Subtle Glitter Cut Crease

Serving you some glitter today!

Welcome back babes! So happy to share this glittery makeup look with you.

First and foremost, I just want to put it out there I'm definitely not a professional makeup artist. Just a girl who enjoys playing with makeup and creating fun looks! So this is my take on attempting a subtle glitter cut crease.

If you've never attempted a cut crease before, keeping reading while I share some of easy tips with you!

I started off by prepping my skin and doing my entire face as I normally do, the usual foundation, concealer, and powders.

Primer - Fenty Pro Filt'r Primer

Foundation - NARS Radiant Longwear

Concealers - Makeup Revolution Conceal & Correct and Two Faced Born This Way

Setting Powder - Huda Beauty Easy Bake Loose Powder

Bronzer and Contour - Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit

Blush - NARS Blush in Orgasm

Highlight - MAC Highlight in Soft & Gentle

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade

Then I focused on my eyes. I used the Amrezy x Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Palette to smoke out my crease and bring it up a little closer to my brow bone. I used subtle colors since I was doing a more day time look -- so medium and dark brows and tans.

The trick to accomplishing a cut crease, especially if you're a first timer, is using a liquid eyeshadow. They basically look like liquid lipsticks.

I went in with the Kokie Liquid Eyeshadow in Crystal Fusion. The doe applicator makes it easy to draw out the crease of your eyelid and then swipe the color all over your eyelid.

Once I cut the crease out and filled in my lid, I went back in with a fluffier makeup brush and blended my crease slightly.

I finished up with Wet n Wild's black eyeliner and black mascara from Lancome, setting it with my favorite Morphe setting spray.

For lips, I kept it pretty neutral with Wet n Wild's lipliner in Plumberry and topped it with Loreal Infallible Liquid Lipstick in Nudist -- my current favorite lip combo.
