MOTD + Pictorial — Olive Gold Cut-Crease

Helloo dolls!

I’m posting a pictorial a day early because I have a post planned for tomorrow, but I’m not entirely sure if it’s actually going to happen… If you see a post from me tomorrow regarding Fashion Fridays, great! Otherwise, I may end up posting something different or nothing at all.

That being said, I’m here with another look using the Alamar Cosmetics Reina del Caribe palette. This look is actually SIX (6) STEPS, so it’s a quick one. I’m having a lot of fun creating looks with this palette, I’m trying to be as creative as I can. Soon I’ll start working on my full review as I want to go in-depth as much as possible.


But let’s get on with the look of the day even though I did this look last week, lol. Maybe some of you saw it in my August 2018 Boxycharm Unboxing video.

I almost named this look “Nameless” because I couldn’t come up with an actual name for it (story of my life). It took me DAYS to come up with one, but I ended up with a very boring name, Olive Gold, and that’s just the shade description, LMAO! *Sorry, I hope to come up with a better one for the next look*.

Olive Gold Cut-Crease


STEP 1: Prime and set eyelids.
STEP 2: Apply Coco-taxi slightly above the crease — this is so the color shows for a slight gradient.
STEP 3: Apply Guantanamera on the crease, blending it upward onto Coco-taxi.
STEP 4: With the lightest shade of concealer “cut” the crease, and bring the concealer out past your eyelid — this will serve as a guide for your winged liner.
STEP 5: With a wet brush, apply El Malecon onto the lid where you applied the concealer. With a detail/pencil brush, apply Guantanamera on the crease to outline the crease in case it faded a bit with the concealer.
STEP 6: Apply La Costa on the inner corner and on the brow bone. Apply winged liner, tightline your eyes with black liner, apply white eyeliner on the waterline, curl lashes and add mascara OR add falsies to finish off your look.


I think I’ve been having way too much fun using the bold, bright colors in this palette, that this one feels ehh.. BUT, it technically is the most wearable so far so that’s a pro. I also feel like this cut-crease style doesn’t look quite right with my eyes but maybe it’s just me and I need more practice lol.

What do you guys think of this look?
And you like these pictorials? Should I keep doing them..?

        1. Awh thanks!!.😢😢😭😭😭😭 💜 💜 💜 you’re the best!.
          I definitely want to try more artistic looks, idk if you’ve ever heard of Rocio Ceja on IG, she’s so TALENTED and the designs she creates are mind blowing!! You should check her out.
          And yeah girl!!!! I’m so down for a makeup collab with you! And yeah I know, I still don’t mind doing the Disney ootds if you still want to though 😉 I kept some ideas just in case we ever got around to it anymore lol. But let me know what kind of makeup you had in mind, I know you said you wanted to try avant garde too, so there’s that. Or we could always do some sort of theme, or pick a theme for each other, etc. You can email me at or you can DM on IG 😁
