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! ❤️

Smudging/Smoky Waterline Eyeliner Tips and Tools
There were many times where I would avoid putting eyeliner on my waterline, because I felt like it didn’t suit the shape of my eye. Recently, I started to explore more and MAN I changed my mind after applying a smoky effect to it. Let’s help you achieve a smoky waterline! 1. Applying Eyeliner Choose your eyeliner. A creamy eyeliner that takes a couple of seconds to set by itself later on is preferable. Line your waterline (the part of the skin that is close to your eyeball. Here are my favorites in black: FENTY BEAUTY - Flypencil Longwear Pencil Eyeliner PAT McGRATH LABS - Permagel Ultra Glide Eye Pencil 3CE - Super Slim Waterproof Eyeliner 2. Use A Good Brush and Powder to Smudge A proper tool and a well pigmented eyeshadow will help you achieve the best results. I use a micro-sized pencil brush or smudging brush like these: MORPHE - M515 Detail Crease SIGMA - E21 Smudge Brush And I also use ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette in the shade Noir(Black) Take your brush and apply a small amount of shadow onto the areas where you placed your eyeliner. Begin applying it with back and forth motions or circular motions. The idea is to increase the width of your eyeliner without creating harsh lines. The eyeshadow and blending will help you with two things: Set your eyeliner in place Diffuse the color outwards from your eye, thus creating more depth Slowly build up the color to your liking. 3. Reapply if needed. As you start blending, you may notice some pigment comes off the waterline. This is normal. Just reapply your eyeliner again and you should be good to go! TIPS: Have some MAC - MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ Finishing Mist on hand in case everything sets and it seems like it’s not budging anywhere. Spray some on your brush and tap it into the areas that need fixing and begin blending afterwards. It should be moveable again. BE LIGHT-HANDED. It’s easier to apply more product than to take away. Happy Smudging! Remember practice makes perfect! ❤️

Shimmer Eyeshadow Map for Small-Set Hooded Eyes!
Hey everyone! I love a good shimmer eyeshadow and I remember when I first got into eyeshadow...I had no idea what I was doing. LOL I hope this map helps those who have a similar eyeshape or who are struggling with placement/application of eyeshadows! For those of you who don’t know where to start with a “beginners” eyeshadow palette, I highly recommend Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette. It’ll help you experience what a “buttery” eyeshadow palette is, teach you about “fallout”, and pigmentations. I truly believe makeup is an experience and by learning about what you like and dislike you’ll know what you’re looking for on your next journey. The Soft Glam Palette has all these elements (being soft/buttery, occasional fall out, really awesome pigmentation), so it can give you an idea of what a good eyeshadow palette would potentially be and if you end up not liking it, again, you’ll know what to look for next time! The key is to start somewhere! Side note: “fallout” is not necessarily bad, because I feel like it’s good for a person to experience what it is. Not all palettes are created equal so by having fallout, you can learn how to adjust your techniques accordingly when you do encounter a palette that has it.Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Norvina Eyeshadow Palette 3CE - Velvet Lip Tint

hello everyone! today i wanted to do some space inspired makeup! i would say the makeup in my profile picture is more galaxy-space themed than this look, but this look is still really amazing in my opinion! it adds a pop of color to an otherwise boring neutral look🦋 for this tutorial, i used the huda beauty mercury retrograde palette! this palette is AMAZING. its so blendable, and the shimmer and pearlescent shades apply beautifully. it also has a glitter shade, and if you know me you know i cant live without glitter✨😊 i only wish it had one more thing- a nice bluish-purple matte shade. it would’ve really completed the palette! let me know what you think in the comments! follow if you enjoyed this tutorial 🪐✨ HUDA BEAUTY - Mercury Retrograde Eyeshadow Palette

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. 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
