I’ve been experimenting more with my ABH Modern Renaissance palette (which you can hear more about here), and I decided to try out a half cut crease using this palette. I want to share with you the finished look and a brief process of how I achieved it. Overall, I’m very happy with how it turned out, but I wish the inner half of my lid came out more shimmery! Here is the look:
To achieve this look, I used the following colours from my Modern Renaissance palette (highlighted in blue):
- I used Tempera on my whole lid to set my eyeshadow primer.
- Buon Fresco and Antique Bronze as transition colours.
- Love Letter as my crease colour, also for my lower lash line.
- Cyrpus Umber for my outer corner and for more definition in my crease, also for the outside of my lower lash line.
- Vermeer as my lid colour to create the cut crease, only going about 2/3 of the way across my lid.
- Lastly, I used Love Letter once more to blend into Vermeer and create the ombre half cut crease look.
Before I applied Vermeer, I carved out my lid with my concealer and set it with Tempera. Then, I wet my brush and applied Vermeer. I wish that Vermeer came out brighter and more shimmery. I wanted to use only colours from this palette, but in the future I think I will try out a more shimmery eyeshadow for a more dramatic effect.
Other products that I used for this look are:
- Smashbox Photo Finish Primer in Light
- Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation
- Smashbox Concealer
- Benefit Hoola Bronzing Powder
- L’Oréal The One Sweep Sculpting Blush Duo (only the blush)
- NYX Highlighter from the Love Contours All Palette (see a look from this palette here)
- Urban Decay Primer Potion Original
- Kat von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper
- Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara (read a review here)
- Black eyeshadow from the Smashbox Full Exposure Palette
- NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Cherry Skies (read a review here)
- L’Oréal Colour Riche Lip Liner
That’s all! Thank you for reading this, I hope you enjoyed this look. If you want to see another look I have done using similar products but different eyeshadow palettes, check out this post. To help me find a new product for future cut creases, my question for this post is:
What shimmery eyeshadows do you use for your cut creases?
