Happy international women’s day! It’s an exciting post today because myself & Cassie from Cassixmakeup decided to do a collaboration! Such a perfect way to celebrate all the amazing women in the world!
I love Cassies’ writing, so if you haven’t checked out her blog already then I’d definitely recommend. She’s such a lovely person too!
Today I’m going to be re-creating her ‘Halo Eye Tutorial’. You can see her original post here!
She is also going to be re-creating one of my makeup looks on her blog, so definitely keep an eye for that too!
In her post, Cassie uses the Makeup Geek x MannyMUA Limited Edition palette. Since I don’t own that, I’m going to be using shadows from my own collection. So lets see how close I can get to the original look.
After completing my base using the Revolution Superfruit Extract Primer (£9.99) and the NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Foundation (£15). I used the ABH dipbrow pomade (£19) on my eyebrows, as Cassie did. I used the Collection Lasting Perfection (£4.19) all over my eyelids.
Next I went into the Morphe Bronzed Mocha Palette (£19). I used the cream shade labelled ‘1’ all over my eyelid to set the concealer. Once I had done that I used a fluffy blender brush to add the shade ‘2’ in my crease. I wasn’t too precise with this. Next I used a smaller eyeshadow brush to apply the darker shade, ‘3’, onto the outer and inner corners of my eye lid – as Cassie instructed! I then went back into ‘2’ to make sure there were no harsh edges or lines. Once I was happy with the blend, I dipped into my Makeup Revolution x Soph Highlighter palette (£8). I took the palest icy highlight and added it onto the centre of my eye with my finger. I then blended the edges with a clean brush. Next I went back over ‘2’ in my crease once more.
After adding Max Factor False Lash Epic Mascara (£11.99) and Maybelline Fit Me Concealer (£5.99) both under my eyes and to clean up on my inner corner, I added the shade labelled ‘3’ onto my lower lash line. And some more of the highlight onto my inner corner & brow bone.
I finished my face with the Rimmel x Kate Moss Sculpting Palette (£6.99) contour shade, Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso (£10) and the same highlight as I used on my eyes.
Finally I applied NYX Suede Matte Lipstick (£8) in the shade Rose The Day.
What do you think of the finished look?! I’m really happy with it! I think it looks quite similar to Cassie’s look even though I used a different palette. Of course the colours are a little different but I love the outcome. I don’t think I would have ever done this look if it wasn’t for this collab & that’s what these collabs are for!
