'Velvet Coral' Look

'Velvet Coral' Look

This look was created using a simple technique to get the cut-crease effect. It's really easy compared to other techniques I have seen and it takes a lot less time to achieve. I'll do a tutorial of the technique so you see what I mean.


I started off with NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base all over my lid up to the brow bone. I also applied MAC Layin' Low Paintpot (matte creamy beige) all over my lid up to my brow bone as my primary base.

To start off the look I used MAC Velvet moss Eyeshadow (matte moss green) in the crease.
I added a bit of MAC Bottle Green Eyeshadow (matte dark moss green) to the outer V to deepen.
I used MUFE #9 Aqua Cream (light coral) to shape the lid and define the crease beneath the green colors.
On the inner lid and tear duct I applied MAC Blanc Type Eyeshadow (matte ivory).
Next the middle of the lid I applied MAC Dusty Coral Pigment (matte coral).
On the outer lid I applied MAC Hot Hot Hot Eyeshadow (matte red coral).
For the blending on the brow bone I used Smashbox Nude Eyeshadow (matte nude).
For highlight I used MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow (shimmery champagne).

My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud.

I lined my upper lashline with Stila Stay All Day Eyeliner in Black.
I lined my lower waterline with Loreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black.
I smudged my lower lashline with MAC Landscape Green Pigment (matte grass green).
I used Covergirl Lashblast Mascara for my lashes and added Beautee Senses Demi Pixie Lashes for effect.
I used MAC Syrup Lipstick topped with MAC Spite Lipglass.


I prepped my skin with Stila One Step Primer.
I used NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Tahoe with MUFE Full Cover Concealer in #12 under my eyes. I set with MAC Blot Powder in Dark.
I used Illamasqua Expose Blush for my cheeks.

  8. Thanks so much my lovelies!!! I'm working on the tut for this one this week. I just need to make sure it's under 10 minutes. Wish me luck.

    AS for the eyeshadow collection....hahahaha...u guys want me to admit that I have a problem don't u?? LOL! Once I start taking inventory I may need to go to rehab...

    But all joking aside...I will have to break up a collection post/video into separate parts for each brand otherwise it will get overwhelming and besides each little nugget will want their 15 minutes right?
