I wanted to challenge myself and see if I could do a halo style eye look without any brushes. The inspiration came from “What do women do when they forget they’re brushes when travelling?”
I’m going to start off by saying that I did take hygiene into consideration and I keep clean figures while doing this challenge.
My palette of choice for this is the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette. However, you can use the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette or Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette (they all have a blue, shimmery gold, and a medium brown).
Steps are as follows….
- With you middle finger, take a generous amount of Almond Truffle and lightly dab the lid area entirely. In light rubbing motions blend the excess above the crease. (Take extra care not to agitate the eye and wash hands).
- With the middle finger, take a generous amount of Divinity and blend from the top of the brow bone into Almond Truffle.
- With your pinky finger, take a small amount of Earl Grey and carve out a halo. (I recommend starting from the inner going outwards. Use the excess to blend into Almond Truffle and into the waterline).
- With your peter pointer, put a droplet of setting spray into Molasses Chip and lightly dab onto the centre of the eyelid. (This WILL feel like finger painting).
- Take a small amount of Earl Grey and blend areas as needed.
- Highlight the inner corner of the eye and brow bone with Satin Sheets with your ring finger.
What I Learned From This
When using the setting spray method to bring out Molasses Chip, by using your fingers the shimmer shows more than using a brush and the same method.
It is also harder to blend out the crease area flawlessly. I’m grateful for crease and blending brushes.
What do you think of this little experiment? What would you do if you were brushless?
