Lillee Jean Soft Glam Bronzed Cut Crease Prom Makeup Tutorial 2016

            I went for a more “subtle” cream contouring effect today as I wasn’t digging my typical brightened highlight look, especially with such a eye catching illuminator the highlight should be as natural as possible! To reach that goal though it seems impossible since cream contouring molds our dream faces I simply used the shades Nude and Cinnamon provided by the ABH Cream Contour Kit, Cinnamon blends out like a bronzer and Nude blends in one shade lighter than my normal skin tone, it all works. Placement wise Nude was taken under my eyes in inverted triangles, down the bridge of my nose, across both jaw lines, on my chin as well as on my forehead using a cleaned Sephora Concealer Brush! Cinnamon was placed down the sides of my nose as well as in the hollows of my cheeks, on my jaw lines, and under my lips for added definition. Keep in mind these are MY IDEAL places to contour as well as highlight, many people love to do their forehead, since my face shape is oval-heart this is unnecessary for me, do what looks best for YOU! To blend in the creams I took my brand new Elf Ultimate Blending Brush and began to stipple in the creams starting from my jaw line up, I like to work in clockwise motions to ensure the MOST natural and bearable blend is created, we don’t wanna look like drag queens, just ourselves but better ;). Do be aware stippling motions create a much heavier coverage as opposed to straight out circular blending motions, both are acceptable however since this does have the concept of prom in mind I would recommend the first blending mechanism, unless you’re using a sponge, in that case go to town girl!

                          The products might seem completely overwhelming right now, but as the look progresses on you shall notice EACH product flows into each other! For example, Barcelona Beach is mixed with Peach Smoothie, thus making both one shade not two.  To begin the uber glamorous eye makeup I first started off with defining my brows using the ABH Dipbrow Pomade pot in Caramel! I gently outlined my top+bottom brows with a Morphe G11 brush then proceeded to connecting both lines at the tail end of my brow followed by a filling in of each brow using upward stroking motions to mimic REAL hair’s best :). For a priming base I suggest sticking to matte bone shades such as Bobbi Brown’s Cream Eyeshadow in Bone, ahh look at that same name hehe. I applied it all over my lids and smudged it up to my brow bone, excess product was dragged under my lower lash line using my pinky finger!



             This is not exactly a “cut crease” makeup look, but it follows the same ideals as one so you should treat it like an intensive smokey eye with an abrupt line difference! The first color added to my eyes is Birkin by Anastasia Beverly hills, this is the cut crease definer shade.  Using a cleaned  Sephora #20 brush I gently smudged the brush in the pan of shadow and proceeded to outlining the crease shape by moving ONE INCH up than my normal crease line, try to make this almost like winged eyeliner but from up above :)! Once I had the shade set I went into a mixture of Barcelona Beach and Peach Smoothie by Makeup Geek and smudged it ABOVE the line using a fluffy Sephora #27 Brush, it is SUPER risky using larger blending brushes with cut crease styles however this is a soft look so no intensity was needed at this point in the game. Switching to a darker brown, Mocha in specific, I then went with a dense blending brush (Mac 217 brush) and smudged it across Birkin to intensify up the shadow look, side to side motions were all that was used!

                    To start finishing up the eye makeup take a fluffy brush such as a Sephora #27 Brush and go into Blanc + Vanilla Bean shadows, soften the mixture on the brow bone and blend it lightly downwards this way a gradience is formed, this should really soften up the crease work! With that same brush I then went into the shade Shimma Shimma and gently blended it into the tear duct of my eye, this is a super stunning beige shade that compliments ANY eyeshadow look.  Lasttttt touches include the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and KoKo lashes in Goddess! Make sure for the mascara you REALLY smudge it across your lower lashes, as you smudge you’ll see it form a heavy black line that almost looks like you applied eyeliner there, this will “dramatize” your overall finish up.
