Classic Cut Crease | Favourite Makeup Looks

Not going to lie and say the technique of a 'cut crease' is the most simple makeup look. It's more one of those if you have a good bit of time to play with your makeup and you want something that will draw attention - most people will see the effort you have put in.

Where as it is a bit more technically challenging, the amount of products you require are quite minimal.

Basically you carve out your crease line with the liner (the hardest part is getting both eyes equal, takes alot of opening and closing/looking straight into a mirror) and then blending above with black eyeshadow. Be careful not to blend everywhere as you want the lid to be clean. If anyone would like a youtube tutorial on this please don't be afraid to request - same goes for anything!

What products I have on/used for this:

Face: Smashbox photofinish primer, Chanel perfection lumiere velvet (New favourite!) 20 beige, elf blush bronzer duo turks and caicos

Mac Myth

MUA Brow definer Fair (The black double sided one with a cream eyeshadow on the other side - New favourite!)
MUA brow mascara Fair
I have truly scrapped Mac brow products now that I have these cheap alternatives in my life, that are a fraction of the price, last longer and are just as good!  

Mac Soft ochre paint pot (swap for whatever primer you have)
Mac Smolder Eyeliner (swap for any black eyeliner)
Mac Carbon Eyeshadow (swap for any black eyeshadow you have)
Mascara Lancome Hynose Doll eyes 

I really hope this inspired you if anything, Thank you! xxx
