So these days I have been experimenting with cut-creases (only because I suck at them and want to get better) so I tried a softer version, just to see how it comes out. I was pretty pleased with the result, so I am going to resume what I’ve done just in case you are wondering. Enjoy!
A heads up before I begin: the steps that I followed can be applied with any other shades other than those I have chosen, so feel free to experiment!
I started with a light cool-tone matte pink in my crease, to define it and also to make sure all the other colors would blend out nicely; I followed up with a cool-toned brown shade (my bronzer, the Pupa Milano Blush & Bronze duo). With a smaller, more precise brush, I applied a darker matte brown, from the Makeup Revolution Salvation Palette, creating a harsher line, one which I blended really well with a blending brush. After everything was nice and smooth, it was time to create the cut-crease, using a matte black eye shadow from the same palette. I applied it using an even smaller, more precise brush, and I focused in my crease, not being super careful with it, because I still had to add the lid color.
For the entire lid, I used a Maybelline Color Tattoo pot, in the shade 05 Eternal Gold, and I applied it with my finger very carefully around the black, as to not completely cover it. Once I was happy with the way it looked, I set it with a yellow shade. Using a black eye-liner, I created a winged line, which was easier to trace, because I had placed some tape, thus I just followed its shape.
I smoked out the lower lash line using all the matte shades I used in the crease, intensifying the black to make the eye look pop more. The makeup look was completed by applying heavily some mascara.
For the rest of my face, everything was pretty much the same as in my last makeup look, which I will link here in case you want to check it out.
