'Metallic Grass Cut-Crease' Look

'Metallic Grass Cut-Crease' Look

This look was inspired by the lovely and talented Nireyna on Live Journal. Here's the inspiration - HERE. It is a pretty intense cut-crease look and is not meant for everyday wear. I had so much fun doing this...wish I had more free time to do these intense looks.


I started off with NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied MAC Layin' Low Paintpot (matte beige) all over my lid and on my brow bone as my primary base. Sonia Kashuk Dome Blending Brush

To outline the cut-crease I used Pure Luxe Sin Liner (matte black) mixed with MAC Water Based Mixing Medium. MAC 210 Precise Eye Liner Brush & MAC 231 Small Shader Brush
For the crease I started with Inglot #58 Eyeshadow (matte vibrant green). Sonia Kashuk Dome Blending Brush
On the browbone area I used Inglot #57 Eyeshadow (matte bright green) Sonia Kashuk Dome Blending Brush
I followed this with Sugarpill Absinthe Loose Eyeshadow (shimmery sour apple green). Sonia Kashuk Dome Blending Brush
For my highlight I used MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow (shimmery champagne). MAC Large 252 Shader Brush
To deepen the crease I used Inglot #384 Eyeshadow (matte dark green w/ sparkles) and Magnolia Makeup #009 Just Black Pigment (matte black). MAC 242 Shader Brush

For my lower lashline I used Inglot #58 Eyeshadow, Inglot #57 Eyeshadow and Magnolia Makeup #009 Just Black Pigment. MAC 242 Shader Brush
On the outer lid I applied MAC Silver Pigment (metallic silver) mixed with MAC Water Based Mixing Medium. MAC 242 Shader Brush
On the inner lid and tearduct I used NYX Baby Blue Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil topped with Magnolia Makeup #125 Chlorine Pigment (matte light blue). Too Faced Small Eyeshadow Teddy Bear Brush

My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud and NARS Coconut Grove Eyeshadow (matte blackened brown). Paula Dorf Eye Definer Flat Top Brush

I lined my upper lashline with Wet 'n' Wild Gel Eyeliner in Black. MAC 266 Small Angle Brush
I lined my lower waterline with L'Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black. Stila #28 Smudge Pot Brush
I used Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara for my lashes and added Beautee Senses Adevnturous False Eyelashes for effect.


For my lips I used MUFE #40 Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick (creamy orange) and MUFE #39 Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick (creamy coral) topped with Too Faced Mirror Shine Lipgloss (clear).


I primed my skin with Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrè Nourishing Moisturizer and Tarte ReCreate™ Silicone-Free Primer. I used MAC Pro Longwear Foundation in NC45 - Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush - for my face and set my t-zone with MAC Blot Powder in Dark. I used MUFE #14 Full Cover Concealer - Fingers : ) under my eyes set with Benefit Powderflage - Beauty Blender Sponge

I used MUFE #22 Sculpting Blush (shimmery orange peach) for my cheeks - MAC 129 Powder/Blush Brush and MUFE #2 Sculpting Kit for contour - Sephora Professional #49 Blush Brush and MAC Deep Dark Natural/Shimmer MSF (shimmery gold) for highlight - MAC 130 Short Duo Fiber Brush
