Golden, Peach, Pink, Red & Brown Cut Crease + Glitter Liner Makeup Look/Tutorial with Aromaleigh

So here's a cut crease tutorial. I'm going to do another more dramatic tutorial later as I wanted to start you off with a lighter version of the cut crease. There are different ways that work better for each person attempting to do a cut crease. I have a very defined crease and I follow the natural shape of mine. If yours is not very defined or you don't have much of a crease at all, you can use a pencil or shadow and a liner brush to draw a line for your desired crease shape. Everyone's eyes are shaped differently so you will want to play with yours to find what works for you. This tutorial will show you how I sometimes do mine. It may work for you, it may not.
So here's the look!

 I realize my lashes look insane...

Ha! How creepy! I was trying to take a pic without flash to show the sparkles (obviously didn't work!) but you can see my face in my eye! Heh heh! It's a reflection from my vanity mirror.

Click below for picture tutorial.

 Apply a very tiny amount of Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-Gel (or whatever anti-crease primer you like) to the upper lid with ring finger, let it set about 30 seconds. Then apply Detrivore Eye Primer on top and the lower lash line (it's sticky, a little shimmery and makes eyeshadow more bold) using the ring finger as well.

 Take a brush like MAC 217 (or any shader/blender brush you like) and apply Aromaleigh - Snow just below the eyebrow and blend downward into the crease.

 Apply Urban Decay - Rockstar to form a wing starting at the outer lower lash line. Don't worry about making it perfect, it will be covered up with shadow later.

 Take a brush like MAC 239 (or any shader brush you like) and apply Aromaleigh - Pass the Tarts to the outer half of the upper lid by patting.

 Take a brush like MAC 239 (or any shader brush you like) and apply Aromaleigh - Hearts a' Plenty to the inner half of the upper lid by patting and sweeping outward to blend with Pass the Tarts.

 To do the crease I used Coastal Scents Sable Contour Brush. It's tapered to a point.

 Apply Aromaleigh - Temper, Temper to the crease using a tapered crease brush, keeping the point of the brush aimed downward into the crease at all times. Start light and go heavier as needed.

 In a windshield wiper motion, sweep the brush back and forth keeping the point aimed down into the crease.

 Using the same brush and technique, apply Stars Makeup Haven - Smoke and Mirrors on top of Temper, Temper.

 Then take a flat, angled taklon liner brush and apply Stars Makeup Haven - Smoke and Mirrors at the very edge of the cut crease to make it sharper and also apply over the Rockstar liner.

 Soften above the crease by blending with a good blending brush like MAC 217.

 Apply Aromaleigh - Hearts a' Plenty to lower lash line with MAC 228 and apply Aromaleigh - But This is My Dream to the inner V by patting with MAC 228.

 Mix Aromaeligh - Salome glitter with Graftobian Glitter Glue and apply to the lash line winging out. Depending on how you mix it, it could be very opaque or the glitter can apply vary sparse. If it's too sparse, then you can just pat the loose glitter on top and it will turn out the same as mine.

Apply your fav mascara to the outer half of upper lashes only. I used Cover Girl Volume exact mascara in Very Black 

 Apply TKB - Red Sparks to the outer lower eye socket area by patting it on.

Here's the rest of what is on my face:

Eyebrows: Ardell eyebrow powder in soft black (applied with MAC 266)

Lips: Chapstick (I guess I've been in a chapstick mode...)

Face: Skin MD Shielding lotion
Physicians Formula Healthy Wear SPF 50 Powder in Translucent Light (applied using a flocked sponge by patting then blending) 
AL You're a Doll! Gothic Lolita Rouge in Corset (applied to cheeks with a small angled blush brush)
