Neutral Cut Crease

6 Sep

Hey there friends. In all my years as a makeup enthusiast (read: two, maybe three years) I don’t think I’ve ever done a proper neutral cut crease. Let’s remedy that, shall we?DSC08948

I got a bit creative with the pictures in this one, so consider yourself warned.

Man, I feel like Urban Decay’s Freelove (my lid shade) is such an underrated eyeshadow. It’s a beautiful subtle deep-orange-to-gold duochrome with a lovely shine. I heart this so hard.

Also I swear to god that crease took me AN HOUR to blend. I suffered for my craft today.

Cool effect though, innit?

Main products used were the Saucebox Batalash palette, UD Freelove, The Balm Mary Lou Manizer.

    I can’t believe this is your first cut crease. Girl you got skillz! šŸ™‚ Urban Decay Freelove is one of my absolute favorite shades. It’s just so perfect!

        Freelove is amazing! It’s always more gold than I’m expecting but it’s still stunning. (I always get it mixed up with X from Urban Decay so I googled to remind myself which one was more orange and your eye is the first google result! You’re basically a celebrity šŸ™‚ )

          Holy cow so torn between being super proud and super grossed out by old peasant makeup XP

    This looks really pretty. what did you use to get the cut crease? I still struggle to do this.

      Thank you!! I started with a small angled brush (like an eyeliner brush) and drew out the crease shape with medium brown, then I used a small crease brush to add progressively darker colors until there was a smooth transition between them. I’m not an expert by any means but I think it worked ok šŸ™‚
