Cut That Crease

It is common for people to think that when they need to add some pop or flare to a look, it has to be with their outfit. However, it is possible to do the same with your makeup. It has the ability to draw the same attention, if not more. One important thing to remember when doing makeup is that you want to accentuate natural features rather than attempting to look “fake.” A foundation must match and complement your skin as well as provide full coverage, creating a clean canvas. This Fashionista is rocking the Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation. In addition, a simple, defined cut-crease eye shadow like this can draw an immense amount of attention to your eyes and helps them stand out. This can be done with any eye shadow but this look was specifically done with the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette.

Always remember that your eyebrows should also resemble a natural look. It can be easy to tweeze away to pencil-thin brows but that is now a thing of the past. It is becoming more common for individuals to want thicker, fuller brows using procedures such as microblading. This consists of reconstructing and defining the perfect brows, hair by hair, with a blade and semi-permanent dye. Luckily for this Fashionista, she was blessed with perfectly full eyebrows. In order to shape them to resemble siblings and not twins (another important eyebrow tip), the Maybelline Brow Drama Pro Palette was used.

Lastly, one big makeup trend that leaves individuals itching for more, but very impatient, is contouring. It has the ability to do wonders for some people but to those who can’t grasp the technique or simply don’t have the time, always remember that “less is more.” A slight cheek contour still has the ability to add dimension to your facial structure. This look was specifically done with Urban Decay Naked Illuminated for contour and the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Highlighter for the high points of the cheek bones.

With these helpful tips, this look is obtainable by anyone and with any makeup product. This look can be perfect for a night out with friends or even for those summer cookouts with family. Cut that crease and let those brows go.
