Summer Holiday; dramatic colourful cut crease

A couple of weekends ago was my besties 21st birthday party, and the theme was summer/tequila sunrise so of course I had to go bright with the makeup! To make it a bit more dramatic I turned it into a black cut crease and tried to make it a little more creative :) I hope you like!

-120 palette: Red, Orange & Yellow on the lid.
-Nyx Black Bean drawn into the crease, & blended out with lots of black.
You can't really tell but I blended some blue into the black... I think I blended it away lol.
-Nyx White Pearl to highlight
-BYS gel eyeliner in the waterline
-Maybelline Master Precise eyeliner for the .. eyeliner.. & palm tree (just in case you couldn't tell what it was :)
-Nyx glitter e/l in Disco Ball
-#74 Red Cherry lashes

~Face/ Cheeks~
-Australis Paparazzi Perfect Fdtn
-I'm pretty sure I used MAC peachy keen
-Coastal scents 15 concealer palette (darker shades) to contour, set with Nyx Taupe blush
 -Some bronzer that didn't work out well lol

Nyx l/s in Pumpkin Pie (I think! or maybe it was summer love) & by the looks of it some lip gloss, ha :)

Also with the hair I wanted beach waves so I used a triple barrel curler, it didn't turn out how I wanted though, I think salt spray would have given more of a textured beachy look so I will try that next time.
Sorry for the messy edges... I did this not long before the party so I had no time for clean ups lol.. I've also stamped it later so I'll have to post a pic of that sometime :)
 I hope you like it as much as I did! Thanks for looking xx

    @viktoriasstyle thanks , I know my nails aren't to everyone's taste but i did do it just for the theme, Haha. If i had more time i would have used a sponge to blend the colours together.
