Hey, lovelies! Today's Try It Out Thursday features a technique that I see quite often: the cut crease. I was familiar with it in the sense that I knew what it was supposed to look like. Yet I had never tried it on myself before. This was quite a learning experience. I found that the technique has a bit of a learning curve, but it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. Still, I did struggled a little. There were originally 3 looks for this post but I trashed one of them because it was not up to standard. It also annoys me how the iPhone autocorrects colors and my skintone looks different in every picture! Enough complaining! :) On the the products I used.
Look 1, Colorful: Palladio White Eyeliner (base), Make Up For Ever #92 Eyeshadow (crease and lower lashline), MAC Aqua (lid), Bourjois Liner Pinceau (liquid liner), and Tarina Tarantino Fleur de Lash Faceted (mascara).
Look 2, Neutral: Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden (base), Tarte Eyeshadow (unknown name, lid), MAC Embark and Swiss Chocolate (crease), Make Up For Ever #159 Eyeshadow (bottom lashline), Cover Girl Blue Boom Eyeliner Pencil (waterline), L'Oreal Lineur Intense Carbon Black (liquid liner), and Tarina Tarantino Fleur de Lash Faceted (mascara).
Overall, I really like this technique. For me it's a dramatic look that I would wear during the nighttime. I think it also helps people with hooded eyes because you're essentially creating a very blunt new crease so it does make your eyes look bigger or more open. Hope you enjoyed this post. Here's a list of my past Try It Out Thursdays in case you want to check them out: Duochromes, Colorful Eyeliner, Nude Eyeliner, Colorful Eyeshadow, MAC Mixing Medium, Ombre Lips, and Red Eyeliner.
