Well… on to the walk through and product review for today’s teal cut crease…
Eyes and Brows:
For my brows today I used the bareMinerals Brow Master Sculpting Pencil ($22 for 0.007 oz of brow pencil at Ulta) in the shade Coffee (darkest brown). I then cut my brow line and primed my lids with Beckysue Matte Eyeshadow Primer ($7.99 for 15mL on Amazon) in the shade White. For today’s look I used the I Heart Revolution X Disney Fairytale Palette ($20 for 18 x 0.03 oz/0.9g of eyeshadow, 3 x 0.2oz/5.8g of highlighter and 3 X 0.2 oz/5.8g of blush) The Cinderella palette. I started by using the shade Prince Charming (bright pure white – matte) from lash to brow line. As the transition shade I used Pumpkin (true pumpkin orange – matte). For the outer v of my crease (and the outer 1/3 of the mobile lids) I used the shade Bruno (deep true brown – matte). I then used a combo of 1 slight dot of shades #4 (pure white), #7 (light green) and #9 (bright blue) of The Handaiyan Matte Eyeshadow Cream Set 6 Colors by BELLESKY ($16.89 for 15 mL/0.34 fl oz each tube on Amazon) to cut my crease. I used the shade Drizzella (teal with a strong silver flip – metallic) over the middle 1/3 of the cut crease. Over the inner 1/3 of the cut crease I used the shade Gus (pale sea blue with a strong silver flip – metallic). I then went in with the shade Cinders (deep taupe – matte) and tapped that over the line of demarcation between the outer 1/3 and the end of the cut crease. For the lower lash line I used more of the shade Pumpkin (true pumpkin orange – matte) to create a drop shadow. I then went in with more of the shade Bruno (deep true brown – matte) tight against the lash line and then went over the middle of the lower lash line with more of Drizzella (teal with a strong silver flip – metallic). I then took a fluffy crease brush and a light tap into more of Pumpkin (true pumpkin orange – matte) to add a bit of dimension to the center of the lower lash line. I lined my lower water lines with NYX Slide On Eye Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner ($8 at Ulta) in the shade Tropical Green (mid tone yellow based green) I coated my lashes in Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara ($11.49 at Ulta) in the shade Blackest Black and popped on a pair of KoKo Lashes ($7.99 on the Lady Moss website) in the style Marilyn (I had to open a new lash pack because I accidently dropped the pair I have been wearing into my Cinema Secrets jar and that melted the lash band). I then highlighted the inner corners of my eyes using Glass Slipper (slight taupe with a strong silver flip – metallic).
I primer my face using L’Oréal Infallible Glow-Lock Illuminating Primer ($12.99 for 1 fl oz of primer at Ulta) and then contoured using the UOMA Double Take Contour Stick ($40 for 0.38 oz of a double sided contour stick) in the shade Brown Sugar. I highlighted the high points of my face using L.A. Girl Luminous Glow Skin Illuminating Cream ($3.49 for 0.18 oz of cream highlighter) in the shade Afterglow. I added Tarte SEA Breezy Cream Blush ($27 for 0.17 oz of cream blush at Sephora) in the shade Peach Sunset (peachy pink) to my cheeks. I then applied E.L.F. Camo CC Cream ($14 for 1.05 fl oz at Ulta) in the shade Light 120 N. I color corrected my under eyes using Makeup Revolution Conceal & Corrector Concealers ($7 for 4g/ 0.15 fl oz on their website) in the shade peach and then concealed using Revolution Pro Ultimate Radiant Under Eye Concealer ($12 for L/0.16 fl oz of concealer on their website), in the shade C1 (Fair to light, neutral undertone).
Cheeks, Lips, Lashes and Touch Ups:
I set under eyes using E.L.F High Definition Undereye Setting Powder ($9.99 for 0.44 oz of powder on Amazon). I set the rest of my face using bareMinerals Mineral Veil Finishing Powder ($27 for 0.30 oz of powder at Ulta). I touched up my bronzer using MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Face Powder ($36 for 0.35 oz of powder at Ulta) in the shade Give Me Sun (light summer peach tan) and my blush using Happily Ever After (* they say it’s a light bronze but it pulls more coral – matte) from I Heart Revolution X Disney Fairytale Palette the Cinderella story line ($20 for 18 x 0.03 oz/0.9g of eyeshadow, 3 x 0.2oz/5.8g of highlighter and 3 X 0.2 oz/5.8g of blush). I used the same palette for highlighter and used the shade Boo (gold). I lined my lips with NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner ($4 at Ulta) in the shade Whipped Caviar (muted plum) and topped my lips off with bareMinerals Mineralist Hydra Smooth Lipstick ($20 for 0.12 ounces of product on their website) in the shade Abundance (soft coral). I then used ColourPop Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Acid Setting Mist ($12 for 3.72 oz/ 110 mL at Ulta) to set my face. For touch ups I am using BH Studio Pro Matte Finish Pressed Powder ($3.50 on their website) in the shade 205.
I truly love a good teal eye… and paired with this lipstick It’s my favorite cut crease I’ve done to date.

I give this corrector a solid A+++!!! : This corrector works out much better than the banana one did for me. It brightened, blending in seamlessly. It’s a pretty good back up corrector for me.

I give this lipstick a solid A+++!!! : If I could give this lipstick a higher grade I totally would! It’s got a a great slip without traveling outside the lip line, it’s hydrating, and a flattering my lips but better shade. I dare say this may just have become my new favorite nude shade.
I Heart Revolution X Disney Fairytale Palette ($20 for 18 x 0.03 oz/0.9g of eyeshadow, 3 x 0.2oz/5.8g of highlighter and 3 X 0.2 oz/5.8g of blush) The Cinderella palette is billed as the most magical collaboration yet!

All featuring a storybook themed palette starring 18 eyeshadows, 3 matte blushers and 3 highlighters. A shimmer lip topper, a pair of faux mink lashes and a heart-shaped powder highlighter Cinderella Storybook Palette is an all-in-one face and eye palette, that has been inspired by the Disney classic collectible fairy tale books. Open to reveal a page of matte and shimmer eyeshadows from royal blue hues to dazzling teals, silver shades and pops of pink. On the other page, you’ll find three blushers in pink, peach and light bronze. Another three highlighters in silver white, bronze and gold.
I give the whole palette a solid A+++!!! This palette is amazing. The shades tell a cohesive story. The shades buff and bend wonderfully with no patchiness or skipping. There was some kickback in the pans but very little fallout on the face. The mattes are finely milled and pigmented and the metallics are super saturated pigment with a nice slip to them.
Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in great spirits and health.
Don’t forget to save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
