiper and circular motions, but do not bring the color up to the brow bone!

Step 3 Apply Soft Brown

Using a MAC 224 or Sigma E40, swirl your brush in Soft Brown and tap off the excess. Then apply underneath the Peach Smoothie in windshield wiper and circular motions.

Step 4 Apply Cocoa Bear

Using a Sigma E25 or a MAC 217 brush, swirl your brush in Cocoa Bear and tap off the excess, then apply to the crease below soft brown in windshield wiper and circular motions going from outer to inner corner. Then go back over it with a clean blending brush to make sure there are no harsh lines. Our favorite brush to use for this is the Morphe M505 brush.

Step 5 Apply Bitten

Using a Morphe M433 brush, swirl your brush in Bitten and tap off the excess. Apply the color on the outer corner first patting then blending out in circular motions (bring it slightly in towards the center of the eye) then blend into the lower crease right under Cocoa Bear using a Sigma E 25. Then taking a MAC 219 or any other pencil brush, apply Bitten on the inner ¼ of the eye. Then taking the E 25 or 217 brush blend it inwards toward the center of the eye so we don’t have a harsh line, we want it blown out and diffused. Then go back over the crease ONLY with a clean blending brush making sure there are no harsh lines. This is the actual halo part of the look. It can be a little difficult at first to master, but just practice and you’ll get it! Tip: Just make sure you do not put Bitten on the very center of your eyelid, we have other colors going there instead!

Step 6 Apply Cocoa Bear on the Center of the Eyelid

Using a MAC 242 or Sigma E55 brush, pack Cocoa Bear on the center of the lid only! Then go back in with your clean blending brush and buff out the crease where the lid color meets the crease colors. Then take your E25 or 217 brush and blend the edges of the Cocoa Bear where it meets Bitten on the eyelid.

Step 7 Apply Lovely

Using your finger, pat, do not swipe, the Lovely on the center of the eyelid over top the Cocoa Bear. This product works best using your fingers to apply, but if you can’t stand using your fingers then a MAC 242 or any other small synthetic brush will work. Then taking your pencil brush apply a little more Bitten to the inner and outer corner of the eyelid and then blend out with your E25 or 217.

Step 8 Smoke Out Lower Lash Line

Using a pencil brush, swirl your brush in Coca Bear, tap off the excess, then run it back and forth on your lower lash line from outer to inner corner. After that dip your MAC 217 or Sigma E25 into Frappe and go over the Cocoa Bear blending it out. We don’t want a harsh line we want it to look diffused and blown out. If you want the lower lash line darker add more Cocoa Bear and less Frappe, but make sure to still blend it out. We then added just a touch of Grandstand over top of the other two for a little more oomph using a clean pencil brush!

Step 9 Mascara or Falsies

Apply your favorite pair of false eyelashes to complete the look, or just mascara your naturals!

We did not use eyeliner for this look since it is a halo eye. If you use eyeliner, it will cover up the pretty sparkles we have in the center of the eyelid. The eyeliner will give it a more cat eye feel than a halo look.
