Warm Crease Smokey Eye












No matter how much I try new looks. Warms & Neutrals will always be my go to colours. This is a very awaited beauty post, since I was waiting for my new Coastal Scents palette to come, I received it yesterday & I couldn't stop playing with it all day long.

One look that has been trending recently is the 'cut crease' and I definitely wanted to try it out since I have so many blending shade options in this palette. 

These colours compliment the Indian skin tone so well. After I was done creating my neutral eye look, I kept the face makeup also very warm. Slightly bronzed cheeks and a blush nude lip. Also I said goodbye to my adored highlighter. I thought of keeping this look quite matte. Which is a good surprise once in a while. 

The Eyes
- I started with a clean base, primed with my Mac concealer. 

-I went in with the colour No.3 with a big fluffy brush. This is a perfect 'camel' tone transition shade. 

-After the blending, I took the colour No.4 on a small pencil brush and started deepening the crease. 

-I went back & forth with colour no.3 & 4 Blending it really well to give it that smokey effect.

- I then took colour No.1 & 2 on a flat brush and placed it on the lid, very close to the lash line. 

- To finish off, I smoked out my lower lash line with colour no.4. Applied false Ardell Lashes and my Mac Gel Liner. 

The Cheeks 
-I used my Essence blush in - 40 Natural Beauty 

Lips - 
I mixed two Lip shades - Clinique Lipstick No.12 Blushing Nude & Rimmel 240 Undressed.

The Palette
Here is a link to where I purchased my palette from, I would definitely recommend  investing in a palette if you are a beginner or trying to experiment with new shades. The shadows in the palette are surprisingly very pigmented and blend well too. 


I hope you guys enjoyed this post, If you do try this look out let me know your feedback. Also if you have any suggestions for more beauty looks you would like to see, leave it in the comments below.
