Get the Look | Sacred – Makeup Tutorial

25th WeddingAnniversaryTreats

Happy Friday! Look at this, posting two days in a row. I am trying to get back on my schedule.  Today, I have a tutorial for this look using the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk and the Kat Von D Saints and Sinners palette. I got a wild hair about the shade called Exorcism from the Saints and Sinners because it’s the one shade I haven’t used and I wanted to do something dark and dramatic to transition into Fall. I was thinking this shade was more or a royal purple but it turned out to pull bluer. Either way, I really wanted to pair it with warm orange tones and gold. This is what I came up with.

You can obviously use just about any eyeshadow palette on the market right now to create this look. These were the ones I had on hand that I was feeling. I know there is a lot of feelings about both these brands and I’m not here for any of that drama. I just wanted to be creative and have some fun with makeup.

So if you want to see how I created this look, just keep reading!

The Eyes

Nothing like a couple of well-loved palettes. I am starting this look out using the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk because I am in love with the tones in this palette and wanted to create some depth with the orange shades rather than just going in with the one from the Saints and Sinners.

I have already done my brows and primed my lids with a new concealer I am testing out from a brand called Bonnies Choice. I lightly set the lid with a loose setting powder from the same brand then dusted Desert Sand all over the lid just to even everything out.

Why yes, I have burgundy brows. It matches my new hair color.

Next, I went in with Eden on a large fluffy blending brush to start building depth and dimension in the transition/socket line.

I applied Eden very high in the socket line and above the crease. This serves and a transition for my crease shades.

Now on a blending brush, I took Blazing. A bright orange just below where I placed Eden. blending the two together. I will be adding more of this shade later.

Closer to the crease on a tapered blending brush I applied Saffron.

I wanted these warm shades to flow into one another seamlessly.

Jumping over to the Saints and Sinners palette.

With a flat shader brush, I took the shade Exorcism, the inspiration for the look and packed it on to the lid. This shade gave me a bit of trouble but I was finally able to build it up.

I applied Exorcism all over the lid and blended the edges ever so gently into the reddish-orange shade at the crease.

I went back in with Saffron on a small blending brush and softened the edges further and intensified the Blazing shade with the larger brush.

On the inner corner, I went in with this amazing bright yellow gold.

I tried to keep Relic, not so much on the lid but on the inner portion of the eye and pulling it upward almost as if it were hugging the lid.

Next I did a wing using a liquid liner.

Then blended it softly on the outer corner with Sabbath.

I ended up pulling Exorcism out toward the wing in a cat eye shape then deepening it up with the black. This is a very flattering way to do a wing on hooded eyes because it hides any distortion to the wing when my eyes are relaxed. Obviously, I went more dramatic with it this time but it can be done softly.

I also took this time to clean up any fall out under my eye and sharpen up the liner with a pointed q-tip and a bit of face primer.

I went ahead and finished up the skin and moved on to the lower lash line where I took a combination of Blazing and Saffron on a pencil brush and applied it all the way across and blended out slightly.

Lastly, I took a bit of the black eyeshadow and joined the lower lash line up to the wing in the outer corner and also popped more of the gold on the inner portion. Then, I finished the eye up with mascara. I missed a few steps with pictures. I having trouble importing them and some were lost.

I did this look at like 4 am while my husband was at work and he texted me around 5 am when I just finished up with pictures asking if I wanted to go eat at Cracker Barrel when he got home. So, I went to Cracker Barrel in this full-on dramatic vampy AF glam at 6 am. Not the first time and won’t be the last. LOL.

I really love how this look came out and I had so much fun creating it. I hope you guys like it. I am working on an Ultimate Brush Guide as a companion to my tutorials ya’ll can use for reference because I name brush types but I want to be able to show you them as well without overloading these posts with pictures. I’m hoping to have it up next week and I will link it in here.

That’s about all for today. I am fighting to keep my eyes open at the moment for please forgive any typos and thanks for the patience as I took some time off. Sometimes you just need a mental break for EVERYTHING.

Also new hair! I feel revived.
