Cheshire Cat

Hi Guys and Dolls! The purpose of this video was to answer all the messages I get from people asking what they should do with makeup if they have less brow to eye crease space, or over all less lid space.Β  The “Three Section Method” I explain is not the only way you can do your makeup, but it is a good starting point if you’re just starting out and are confused about placement. I know I normally do a cut-crease style one way or the other,Β  and some of you felt like you couldn’t do your makeup like that, so I want to start doing makeup in different shapes, etc. Keep in mind that the 3 section method is generally less “artistic” or editorial looking. I think in a lot of ways it’s easier, and looks prettier super blended, so whip out those great shader brushes (Sonia Kashuk makes a BOMB one, it sells for 5.99 @ Target). This method calls for back and forth side-to-side blending, which in my personal opinion is easier than blending a lot of colors higher on the lid. The pinks and purples I used were from the “Cherry Blossom” Quadriset from Harajuku Hunnies. I really blended this down, and didn’t really make them POP too much, since the main purpose of this video was teaching, but trust me, this is like PAM BAM WOW when you want it to be!

I have to mention that this was partially Inspired my Jacqueline ofΒ  http://www.abrilliantbrunette.com/

  1. hey I love this look as super excited for you showing us different shapes… maybe this will be really creative in other ways not just showing easier styles but also some more editorial looks that aren’t AT ALL wearable but amazing to watch. I’m a huge fan and always will be cuz I feel you are a lot more honest about products than other gurus however I am big fans of them too… maybe speaking of alice in wonderland with this look… you could do a series of alice in wonderland looks since the movie images are SOOOO inspiring. Love you :)

  2. Hey Cora,

    Love the videos. I was wondering if you have heard of Fyrinnae Cosmetics? I think you’d probably enjoy them and they do samples for $1.75 each – which is amazing. I was hoping you could possibly do a review if you have, or whatever?

    I don’t know the best way to get into contact with you to ask, so I figured I’d post a comment here. :)

  3. Your videos always makes me smile, your so funny and talanted, love the colours so bright and yeah, colourful. Keep it up girl!

  4. Very fun and happy look! I did a Cheshire Cat look a while ago with Aromaleigh Products and I used Aromaleigh Rocks! colors, BlueOrchid on my lid with BoilingPoint in my crease. I actually think you would love those colors as the former is a matte and the latter is this gorgeous shimmering fuschia shade.

    Jilted looks fantastic! I totally need to pick up the Nyx Fuschia liner, as I only have Pinky. I think Jilted and Trainwreck are my favorite Urban Decay Lipsticks. :)

    Thank you for making the video, too! Your videos are always helpful.

  5. I love this look so much! I used it today and got so many compliments! I used different brand products and used purple eyeliner for the top and silver eyeliner for the bottom instead of the blue you used. You’re so awesome I love all of your makeup looks! Keep up the awesome work!

  6. I LOOOOOVE this look. I don’t have this particular palette, but I really want it now. I’m thinking of investing in a 120 palette. I am going through vintageortacky video withdrawal! This may sound super lame, but you’re really inspirational to me. I think you’re just gorgeous and I really love all your makeup work. :)

  7. Hey just in case anyone was interested, I was just looking at bitchslap cosmetics and I saw that they had similar – if not the same – quad for sale over there around the same price.
    Anyways, I remember Hunnies being sold out so I thought I’d let you know :)

    And Im kinda feelin a withdraw too! We <3 You Cora!!

  8. Such a pretty look! I have a hard time working with pinks, I sometimes think they look too bright, but looking at this, it looks awesome =) maybe I just need to get used to pinks =P
