Happy hump day!
For at least a year now, I have been attempting to achieve the perfect “cut crease” style eye make up. It certainly isn’t easy, and I had many failed attempts until I finally came up with a formula that I was comfortable with.
I love a soft eye mixed with a statement lip, so I had to do a post.
First of all, I had a lot of feedback on the headpiece I am wearing in this photo. I picked it up in the spring from Monsoon/Accessorize in London. I love to pair this head piece with a sleek, middle-parted hairstyle. Strangely, the head piece alone makes such a statement that it can easily take an outfit from from casual to fancy in a split second.
To start out, I primed my face using Benefit Cosmetics Porefessional Primer. I used a dampened beauty blended to buff Giorgio Armani Luminous silk into my face evenly.
I have recently collaborated with a company called Rodial. It is a luxury skin care and make up line. They sent me 3 products. A concealer, contour powder and highlighting pen. I have used all of the products in this look.
I applied the Rodial Concealer under my eyes and blended with my dampened beauty blender. I can honestly say it was the most blendable concealer I have ever used. It is not cakey, creasing is minimal and non- existent when set with a transluscent powder.
I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills cream contour palette “Light” and set the contour areas with the Rodial Contour powder and highlight areas with Kryolan Transluscent powder.
I filled my eyebrows using Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade “Soft Brown.” and used the Rodial Highlighter pen to define under my brows. I used Urban Decay Naked Palette Original on my eyes.
1. I used a MAC Cosmetics fluffy blended brush to blend colour “Naked” above my crease as a transition colour.
2. Apply “Buck” into crease using the same fluffy blending brush, pulling the colour outward into a cat eye formation.
3. Use a pencil brush to further define and carve out the winged crease using “Hustle.”
4. I then applied Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Pencil Concealer stick to my eyelids and used a brush to create a clean edge between the concealer and shadows.
5. Apply “Virgin” to eyelids and brow bones.
6. Apply Mascara and Lashes (Optional.)
In this photo I am wearing Salon System Lashes.
On my lips I am wearing Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick “Sarafine.”
