MOTD + Pictorial — Horizon

Happy Thursday!

I know I’ve been posting pictorials for the same palette in the last couple weeks, but I do want to review it soon so I can play with other palettes.

This is technically the 5th look I have done using this palette, I hope you guys aren’t tired of it yet because I have two more looks to show you before the end of September and I’ll move on from this palette, I swear lol.


I wanted to use Varadero on the eyelid but I didn’t like how it looked so I took off the makeup and instead, decided to use the lightest shade, La Costa. I love how it turned out. I’ve been trying to practice doing halo/cut-crease looks so I’m sorry if you see them often, I just want to get the hang of it.

I named it Horizon because it reminded me of how the sun shines on the horizon as it’s rising or setting. I also feel like this look gives some autumnal vibes, so yay!

Horizon — Pictorial


STEP 1: Prime and set eyelids (my skin was a bit stained from another look).
STEP 2: Apply Coco-taxi slightly above the crease (as usual).
STEP 3: Apply Tropico on the crease and all over the lid.
STEP 4: Apply Cafecito all over the lid, avoid applying onto the crease.
STEP 5: Apply concealer on the middle of the eyelid
STEP 6: Apply La Costa on top of the concealer so the shade sticks. Apply Cafecito around La Costa to blend the two shades in.
STEP 7: Apply the shades Coco-taxi, Tropico, and Cafecito in that order on the lower lashline to connect top and bottom.
STEP 8: Apply La Costa in the inner corner and brow bone as highlight, and finish off with tightlining both top and bottom waterlines and adding mascara and/or lashes.


I might take a break from pictorials when I’ve posted the remaining looks because October is practically around the corner and I want to give some Halloween looks a shot.

What do you guys think of this look though?
I hope you’re all having a good week!

    1. Thank you! I’ve been really trying to practice and it’s definitely not an easy thing to master you have to have really steady hands and lots of patience lol.
      I’m working on those Halloween looks already. I finished the first one today I’m not entirely happy with it but I’m going to look back at the footage tomorrow before I do it all over again. Lol.

      1. It doesn’t look easy at all, so I’m very impressed. I think you’ve done a fantastic job with learning how to do the cut crease for sure.
        Ooh yay, I can’t wait to see them! I think Halloween looks are probably my favorite of all time lol. They are just so fun and creepy! 😀

        1. Thanks it took me a couple months. Makeup is truly an art I have yet to master and I cannot wait to get better lol.
          Haha I might do the first look again. I know what went wrong now I’ll have to go and find the proper stuff haha but I agree, they’re really fun and I love seeing people create them
