Four Halo Eye Looks Using Makeup Geek Matrix System Eyeshadows

 

 

I recently purchased the Makeup Geek Matrix System Mega Set of eyeshadows, containing the Colour Matrix Palette and the Neutral Matrix Palette.  I’ve been enjoying playing with the eyeshadows so much and coming up with lots of different looks.

I came up with four different eye looks using the Halo (or highlighted effect) eye technique.  For this eyeshadow style, you have a light shade on the middle part of the lid and a darker shade in the inner and outer lid sections (you can get more tips on how to create this eyeshadow style here).  I don’t wear this eyeshadow style much, so it was fun to experiment with different colour combinations.

I have given details on how to re-create each combination below, along with suggestions for cheek and lip products to go with each look.

If you would like some look ideas using particular shades or certain types of looks, let me know! I’m really enjoying playing about with these eyeshadows, so stay tuned for more combination ideas!

I’m planning a post on the Makeup Geek eyeshadows, including photos and swatches, so keep an eye out for that soon!

Natasha Denona Love Eyeshadow Palette

My husband said he would treat me to a new eyeshadow palette as a little pick-me-up and I chose the Natasha Denona Love Palette.  I’ve never had anything from Natasha Denona and I thought the mix of pink, red, purple, gold and silver shades looked beautiful in this palette.

I have been loving using this palette and feel so inspired every time I pick it up.  The range of shades, finishes and tones means I can use it to create any type of look, from everyday to colourful or smokey.  I find the palette layout extremely helpful too for coming up with eyeshadow combinations.

Whilst the palette is by no means cheap (£60), it costs significantly less than Natasha Denona’s larger palettes, so I thought this might be a fun way to try her products.  It’s so wonderful to have a little bit of luxury and it feels like such a lovely treat whenever I pick it up to use.

I recently posted this look on Instagram where I used Rose Gold, a beautiful shade from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette (you can see my post on the palette here).  I combined Rose Gold with other brown shades from the palette and some black liner to create this slightly smokey look.

Tarte Chrome Paint Shadow Pots

I’ve been using the Tarte Chrome Paint Shadow Pots (Unleashed and Frose) for some time now and think they are amazing for creating a beautiful but quick eyeshadow look.  I found myself reaching for them again and again when I had my second child, as I was able to create an eyeshadow look so quickly when time to get myself ready was (and still is!) very tight.  They continue to be a go-to-product for me, particularly when I need something quick to use but still want to add a little extra something to my eyes.

The Tarte Chrome Paint Shadow Pots have the most amazing metallic, shimmery and intense sheen when applied to the lids.  They can be used on their own with a quick sweep of mascara, or combined with other eyeshadow colours if you have more time to spare.  I highly recommend these pots if you want a high shine, metallic and beautiful look in minimal time!

Purple and Coral (Using Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really love the combination of purple and coral, either in an eyeshadow combination or on the eyes and lips.  For this look, I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette (you can see my post on the palette here) to create a bronze and purple eye.  I applied Too Faced Peach Kiss Moisture Matte Long Wear Lipstick in Peach Beach (you can see my post on these lipsticks here) to give a peach-coral finish to the lips.

The Morphe Live in Color Artistry Palette was one of my top products from 2019 and a palette I continue to reach for in 2020 (you can read more about this palette here).  I find the colour selection so inspiring and it really encourages me to try out different eyeshadow combinations whenever I use it.

I found this look from last year in my look folders and thought it would be a fun one to post.  I remember I wanted to try something very bright and came up with this multi-coloured look with a cut crease and a halo effect on the eyes.

FOTD: Aquamarine and Purple (Using Morphe Live in Color Artistry Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love the shimmery aqua tone of Make Magic in the Morphe Live in Color Artistry Palette (you can read more about this palette here) and thought it would look beautiful on the lids alongside Heart and Harmony.  I really love how the shades blended together in this look.  I used Heart (a matte pink) in the crease and it created a blue-ish shade where the edges met Make Magic.  This step really added extra dimension to the look.
