HOODED EYE DAYTIME CUT CREASE FEAT. ZOEVA, MAKEUP GEEK, URBAN DECAY, MAC & MORE

Spring is definitely on my mind. With more sunny days comes more energy to play & today I'm coming to you with a more defined daytime makeup. Cut Crease is a beautiful way to make your eyes look more defined and almost of an almond shape. It's not an easy task to do on a hooded eye but it gives you an illusion of a bigger lid so you can finally play with eyeliner more :) If you'd like to know how I created this look, please continue to read :)



BASE:

I wanted some definition on the eyes so I needed my base to be flawless. I used Bourjois City Radiance in Ivory and buffed it in using a flat top brush. For my under eyes, I used my trusty Collection Lasting Perfection in 01. I set the base with MAC Bone Beige from Sculpt & Shape Powder duo

For my contour I used Emphasise again from MAC Sculpt & Shape Powder. It's not my favourite contour shade but I wanted to give some of my forgotten bits a go :) For my cheeks I used Estee Lauder Signature Silky Powder Blush in 21 Peach Nuance. I really love the light effect if gives my cheeks, perfect for spring :) I skipped highlighter, instead applying a little extra of Bone Beige on the high points of my face,creating matte strobing effect. 

LIPS:

I used Gwen Stefani for Urban Decay lip liner in Ex-Girlfriend and the accompanying lipstick, also Ex-Girlfriend. It's surprisingly well lasting and both work magically together. Love this nude <3

BROWS:

I used my trusty Freedom Makeup Brow Pomade in Taupe to define my brows slightly.




EYES:

I used MAC Paint Pot in Painterly as a base and dusted Stitch by Stitch  from Zoeva enTaupe palette to set and to help with blending.

I wanted to try cut crease for a bit and having practise forever I finally came up with my version of it, perfect for anyone with hooded eyes. I started by lining just above the crease with Makeup Geek Bitten and created the line where I wanted my cut crease to be, I then added Cocoa Bear to soften it up and at the same time to create more depth. I then took a little of Creme Brûlée to soften the top of cut crease. I applied my favourite Eye of Horus Liquid Define in Babylon Brown and created a defined line going towards my cut crease. I cleaner the 'middle' in between cut crease and liner with Spun Pearl from Zoeva enTaupe and the same shade landed in the inner corner. On top of my newly created lid space I added Makeup Geek In The Spotlight. I finished the look with two coats of a new mascara I'm testing, Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama.

For the bottom lid I used Makeup Geek Peach Smoothie, then added Bitten and Cocoa Bear to add more definition. To combine the mattes with the inner corner I used Handmade from Zoeva

There you have it, a completed look and my first ever public cut crease. There's still so much to improve on but I'm happy with the results so far. Hope you enjoy my first take on spring makeup and I'll see you Monday with a  new post. Stay warm & safe <3


Thank you for reading,
Love

  1. Love this look Dorota! And the lipstick looks great on you! My eyes are not so much hooded but quite deep set and any cut crease eye look is a bit pointless cause it's not visible unless I close my eyes and also the shades blend into each other messing up with the cut crease :( Can I have the perfect Instagram-y eyes? lol! x
