Look: Cut the Crease Attempt #1

I’ve seen some online tutorials recently spotlighting looks that use a technique called “cutting the crease” where the color below the crease is drastically different from the one above, and they are not blended together. I did a crazy attempt. It’s wild, bold, and loud! I don’t expect that others would readily wear this look “out” but it’s something fun and different to look at :-) I don’t like it much, and I don’t really like the blush with this look either. Should have gone more pink I think.

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: UDPPS (primer), Yaby Pearl Paints in yellow and blue, Yaby yellow shimmer e/s (lid), Deep Truth (crease line), Bang-on-Blue (above crease), Smashbox Oyster (highlight), UD 24/7 Deviant (liner), UD 24/7 Honey (lower lashline), Plushlash mascara
  • Cheeks: Enough Said BPB + NARS Albatross
  • Lips: Creme d’ Nude lipstick

    You cut the crease really well, I think. Damn I love Creme de Nude lipstick! Can you believe that when the first Cremesheens were launched in Argentina THIS was the only one missing?! Lol. Maybe a lighter hand with the blush next time? It doesn’t look that bad though.

    It took me forever to find that lipstick! I finally just broke down and had to order it online when they did their FF sale. I really like it – it’s much more wearable for me than Fleshpot.

    Yes, I’ve been quite heavy-handed with the blush lately and I need to cut that out :-)
