Cut crease eyeshadow is no joke. But you know what’s more difficult than doing a cut crease? Doing one on hooded monolids! This is why I’m so excited, guys. Where I have tried and failed before, I was recently able to successfully achieve cut crease shading on my eyes! Check it out!
I am sooooooooo stoked! And, hello, PURPLE EYELASHES!!! The folks over at Ardell Lashes are geniuses. But, yeah, I’m so happy to have been able to create such a clean, cut crease that looks impressive with downcast eyes, yet doesn’t look awkward when my eyes are open. (which can happen with this look if you don’t have a lot of lid space and shallow-set eyes)
- UD Primer Potion in Eden
- Maybelline Color Tattoo in Painted Purple
- UD Eyeshadows in Omen, Half Truth, and Blackout (15 Anniversary palette)
- Maybelline Lasting Drama gel eyeliner
- Kanebo Kate Super Sharp eyeliner pen (AMAZING, I’m dedicating a post to this tomorrow)
- Maybelline Full N Soft Waterproof mascara
- Ardell Color Impact Demi Wispies in Plum
The downside to these lashes, is that, for some reason, the band is white! It looks really obvious on, so I had to paint in the band with black liquid eyeliner once I applied them. Problem easily solved!
You can see that this is a pretty dramatic look with the purple. Honestly, I don’t think I would have felt comfortable going outside. Luckily, it was my day off and I stayed indoors doing homework all day. XD It would probably look pretty dope in matte nudes/neutrals, though!
Okie dokes! I hope you guys enjoyed this post. it was a really fun look to do and really rewarding for me, especially, because I’ve wanted to be able to do a cut crease for so long and was finally able to achieve it! I’d love to try this in different colors, maybe make a video tutorial for it. What do you think?
