♕ Make Up Look ~ Sunlight Double Cut Crease ♕

Today's look is kind of a companion of my Moonlight Cut Crease look - although I didn't specifically created it for this purpose. When I looked at the pictures I noticed that they had some things in common - both cut crease, both feature glitters; the first one reminded me of moonlight, while this one is bright and warm as sunlight so... I "connected" them by naming this one after the sunlight ;D

As I said previously, this look features a cut crease too - but this time it's a double cut crease, actually - and some really dramatic liner style. There's one big new entry in my stash that debuted in this look: my new liquid foundation by MAC Cosmetics! My good friend Misato suggested me the Pro Longwear foundation, so I went, got colour matched (properly, luckily for me. I was wrongly colour matched a few years ago...) and bought it. My shade is NW15 and it's simply perfect for me *_* I'm loving this product so far, I will write a post about it soon hopefully though (gosh I have quite some products to show you!), I've been using for almost a month and I need to share my first impressions about it!
Anyway, I don't know if you can tell from the pics that I'm wearing it, but I've also used it in the cut crease process - see below. I'm excited because it finally gives me the chance to do more negative space looks :D
Oh and there's also an eyeshadow new entry! I finally bought Caramel by NABLA Cosmetics - it took me the longest time, but I got it at last XD

After priming my lids I started off by creating the crease shade. I used Caramel as main shade, blending it from inner to outer corner. I added depth to it with Glitz and, later, Unrestricted (all shadows by NABLA Cosmetics). To clean the upper lid, and create the neat cut crease effect, I used my new liquid foundation (Pro Longwear in NW15  by MAC Cosmetics); then I applied Cleo all over the lid, but leaving some empty, negative space - to achieve the double cut crease effect. On the lower lash line I used pretty much the same shadows I used on the crease area: Caramel first, then I added Unrestrcited and I used Nocturne on the lashline. On my brow bone I applied Antique White, while I used one of NABLA's highlighter, Baby Glow, on my inner corner.

At this point I applied the glitters, keeping in mind the eyeliner shape I was about to do next. I used GlitterTubes' pressed glitter in the shade Brassic, with no glue underneath. Then I created the graphic liner, using Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper. (Here's how I achieved this bold line: I did the inner part first, as I would with a normal line. Then I added the wing, making it really long and dramatic, and connected it with the main line. Lastly, I created the curved shape, adjusting the wing that became even more bold XD)
I don't usually do this step, but this time I cleaned the edges in the negative space by using the foundation again - achieving a perfectly neat double cut crease.
I completed the look by applying false lashes, mascara and a black eyepencil on my waterline.
