Purple Glitter Cut Crease Makeup
Hi guys! My friend let me borrow her Violet Voss glitters over the weekend. 😍 Can we just take a moment to appreciate this purple glitter in 'Aurora'?! (#icanteven.) I am so proud of this makeup look especially since it came from a place of pure creativity. Keep reading to learn how to do this purple glitter cut crease makeup.
If you like this look, but don't know how to do a cut crease, YouTube beauty blogger, Chrisspy, has the best how-to cut crease videos. Both this video and this video plus a looot of practice helped me get this technique down.
After priming my eyes and setting it with a little translucent powder, I lightly cut myself a new crease using Heirloom from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Shadow Couture palette. After blending, I realized that that color looked more black than purple so I tried to lighten the crease with Maybelline's Color Tattoo in Tough as Taupe using a tiny flat brush. Then I used Mac's eye shadow in Sketch to set the cream color and deepen my new crease.
To prep the eye for glitter, I used Mac's Beautiful Iris eye shadow as a base. Then I applied the Violet Voss glitter adhesive to my eye in 1/3 sections. Starting on the inner corner, I lightly tapped a flat eye shadow brush into the glitter and lightly started tapping it onto my eye. It's so easy to go ham with this glitter, but you must restrain! Once you start getting crazy, the crease will get messy and then it'll no longer look cut, so take your time.
This next step depends on your preference on how defined you want that glitter to look in your crease. I like mine to look blended into my crease but still have that definition of a crease. To do this, you'll want to lightly soften the edge of your glitter into the crease using a fluffy brush.
Once you've reached your desired look, go ahead and draw your winged liner and apply some dramatic false lashes. These two steps really bring the look together, because as you can see, your eye can look naked without it.
Now that you're done with the eyes, you can finish up your face. Below is a full list of products used for this look. I hope you enjoyed this spring purple glitter glam.
