Here’s an eye look I tried out last Tuesday for a movie + dinner. I changed the lip to a pretty red (Le Métier de Beauté’s Signature)after I got off the train. LOL I don’t like commuting with heavy makeup. However, the true focus here = the eyes! It’s a neutral look, obviously, but I did a cut crease, an extended wing, AND pretty thick lashes (for my standards anyway), which I don’t do often.
A cut crease is when the crease color is more pronounced than super blended out. That’s how I understand it, anyway. I used several colors from theBalm’s Nude ‘Tude Palette, which I’ve spoken about a lot here. I find that since using it from way back when, I may have changed my opinion on this slightly, but we’ll get to that later.
I used Sassy (frosty white) on the inner two-thirds, Stubborn (shimmery pink) on the outer third. Silly (glittery warm brown) as the crease color which extended to the outer part of the eye. I used Snobby (cool yellow) as the inner corner highlight.
For the wing & lower lash line, I used Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in Stiletto and I set it with Serious (slightly shimmery black). For lashes, I used Maybelline The Rocket over Maybelline The HyperCurl, on curled lashes.
For the rest of the face, I used BRTC Jasmine Whipping Essence, Graymelin CC Base Cream, and Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Mood Light. The brows were an afterthought in a frantic rush to get out of the door ASAP = the quickest product I could think of = K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow 24H. For blush I used both Lover and Hussy from the Illamasqua Blusher Duo. For lips, I have the Le Métier de Beauté Lip Crème in Café Crème.
And that’s it! Hope this post was helpful. 🙂
