Pictorial: Stila Countless Color Pink and Purple Pigment Cut Crease Look!

Hello Angels,

As promised, a tutorial using my new favorite Stila Countless Color Pigments shade "Indie".
Here is the completed look:

For this eyeshadow look and face I used the items pictured here:
Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 foundation in Soft Sable
MAC Mineralize skinfinish in Blonde
MAC Blush in Peony Petal

MAC paint pot in Groundwork
Stila Countless Color Pigment in Indie
Lancome color passport in Jet Set Shimmer
Wet 'n Wild gel eyeliner in Black
NYX eyeshadow in Blondie

MAC lipstick in Creme de la Femme
MAC dazzleglass in Roman Holiday

Here is the final look:

So...  Here are the steps:

Start with Groundwork as a base applied evenly over entire lid:

Now we creat the cut crease by tracing black gel liner from outer eye corner across 3/4 of the lid, a couple of millimeters above your natural crease (where this is is slightly different for everyone).  Gently smudge this line upwards as pictured here:   

Next step is blending the dark purple eyeshadow into your freshly cut crease and upward towards the brow bone.  Follow this by applying the NYX Blondie into the inner corner of the mobile lid: 

Now you're ready to apply the Stila pigment!  
Look closely at the shadow and you'll see that there is a lighter pink and a darker more fuschia pink.  
Start with the lighter pink, blending from the inner 1/3 of the lid (where the yellow leaves off) towards the center of the lid.  Then transition to the darker pink from the center of the lid to the outer corner.  

I used the light pink in the upper righthand corner of the Lancome palette for my highlight/browbone.
Now you blend blend blend!  
It's now time to apply eyeliner....
Using an eyeliner brush and the Wet 'n Wild gel, start from the inner corner of your lid and create an extension or "wing" just past the outer corner.  For the lower eyelid, I used MAC Feline kohl for the waterline as well as heavily into the bottom lashes and smudged a little bit to add drama.  
Follow this with mascara of your choice (I'm currently in love with anything by Benefit Cosmetics).
Please feel free to comment with any questions!

Happy Painting!!!
