Lillee Jean Dramatic Deep Navy & Cream Cut Crease Makeup Tutorial 2016

Whew, I’m on a ROLL today! As always, from my sneak peak posts, here is the final tutorial. I wanted to try out something I’ve never done which is color blocking, in a complementary mannerism. It sounds a tad wonky, but essentially this means to choose drastically different colors, that sorta fit together, such as bright cream, and deep grape with navy! Color blocking is generally two bold shades, but I’m taking it from the approach of bolds contrasting light bolds. This is a bit more complex than my typical smokey eyes, since it was a free hand done tutorial with small details that truly count, but with the right mindset, and with adequate time I’m sure anyone of any skill level could complete the eye makeup flawlessly. Hopefully you cuties enjoy, it seems many of you have been waiting all night for this post! Cut crease, here the love bunnies come.

It’s not the face makeup that consumes the full 32 minutes, it’s actually the eye makeup, although it typically is time constraining for me! As simple as it might seem, just a flick of blue, one must really put the pedal to the metal and blend slowly, otherwise it’ll be too disbursed, or not as defined. Yes, I am mentally preparing you all, MWAHAH! Since I was planning to use my Cover Fx G20 Foundation for cut crease clean up, I decided it’d be smarter to use it as an all over base, too. With that being said, right after priming my skin with the Marc Jacobs Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer, I clicked open the Total Cover Cream Foundation container, and firmly streaked my Morphe M439 brush bristles across the circular cream layer. Once it appeared that an adequate amount of product adhered to the bristles, I began buffing G20 onto my face starting from areas needing the most coverage that being on my forehead, to areas that need a sheer coating for a color balance, my cheeks. Cream foundation tends to stump most as it CAN cake up, and CAN look oily as the day progresses, but I’ve found the Cover Fx foundation line to be flawless, and always yield me a creamy complexion! I personally enjoy makeup that blends in, so while still having foundation on that M439 brush I swirled into Boho Chic by Nyx Cosmetics, and lightly stippled it onto the apples of my cheeks as well as up towards my hairline! The ratio of foundation to blush should be 2:1, thus making it a hint of color. You’re welcome for the tip ;)!
