Makeup Inspiration: Audrey Hepburn Dramatic Cut Crease

 I was inspired by a really beautiful picture I saw online of Audrey Hepburn and wanted to slightly recreate it w/ products I have at home. Just to preface before anything, I am not saying that I look like her, nor saying I am wearing the exact same makeup she is wearing...inspiration more like it is the word.

The makeup she has here is a very dramatic cut crease w/ silver glitter, pink cheeks and pink nude lips. As I have hooded eyes, the cut crease won't look as dramatic as hers, but I tried my best so that it caters to my eye type.

Tips for the cut crease:
- whether you have hooded eyes, monolids, or deep set eyes, always follow the outline of your socket bone which should shape to somewhat of a half moon. (to find out where your socket bone is, press on your eyes and wherever the hollow part is, that's the socket bone.)
- outline with an eyeshadow first so if you make any mistakes, it can easily be erased
- use small brushes for precision
- keep practicing! and have fun! :)

...If you're feeling adventurous & extra bold, replace pink lip w/ a dark burdundy:


Until Next Time! :)
