This is a twist on the cut-crease, rather than a super sharp/defined crease, it’s more diffused! I paired it with a peachy-pink sparkly eye, and a soft nude lip.

Today’s tutorial is a quick Get Ready With Me! This is my go-to look, especially for the summer. It’s fast, easy, and helps make you look fresh and healthy! For me, this is a look I automatically go to when I’m in a rush or don’t feel like doing anything extravagant with my makeup.

 

Here are a few options to make applying this look quicker, if you’re really on a time crunch:

  • Skip the lash primer, and just apply your favourite mascara
  • Skip the liner – while this helps add some extra dimension to the eyes, it’s not always necessary!
  • Skip the cream highlight – or, just use cream highlight and skip the powder highlight. Layering definitely isn’t necessary, but if you’re a glow-addict like me, it’s just a quick extra step that helps me feel more glamorous!
  • Skip the lip liner/liquid lipstick, and opt for a nudey-pink gloss instead – this will give you a much softer, more natural look and will be much faster to apply

Today’s tutorial is a bronze, smoky eye using the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette! It’s a super easy look, and although it is a smoky eye, it’s a very wearable one that won’t leave you feeling like a raccoon. It’s definitely on the softer side of the smokey spectrum! You can customize this look in many different ways to suit your preference. You can make the shadow darker, pair it with a red lip, or add some glitter for extra drama! I hope you enjoy!
