Last weekend I wanted to try and create a subtle cut crease look. I was reasonably happy with the outcome, so I took a few photos and I thought I would share them with you. I used the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette to create my look as well as eye shadow and blending brushes.
From the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette, I took Mugshot all over the lid and blended this out using Liar, followed by Looner. I then took Trick under the lower lash line. Finally I applied Darkside and Blackheart through the crease and blended these out to create the subtle cut crease. To frame the eye I lined the top lash line with a flick of gel liner and applied mascara to both the top and bottom lashes. I also applied some individual lashes to the outer corner of my eye to open it slightly.
I am really happy with the outcome and you could easily re-create this with other shades. The top tip I would give is to have at least two blending brushes to hand, as the more you blend the more subtle and flawless the cut crease looks. To keep most of the attention on my eyes, I applied my neutral lipstick from Kiko in 'Pink Carnation', which I posted a full review of here.
What do you think of this look? Have you ever created a cut crease look yourself?
