Cut Crease

Hi everyone,

I did this look on Nic this weekend, it’s a cut crease with an Indian twist to the look.

Nic wasn’t wearing any makeup except for mascara when I started, so I prepped her face with Smashbox – Hybrid 2 in 1 Primer which gives her skin a healthy glow. I then added some Maybelline – Dream Satin Liquid in Ivory to lighten her skintone a little. I then used MUFE lift concealer in no. 2 mixed with no. 1 to hide her dark circles, I buffed this into her skin with a Smashbox – Crease brush no. 10 because this blends the concealer into her skin amazingly.

I then quickly set the makeup with a little Make Up For Ever – Super Matte Loose Powder in 12 Translucent Natural and then added some Stila – Sun SPF15 Bronzing powder in shade 01 to place the outer parts of her contouring (with a MAC 109 brush). I also contoured her nose with this bronzing powder. I then used a bronzer from the Yves Saint Laurent – Sensation Soleil MakeUp Palette no. 1 to really define the hollows of her cheeks.

Nicole has very light brows and I added a mixture of Urban Decay – Naked eyeshadow and MAC – Cork and MAC – Wedge to add multiple colours to her brows. After the brows are ready you can see how far you can do with the eyes. I wanted to do a cut crease with an Indian twist on Nic because it’s something I’ve never done on her before and I wanted to see how it would look. I started with a base of MAC – Soft Ochre and set this with a little Smashbox Eyeshadow in Vanilla.

I used Make Up For Ever – Flash Colour Case‘s dark blue with a MAC angled brush to place the crease bringing it way down on the inner corner. I did it literally ON her crease and blended it upward. I then used Sephora – Colorful Mat Mono Eyeshadow in the colour midnight kiss No. 34 to set the blue and used a little Urban Decay – DeLuxe Eyeshadow in Fishnet to add a little extra brightness.

I lined her eyes with a L’Oreal black eyeliner pencil and then used a little Urban Decay – DeLuxe Eyeshadow in Freakshow under her eyes and made the line fade out where it hit the cut crease. And that is all I did for this look.

I hope you all like this eye, I certainly did!
