black cut crease make up tutorial

I've always admired this make up look when I've seen some guys wearing this, but it was for the Tammerfest when I first time recreated this look for myself. I absolutely love it, it's my favourite make up look of all the looks I've ever done. Long false lashes would have made this look even better though.

Hopefully you like the tutorial! If you try this look out, I'd love to see the results! :)

How to achieve this look:

1. Apply primer, foundation or whatever base you usually use for your make up. Then apply white eyeshadow all over the lid.

2. Take a black eyeliner pencil and draw a line following your crease.

3. Take a brush and blend the colour outwards.

4. Apply black eyeshadow and blend the colour outwards. (instead of applying black now, you can use whatever colour you want!)

5. Add white eyeshadow to the brow bone and blend it with the black colour so there's no any harsh lines.

6. Line the waterline and the upper and the lower lashlines with a black eyeliner.

7. Apply mascara and fill in the eyebrows.

The final look:

Products used:
1) H&M concealer 
2) H&M - Kitty Beach Party blue eyeshadow3) Wet N' Wild - kajal & eyeliner black black
4) Bobby Brown - charcoal 12 black eyeshadow
5) Max Factor - False Lash Effect mascara
6) Ludinelle - khol pencil, brun syrien 04
7) Rimmel London - stay matte pressed powder 001

  26. I've wanted to try a 1960s look like this for a while, I think it looks great on you - it really suits your eye shape and makes them stand out x

  27. Sounds easy, could try it out! I think too I should experiment a bit with my festival look but not sure yet what I'll do exactly :)

  28. Its lovely! :D I think the black on the crease is such a cool idea, you're so so creative! Every time I see a new look you've done I can't help but wish I had creased eyes too, yours look so good! :D
