Take neutral to the next level with this brown glittery halo eye

Who doesn't love a neutral eye look? There's just something about bronze, brown and beige tones that always look classy and chic. But from time to time, neutral eye shadow can start feeling a bit dull. If you want to change up your style but stay firmly within neutral territory, this is the look for you.
By switching up your shadow placement and experimenting with texture, you can make neutrals fun again. A halo treatment makes your eyes appear bigger and brighter, and adding some glitter can take this look to the next level. If you thought neutral eye shadow styles were boring, this tutorial will prove you wrong!

Instructions
1. Prep your skin with a hydrating moisturizer.
2. Apply primer to your whole face with your fingers.
3. Fill in your eyebrows using a neutral-toned pencil.
4. Prep your eyelids for shadow using a primer.
5. Take a matte tan eye shadow (we used "Burnt Orange" from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette), and work into the crease using a fluffy brush.
6. Deepen the crease using a darker warm brown eye shadow (we used "Rustic" from the same Anastasia palette).
7. Use a deep chocolate brown (we used "Cyprus Umber" from the same Anastasia palette) to deepen the outer and inner corners of the crease.
8. Take a shimmery taupe pressed pigment, and apply using a flat brush to the center of your eyelid.
9. Apply a glittery gold pressed pigment over the top of the taupe shimmer to add an extra dimension.
10. Dab a small amount of eyelash glue on top of these two pigments, and press loose bronzer glitter over the area.
11. Use a buffing brush to apply a full coverage foundation to your skin. Blend in with a damp sponge.
12. Highlight your under-eyes with a concealer, and blend with the same sponge.
13. Set this concealer using loose powder.
