Radiate elegance with this golden halo eyes look

Who says neutral eye shadows aren’t exciting enough for a night out? This golden halo eye style offers just the right amount of flash for the club or cocktail hour. All it takes is a touch of bronze shadow down the center of your lids for a timeless charm that's sure to turn heads. A few bats of your false eyelashes and you'll be watching the paramours line up to ask if it hurt when you fell from heaven.
Too much shimmery eye shadow can look overdone on its own,i which is why this look frames it with matte brown shadows. A touch of highlighter on your cheeks mirrors the bronze on your lids while adding extra dimension to your contouring. To keep the look feeling balanced and fresh, use neutral shades of lipstick and lip gloss that will still make your pout look oh so sumptuous.

Instructions
1. With your fingertips, massage primer into your face.
2. With a flat eye shadow brush, apply “Soft Ochre” or an eye shadow primer across your eyelid and up to your brow bone.
3. With a fluffy eye shadow brush, sweep “Sorrel” or a matte, light tan shadow onto the outside of your eyelid and crease.
4. Use the same brush to sweep “Conquer” or a matte, light brown shadow on top of the shadow you applied in step 3.
5. Use a small, flat eye shadow brush to tap “Button” or a matte brown shadow to your upper lash line near the outside of your lid. Apply the shadow to your crease near the inside of your lid.
6. Use the same brush to apply “Tone” or a matte, dark brown shadow on top of the shadow you applied in step 5.
7. Use the same brush to apply “Noir” or a matte black shadow on top of the shadow you applied in step 6.
8. With a flat shadow brush, load “Bronze” or a shimmery gold shadow onto the middle of your lid.
9. Apply false eyelashes. Allow the glue to dry.
10. Apply foundation. For fuller coverage, apply the product across your face with short, sweeping motions.
11. Apply concealer that's a shade lighter than your foundation underneath your eyes in a triangle shape. Put a small amount of concealer on your chin, above your Cupid’s bow, down your nose and between your eyebrows. Blend it in by dabbing it with the tapered end of a damp blending sponge.
12. Apply a few lines of concealer that's a shade darker than your foundation underneath your cheekbones. Blend it in by dabbing it with the tapered end of a damp blending sponge.
13. With the tapered end of a blending sponge, dab Kylie Cosmetics Loose Setting Powder onto your cheeks and the middle of your forehead.
14. Load Cover FX Matte Setting Powder onto the end of the blending sponge. Starting from the back of your jaw, pull the sponge across your jawline and underneath your bottom lip. Repeat for the other side.
15. Sweep bronzer underneath your cheekbones, then dab it up around your temples.
16. With a powder brush, blend in the powder from steps 13 and 14 until you achieve a natural glow.
17. Sweep and dab blush onto the apples of your cheeks.
18. Shape and fill in your brows as desired. One option is to shape your brows with a spoolie, then line and fill them in with brow powder.
19. With an eye shadow detail brush, sweep “Button” or a matte brown shadow along your lower lash line. Use the same brush to apply “Tone” or a matte, dark brown shadow to the outside of your lower lash line.
20. Apply black gel eyeliner to your lower waterline.
21. With a detail brush, dab “Gesso” or a matte ivory shadow to the inner corners of your eyes.
22. Holding the bottle 6 inches away, spray setting spray across your face.
23. Use a highlighter brush to sweep highlighter across the tops of your cheeks.
24. Apply “Rum Punch” or a neutral lipstick. Top with “Buttercream” or a matching lip gloss. With that, your golden halo eyes look is complete!
