I’ve been watching a lot of YouTube makeup tutorials lately and one of my new favourite Beauty Guru’s I have come across is Tina Halada. She recently posted a ‘Prom Makeup Tutorial’ and although I’m way past going to prom, the look was stunning and can easily be worn on a night out. So I decided to give it a go and was pretty happy with the turnout!

Why not give it a go?
Step 1: Using any concealer or eye shadow primer, prime the base of your eyelids.
Step 2: Using a light-medium brown (I used warm tones for this look), start working the eye shadow into the crease using windshield wiper and circular motions.
Step 3: Using a slightly darker brown, go over the crease in the same place as you placed the first colour.
Step 4: This is the final eye shadow colour you’ll need for this look. Taking a deep brown, darker than the previous colour, place the shadow into the lower part of the crease. Don’t blend this shadow as high as you blended the first two as the look will start to get messy. The dark colour makes the cut-crease more noticeable and will deepen up the look.
Step 5: Time to cut the crease. Using a concealer and any flat brush or brush of your choice, start to carve out where your crease is, to about half way across your lid. If you have hooded eyes, I recommend drawing above the crease, so that it’s noticeable when you open your eyes. This took some getting used to for me and I still never get them even, but the result is still great.
Step 6: One you’ve carved out your crease, set the concealer with any translucent or white powder/eye shadow.
Step 7: Using any glitter product of your choice apply glitter to the area you carved out with concealer. I used glitter glue and then any gold glitter I could find.
Step 8: using the darker browns from earlier, try to blend out the outer corner of the eye into the glitter, but make sure not to go too far in. Having glitter on the lid means you won’t get a perfect blend from inner to outer corner, but that’s the purpose of the look.
Step 9: Apply false lashes (if you want to), add black eyeliner to the water line and take the browns on the lower lash line.
Step 10: Because I didn’t apply false lashes, I took some liquid eyeliner and tight lined the top of my lid slightly.
