Make-up Look: Soft Cut-Crease

So this is how I like to do my eye make-up recently: Just a simple cut crease by using only some eyeshadows of the orignial Naked palette. So let's begin. As a base for my foundation is used the HydraQuench Cream by Clarins to hydrate my skin. I'm currently not using any particular face primer as I don't feel to need it. For liquid foundation I used the Nude Magique Eau de Teint by L'Oréal and worked it into my skin with a buffer brush. I'm in the shade 120. Then I applied the True Match concealer by L'Oréal in the shade Vanilla and the Eraser Dark Circles by Maybelline in the color light as a highlighter. For contouring is used the Hoola bronzer by Benefit. To set my make-up I used the Anti Shine Mattifying Powder by Isadora in the shade Matte Blonde. This has SPF 15. For blush I applied the one from the Naked On the Run palette by Urban Dekay.

Now to the eyes. For the eye make-up I worked only with colors from the original Naked palette by Urban Dekay. I used a soft dense brush to put Virgin as a highlighter under my eyebrows. The next step was to apply the blending color. I used tape to create a sharp edge. Just run some tape directly underneath your eye from about the center. If you don't like putting tape on your face, you can use a credit card, a business card or whatever you have. The shade I used for that is Half Baked. Then I filled in the space right above my crease and towards the egde of my eye and created a little triangle/v-shape. To deepen the crease I applied Smog and a little bit of Darkhorse, I focused towards the edge to define it a little bit more. I applied Naked all over my lid. On my bottom lash line I put some of Smog and blended it with Half Baked. Once I was done with the eyeshadows, I put on my eyeliner. You can use the created crease as a guide to apply your eyeliner. I used The Curve by NYX. For mascara I put on some coats of the Perversion Mascara by Urban Dekay. For my eyebrows I used my eyebrow pencil by Manhattan in the shade Blondy Brow. To finish the look I used a NYX butter gloss in the color Créme Brulee.

I really hope you like the look. Which are your favorite eyeshadows by Urban Dekay?
