The Look: Eye of Horus

Eye of Horus - themaquillage.com.au

Eye of Horus is an Aussie brand I’d always heard touted for their amazing mascara and liquid liner, and as an ever-curious makeup maven I was very excited when a selection from the range landed on my doorstep. In the name of beauty blogger research (someone’s got to do it etc etc) I’ve given the products a thorough workout and put together a day and a night look, both of which I know I will be sporting quite frequently in the future…

Mascara Black Goddess* and Liquid Define Eyeliner* Truth be told, I am particularly fond of my Clinique Extreme Volume mascara and Stila Liquid Eyeliner, so these products had a lot to live up to to knock those two off their pedestal. And do you know what, those two had some hot competition from the EOH offerings. Hot tip: If you pick up any one of the products mentioned in this post, make sure it’s the mascara. Two words: Ah-mazing. Eye of Horus - themaquillage.com.auThis volumising and lengthening mascara bumps your natural lashes up to falsie status, creating a dramatic look which is unlike any other mascara I’ve used. In the makeup looks below, I can barely differentiate between the look where I have false lashes on and the one that I don’t. It’s that good. The Define liquid liner is something special as well – solid black, glides on smoothly, DOES NOT BUDGE. Seriously, beware when you swatch it. Lines on your hands for days. Although longevity is never a bad thing when you’re a fairly oily-lidded gal like me. You can check out the mascara and liner in action in the looks below.

The Palettes

Top: Isis Sun Goddess. Shades L to R: Enigma Mist/Sacred Husk/Chalice Bronze.
Bottom: Maat Sultry Dark Temptress. Shades L to R: Armana Light/Ankh Odyssey/Dark Dynasty

These cute little black and gold embossed packages are the perfect travelling size, they take up no space at all. There are three shadows in each – the Maat Sultry Dark Temptress is made up of matte chocolate pigments, perfect for creating an easy smokey eye.  Isis Sun Goddess combines luminous warm toned shadows that can be applied wet or dry. The shades in this palette are so intensely pigmented that I did the below look with them dry, but I’m waiting for my next big night on the town to give them a go wet and really showcase that pigment.

Maat Dark Temptress Shadow Palette* Eye of Horus - themaquillage.com.auEye of Horus - themaquillage.com.au This palette is perfect for neutral, everyday looks that take about five minutes flat to put together – a no mess, no fuss, polished look. This look has Armana Light all over the lid and on the browbone, Ankh Odessey in the socket and under on the lower lash line, and and a wet angle brush to use Dark Dynasty as a soft eyeliner.  I’ve used the mascara on the top lashes with a tiny bit on the lower lashes, and no falsies. The shadows in this palette are soft, easily blendable, and the pigmentation is all there. I use the NARS Smudge-Proof Eyeshadow Base to make sure the look stays in place all day.

I loved this look, and the shades in the palette are just stunning. All three shadows have an element of shimmer in them, so when working with these I will complete my eye makeup first before moving on to my base, to make sure I can properly clean up any fallout. For this look, I tapped on the pinky Enigma Mist all over my lid with my finger, and blended the darkest shade Sacred Husk into my socket and brought underneath to my lower lash line. I then tapped on the golden copper shade Chalice Bronze as a ‘pop’ shade in the centre of my lid. I used the liquid liner on my lash line, the black Eye of Horus Goddess pencil on my waterline, and the Armana Light shade from the Maat palette on my tear duct and browbone. Last but not least I applied Ardell False lashes in Natural, but looking now I definitely think the mascara on it’s own was more than enough – amazing stuff that! All in all, big wins here. My most go-to products out of the above would be the mascara (do yourself a favour and grab it, you’ll thank me later) and the Maat palette, because anything that creates a polished smokey eye in a snap is a winner with me.

    Gorgeous! I’ve heard really amazing things about this brand, and I love their Egyptian aesthetic haha. The Sun Goddess trio looks gorg, and I like the fact that you can take the shadows out and mix and match if you wanted!

    I love their mascara also :) It separates and lengthens the lashes so so well! I found their liquid liner to be pretty disappointing unfortunately – it wasn’t as pigmented as I would have liked and the tip of the eyeliner starts to get a bit manky… Oh and their pencil eyeliners are great to! :)
