FOTD: Simple Cut Crease Makeup

I am not blessed with a defined crease and it doesn't really bother me that much but sometimes it's just nice to see a defined crease :). So today's FOTD is a simple cut crease eye makeup. The shades I used are from my ELF 32 Piece Warm Eyeshadow Palette. I'm such a sucker for neutral shades because it's very easy to pull off and very wearable. I only used 4 shadows on this look and kept it very simple. I did this look early this week and only remembered to make a post of it today. 

Cutting and defining the crease is very easy. You can make it appear stronger or softer depending on how you want it to look. I started with priming my eyes and applying my transition color on my crease and slightly above it to make the blending process easy. Next I applied a medium brown shadow on my crease and blended it well. Slowly build up the color until you achieve the definition that you want on your crease. If you don't have a crease, place the shadow where you feel your eye socket sinking in just below your brow bone. Once done apply your lid color and blend it well so there are no harsh edges. Add the highlight color on the brow bone and then apply cream eyeliner to define the eyes. Now curl your lashes, apply mascara, blush, and lipstick and you're done!

I was suffering from flu when I did this look early this week and I think you can tell from my photos. So I changed my lip color from a nude pink to a shiny red to pick me up a bit. Normally when I'm sick I tend to wear bright lips to jazz up my face and make me look more refined and lively as opposed to sick and worn-out, and I think it worked :). You can add false lashes and eyeliner on the bottom lash line to transform this makeup to an evening look. 

Time for me to go to sleep now. You all have a great and blessed Sunday everybody. Take care and I'll ttyl!
