How To Perfect Your Cut Crease! Tips/Techniques

There was one day that I thought I could actually try out a cut crease but had no idea if it would fit my eyeshape. Then....THIS HAPPENED ❤️❤️😍 ...well actually happened again! (Second time doing it) Since both times were successful, I’ll give you guys some tips, tools, and techniques that would be optimal to use to get the cleanest cut crease! 1. Tools Brushes: The idea is to have a brush that isn’t super stiff and super flimsy. I use 2 types of brushes from morphe: MORPHE - M505 Tapered Blender Brush
MORPHE - M506 Tapered Mini Blender Brush
The m505 was used to apply the base color and the m506 was used to apply the darker shadow. 2. Technique The key thing to starting is to FIND THE BONE OF YOUR EYE. I know that sounds weird but it helps create that roundness for the eye on the cut crease. This is where you’ll focus the colors, especially the darker shades. When it comes to layering on the concealer/foundation for the cut crease, I use the SIGMA - E54 Medium Sweeper Brush
to STAMP THE CONCEALER/FOUNDATION FIRST and then blend in later to decrease the likelihood for mistakes. Don’t grab too much concealer or foundation either. You don’t want to make stamping difficult/messy for you. When you stamp, follow the your eye bone once more. It helps give you an idea/outline of where to put the concealer. Set the concealer/foundation with a translucent powder to prevent shifting. This also helps layer on any other colors you want in the cut crease. I put a peachy white color plus a shimmer to bring it out as a highlight after using HUDA BEAUTY - Matte & Metal Melted Double Ended Liquid Eyeshadows
in shade Faux Fur. Then you take you brush handle and line it up against the lower lid at an angle so you can see where you will put the eyeliner and if there’s any need for extension. The main thing with everything is to take it easy and slow. You will be going back and forth with correcting the shape. That’s normal and don’t beat yourself up for it! Finishing both eyes took me one to two hours the first time. You’ll get faster at it the more you practice! Happy practicing! ❤️

Clean Smokey Green + More Eyeliner Tips! ❤️
OOOOPH. LOVE THIS EYE! I had this on my phone for awhile and I couldn’t get over how crrrrrrisp but Smokey it looks! For this look I used VISEART - Grande Pro 3 MAC - Pro Longwear Fluidline ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette For my eyeshape, I found using flat brushes that also had the ability to blend gave the best results. Round blending brushes ended up taking the eyeshadow up too high to my brows! I used SIGMA - E54 Medium Sweeper Brush to build up color & SONIA G - Sky Eye Set (the jumbo blender) to occasionally blend out the outer edges of the shadow Eyeliner Tips: The most interesting part about this was how I went about the eyeliner and had it coming out a success! I did the usual stamping routine(look back on a previous post about eyeliner). However, I made a minor change to to how I started. Technique-wise I lined the tail first with my eyeshadow so the edges of them align with each other and then stamped downward towards my eye and then stamped the rest of my eye. Usually I would start fattening the tail first rather than have it as a second priority, but this can be problematic. With a smokey eye it’s really easy to accidentally overdue the eyeliner and then your Smokey becomes a black eye 😂 By first taking a really thin brush to create an alignment, you get a crisp line that doesn’t require the tape method and it sets you up for how much eyeliner would complement your eye! This is especially useful if you want to create a long tail but don’t have as much lid space to do it! I used the MORPHE - M160-1/16 Angled Eyeliner Brush for this look! Hope you all are having a wonderful day! Sending love and happiness your way! 😄❤️

Getting that PERFECT Blend: Tips/Tool/Tutorial!
HAAAAY EVERYBODY! Today I thought I share the tools that help create the PERFECT gradient of eyeshadow shown in in the first photo! The second photo will give you a visual. Take advantage of it!!! 😃 Here are some tips: 1. Stamping I mention stamping a lot in my posts but just for eyeshadow purposes, stamping helps build up pigment on the area desired without blending it out. This look required stamping first to provide that clean precision. The edges of the base color become more diffused after we added the darker shade, because there’s a lot more blending that has to be done with darker shades. If it bothers you too much you’re more than welcome to give the edges a light blend with the SIGMA - E54 Medium Sweeper Brush 2. Get a Smaller Blending Brush for Darker Shades THIS IS SUPER IMPORTANT! Many of us make the mistake to go with a regular sized blending brush. The size of your blending brush makes all the difference in whether your eyeshadow becomes muddy or a beautiful soft gradient that transitions well. I use SONIA G - Sky Eye Set in it has a brush that is called the “Mini booster” and it applies the perfect amount of dark pigment. The natural hairs on the brush really help in blending it out and into the inner crease of my eyes. If you don’t have this brush get something similar in size. Here’s a more inexpensive optionMORPHE - M506 Tapered Mini Blender Brush 3. Micro-adjustments Micro-adjustments can make or break your look. We’ve all been there when it comes to eyeliner. (Wanting you add just a HAIR and we come out looking like a panda🤣) However, don’t let that scare you! Makeup is all about practice and seeing what works for you and your eyeshape. If you find that one spot needs a little help, it’s okay to fix it! The key is to take it easy and slow. You automatically go heavy handed and not check your work, you’ll have a lot more to fix than just that one little spot. 4. The More Dense the Brush, The More Pigment Now this is just a general rule of thumb, but it helps in understanding how much color you’ll be picking up/applying. The more flimsy and fluffy the brush, the softer your look is going to be. The firmer/denser the brush is the more high impact your look is going to be. Hope this has helped you in your application! There’s more to this but these are just the basics! Happy Learning! ❤️

BEST BRUSH FOR SMALL/SEMI-HOODED EYES! 🤩
YOU GUYS. THIS 👏 BRUSH 👏 IS 👏 IT 👏 You have no idea how long I’ve been trying to find a brush that fit my criteria: Tangibee’s Criteria: - Fits her eyeshape - Packs on color well - Blends well without overblending or creating patchiness - Not Poky - Semi Firm - Not your typical round blending brush - Tapered - Works with Well with buttery, powder textures Every brush I would encounter would maybe meet 75% of this criteria. I wanted a brush that could blend while laying it flat on my eye because round blending brushes have a tendency to take my eyeshadow up higher when I wanted a minimalist look(shown in first photo). I never really understood the artistic works of a natural hair eyeshadow brush and how it can impact the final results of eyeshadow. The Sonia G Worker Pro brush really helped me understand it! Here’s the breakdown: 1. Time Reduction The natural hairs on this brush picks up just the right amount of product and reduces fall out! The tapered end allows you to have precision and control over your color placement. Once you place on the color you can literally start using this brush for blending by turning it on it’s side or continue to use it flat! This has reduced my workflow on my eyes from blending for 30 minutes down to 10! You can see the hairs and the shape of the brush on photo 2 and 3. I found that my MORPHE - M505 Tapered Blender Brush can sometimes be too flimsy for the job. This can cause difficulty when you’re working with darker colors or hard-to-blend colors because they just tend to not move anywhere. 2. Shimmers/Metallics We all know that synthetics are great at applying shimmers. However the ones that I’ve tried from morphe, hourglass, and sigma seem to have too much “slip”. Therefore, they’re good for packing but blending can be a mess with sparkles everywhere or you might encounter some streaking during application. That nice shimmer that we all love just suddenly disappears. I was really surprised when I created the eyelook in photo 1 that every single sparkle in the shadow came through on my eyes!Not to mention that blending the top of the eyeshadow was a breeze! If your shimmers seem to look muddy or just “off” and don’t pull that same result as your finger swatches, try the Worker Pro out! In photo 4 you can see the results of me using this brush with the ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Norvina Eyeshadow Palette 3. Eyeshape I found that this brush was a perfect for my eyeshape! I was able to get into those tiny nooks and crannies that would normally be difficult with other flat & dense brushes. I could easily read use this brush for my whole eye area without having to switch to another blending brush. The fact that it was SO SOFT but firm allowed me to create a perfect diffused tail(shown in photo 1 & 4). There was little to no clean up and I took a good 15 minutes just admiring how well my eyeshadow came out! Get this brush! It is LIIIIIFE! 😍❤️

Feeling like a Euphoric Hippie 😆 + Tips
It took me....2 hours to come up with something and this was the result! 😆 I wanted to go for something soft, charming, but still has that pop of something. I love how the white eye show pops off this cool toned, purple-brown. Halloween is around the corner, so I thought it would be a great idea to give you all a couple tips if you want to incorporate something similar into your look. Here are a couple tips on gluing on those gold flecks! 1. LAAAAASH GLUE This is literally the EASIEST thing You could use for your application. I find lash glue much better on the skin for these guys than just regular Elmer’s glue/glue sticks. Gold flecks are typically very flimsy and it can be difficult to really get them to stay on your face. Take your lash glue and apply a needle-sized amount to your face. Take a tweezer and break up a couple gold flecks into various sized pieces. Proceed to use your tweezer to place it on top of the spot you glued. Be gentle with your application. The gold flecks are really fragile! 2. Watch Your Placement With larger, shinier particles, they’ll attract the attention of the eye to that area. Think of using these guys as you would with regular highlighter. The more you put in one area, the more your eye will gravitate towards looking at that spot. I placed the gold flecks around my eye area and super close to my nose, because it’ll take away the natural contours of my nose. In other words, you’re playing with shadows and lights when using gold flecks, crystals, etc. 3. Wash it all off with an Oil/Balm Based Makeup Remover. Once those gold flecks are on with some lash glue...THEY LAST FOREVER throughout the day. Use an oil based cleanser to remove everything and you should be fine. I use TATCHA - Pure One Step Camellia Oil Cleanser For this look I used: ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Norvina Eyeshadow Palette KINNO - Imitation Gold Leaf Schabin Flakes LASHIFY - AMPLIFY GOSSAMER LASHES C10 & C8 WAYNE GOSS - The Weightless Veil Blush Palette in Coral Rose 3CE - Velvet Lip Tint

How to Get More Use Out of Your Bright Colors💕
HELLOOOOOOO! I had a much needed mini break yesterday so there was no post BUT TODAY... I wanted to share some awesome tips since for most of us it’s fall/winter season and many of our bright colors are hibernating until spring! If you’re a person who typically says no to bright pinks, oranges, neon greens, etc. in the fall/winter season or don’t know what to do with them, here’s how you can utilize those colors to benefit your look/wardrobe! I set an example in this photograph of a very wearable but bright makeup look. Here’s how I got it to look “put together” without needed to add a boatload of other colors or create a high contrast. By exploring these techniques you can get a softer look but still stay in the same color spectrum 1. Play with the tones of the shade and apply it to different areas of the face! It can be difficult to use multiple shades of the same color spectrum on the face because things can turn messy/muddy very quickly. You might even look sunburnt if you’re using pinks. This can be due to the fact that some colors have the same undertone that creates the final product. Your skintone also plays a role in how the final results will look. The easiest thing you can do is play with these undertones. Have some fun with shades that can be cool or warm in undertone. You can balance out the face by having some cool tones in certain areas and warm in others. This way you won’t look “sickly”, “crazy”, or sunburnt” at the end of everything. In photo 2, you can see towards my eye area that it’s slightly “warmer” than the makeup on the rest of my face, specifically my upper lid area. The shade I created was a mixture of the color “Wild” and “Delicate” from Violet Voss - Sakura Blossom Eyeshadow and Pressed Pigment Palette , which are both warm in color/undertone. Next, I added a light cool-toned pink on my lower lid. I wanted the eyes and cheeks to capture most of the attention. Therefore, adding the cool-toned pink helped add dimension without taking away the focal points of the upper lid and cheeks. The idea is to have a sense of balance. 2. Play with Textures! If you have a ton of shades that have bright colored sparkles/shimmers and don’t know what to do with them, use them here! Imagine this being your wardrobe. You can enhance certain patterns in a blouse or t shirt with another pattern. This concept is the same for eyeshadows/face makeup. The micro-particles can really rejuvenate your makeup and enhance the look to create dimension. Imagine have a full face of the same color of bright matte pink. There might not be that UMPH you see in your typical editorials/makeup photos. By adding some highlights and other textures, it will give your eyes something to look at! Use shimmers that may have a similar color profile if you want a unified look. Other Products Used: WAYNE GOSS - The Weightless Veil Blush Palette 3CE - Velvet Lip Tint Happy Experimenting!

MY FAV QUICK EYE LOOK 👀 #CheriePartner
MY FAV QUICK EYE LOOK 👀 #CheriePartner
Hey guys! So today I did a quick two shade eye look! I love to try new color combos and using my Morphe 35H HotSpot always gives me the versatility I need! Two shades are my fav go to because it’s quick and you can do it really within 15 minutes! MORPHE - 35H Hot Spot Artistry Palette Today I did a pretty shimmer blue and brick orange color with a winged liner using NYX matte liquid liner. NYX - Matte Liquid Liner I love this liner because of the tip and the quick dry time! The tip helps my eyeliner to be more precise! The colors I used were Off the Grid and Beachfront. I took a fluffy brush and dipped it in Off the Grid and swept it over my outer crease into the middle and blended out to give a slight blew out look and then popped beach front from the middle into the inner corner of my eye. Then topped it off with the winged liner. That’s really it! I thought it was a cute color combo and hope you guys like it! What’s your fav color combination? BESOS 😘

mastering a few good eye looks is on my summer 2020 goals - and i’m almost out of time! 😱🙃 today i used the Juvia's PLACE - The Warrior Eyeshadow Palette eyeshadow palette. it’s gorgeous! it has five shimmers and three mattes - i will follow up with a swatch post. i used the shades kano on the crease/outer lid, benin on the center lid, and dahomey on the inner lid and tear ducts. some of my eyeshadow look tips: ✨ apply shimmers with fingers and mattes with a fluffy brush like the #Sonia Kashuk - Rounded Crease Brush[products]#[FiveStars] . using your finger allows you to pack on the shimmer colors for a dramatic effect! ✨ use a subtle lash like ARDELL - Wispies Lash - these are my go-to lashes because they give you a little bit of smoke without going overboard. i also always line the top of my lashes with a nice dark liner like URBAN DECAY - 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in ‘zero’. ✨ pack a bit of shimmer near the inner eye / tear ducts, and keep a little fan on hand if you get watery like me! what are some of your eyeshadow tips?? 👁

I went to a wedding last weekend and I decided to wear a baby blue satin top and with that I decided to add some blue to my eyeshadow. I was a but nervous about it because I’ve never actually worn blue eyeshadow before and wearing it for the first time to a wedding- it had to look good! I actually really liked how it turned out 😇😇 I used the shade spoiled from an old LE palette (i dont even remember the name of it) but the shade was called Intense Gaze- a metallic rusty pink with brown tones. I followed the outer lid and crease with a metallic silver shade CHIC. Then I applied the blue. First shade ai applies to the outer lid, called Aqua ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Single and followed up with Venice ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Single Then I finished with the inner corner with shade Pink Champagne #ABH single shadows - Pink Champagne[products]#[FiveStars] which is a glittery metallic pink shade. Its found in the palette pictured here. I love all ABH shadows, they last long and are really pigmented. They look beautiful on and are basically true to their colour on the lid, especially if used with an eyeshadow primer. #cheriepartner
