STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL:
Step 1: Add a neutral base all over lids. I used NYX Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone.
Step 2: Apply a matte brown all over lids. I applied En Fuego from the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette here.
Step 3: Then, blend the edges with Low Blow, medium beige.
Step 4: Create a ‘cut crease’ by applying a creamy concealer all over lids, staying below the brow bone. You may take the concealer higher than your natural crease line to create the illusion of bigger lids. Set with the shadow Sauced.
Step 5: Fill in the inner and outer lid with He Devil, warm amber shade. This will create a halo, spotlight effect.
Step 6: Intensify the crease with Ashes, deep violet.
Step 7: Blend out the outer edges of the eye with Cayenne, medium brown,
Step 8: Apply black liner to the lower waterline. I used Milani Liquid Eye Liquid Like Eyeliner Pencil in Black.
Step 9: Smudge brown on the entire lower lashline. I used He Devil.
Step 10: For the rest of the look, I’ll be using the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette. Apply Amber, to the inner and outer corners to warm up the look.
Step 11: Smudge OUD, matte brown, to the entire lower lashline.
Step 12: Use Desert Sand, matte ivory, to blend beneath the eye and brown bone area.
Step 13: Use Musk, soft brown, to soften the edges around the eye.
Step 14: Apply Twilight, textured lilac shade, on the inner corners.
Step 15: Apply your fave black mascara. I used L'oreal Paris Voluminous Mascara in Black.
Step 16 (Optional): Your neutral, spotlight cut crease is done! Now, for the holiday glam! Apply a red or burgundy liquid liner to the upper lashline. I used Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Prim.
Step 17: Layer a textured copper shadow for added sparkles. I used Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette in the shade Cosmo.
