Tutorial: Chestnut/Pink Halo Eyes/Lip

Hi, guys! I hope you all are well and have had a good 2018 so far! I’ve been really inspired the last couple of weeks to do this look. I received Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita as an early Christmas gift and I’ve worn it pretty much every day since receiving it. I was wearing it the day my Play! by Sephora box arrived. In the box, I received the most vibrant magenta lipstick from Make Up For Ever. I immediately wanted to put it on. So I put it on the center of the lips just to see how it looked and actually fell in love with the combo! Ever since then I’ve wanted to do this look of matching halo eyes/lip. I was going to do it for NYE (still think this look would be awesome for parties!) but I was a bit under the weather so I waited till now to do it. I have to say I really love the look! It might not be for everyone but I’ll definitely rock this lip/look again. I hope you guys like it as much as I do!



Step one: Prime the lids and skin. Set with a loose powder.

Step two: Apply a matte taupe/brown into the crease and blend well. Do not go up to the brow bone. Apply a matte brown to the inner and outer corner. Avoid placing shadow in the middle of the lid, but don’t worry if you accidentally do.


Step three: Apply a matte brown based red to the outer and inner corner, over the brown. Blend well and avoid the center of the lid. I blended two colors together to create a similar shade to Lolita, but they have a Lolita eyeshadow you could use instead.


Step four: Apply concealer to the middle of the lid. Blend well, keep isolated to the center of the lid.


Step five: Apply a matte magenta eyeshadow over the concealer.


Step six: Blend well. Make sure the pink and the chestnut are blended together at the edges. Blend the crease well. Clean up any eyeshadow fall out.


Step seven: Apply black eyeliner and black mascara. Also, repeate the eyeshadows on the lower lash line, blend outward.



Step one: Apply Lolita (a chestnut rose Everlasting Liquid Lipstick by Kat Von D) to the lips. Overline if desired (I did.).



Step two: Let dry. Apply C207 to the middle of the lips (a fuchsia pink Artist Rouge Lipstick by Make Up For Ever.).


Step three: Blend the two together at the edges, go over the Lolita at the edges if necessary. IMG_2772

  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( https://www.instagram.com/tayo_home/ ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Keep up the good work on your blog.
