♕ Make Up Look ~ Moonlight Cut Crease ♕

Let's have a small break from graphic liners (but they will be back veeery soon), today I have a cut crease look to show you! A round cut crease, to be more precise. I haven't done one in a while - like, more than one year.

I named this look "Moonlight" because it makes me think of the moon's reflection on the sea... Or the moon shining, outlined against the night sky. 

I specifically made this look to try GlitterTubes' pressed glitters in Twinkle, one of my favourite shade ever. That's why I avoided any graphic eyeliner stile - I wanted Twinkle to be the protagonist of the look, and I feared that an elaborate liner could distract from its beauty.

And finally you can really see Boo Berry's true colour! I tend to use it in combo with Neptune - they look great together, but Neptune always alters Boo Berry's shade... To the point it almost looks a completely different colour. But this time I used it alone and you can clearly see its beautiful denim shade!

After priming my lids I started off by applying the main lid shade - that would serve as a sort of "base" for the glitters; I used Frozen eyeshadow by NABLA Cosmetics, a pure silver, as I don't own any shadow that is even remotely close to Twinkle... So I thought silver would be a good compromise. I applied it on my lid and on the crease too, starting to create the rounded shape.
Then I moved on to the crease blending: I used Boo Berry eyeshadow by Makeup Geek Cosmetics as main shade, applying it with a pencil brush first and then diffusing the colour with a blending brush. At this point the silver shape was a little messed up, so I re-applied Frozen where needed.
I intensified the crease shade using Baltic by NABLA - with a pencil brush at first, but then I defined the round shape with a tiny teeny brush (Accent Brush by Real Technique, in case you're wondering). This small brush allowed me to be very precise and to achieve this well defined shape. 

When I was happy with the round cut crease, I applied glitters. As I said previously, I used Twinkle pressed glitters by GlitterTubes - and I applied it with a flat brush (Precision Crease by Spectrum Collections) all over the silver shape; I avoided the lashline area, as I hadn't applied eyeliner yet.
On the lower lid I applied/blended Boo Berry, defined the lashline with Nocturne, and then I applied some glitters there too (Sonic by GlitterTubes).
I applied eyeliner - this time nothing crazy, just a classical winged line. Of course, I used KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper - do I need to state that this is my one and only eyeliner from now on?? :p
Final touches: I applied a pinkish shadow on my inner corner (Sugar), a matte ivory shade on my brow bone (Antique White, of course!), a black eyepencil on my waterline, falsies and mascara.
