Most of you saw the photos I posted on Facebook, wearing this look with my client. She was fairly good with makeup but she didn’t know how to do a cut crease so I decided to teach her that. I had so much fun creating this look, that I had to post the details on here in case you are interested in purchasing some of the products used to create this stunning minty cut crease. PLUS, I have a little step by step added to each product as well 😉
Let me know in the comment section down below if you would ever try out this look and also where you would wear it to
Pre-Primer : Nivea for MEN, Post Shave Sensitive Balm
Primer focussing on pore areas: Benefit POREfessional
Dot Foundation all over face and buff in with Kabuki Brush: Loreal Infallible Foundation (in glass bottle, not the MATTE one in tube)
Highlight under the eyes, down the bridge of the nose, the forehead and chin as well as contour with the darker shade under the cheekbones : Stila Shape and Shade contour duo in light
Set everything with a loose translucent powder: Yardley Translucent Buff
Contour with some powder : Essence Shape your Face Contouring Palette in ready, set, peach
Add a shimmer bronzer: MAC Global Glow
Add some Blush : Essence Shape your Face Contouring Palette in ready, set, peach
And a shimmer highlighter just above your blush, top of the cupids bow (to make the lips look plumpier) and a little tiny bit on the bridge of the nose: Catrice Treasure Trove highlighter
Fill in your brows using a powder: Catrice Eyebrow Set Powder duo
Carve them out with concealer: Catrice Contour Palette (2nd lightest shade)
And set them using a fibre gel : Benefit Gimme Brow
Use an eyeshadow base to prevent your shadows from creasing and also help make it last the whole day: MAC Soft Ochre Paint Pot
Start creating your cut crease line by drawing it on just above your crease while winging it out at the end: Stila Body Palette , shade: midnight quartz.
With a pencil brush blend the same shade upwards towards the brow.
Take a blending brush and a warm brown shade to blend the top part for it to look smooth: Inglot shade: Sorry I dont have the shade nr, I know its like a clay warm brown.
Add a little bit of black to the cut crease and blend slightly upwards: Too Faced Semi-sweet chocolate black shade
Now take a flat synthetic brush and start carving out the bottom of the crease making it look more defined : using MAC Soft Ochre again
Now we can place the lid colours.
Start with the inner corner of the eye using a very light shade : Stila Body Palette , shade: moonstone
for the middle of the lid use a mint/baby blue shade: Stila Body Palette , shade: aquamarine
and the end under neath the cut crease wing you want to place a dark green shade: Stila Body Palette , shade: emerald
Go in and blend the cut crease very gently.
Now you can wing your eyelids using a black gel liner: Inglot Black Gel Liner
If you messed up your cut crease a little bit, you can always add any shimmer or glitter liquid liner to define it more. I just mixed a shimmery shadow (Shaaanxo Palette) with some Liquid (MAC Fix Plus Setting Spray) and drew it on with a fine liner brush.
For the bottom lashline apply the same warm brown you used on the top part of the crease area. tightline it with the same black you used and smoke it out using a plum shade by wiggling it back and forth as you move over the lower lash line: Stila Body Palette , shade: Garnet
You can apply lashes if you want, but I just coated my eyelashes in a lot of mascara: Benefit Roller Lash & Rimmel MAX Bold Curves
Line your waterline using a mint eyeliner : Colourpop Zulu Liner
Finish off you lips with your fave nude shade: Colourpop BFF Lip Pencil & BFF Lippiestick
