*How To Achieve This Cut Crease Look* (Steps)

Cut Crease

This was a fun look to do because I don’t usually create green looks but this turned out amazing. I used some really good products plus my new Morphe palette. So here is what you need to do…

Step 1: Prepare your eyebrow

I like to start with my eyebrow because it is easier and if you mess up, you don’t have to fix anything else. Trust me, eyebrows are the easiest when started first.

Step 2: Prepare your base

The base is your eye primer or concealer. I use concealer because I can get a brighter color with it than a primer. After the base, add your powder or bronzer to set your eye. I sometimes use bronzer because it works so good. 

Step 3: Blend

With a blending brush and the color you picked, start blending on the crease of your eye. Blend with light strokes so it doesn’t get too dark. Do not go up to the eyebrow with the eyeshadow. When you blend, you can feel where your eyeball is and that is how far you will go. 

Step 4: Create your cut crease 

The cut crease is really easy to create. You want to get a thin brush and add some concealer on it. Carefully line the concealer higher of your eyelid. A cut crease can be any size you like so feel free to go higher or lower with your crease. High cut crease are perfect for people who have small eyes and eyelids. After you draw your cut crease with the concealer, fill in with conceler. A cut crease can look any type of way so you can be creative with it. You can do a full or a half cut crease. 

Step 5: Add the eyeshadow to the cut crease

Add your color to the cut crease to bring out your eye. I like to add bright or sparkly colors to my cut creases to bring out my look. 

Step 6: Finish your look

The last thing to do is to finish your look. Add your eyeliner, lashes, foundation, and concealer. That is how you accomplish a cut crease look. These are the steps I used to create the look above. I hope you guys enjoy it! 

One Color And Go!

If you are the type of person that is always in a rush when doing your makeup then this post is right for you. When I am trying to make it to class but I wanna do my makeup, I throw on one eyeshadow color and eyeliner. It’s not a crazy color but a neutral color. I wear a light brown to dark orange color because it goes with everything. You blend the color on your eye so that it’s not just sitting there and you can go. The last thing to do is add you mascara and or some eyeliner.

How To Get The Brightest Colors To Pop On Your Eyeshadow

The first thing that comes to your mind might be primer, right. No! Primer is good for eyeshadow but I only use concealer because it really makes the color brighter. I use concealer then set it with a powder. It does not matter what powder you use. Just set your eye. You do not want a wet base. 

Next, you want to really dig into that eyeshadow. (lol) When I use the bright pink colors, I dig so I have a lot of powder on my brush and it always comes out super bright. (dig,dig,dig)

Lastly, do not swipe the color on your eye. If you are looking to get a bright color then you have to pat the color on your eye. Trust me, there is a huge difference between the two. 

Why I Choose Bright Colors Over The Basics

When I say basics, I am talking about the brown, tan, black, neutral shades. I have one full palette with those colors. The palette is the Morphe 3502 Palette. I love the palette because they have colors you wear everyday and for any occasion. 

I have many palettes with bright colors because I love the rainbow. (lol) I am in love with all bright colors because they pop! They bring out your eyes and make you stand out. You can also do a lot like mix different colors together, you can get different Ombre looks, and much more. I like that the colors let you express your artistic side even if you are not a artist. To be honest, if you do makeup then you are a artist.


Throw Back To The First Look That I have Created: Woah!

I don’t even know what to say. When I look back at the picture now, all I can say is wow. (lol) I thought it was so cute then. I also took the picture with a old android phone so the quality wasn’t great. I don’t think the look was that bad but compared to my looks now, it was bad. I wasn’t good at blend so my colors didn’t go anywhere. I found out after a while that I was not good at blending. (haha) I still remember bragging about this picture and telling everyone how good it was. Maybe some lashes would’ve helped this picture.

What Is The Purpose Of Contouring?

Contouring is such a big deal in makeup because it brings out your features. Plus you can make new ones. (lol) When you see people contouring their jaws and noses, it brings that specific feature out more. I love contouring. Many people do the full contour which is under the eyes, nose, cheek bones, neck and so on. That is too much for me, just because I am in college and I don’t need all of that unless its a weekend. I don’t do the neck contour though. I haven’t tried it yet because I feel like its too much and I get hot really fast. Just remember that after you contour, you have to bake. You do not to walk around with a melting face. 🙂
