Smokey Green Cut-Crease Makeup Pictorial feat. Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette

Smokey Green Cut-Crease Makeup Pictorial

My schedule has been so hectic lately, so I haven’t had time to create any new makeup tutorials. I got the new Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette a few weeks ago (check out my review here) and have been feeling so inspired, and made it a priority to get a pictorial together for you using this palette. I don’t think I can ever get tired of a bold cut-crease — it’s my favorite type of makeup look to do, so that’s what I’m serving you today.

The tutorial:

Step 1: Apply a primer all over the eye area, then use a pointed eyeliner brush and the shade Mocha to sketch out a new crease line; use a light hand to draw a soft line first, then once the shape is to your liking, go back and deepen the color for more intensity.

Step 2: Take a small pointed blending brush with the shade Creamsicle and blend the color into the matte chocolate brown eyeshadow; concentrate the mustard yellow eyeshadow on top to the brown color.

Step 3: For more depth, use the same pointed eyeliner brush to apply the shade Chip onto the crease line and make sure to thoroughly blend all of the colors together; this will create a beautiful and intense light-to-dark gradient effect.

Step 4: Take a small flat concealer brush with a little bit of concealer and trace the concealer underneath the crease line to clean up imperfections for a clean, sharp look.

Step 5: Apply the shade Diva onto the inner and outer lid with the pointed eyeliner brush, but make sure to leave a negative space between the lid and crease colors; create a wing at the outer corner to parallel with the crease line, then gently blend the inner upper edges of the green eyeshadow inwards on the lid to create a diffused effect.

Step 6: Blend a tiny dot of concealer onto the center of the lid, then use a small eyeshadow brush to pat a matte setting powder onto the area for a smokey halo finish.

Step 7: Use a round pencil brush to smoke out the lower lash line with Diva, then blend Creamsicle underneath for even more intensity.

Step 8: Highlight the brow bone and tear duct with the shade Enlight, then deepen the outer lower lash line with Abyss for more depth; tightline the upper water line and lash line with a black eyeliner pencil, then apply on a pair of voluminous false eyelashes to complete the smokey eye look.

Voilà!
