LOOK | I never met a sunset that I didn't like.

A cut crease seems like the most daunting way to do eyeshadow and always looks so striking. I've recently bought more makeup than I'm happy to admit and two of my favourite purchases have been the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette (Which I have used so much I have already hit pan on a lot of the shadows) and the Sleek Ultra Matte Brights palette. For this eye look I used a few of the warmest shades from both to really bring out the blue in my eyes. 

I find that with any eye look I get the best results when I use my Zoeva Matte Eyeshadow Primer and set it with a bone eyeshadow shade - this time ABH Tempera. When it comes to the actual colour, I first started blending the matte orange from the Sleek palette just above my crease to begin the cut crease. It's a very beautiful and bring orange which is so hard to find these days! To deepen up the cut crease I took ABH Realgar with my Illamasqua Angled Brush - this brush is thicker and more densely packed than most angled liner so it really concentrates the colour and allows you to be precise, the best way to do this is little by little and blend as you go. I find it easiest to then reapply my primer to my lid to really cut the crease out and then set it with a flat shader brush (Something like the MAC 239) to really make the crease stand out. A cheeky bit of winged liner and away we go. And obviously I can't leave any eyemakeup without my trusty YSL Babydoll Mascara.

With statement eyes I always go for a nude and in this case I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss in Butterscotch - What a mouthful! Its comfortable, pigmented and the colour has a perfect hint of peach to tie everything together. Et voila. A striking cut crease that is surprisingly easy. I think it turned out pretty beautiful!

  1. What a gorgeous look! I'm a sucker for sunset colours too and I love the colours and gradient you created. The liner is perfect too! :)
