My last post was a First Impression of the Ardere 'Natural to Night' Eyeshadow Palette, which you can read here if you missed it. Spoiler alert - I love it! Since that post went live, I have been playing around with the palette and I thought that I would share with you a wearable and easy to follow golden brown cut crease eye look, created using just the one palette.
The whole look in natural lighting before I realised I had forgotten to put on mascara!
This eye look follows a brown winged line, which is then connected all the way to the inner corner, just above the crease.
Step 1 - Apply a primer to conceal any veins and redness, and to ensure the eyeshadow stays in place. I used MAC Paintpot in 'Painterly'.
Step 2 - Apply the shade 'Peachy' all over the lid to set the primer, and then concentrate it in to the crease and slightly above, to start defining the crease. The trick is to apply just a little product on to the brush, and blend it multiple times. You can always add more product, but taking it off is much tricker!
Step 3 - Apply the shade 'Tea Time' to the crease, starting from the outer corner and working it all the way to the inner corner.
Step 4 - Create a winged line with the shade 'Stylish', and connect it to the crease via one thin line
Step 5 - Apply the shade 'Date Night' all over the lid, concentrating it more on the inner corner, and centre of the eyelid.
Step 6 - Ensure that the crease stays quite defined, but blend the shades 'Peachy', 'Tea Time' and 'Stylish' together so that they join together and integrate to create an ombre effect.
Step 6 - Run 'Date Night' under the inner half of the eye, and 'Stylish' under the outer half and blend in to the wing.
Step 7 - Apply 'Peachy' above the cut crease and along the winged line to ensure it stays defined.
Step 8 - Apply 'Candlelight' under the brow bone and on the very inner corner for an extra sparkle.
Step 9 - Curl eyelashes and apply mascara - I used Too Faced 'Better Than Sex'.
The whole makeup look in artificial lighting, and I now have mascara on too. As you can see, the cut crease gives a slightly different eye look to normal and draws a lot more focus to the eyes, but it is still definitely wearable.
The eye look under flash. Love how this eyeshadow palette's glitter shades are so pigmented!
Would you try this eyeshadow look?
