Applying moisturizer to the face

1. Prepare your face

Always start a makeup routine by moisturizing your face.

Applying color corrector

Then color-correct any blemished areas on your face. Dab on your color-correcting makeup and blend it in with a small soft makeup brush.

Using a makeup sponge to apply foundation

Use a makeup sponge to press in your foundation.

Highlighting under the eyes

2. Highlight your under-eye area

Apply concealer to your under-eye area.

Where to apply highlighter

And use concealer to highlight your T-zone and your chin. Use a makeup sponge to blend in the concealer.

How to contour

3. Add contouring

Apply a cream contouring product to your cheekbones, the sides of your nose, and your forehead. Blend it out with a large brush on your cheeks and forehead, and a small brush on your nose.

Setting makeup with translucent powder

4. Set your makeup base

Apply translucent powder all over your face to set the base.

Applying color to the cheeks

5. Add color to your cheeks

Apply a bronze contour shade to your cheekbones and forehead, and a rose-colored contour shade on your cheeks.

Filling in brows

6. Define your brows

Fill in your eyebrows and use the curly end of the eyebrow pencil to brush your brows.

Applying a light pink shade of eyeshadow as a base

7. Rose gold halo eyeshadow look

Start with a light pink shade of eyeshadow on your upper eyelids. 

How todo halo eye makeup

Use a black kohl eye pencil to create a half-moon shape around your lower eyelids. Use a brush to smudge out the pencil. That will really intensify the halo effect.

Applying a burgundy shade in the crease

Apply a rich burgundy shade of eyeshadow over your black halo line, and blend it in with a brush. Continue adding color and blending until you get your desired intensity.

Applying concealer to the center of the eyelid

Apply concealer to the center of your lower eyelids below the crease.

Applying rose gold pink eyeshadow

Now, add rose-gold shimmery eyeshadow on top of the concealer, covering the area of your eyelid that is outlined by the half-moon. 

Smudging the edge of the rose gold eyeshadow

Smudge out the edges where the rose-gold eyeshadow meets the previously applied burgundy, so you have a smooth gradient of color.

Adding a green shimmery metallic halo

Add an extra pop of color by applying a green shimmery metallic eyeshadow to the crease of your eyelid.

Lining eyes with kohl

Finally, add black kohl eyeliner to your lower eyelid water line.

Smudging and blending eyeliner

Smudge and blend out the eyeliner.

Applying burgundy eyeshadow under the eye

Extend the burgundy eyeshadow to the area just under your eye, below the eyeliner.

I made the look even more dramatic with some false eyelashes and mascara.

Applying highlighter to the cheekbones

8. Finish with more highlighter

Use a jelly highlighter on your cheekbones. Tap it on with your fingertip.

Blending powder highlighter over the jelly

Then blend on a light powder highlighter over the jelly highlighter, and also down the center of your nose, your brow bone, the inner corners of your eyes, and the center of your lower eyelids.

Outlining and filling in lips with pink lipstick

9. Don’t forget your lips

Apply a beautiful deep pink lipstick to your lips, using the same shade to outline and fill in your lips.

Applying concealer to the center of lips

Then, to lighten your lips a bit and give them some dimension, tap on some concealer to the center of your lips and blend it in with your fingertip.
