#MOTD Cut Crease Is Getting Better!

Happy Friday lovebugs! I am so ready for the weekend! Up at 5 every morning is taking its toll on me lol…

Today I have an eye appointment and will be trading my glasses for contacts. I’ve never worn contacts before, so I hope everything will work out because I am so tired of wearing glasses every single day of my life. It makes me feel like nobody can really see my makeup the way I want them to, being obstructed by black rimmed glasses! I don’t know—I am ready for a change!!!!

 

As you may know if you follow me on Instagram I have been obsessing over perfecting my cut crease skills. Everyday my IG is flooded with beautiful pics of these awesome detailed cut creases and I want to do it too! I think they look elegant.

So for today, I used my PÜR Soirée Diaries and Blinc Electric Eyes palettes to create what I think is a pretty damn good cut crease:

As usual, I started out with my MAC Soft Ochre Paint Pot for priming, and set it with Mogul from the PÜR palette.

Then I took my new PK 36 Tapered Blending brush and swept on Gala (PUR) a little above where I wanted my dark crease color.

Darkened the crease with Epic (PUR) with a Morphe M578 Pencil brush.

Brightened the lid up with Sphene (blinc) with my new PK 524 Oval Shadow by kind of pressing it on, with just a touch of Vanadini (blinc) on the outer V.

I think my skills are definitely getting better from everyday practicing!  When I first started, I had a lot of “OMG WTF” moments but now it’s getting a little easier.
