Dramatic Cut Crease Makeup Look

This makeup look seems to be just a winged look, but until you close your eyes you than see the cut crease makeup look. Its definitely a fun look and can be created many different ways. I love the cut crease trend! It can be achieved with shadows or liners to create either a bold glam look or a settle neutral look! I just wanted to play around with makeup and create a cut crease and thats what I did!

 

To start out I always like to start with the skin first, so the foundation I used is CoverGirl ‘Tru Blend’ and L’Oreal Infallible 16hr. The CoverGirl has more pink undertones while the L’Oreal has more yellow undertones and helps the appearance of fatigue. This foundation combination is full coverage and long lasting. Of course the concealer I used for under the eyes and to also highlight the face is the one and only Hard Candy ‘GlamofLauge’. This concealer works best with a damp beauty blender. To set the foundation and concealer I used Physician Formula ‘Mineral Correcting Powder’.

As for the face I used the bronzer thats in the NYX Palette, to  contour the cheek bones and temples, I than warmed it up by using one of my all time favourite bronzers by SHISEIDO in ‘bronzer 2′. For blush I actually mixed two blushes to get the desired shade I wanted, which is a nude/pinky shade, so I used a bit of the second blush in the palette paired with Revlon ’80 Sandalwood Beige’ which is exactly what its name is, a neutral beige! To add more of a highlight I used the yellow toned highlight, on top of my cheek bones and down the bridge of the nose, gotta have a glow! For

For the brows I used a soft brown shadow in the palette to add shape and to set the brows I used Maybelline ‘Brow Drama’. The eyes I wanted to keep soft, so the cut crease  would be the star of this look! I first used a matte light shade, to cancel out any discolouring on the eye lids and than used a soft shimmery brown shade with a tad of gold shimmer through it. Than for the crease I used a deeper brown matte shade to give the crease definition before I put liner in the cease to create a cut crease. As for the liner I used two, to tight line both the upper and lower lash lines I used a creamy pencil eye liner which is from Gosh in very black. Using a creamy liner will glide on nicely, with out pulling your bottom lash line. Having watery eyes like myself  can make this difficult, so I find the best way is to look straight into the mirror. Gently run the pencil liner across both your top tight line and bottom lash line.

Creating a cut crease with hooded eyelids like myself, can be much more difficult, so to achieve the cut crease look I just drew slightly above where my crease is. I used a small angled brush to create the crease line, that I than blended out softly with a blending brush. When creating a cut crease eye, its all about adding a bit of shadow at a time and blending it out! The pictures don’t give the eye makeup justice! To finish off the eyes, its all about the mascara, the mascara I used that gives both length and volume to its finest which is Stila ‘Glamoureyes Mascara’. Than for the lips I wanted a pop of pink so I used L’Oreal lip stain in  ‘189 Pink Rebellion’.

This look can be changed up in numerous different ways, to either be more wearable or it can get much more Glam!!

Hope you lovelies enjoyed!!
