Pick up your fluffy brush and a little more of the pink and use to blend out the brown and add back any of the pink color you may have lost.  Use a small brush and apply a small amount of the silver color Pistol Pistol to the inner 1/3 of the crease. Use the white color Disco White and use under the browbone and as a highlight and pop a little in the inner corner as well. With a small brush, run an intense black like Makeup Geek’s Corrupt under the eye keeping the color close to the lashes. Go over the edge of the black with the shimmery teal shade Fiji Mermaid by Glamour Doll Eyes. You want to have a slight smokey effect under the eye.

This fun and colorful look is not for the faint of heart, but for our more adventurous Makeup Geek’s this is for you! The artist here used Manhattan Multi and Intense eyeshadows to get the look so we are going to offer some Makeup Geek alternative so you can have the same look. To begin, pat a small amount of Shimma Shimma on the inner corner and on the upper 1/3 of the eye. Bring the same shade under the inner 1/3 of the eye as well. With the MUG Eye Shader Brush, go in with the color Cupcake and pat the color where the Shimma Shimma left off going 1/3 of the way making sure to blend the lines where the colors meet making sure to keep all the colors below the crease. Repeat the same process using the shade Simply Marlena. Once again make sure to blend the colors where the two shades meet. Now switch to a small dome brush like the MUG Outer V Brush and with the color Sensuous, place on the last 1/3 of the eyelid creating a “wing” at the end of the eye. Bring the color in on the crease stopping where the Shimma Shimma began. Make sure to blend out any harsh lines left behind. Use the color Corrupt to line the lower lash-line coming in to where your lashes begin. You may have to go back and touch up the Shimma Shimma. Wing the color out from under the eye. With a white liner pencil, or with a small brush and the Makeup Geek gel liner in Cottontail, draw a “wing” between the black under the eye and the Sensuous coming in 1/2 of the way. Place a small line of the gel liner in Electric under the lash-line on the inner part of the eye. Curl your lashes and add a couple coats of your favorite mascara. To finish the look, add 4 pink stones to the upper eye above the white line.

Make up by kamini

This daring and striking look is sure to garner the best of attention and a stunning example of a perfect cut crease. To begin, use a very small brush. An angled eyeliner brush works great as it allows you to more easily follow the natural curvature of the eye. Take a small brush of your choice and the severe black Corrupt and draw a line slightly above the crease following the natural curve of the eye. Fill in the outer 1/3 of the eye with the same intense black and create a winged effect on the end of the eye. If you need help creating that crisp line at the edge of the eye, place a piece of scotch tape along the corner of the eye and bring the color up the edge of the tape.  Flip the brush on its side where it lays flat against your eye and gently pull the eyeshadow upward until you get a faded effect. Don’t worry if you don’t master this right away, for many people a cut crease is one of the hardest to perfect. Now go in with a flat, stiff brush like the Makeup Geek Eye Shader Brush and gently pat the color Sensuous on the lid below the cut crease leaving the inner 1/3 of the eye open. Make sure to blend where the two colors meet. Finish filling in the inner part of the eye with a shimmery color like Bling or Shimma Shimma. If you used tape on your eye go ahead and remove it to reveal a sharp line. Use Corrupt to line under the eye starting at where you lashes begin and allowing the line to thicken as you extend it to create a wing on the bottom. Make sure NOT to connect the upper and lower wings, you want a space left between them. Now go in with a small dome brush and apply Sensuous over the edge of the black giving the eye a smokey appearance. Place the same shimmery color you used on the inner 1/3 of the eye under the eye to where the black begins. Line the upper and lower waterlines with the gel liner in Immortal, curl your lashes and add you best mascara to finish.

Using a combination of Sugarpill and Makeup Geek products, the artist here created a perfect example of a colorful cut crease. To begin, use a very small brush like the MUG Detail Brush. This is a dual ended brush and works perfect for a look like this. Use the “pointed” end and draw a line slightly above the crease with the gel liner in Immortal. Bring the line in only 1/2 of the way and extend the wing on the end upward. Wipe off your brush and go in with the gel liner in Fame and pick up where the Immortal left off and bring the line in almost all the way leaving a small space in the inner corner. Flip the brush to the other end to the small, flat end of the brush and with it laying on it’s side, drag the black liner upward slightly. Go in with Sugarpill’s Poison Plum and use to help drag the black liner upward. Wipe off that end of the brush and go in with Makeup Geek’s Nautica and use to pull the blue liner upward giving it a smokey appearance. Use a small dome brush to feather out any harsh lines.  Again, wipe off that end of the brush and apply Mermaid to where the blue ended and bring into the inner corner. With a flat, stiff brush like the Makeup Geek Eye Shader Brush, gently pat Sugarpill’s Buttercupcake over the lower lid making sure to keep the color below the crease lines. If you do happen to get color on the lines simply go back with a small brush and touch up with a matching shade. Use the shade Flamepoint and pat over the inner and outer 1/3 of the eye leaving the yellow visible in the middle of the eyelid. Use the black gel liner in Immortal to create a winged line on the top of the eyelid extending to where the wing from the crease ended but not connecting them. Place the same color under the eye starting half way and coming out to meet up with the wing. Create a “beak” with the black liner in the middle of the under eye where the black liner began and line the outer 1/2 of the waterline with the black. Next, go in with the orange color Flamepoint again and place between the wing from the lower eyelid and the wing from the crease. Pat a small amount of the yellow Buttercupcake under the eye where the black left off and bring the color all the way inward. Pat the same color on the remaining waterline. Curl your lashes and add a good mascara and a set of spikey lashes like the Sugarpill’s False lashes in Precious.

st-patricks-day-small-550x523

St. Patrick’s Day has never looked so amazing! This striking look is ideal for not only the greenest day of the year, but leave off the clover and you have the perfect green smokey eye. The artist here used a combination of Lime Crime, Makeup Geek and Sugarpill cosmetics to obtain this stunning look. Begin by placing a piece of scotch tape to the outer part of the eye to create a crisp line. You can go back afterward and soften this with a Q-Tip. Using a small dome brush like the MUG Pointed Crease Brush, go in with Makeup Geek’s Envy and place the color along the edge of the tape bringing the color in softly ABOVE the crease. Place the same color on the inner part of the eye and bring the color up to meet what was place above the crease line. You are basically creating a snowglobe or sandwich look with the crease part raised higher than usual. Smudge the same green under the entire length of the eye. Wipe off that same brush and go in with Appletini, a soft green color and blend it above the crease to feather the color out. Use the same color and place on the inner and outer corners where the Envy left off bringing the color in 1/3 of the way. Make sure to blend the colors where meet so there are no harsh lines. You want to create a soft gradient effect from darkest to lightest all around the eye. Use the same soft green to place over the edge of the Envy under the eye to help smudge the color and give it a smokey effect. Using a flat, stiff brush like the MUG Eye Shader Brush, go in with White Lies and gently pat the color over the middle of the eye bringing the color up past the crease. Use the same white under the browbone as a highlight and feather out any lines left behind. Now for the fun part, go in with Lime Crime’s eyeliner in Lunar Sea and create a line between the white eyeshadow and the Envy bringing the color into the inner corner. Go ahead if you used tape and gently remove it at this time. Mix a small amount of Lime Crime’s Citreuse and Suparpill’s Goldilux Pigment to create a glittery liner and line the upper lash-line starting at the middle of the lashes and winging out the end. Create another small wing under the eye beginning at the corner. Don’t connect the two glitter wings, leave a space between them and place a small line of white with the Lunar Sea. Use Lime Crime’s black shadow in Lotus Noir to darken under the eye right bear the lash-line and to create a “peak” in the inner corner. Line the upper and lower waterlines with a black liner. Pat a small amount of the Goldilux pigment over the black “peak”. Curl your lashes and add a couple of coats of your favorite mascara. To complete the look, add a pair of spiky lashes like the Ardell #102 Demies.

Make sure to keep the majority of the color on the outer part of the eye allowing it to fade as it comes inward. Use Sensuous to line the under the eye coming in the rest of the way. Use a clean fluffy brush to blend out any harsh lines on the upper eyelid. Use a flat brush to gently pat on Shimma Shimma over the rest of the lower lid. Create a winged effect on the upper eyelid with Lime Crime’s eyeliner in Lazuli. use a white liner on the lower waterline, here the artist used the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk. To finish, curl your lashes and add a lengthening mascara.

This hot summer look is complimented by the cool blue tones of the ocean. Together they make a look that is sure to intrigue all those around you. Begin by using a fluffy dome brush like the Makeup Geek Soft Dome Brush and sweeping the color Vanilla Bean over the entire eyelid. Using a flat brush, like the MUG Eye Shader Brush. place the color Mango Tango over the outer 1/2 of the eye coming up slightly past the crease. Next, use a smaller dome brush and place the color Chickadee over the outer corner of the eye and blend inward and use the color to blend out any lines left by the Mango Tango. Use a fluffy brush to blend out any harsh lines. Use the MUG Outer V Brush to apply a small amount of Cocoa Bear to the outer v part of the eye and give depth to the look. Use a smudger brush to apply a small amount of Bada Bing over the outer part of the lower eyelid coming in 1/3 of the way. Use the color Appletini under the eye coming in very little. Follow up using Mermaid and then use Neptune under the rest of the eye. Pat the color Poolside over the lower waterline of the eye. For the dramatic winged liner, used the gel liner in Electric and create a winged liner on the upper lash-line. Bring the liner to a point on the inner corner creating a sort of “beak”.  Curl your lashes, add mascara and a pair of wispy lashes like the Ardell False Lashes #110.

I love these looks! Of course you have to be a makeup artist to pull some of them off but I will give them a try on June 8 for my makeup challenge!
